I wrote this for TNMM. Link here.
The proliferation within the manosphere of socio-sexual status markers has been around for awhile. There may be slight differences in definitions between what comprises the Alpha male, Beta, etc. Yet the general consensus is the same. You want to be the “Alpha” male and not the “Beta” male or lower. Personally I rarely use these terms as it has become a way for morons to status signal behind their keyboards.
While the Alpha and Beta categories have seen a lot of commentary and dissemination. There is very little exegesis on the Sigma male. Our gracious host Relampago has done a bang up job in further breaking down what and who this archetype is. His article here does a splendid job in defining the Sigma male. I would like to further add commentary on this topic.
Drifters And Villains
If you don’t know anything about the Sigma. Please read the linked article first to get some knowledge on the topic. I have been saying for awhile now that the modern male needs to out group himself from the society in which he hails from(if he lives in the west). He needs to become the antithesis of all the pozzed Fag-O-Trons holding hands and singing Kumbaya. This rebellious shunning of the masses and their drugged out delirium of group think fits perfectly in line with becoming the Sigma male.
For introverted types, this way of living comes natural to them. Never the less anyone can choose to say “fuck these faggots” and become the maniacal Outlaw set against the west and her hordes of androgynous mutants.
The Sigma gives zero fucks about fitting in. Zero fucks about playing ball with a cadre of inferiors. Often he lurks in the shadows and picks off his prey without having to make a huge show of it. For this reason alone the Sigma male will cause the Alpha types to feel very threatened. One has to be careful just how brash and brazen you want to swoop down into enemy territory and pick off the sheep. You don’t want to rustle up every Alpha and his lackeys to come against you at once. It’s much better as the Sigma to isolate your targets than it is to go in like Rambo.
That being said it can be seriously fun to obliterate social scenes and make enemies. It is a rockin good time to cause fear and terror in the hearts of weaklings. Sometimes you just gotta fuck shit up. For the Sigma this comes much easier. Since he plants no roots in social scenes and has voluntarily out grouped himself. It is much easier for him to move between varying social circles and drop some fuckin bombs.

The Sigma male is the natural Villain to the zeitgeist. The dangerous man in the shadows who at any time can strike like lightning on some fuck boy Alpha types. One of the best and most lethal traits of the Sigma is his unpredictability. Because he does not care to be very social, most people are alarmed whenever he inserts himself in their group. The brazen Sigma can absolutely destroy social groups and situations where there is a conformist mind set.
To become the Sigma you must not fear this power but embrace it. When people come against you it should cause great joy and eager anticipation to swell inside. There is most definitely a lot of entertainment to be had annihilating people’s little circle jerks. The Sigma HATES to be considered part of the group. He stalks outside judging and discerning how he will strike. Sometimes he has a specific reason for blowing up the party. Sometimes he just wants to entertain himself at the expense of others.
The Alpha’s will always look with concern, anger, threat and even fear at the Sigma. The Alpha is established within his group. He has been resting on his laurels. Leaning on his social status with no threats from outsiders. Then along comes the Sigma and flips his shit upside down. You have to expect this and even welcome it. We hate to be social in the way that most people behave.
Lets face it.
Most people are extremely weak and passive. They cave at the plastic displays of machismo from the cardboard Alpha. In strolls the Sigma tossing a mother fucking molotov on the whole god damn thing.
Fuck yo couch!
For Sigma types you need to embrace and harness your aggression. You will need it in strong measure if you rile up entire social groups against you. Do not fear your power but embrace the dark ability to cause chaos. The only caveat being that you must cultivate attacking with calculated aggression.
While the Alpha is swimming in his small pond. The Sigma rolls up and drains the whole god damn thing. While the lone big fish squirms and putters out along with his little fish groupies. The Villain Sigma rides off in the sunset for the next score and the next party to plunder. Get fucked.
If you are a natural rebel who hates to be “one of the guys”. You may find your ideal archetype in the Sigma male. He is truly a man apart and a unique individual. He knows the taste of boundless freedom and is loathe to relinquish it for anyone or anything. However you should know that with this freedom also welcomes the accompanying danger. Be prepared to deal with aggressive alpha behaviors from those who feel alarmingly threatened by your very presence. Be ready to strike in a moments notice at the whiff of weakness and then vanish back into the shadows. We don’t need any pats on the back, faceborg likes or gay boy shout outs.
To all the sycophants, social butterflies and piss weak status whores. We smile a devious and dark grin watching your faggot pony show go up in flames. Now kiss my ass and suck my dick.
