If you’ve been looking into allot of stuff circulating the blogsphere, you’ve probably come across the concept of alpha and beta males. Pick Up Artist’s will try to emulate “alpha” characteristics. They will call the “average guy” an average frustrated chump and call him a beta. Well, those who have observed animals in nature have a third category. That is the omega.
“Omega (usually rendered ω-male) is an antonym used to refer to the lowest caste of the hierarchical society. An omega is subordinated to all others in the community. The omega is commonly the last allowed to eat.”
On Female Omega’s:
“An omega male, no matter how low he’s sunk, still has time to pull it out …. But everyone from Hollywood execs to Lori Gottlieb is always telling us how little leeway women have, how we’d better get it right pretty soon or we’ll be screwed forever. If women were afforded a little more time to fuck up, more omega female movies would probably be the least of the benefits.”
– Anna North
“While the alpha male wants to dominate and the beta male just wants to get by, the omega male has either opted out or, if he used to try, given up.”
“Omega males take many forms: Grose points to the whiny, wannabe public intellectual, the effete and preening metrosexual, and the obsessive video game junkie as representatives of this new class of men who have seemingly renounced traditional modes of masculinity.”
