There’s a reason the History Channel has produced hundreds of documentaries about Hitler but only a few about Dwight D. Eisenhower. Bad guys (and gals) are eternally fascinating. Behind the Bastards dives in past the Cliffs Notes of the worst humans in history and exposes the bizarre realities of their lives. Listeners will learn about the young adult novels that helped Hitler form his monstrous ideology, the founder of Blackwater’s insane quest to build his own Air Force, the bizarre lives of the sons and daughters of dictators and Saddam Hussein’s side career as a trashy romance novelist.

He's probably a terrible mistake here to make a terrible mistake with ME3 podcasts. I have started at least three podcasts just with atonal screeching like six. Yeah, it's a lot. It's a lot. It's a lot. Jamie Loftus, how are you doing today? Welcome to behind the ******** podcast. Bad people talk about them. You're doing great. You know, after the last episode, I'm I I think I've reached a low, simmering numbness. Which which I intend to spin in my favour. Numbness is really my only goal here. Hmm. I don't wanna make people better, I just wanna make them numb. I'm also simmering, but that's just because of my apartment is ungodly hot. Very hot. Pretty, though. It's very you know what else is hot? Plants live. Are you going to bring up the knife again? This is a new one, peacocking where we haven't hit a minute. Curtis Holland, very nice knives. Jamie knives? Yeah. Jamie? Yes. I'm just gonna gesture with this knife like the I hope you break your computer. It would be worth it, because at least I'd be holding a knife. Jamie, Speaking of holding a knife, you know who's what's holding a knife to all of our collective throats. Massage, elitism, misogyny, and capitalism. OK, lot of knives on our collective throats. Jamie. We talked about the manosphere, which was really just groundwork. I wanted to talk about the Sigma male now. I mentioned that thread, uh, that Lily put up in the first episode. It kind of got started me down this path, deciding we need to do a manosphere episode because the Sigma male stuff is also ridiculous. And in that in that post of theirs was a book called the Sigma Male. There's actually more than one that had a man in a suit with a sword on it. That's called the Sigma male, what women want. Well, like the Mel Gibson movie. What? That's a movie? Yeah, what women want. Ohh, no. Yes, yes, yes. What? Women want the movie, but not the Sigma male. The movie. Yes. No, no. Although I'm sure Mel Gibson would be down to participate in that as well. It it's so that book was written by Doctor John T Alexander, who builds himself as a relationship expert, and he authored the book The Sigma Male and also maintains the Tumblr Sigma male.tumblr.com. Wanna guess what kind of doctor John Alexander, the relationship expert, is? Gotta be psychiatry or, you know, something like sociology now. I mean, he's a podiatrist. He's a plastic surgeon, no. OK, that's funny, that's funny. But I wait until I find out more about his views then. It's very funny. But his book is not available on Kindle. It's only in text and it's sold out. So we have to go to his his, his Tumblr. We will be getting into a book, but his Tumblr. Just some ideas about what kind of I'm. I'm there. Whoa, there's a pop up. There's a pop, OK, there's a pop up that says the destructive effects of self pity. Self pity is easily the most destructive of the non pharmaceutical narcotics. It is addictive. Gives momentary pleasure and separates the victim from reality. Don't be a victim, Sigma mail.com amazing. Yeah. My favorite post on there is where are all the strong men? And it's he's he's critiquing it like a commercial for the Navy. Not reading that Tumblr. Oh no, you're gonna we're we're going right into this. Critiquing at length a commercial for the Navy Federal Credit Union. Yeah, I'm looking at that right now. What is she smiling about? It's not a strong man and it's it's another one of these commercials, right? We've seen this in commercials and then like a bunch of. Free sitcom. Like, it's a commercial where like some male soldier has done something dumb and a female soldier is is dealing with the problem, right? Like it's the basis of like half of every sitcom episode in the entirety of Everybody Loves Raymond, right? We all know. We all know this, this, this, this process all this time. Yeah. Our plastic surgeon friend is very angry about this. I've written extensively about this modern trend in advertising. So what else can I say? We'll answer this question. What would happen if the same ad aired with the roles reversed? Imagine Campbell looking fit in his sharp military gear, talking about the failings of some inept, dumpy woman guests who'd get left in the garage after that commercial feminist outrage. You'd better believe it. I hate. It's all very funny, this so much already. I'm like, already doing this. Like holding. So position, among other things. Like, yeah, it's kind of a tired trope. You know what else is a tired trope? The male action movie hero who saves the woman in distress who has no agency other than to be a victim. That is still roughly 40% of Hollywood's gross in, right. Like, yeah. And they're why are you writing stories written by men? They're they're these. This, this Tumblr kind of reminds me of, have you ever been on, like, those male inspiration, like, Instagram pages? That it's it's like called like success dot tips, but they're all Joker memes being like, if my wife was dead, I would have health insurance. Like, just truly, that's a direct quote. No, I'm kidding. But like those those success tip, I don't know. There's, I feel like there is a little bit of this mentality that is mutated over the years and now they don't go strictly under misogynist names. Sometimes they're like, we don't want to kill women, we just want success. Yeah, and you're like. Yeah, it's it's the whole. You get the gamut from the men's liberation to the men's rights to the Mig Tao to the doing this. What? I feel like you're trying to hypnotize us. You're like waving your knife back and forth. Waving a knife. It's it's it's my symbol of masculinity, Sophie. Yeah. Yeah. Well, ****. **** that **** and stop it. We're stop it. Are you? That's not. I mean, well, maybe that is Sigma behavior. What is what is Sigma behavior? Besides what would tell you when you're sick? And that one movie where he does nothing but shoot people. I mean, I'm sure he used a knife. At some point he had to have stabbed at least a couple of them. I mean, I don't. I still haven't seen a John Wick. I haven't. And that's my truth. It's not Keanu's best best mom, John Wick. A John Wick I haven't had. No. There was more than one. So the the plural is John's Wick, John. So John this, this ****** doctor, John Alexander's signale blog is pretty, pretty dumb. But it's also like it's not really ******** manosphere stuff like one of the like. It's it's bad relationship advice. One of them is not always even all that bad. Like one of the other one of them is are you ignoring your spouse's small Dragons where he talks about like, men not taking the Dragons are like difficulties in your life, and men don't take women's problems seriously. And like, you should take your spouses problem seriously, which is like, not like not bad advice. That's not super toxic. It's framed in a in a dumb way. But it's not like like, yeah, you shouldn't be ****** when somebody else is having a problem. He he also invokes the name of Bill Cosby on the first page. Sure does. He sure does invoke. And does not invoke the fact that Cosby is a serial ******. No, no, no. I mean, not that would not be sick, but behavior to hold other men accountable for their crimes. But I do it. It does kind of look a little like a misogynist leaning. Men are from Mars, women are from Venus, like Super, super binary thinking. Is it kind of along those lines? Yeah. I mean that's that's what it seems like and it's it's pretty boring and honestly. Not all that offensive. Which was why it's not what we're going to read today. Jamie. I have picked. Thankfully, I found another book about Sigma males. I know you were worried there for a second. For just a moment. There you were like, are we not gonna get the hot Sigma action that I crave? Don't worry. Just. I mean, yeah, this Tumblr doesn't want me dead. It just wants me yelled at. Yeah, I need more. Yeah, you need more. You need the Sigma male Codex rules for the Sigma male by Daniel Jones. And? Jimmy, I'm gonna ask you to Google just the words the Sigma male codex so you can get that cover because I need you to see the cover codex. I I wanna be on whatever list that comes up. OK. This Sigma mail code got. Of course it's all caps too. Does Sigma male codex? OK, is this the. Are we talking about, I think there's a wolf, there's there's two, there's two versions. Both are like Twilight set adjacent. They do kind of look like twilight posters. And then two versions there's a sequel. Of course he couldn't. You couldn't. You can't possibly say everything that needs to be said about the Sigma Mail. When one codex, I mean Jesus. I mean a single codex is never going to do wow. They really do have like Team Jacob imagery on the front of the Sigma Mail. Just a couple of wolves. Wow. Which is also funny, because the Sigma male supposed to be the loner, but you have two wolves on there. Anyway, so many questions I'm thinking is. Oh oh, Jamie, I just pulled right into oh, this isn't very long. We get through this whole book, we might just read the whole damn thing. I just opened to the introduction and Jamie, I'm just gonna start reading. OK, good. Yes, yes, yes. If you are reading this, then this. If you are reading this, then it means that you are very intelligent and in search of knowledge. And if you are reading this and you are not in search of knowledge, you will have it by the time you are done. That's one sentence. Congratulations, king. You can read now. Get ready for your life to ******* change so I know what you are saying. And he uses quotations here. Wrong. He has the first quotation mark at the end of saying and then a space with the actual quote that's supposed to be in quotations. No proofreading went into this. And so I know what you were saying. What exactly is a Sigma male? That was what I was saying. That is what you were saying. Well, the Sigma male by definition is a man who does not think or act like everyone else. Where the alpha male always wants to be seen. The Sigma male keeps a low profile as not to draw attention to himself, Also, the Sigma male is the most valued prize. Amongst women because unlike the alpha male, the Sigma male makes no effort to chase women. Rather he catches women with his intellect. One sentence. So are you telling me that the Sigma male is not like the other boys? I'm not like the other wise. I can't write a sentence, but I catch women with my intellect. Women are drawn to me by my inability to use periods or comments or semicolons. It's like the I know chaperons God, I'm just shaking my fist at the sky. No, the next sentence I am a Sigma male and it took me a long time to come to that realization. I knew that an alpha male because I had no desire to chase every woman that I saw. And I knew that I wasn't a beta male because they don't believe that they can get a woman. So I had to fall somewhere in between, which brought me to the concept of the Sigma male. It made perfect sense. I am educated and. Quiet and I am constantly analyzing everything around me. Every dude. I'm champion of the set. That was like, I'm an Ian SJPQR. If nothing else, this should convince you that you can you 2 can get a book published on Amazon. It takes literally nothing. It takes nothing but sheer willpower and word count. I mean, this is just 23 pages, so are you serious? Ohh yeah. The Sigma Male Codex is not a long, not a long book. Let's do this. I'm so excited. It's it's great. It's great. It became very apparent to me that because I was a Sigma male in my tolerance level that my tolerance level for ignorance and foolishness was about as thin as pizza crust. And then one day a light bulb went off in my head. Why not write about my experience as a Sigma? Mail a code if you will, and share it with others who may be Sigma males. And even if they are not, it can still be a useful tool than identifying a Sigma male. Which brings me to the Sigma male Codex. A list of codes and rules that govern the Sigma male from the time he gets. Many times that he goes Sigma mail. Robert? Yeah, yeah. Are you able to do a word search up top to tell you how many times it's in there? It only took a second to to buffer. Yeah, cuz the book's very short 265 matches. Pages, yeah. Ohh I am. I'm very happy to live here anymore. I just picked up Anderson because I needed emotional support. I just went into labor and I'm not even pregnant. Yeah, I think that by the time we're done reading this, I'm gonna give birth during this. This is horrible. I might become a virgin again. I don't know how this book is going to affect me. Spontaneous pregnancies for some real, real virgin lization for others it's it's quite powerful. I'm gonna kegel so hard my whole close. This is so horrifying. He's a cheese. OK, when it's all laid out and done, I think you will find this to be a very interesting read indeed. Never let anyone tell you that the Sigma male is not a high valued prize. Quite the opposite. He is more valuable than a pot of gold. And if this book is his Bible, then the codex shall be his gospel. Wait, what? The book in the codex is the same thing. Wait, OK, terrible writing. Yeah, he's just not a good writer. It's so bad that you can't really comprehend what he's trying to attempt to think. We're gonna have to look through this a bit, and then we're gonna have to pull up that video where it talks about how Keanu Reeves is the Sigma male to. To really get a full understanding of the Sigma. Yeah, I think that that will really put things into sharp focus. Finally. Finally, we'll understand. But first, he's listing the codex numbers, which I don't think this guy knows what a codex is. Is it really like a number? Codex #1, Codex #2, Codex #3, codex #4. Yes Jamie, it's like national treasure. He does not know what a codex is. It's exciting codex #1. The Sigma male means a numbered list when he says code number list list, but each of the numbers is a codex because he doesn't know that a codex is just like another word for book. Basically I think that he has like, I think he should bravely join me in not knowing what a codex is. Loud and proud, the Sigma mail reads. Which means he is obsessed with educating himself and gaining knowledge and wisdom. There's no. At the end of that sentence because he doesn't. This guy doesn't read enough. You know, this man takes pride in his writing, and that is the saddest thing. There's no periods at the end of any of these sentences. What is he? What is it? What is ending it? Nothing. It just stops. And then it's the next codex number. Well, maybe if you're a little more Sigma, you would. Maybe it's like a it's like a whistle only a dog can hear. It's a dog whistle. It's a it's a man. It's a man. A myriad. Only real sigmas can see a period. I'm OK. Anderson's looking at me like it's OK. Mom. Anderson's got some strong Sigma energy right now. I'm OK. It's just it's just a bad book. Oh boy. Now I'm starting to feel bad for this guy. Like a book like this could hurt anyone. Cause Codex #2 is. I don't know that this could. We may have. We may have erred in the wrong direction here. This kid seeming sadder and sadder to me the further we get. Because Kodex #2 is the Sigma male is very quiet. He is always analyzing and overanalyzing everything. I think this is a neurotic young kid. Who? Ran into some weird MRA stuff online and is processing it in a very dumb way. This is so yeah, so because it's like, yeah, there's a lot of quiet kids of every gender. This doesn't justify the codex. Codex #3 is like how he, the Sigma male, deals with women differently from the alpha male because the alpha believes he has to chase every woman. But the Sigma male understands that when you chase someone it implies they are running from you and at the end of the day. The goal is to get the individual to run to you, which is like. On a pathway towards a less toxic kind of thinking. And though it's not there. Yeah, like it this. I like the part where he's not chasing people. Yeah, I I think that should be encouraged. Is not chasing people around, but getting angry at people for not running to you. But I don't know. The Sigma male is the most powerful man in the room because he is the quietest man in the room. No, nobody. When the signals I'm feeling bad for this kid, now we may have to pick a different thing to do. I'm gonna let's roll to the end and see if we can find something out about him. Nope. What's the Jesus there are. There are so many codexes. There's 147 of these. What? Wait. OK, So what I was trying to tell you. This is a sad thing. There's many. This is very sad. Jesus. And should we take a quick little Addy break while we try to? Yeah. Let's take an ad break. Anything that's sad. Let's take an ad break and let's let's let's refocus here. I do. I have to look at. Oh dear God. OK, so I found this kids author Amazon author page. Let's talk about that for just a second. Before we go to ads. There's the Sigma male Codex rules for the Sigma male. The Sigma Male Codex volume 2. Which I guess is just more numbered things that a Sigma male ought to do. Uh, then there's the kemetic codecs, which the description is best selling author Daniel Jones. I don't think that's true, with his controversial new book the comedic OK. Written as a survival guide from Melanated people worldwide, this book explains explores the secret history of racism and its effects on black people. Among the topics explored in the book are the origins of the word racism, the origins of the Ku Klux Klan. Origins of modern day policing in the United States of America. The origins of gang violence in black communities, the origins of the Carens of the world, and the origins of Dracula. Yes, you read that correctly also. Ooh. And there's a short story. Captain racial slur. Umm, I don't know what's going on with this kid. He spells. He spells Daniel Wrong, first of all. Yeah, he sure does. I'm also seeing that there's a writer named Donnell Jones. Who. Danielle. Yeah. DANNELLEDA. No, just DA. Nell. But she pops up when you look up Daniel Jones, and it must suck to be her is yeah, this is this is this is rough. I we're gonna come back from ads and we're gonna regroup because I'm I'm starting to have second thoughts about about this kid's mocking this kids work because I think there might be some some real pain going on here.

Hey, Robert Evans here. It's been like two months since I got LASIK laser eye surgery and my vision still 2020. So many things about my daily life has changed. I don't have to worry about putting on a mask and my glasses fogging up and have to take out contacts at night or put them in the day. I don't have to like, worry all the time when I'm traveling. Like, how many contacts do I have by go swimming at the lake during the summer? Something I like to do, go to the beach or whatever. I don't have to worry about losing a contact or, you know, bringing swimming glasses or something. With me, everything is just easier. And getting it done was easy too. You know, I went in, I had my consultation, they told me I was a good candidate and then I went back in couple of days later about it being about a boom. You know, my eyes were perfect.

We're back. We're back. Yeah, sorry for the genuine horror. Yeah. Where you gonna go from here, buddy? Man, I am. What's your pivot? I don't think this kid's super toxic. I think he's. Dealing with some **** and. Probably shouldn't be throwing it out in books under his real name because it's embarrassing, but like. Kind of starting to feel sorry for him. Seems like a quiet, quiet kid who needs to be. Yeah, head turned in the right direction, and it seems like he ingested some toxic masculinity ideas from the manosphere, but it also doesn't seem like a A he's motivated by hatred of women. Fair. What's he motivated by? Well, let's see. Using proper sentence structure? Yeah, not he's not good at sentences, look, but there's stuff in here like Codex #131, the Sigma male. Suspicious of those who talk too much, Codex #133. Sigma Mayo understands that the only thing that separates a man from a monster is compassion. Yeah, yeah. I don't think this is. I don't think this kid's a monster and I don't want to make fun of him anymore. Interesting, fascinating little journey we had there. We find out that. We find out that we're actually the monsters. I mean, he's a little bit yeah, it's it's it's it's it's a pretty dumb book. Look, you write a bum book. Some people are going to look at it, but we're also mature enough adults to know when it's time to roll over to YouTube and watch something that will be easier to make fun. Let's choose the real battleground. Yes, the battleground of YouTube. How should we play this? Are you gonna just you can put it in the chat, we can all watch it and then Doug can add it in afterwards. Hi, Doug and Doug. I will put the link in press play at the same time. Yeah. OK, I'm putting it in. And it's up to up to 194,000 views already set. So I think this is gonna be a more more fertile ground for us to dive into. OK, I see the link just getting through the ads, let's say. It's just an ad for Wanda vision. I don't wanna hear about monday.com. Sorry, nobody wants, no one has ever wanted to hear about monday.com. Unless they sponsor our show, in which case, the entire thing, because this is a lot. It's state minutes. We'll start and stop it. We'll see where it takes us. We got another book we might dive into. This is all learning process. Alright, alright, do we ready? We're doing great. Yes, I'm starting start. I'm starting a Sigma mail. The rarest type of the rarest type of guys. Welcome back to Alpha Show, a chat with the show. Completely change your life from negative to positive and make you the person you always wanted to be after this video giving strong pickup artist vibes, male personality. I love these kinds of videos where they just have her disembodied hand draw the most ****** ** thing you've ever seen in your life. Sigma males are a rare breed of men and arguably the most appealing to the ladies. Ladies. Quite different from the normal dominant alpha males and the ladies. Ohhh yeah, this is where we should be. Lone wolves who do not. This is better. OK, we have a we have a whole milk. Men can dominate others. They can dominate despite for 19. Oh, and they are a kid, not lobby for leadership. Oh wait, they're not a king. They are coal. And Robert, I'm not enjoying the alpha males. Nevertheless, they're saying should not be mistaken for weakness. Or China. But before we start with this, I've I've never seen a video where the graphics really made it more confusing to understand. I'm so they're already doing an ad based on three different 30 day challenges and more very useful things so completely transform. He's he's he's both saying that November likens mastery. OK, OK, we have to pause because there's a lot going on, on screen. So where I paused it, he's gone from saying that the Sigma male is the most desirable kind of male to women. Take this to the comments, because the top comment on this video read is from cosmic klutz chat to cosmic klutz. It says. Fun fact, one in every 10 Sigma males have the potential to go one step higher and become ligma male. Robert Robert do we think it's a good keep falling for him over when this dropped? Yeah, November 11th, 2020. That was like a week post. Post election, yeah. I mean we were probably, I don't remember if we were still, we might have still been counting votes then. So this incredible video, this amazing video goes from being like the Sigma male is the most desirable kind of male. Because unlike, you know, the alpha, he's not obsessed with being in charge. He can dominate, but he doesn't have to and that's why women like him the most. And it then goes to offering its new course, which is 30 days, to alpha. The alpha shows, gonna teach you how to be an alpha male in 30 days. And there. This course includes 3 challenges through transforming your life. I don't think we're about to learn, but there's a lot going on on the screen. Not only did they misspell the word transform, and they misspell the word confidence because it lists as parts of the course confidence, mastery, but CONFIDENTS. This is it. No FAP mastery next. I can't. Like, you made it to be an alpha by not ************. This is why anytime a comment section is like, why why are women talking about astrology? I'm like, listen, there's bigger fish to fry, OK? Yeah, that's ridiculous. Yeah, much. That's my question. I think we're about to learn. I'm gonna unpause. I think he's gonna about to write complete life mastery. Yeah, you're gonna get complete life mastery by rocket your confidence by over five times. Master the power of Nofap. Master the power of no fan. The alpha of your group power link in the description. Yeah, that was just an embedded ad. And full alpha male attitude seriously wants to be mean. It was seamless. There was the beta delta Omega males really considered less manly to the dominant alphas in the hierarchy of male personality types. But have you heard about the excitingly mysterious signals? Exciting mysterious segment drawing that are happening? Make this more promising. Alpha male, 3 minutes and then all of a sudden there's a ton of confidence and no nonsense approach to life or the head of I like, I like that they we've got the pyramid imagery doesn't fall into line, but personality psychology, right? They're just drawing vector. 209 because he just he's he's going through the hierarchy, and he notes that excitingly, everyone had just thought it was Alpha, Beta, delta, Omega. But personality researchers have discovered the exciting Sigma male. So this is a new we've we've we found a new man. New man just dropped guys. And this new man, the Twist? He's got a personality and it's making these videos. Ohh wow. OK, I'm gonna press play at 209 and we'll see what the these are the main how to become a signal. You're hard to get, being hard to get and hard to get. That's literally what it says on the page right now. They seem to have always been around OK signals do not care what others think, which is why you're watching attention for both good and then it says frustrating. Soviet you're you're ahead too. You're too far ahead. We gotta, we gotta we gotta take this one bit at a time. I'm cheating because it was horrifying and I was trying to Fast forward. It's very Sigma of you. You should know about Sigma males. It's very Sigma of you to jump ahead, Sophie. But we gotta we gotta take this methodically. You know, I I'm at the part that says here are what you should know about Sigma males. That's the headache. These are the males and make their own rules. Well, here here are what you should know. They don't have a problem. My answer? Males do not care about what others think. Yeah. And then there's a tent picture, right? Doing their own thing on the fringe? Yeah. Yes, they get. I'm watching, I'm watching. There we go. There's the 10th. But I think I understand that we don't know. Yes. So he says that Sigma males are travelling nomads who search for knowledge rather than material things you should know. Which is why we have the clip art of the tent and the car next to the clip art of a guy on a laptop at night. I would not be able to understand this if not for this. Helpful. Illustration rather they can decide to go solo for awhile. OK, it's from people and they don't take orders from people and don't usually conform to society system at the rebel of the male groups. But they are very attractive to women because they appear to be self-sufficient and capable of making just like cut this scene from anyone or anything too much. They can decide they can, but he does go solo for awhile. What is intriguing about they can males is that there need to be alone is just temporary. They get an early. I'm. I'm at 319 showing from society now. I'm at 3:45. Wow. We're all if people were more flexible and willing to see things differently. It is not the Sigma males want to be alone as such. Well, they're right now. They're creating fascinating things. Starting businesses, quiet partners, hard workers. OK, Sigma. Fascinating thing. OK, I'm at 4 meters. Misses a quiet partners and hard workers create Sigma males will create fast start businesses. The opposite. I'm trying to make this be comprehensible for people because we need to understand. Like honestly, the more this goes on, the more I'm starting to think that what the Sigma male thing is, is a grift. Specifically targeting like nerdy and kind of antisocial young men who don't want to, who like don't want to be an alpha male because they're not jocks or into sports or anything like that, but they want to believe that they can be like trained in order to get. Women. And I think that the like everything that this keeps emphasizing, like they're quiet and they spend a lot of time alone and they like make things on the Internet and all this stuff like, it's this I I can see who they're marketing to. It's the guy who wrote that Sigma male codex. It's like lonely and kind of confused young men who aren't nearly as toxic as like the kind of guys who are obsessed with being alpha, right. Like they're not gonna they're not gonna take like steroids in order to gain the perfect alpha body and. Fat like or get be like an like the in cell types and obsess over like bone structure uh it's like but they still like it does just seem like a grift directed at yeah shy young men who want to be accepted for who they are. I I think that's exactly what's happening here. Able population would be just grifting from yeah can we all agree to start at 4 minutes now so that we can properly give context? All right, 4 minutes exactly. OK, alright, I'm pressing play. Become a Sigma male. How to become a Sigma male? There is a difference. You're hard to get, hard to get, and being hard to get first is intentional and hard to be frustrating for ladies who find such men attractive. The second is natural. So Sigma males keep things close to their chest. I love the close to the chest drawing there. Vector art grabbing his heart nails. Do that. Do your own thing. Everyone is screaming and OK them to do something. Every Sigma mills do their own thing. When everyone's screaming and yelling just that they see no point in living their life. It's not what they're trying to be. Difficult rule. This is 3. You could be the alpha describe. You're not the one that you could be the alpha. That they have all the qualities of the alpha male, but they choose to display none of its if you've had several chances and the abilities that I'm not going to leadership roles like the other girls. Oh my God. OK, Sigma male. Oh no. At 4:50 to get me the line that just broke. Yeah, I, I, I. It's very clear what's going on here with the line that, like, if you've had chances to take leadership roles but choose not to, you're definitely a Sigma male. It's like if you are. If you feel like your lack of confidence is holding you back from getting women or succeeding in your career, that's what makes you a Sigma male. Because you're choosing not to like that. Like, it's it's very clear who they're marketing to, right. Like it's it's the kind of, it's a it's an attempt to package some of the manosphere classification of men's stuff for a group of men who are like not they're they're they're not toxic enough that they're going to like, want to jump into the men going their own way communities and they're not in cells and they're not like they're gonna dive into the proud. Boy, Alpha male culture ****. But they've gotten a little bit wrapped up in this stuff and it's just like, it's very what I'm curious about is like. I understand the demographic they're catering to, but what do they want you to do? Well, that's very unclear. Change. OK. I was like, what is the plan? Like? I understand. What's the personality clear. But I feel, I feel like I've consumed so much content and yet I don't know what the goal is. After these ads, we're gonna learn what they want us to do. Don't say much, is #1. Easy. You should only speak when you need to speak, which that are awkward little friend's book said the same thing, right? But it's just like, OK, you're describing continuing to be shy. Like, yeah is the I think this is people. This is young men who have gotten drawn into aspects of the of the manosphere, but also whenever they meet like pickup artist types or like uh, men's rights activist types, they find them infuriating and because they're terrible, like if people who are. Who are have enough on the ball to recognize how horrible the manosphere is, but also don't have enough on the ball to not have gotten sucked in a little bit. But, and this is there's enough to gamify all of their social interactions. We a rebel, like. It's just so generic it's fascinating. It's really. I'm really I'm kind of confused as to like. Let me I think the way I can explain it is like the manosphere is an ocean and it's like an ocean of **** but it's an ocean. And this is the Sigma male subculture that seems to be in the process of developing. It's like a tide pool of **** right? It's near the ocean. It's influenced by the ocean, but it's its own little ecosystem. Pressing play again. But what are they trying to? Are they just trying to have sex? Is that it? Yeah. I mean, they're all just trying to have sex, right? Like that's the core of all of this. Is how do I have sex with women. These are the guys who don't wanna do the pickup artist stuff or the but do they want like to form meaningful relationships? Like they don't want meaningful relationships. It goes be mysterious, be a rebel. And then it says the women will fall all over you. Yeah. I've got another ad, Jamie. I yes we'll we'll move on from this video in a second because it's cool what's going on. I think that like obviously none of the people who get wrapped up in this. Have their primary concern being meaningful relationships, but I think, yeah, the the folks who fall in for the alpha male ******** don't want meaningful relationships. They just want to **** right and ****. Yeah, the people who fall for the Sigma male things think that they do want a meaningful relationship, but they also objectify women and can't not gamify the entire process of courtship because they've been scary pyramid. Yeah, they've been broken by the Internet in similar but different ways. It's this is fascinating. They did not call this when we started this little live investigation we're doing. Yeah I I I'm I'm interested in this because you like it has all of the toxic elements that like early **** does. But it doesn't quite seem focused on something, you know? Which is like not like there has been almost no focus in that video or in the other book about like women. Like there's not it's not the same attempt to like we're not seeing the Vox Day stuff yet of like, here's the different categories of women and. How you like woo the different types of like it's not aggressively anti women, at least not the stuff that we've dealt into yet. It's focused, but I mean obviously it's still toxic like right when you're trying to like reduce people to a hierarchy, a pyramid of masculinity, like that's unhealthy. But it's a fascinatingly different kind of unhealthy from the stuff we talked about last episode. This is very interesting to me. 7 Now they say they're not the type of guy who would jump from one woman to another. Instead they try to find a woman who is self-sufficient like them. An independent Sigma men find these things attractive in the opposite sex. So like. Again, that doesn't like, it's not the worst advice in the world. I mean, I know that we are. We have just been like, you know, treading **** for the last couple of hours. But like, yeah, this is like the least scary ****. But it looks and it's styled and it's presented like all the scary ****. So maybe it just hasn't gotten scary yet. I don't. Maybe, yeah, that's what I'm trying to decide. People state. Is it going to, like, get scary? Because right now what? Not saying that's nice. That I expected to see is I haven't run into anything in the signal stuff that makes me think somebody reading this is going to shoot up a yoga studio, right? We we haven't hit that point, did it yet. Is that coming or is it like, is this gonna pick some men who might have wound up in that funnel out and teach them slightly less toxic ******** that's still toxic, but not as I don't know. I don't know. I think what we're going to watch next. After this next ad break, there's another video that was suggested to me by YouTube's recommendation algorithm based on the first video and it's much more popular. It's called 5 habits of the Sigma male by einzel ginger. Ohh, and it it has 841,000 views, so. Yeah, I think this might be a I think this might be. This might this might lead us to some answers.

I don't have to worry about losing a contact or, you know, bringing swimming glasses or something with me. Everything is just easier. And getting it done was easy too. You know.

Welcome back from break. We're about to start 5 habits of the Sigma male and start. I'm sure that you have heard of the alpha and beta males at some point in your life. In popular culture, these terms based on the alphabetical use way to describe meal staring into an empty box and they would be considered under this audio hierarchy while the beta males are right below him. Generally an alpha male takes charge while a beta male follows and serves. Many men do not fit the alpha and beta rules. Men contain multitudes based personality, that's why they're smart. Alphabet based personality is this get it? The signal is the one who does not identify certain place in the hierarchy. Moreover, he uses the hierarchy to his advantage. He loves freedom. It's so weird because I feel like they're trying to present something outside of this like ******** masculinity, binary that's developed and then it's like, but this is just a new part of it. It's not. The binary still exists, but this is. What did this? You were so shamed. Or is it just me? Yeah. A Sigma mail is by nature a non conformist. This is the first habit going left when everyone goes right. Yes, he can be social and enjoy social and other. This audio we have a picture of a man walking alone in the snowy woods. I've done very, very twilight herd behavior. It looks like Mr Robot fan art. Yeah, he's a real Sigma. He does not like. Yeah, he's himself. Rami Malek and Mr Robot. Many travel. Classic Big tourist segment. When he goes for a hike, he prefers uncharted areas. He's an explorer. He's a rebel. He likes the uncharted area and mass hysteria. I know he's literally mean that he pee Wee Herman world when he feels like he blends in. He knows the hurt. He knows how to act like one of the hearts. OK, so she's graphic. Like, alright, I'm gonna skip ahead, define what's not. Have it #2. Habit #2 is, he often goes on dates with himself, with himself. Which is like, again, not everything. Yeah, it's like, yes, that that that's a healthy thing to do if you're not gamifying the entirety of your existence, because. The Internet is so thoroughly broken you still this freaky like man pyramid that you have to squish into a layer of it's so. God, it's really. Yeah. I don't know this he is. He travels alone somewhere far, far away. I there's a lot of lonely people like, yeah, this is a weird way of explaining loneliness. He keeps saying this and he doesn't understand. Yeah. Yeah, it's long. You're lonely. Alright, well, the next thing that has been suggested to me after this very same Robert. No. Yeah, we're doing this. Sophie. I'm driving this bus. I'm the Sigma. Yeah, well, I'm your overlords. I'm not doing it. Yeah, we we have to. We have to. Sophie, do you really want to listen to all of that? We know what it's about. I don't want to listen to any of this, but here we are. Men in the woods. It's about it's literally about men going their own way, if you would. It is about men going their own way. That's the thing. I can see this leading into the less scary way. I I I'm so strange. I'm very curious because it seems like just even based on what we've been talking about, that these movements start a little bit like blobby. They don't quite know what they're doing. And then and then something happens and they settle on a goal. Yeah. The sigmas don't seem to have. If their goal yet other than that they like to vacation alone and read books, you're like, OK, I do like the attempt to turn being lonely into a culture. Yeah, yeah, and into a type of male who is irresistible to women but also doesn't usually is hard to get but by his own choice. Yeah, I guess that's maybe gonna lead to less mass shooters. Yeah Jamie, do you feel like this is quite literally the I'm not like the other girls trope, but yeah, like in gender reverse, but for boys? No. Well, I I I think it is like the same logic, but like I'm not like other girls trope to me is seems like a lot like it is to say something very simple as a way to like say that you are like, I feel like I'm not like other girls. It's just another way of being like girls are too much drama. You know, like women who say they don't hang out with other women because girls are too much drama and that's why they're like, I'm not like other girls. You can ******* shove me in a trunk and I won't scream like that kind of I oh gosh, it it makes me. That's like a a different kind of sadness to me. But they are just saying I'm not like other boys. I'm lonely. And it's like you're like a lot of boys, you're like a lot of people, you know? Everyone's lonely. I'm hitting some scary stuff at this point down the YouTube rabbit hole. I don't know. There's two things that have come up on my recommendations list that both really concern me. One of them is Sigma male affirmations, 2 hours of reprogram reprogramming spoken by Sigma Spirit. Now. This is made by Mindful Waves Studio and we're about 157,000 views on this. They're making Sigma male ASMR wait. And they call it reprogramming, which is that kind of scary. Yeah. I don't like the start of a positive movement. OK, so maybe this is because I'm. I'm like, maybe the video we first watched was kind of a 101 thing that's like, hey, are you lonely? Stay on this algorithm path. Yeah, I think that's. I don't know. I hope it's not like this. This seems like a different kind of grifter than the traditional. A pickup artist or the the manosphere grip there's almost more self help. I I wanna read the mindful way of studios description of their affirmations. Are you with Sigma male? No. Sigma males have a unique set of skills and qualities that set them apart within the social hierarchy. In many ways they are the most interesting and attractive types of men. Mysterious, introverted, intelligent and charismatic and unpredictable ways follow along with my reprogramming Sigma male affirmations to absorb these strengths. Understand your Sigma self and win as your own unique person. That's scary. And then you go further down and it explains our video. Yeah, there's an 8 hour video, which in case you want to. Here's the hell out of me. It has the cover art from justified. So I guess the way the cop from justified and John Wick are the two big Sigma male, huh? I thought you were saying well justified like that Justin Timberlake album, but I was really confused. I feel comfortable saying this because it's a man speaking. This is the most vocal fry I've ever in my entire life. Is the Sigma male affirmations OK? I have to. I haven't listened to it yet. All right, I'm starting. Not sure. Oh no. My introversion has no vocal fry through whoever's listening to it, and I don't have it playing. I have no issue with vocal fry, but neither do I know who's complaining about it the most. Yeah, that's but don't know why you're special. It's because you're a Sigma male and attractive. Yeah, we're the most interesting and attractive types of men. Introverted, intelligent. Should masculinity of a samurai without a master? Really say that? Yeah. I fast forwarded to an hour and I'm like, OK, So what does he say once he thinks you're asleep? Alright, I'm gonna hit 110 and see what he tells. My introspective nature allows me to harness deep reserves of my nature, allows me to harness deep reserves of power capabilities. Wow, my introversion has wonder if this is no fab too. It's a deep bond with people. My introversion has magical capabilities. Yes, that's an iconic yeah sure. Magical high sexual marketplace value? Ohh no. I am like a covert operative who defends. Feel comfortable telling him this is a totally different kind of toxic than I thought it was. A samurai without a mask. I have the social skills. Of an assassin that penetrates a walldoff society to complete his mission. I am hard to understand and this makes people try harder to climb the highest peaks alone. My skills with women are based on my deep, core competencies. I have the courage of a sniper. I've been saying this, OK? I just feel like they all want to be Jughead from Riverdale. I have deep layers. People try to crack open. I'm great with women. I'm like a covert operative who depends on them. You look scared. Women are constantly being sucked into my nose. Oh God, I have my mysterious masculinity is adorable. Women are incredibly curious to open, so it is just like, repeating very specific, scary like, whatever. Like toxic affirmations. But there's no but there's no action. There's there's no action. It's not like the other pickup artist stuff. Like, they're not they're not teaching men tactics to pick up women. They're trying to convince introverted loners that if they just accept. Being an introverted loner, that's the hottest thing you can be, which is like Jughead from Riverdale like I have. Yeah, it is literally. It is. It is literally whatever. Sprouse brother playing Jughead from Riverdale. This is what that is, but yes, so weird. You don't need to but that is the. That is the point. I did not expect this to be the lessons that we took out of today. He's like, it's weird, but I. I don't know. I mean, I it's it's weird. Yeah. And of course, there's Jordan in my recommendations, there's Jordan Peterson videos. There's a lot of my God, this is a gateway drug. There's, I've seen at least 40 hours worth of videos of Sigma male affirmations. Oh my God, this is just. You can what? You can pass out for a day and a half and not run out of Sigma male affirmations? Yeah. Sigma male strength guided meditations. This is an untapped market. I'm about to log the **** in and be like Sigma mails. I totally I I'm drawn into your vortex. Yeah. The one guy no girl can resist the Sigma from the far from average YouTube channel with 1.29 million subscribers and there's nearly 1,000,000 views on this video. We're gonna end by going over this last video. Guys, I'm gonna send you this link. What you saying? Well, my question, I guess is like. Repeating to yourself that you're the greatest person in the other world, like in in the entire ******* world is not gonna make women like you more. It is. So what happens when inevitably you realize that? What happens then? Yeah, because it's like there's a there's a level to which some of the stuff they're saying, this idea that, like, I am awesome and great because I'm my own. Like I'm I'm an introverted, smart person who doesn't need other people or seek to be an alpha. That's not like that's. I mean, I've read equivalents of that. Teen magazine. There's a there's a version of this that's like on the road to healthy thinking, but it's all wrapped up in I am the best and most attractive type of man out of the categories of man that there are because I'm a Sigma man and that's like that. All that. It's it's both on the verge of like someone heading in a healthier direction and also on the verge of Elliot Rodger **** right? Like this. I mean the most attractive and perfect kind of man because I'm a signal what happens when you're the kind, when you keep. Being a Sigma male and the women don't realize that you're the most attractive kind of man. Exactly. That's where something bad happens. Like I, but they don't say that. It's so confusing. OK, so it's it does remind me because like whatever, on both sides of this quote, UN quote. Like binary, right. It's like women are asked to reach a level of perfection that they thought they could not possibly exist. But then the sigmas are over here saying I have achieved that. I am the most perfect person to ever exist. And people just don't see it like. But but what happens when people, when they just continue to be lonely? How do you, yeah, explain the scary thing, right? What happens when none of this works and you keep being lonely and not as like, what happens when sitting alone on your computer and reading books doesn't give you as many girls as the alphas you imagine exist? Right? Like that? Yeah. Then do you start shooting up a yoga studio? Seems like a disaster waiting to happen. Yeah, I'm so I'm very confused. This is this very different but fascinating. I, I I sent you a link I wanna close on this last video cause it has like a million views and it's titled the one guy no girl can resist. So ladies, we'll watch this and you'll let me know if you think this the guy this this video is describing can be resisted because because I can't evaluate that objectively. So are we all ready? I'm ready. Alright, play, you're about to Lurt might far from average. You're is the name of the channel with 1.29 million subscribers. Look on girls and how to interact with them. What many people fail to realize is that we live in a world that is governed by a social hierarchy. This system determines where people and groups of people, starting with the hierarchy, the chain of command, or the pecking order. Jesus Christ. It's just an unseen ranking system everywhere you look. Image Pyramid then, scary this governs everything you do, everywhere you look. This is the system, individuals or groups in the upper echelon of the system that will the greatest power in high school or college. This is these are the ballplayers. the Super attractive, so toxic from the moment mankind developed a civilized society. The ones at the top have always received the greatest rewards the ballplayers can pretty much pick. It's also just really interesting. Like, yeah, the like narrators and the tone of voice they have social. And how every single person on the planet is part of the social hierarchy is part of a yeah, it it is like kind of a more normal sound because it's like when you go back to like pick up artists, YouTube. Back in the day it was like these guys who were ******* jacked and couldn't move. Ohh gosh, this is to become really toxic stuff. The number one everyone in the world is part of this hierarchy. Alphas were born with genetics that make them dominant like that. Again, what is with the weird hibbart situation going on in these videos? Nice guys. And views like suggested videos for me are Joe Rogan. The mirror method where? Sway house. Yeah. Tick tock. Wow. Whatever type of nuts. Yeah. Oh God. And there's another video from Einzel Ganger that Sigma male or Joker? Oh no. Yes. See, I know it. It always. OK first of all, does anybody have to get ready to get a girls best with you stealth seduction. No, no, other than being OK there. OK, that has 230K. This is a gateway drug. Is is is my summary of it all. Yeah, this is all very toxic. So how this sounds, yeah, this this sounds like when whenever you're at zinu level with Sigma stuff, something really ****** ** happens, but it just takes a while. Like, yeah, it simply means that they don't. Like there was a piece written about Sigma males in male magazine a couple of weeks ago. Right up by my friend Miles Klee, who says I don't like it's no one seems to know what this ******* thing is. It's like a red pilled man who doesn't actually want to be an alpha because being an alpha and becoming an alpha is too much work. So therefore you just say I am already in alpha. Some would call a weakness, but then what? Like, I'm as good as an alpha, but I'm. I'm a different kind of man. That's actually better because I'm cool. Mysterious and women like me better, but also, I don't have to spend a lot of time around women because I'm a loner and doesn't speak. They're they've fled ******** pyramid of their own making to begin constructing a new ******** pyramid. I don't know what you just watch Riverdale now. Just a just an amazing about this. That's what that series is. The hierarchy. My God, there's the Jamie guy and the Sigma guy. They're best friends and it's just. Something just yeah. Well, I think we've gained a proper understanding of the Sigma male today. Gateway drug drug S Riverdale summary. Yeah. So I guess our our three Sigma examples are jug Dale Jughead from Riverdale. Exactly. On Wick and the guy from justified according to our YouTube recommendations, algorithm seems. Characters who are objectively a danger to themselves and others. 6 facts well, this has been a fascinating exploration. I think we've all learned everything that we need to know. Well, I'm glad that far, that far, right? Red Pilling operations finally have their version of astrology to enjoy. Good for them, good for them. Good for them. Too bad. There's going to be a ******* body count. Inevitably, with **** like this. I'm excited. I'm in pain. Well, that'll about do it for us here at behind the ********. That's Yep. Jamie, you wanna plug anything, any any Sigma videos you're gonna be checking out next? No, and in fact, I would ask that people don't link me to more Sigma information. I don't want any, you know more than I do all of the questions I have posed in this podcast episode. I don't actually want the answers. And please don't tell me them if you know what they are. I'd like to live completely in the dark here. But you you could follow me on Twitter and you could listen to Lolita podcast, and that's what you can do. Yeah, you can't. You can tweet at me and let me know if you think my Jughead analysis is accurate.
