My earlier post, “It’s all Greek to me,” roused some points from readers who had their own jargon to add. So I’m building this glossary as a separate page on my site. I hope you’ll find it helpful – and I hope you’ll poke me with any jargon or acronyms you think should be included.
Special mention for inspiration goes to Ambrose Bierce, who published his own “Devil’s Dictionary” near a century ago.
On edit, March 2015: I’m linking a new resource, “A Lexicon of Social Justice” on Breitbart.com. I wish I could mirror it here, but there might be copyright issues….
Alpha – The leader of the pack. A man who is confident, brash, and sure of himself in a way that is supposedly irresistible to the Female Of The Species.
AMOG – Alpha Male Of Group. The identity every Pick-Up Artist strives to maintain. Also used as “AMOG the competition,” which is, I believe, to say “put the other guys down so you walk away with the prize.” (Since I am not a Pick-Up Artist, I admit I may not have this one pegged.)
Average Frustrated Chump (AFC) – The “Good Man” of “The Good Men Project,” out for the evening at the swingin’ hot spots. The guy who smiles and buys the women drinks, only to watch them leave with a PUA.
Beta – The poor schlub who pays to raise the Alpha’s spawn. Also used by PUAs to denote a man who shows common courtesy to the women he encounters …
Blue Pill – From The Matrix and its sequels. The path of conformity with Society’s expectations; the state of being unaware of the problems engendered by the Femarchy for non-compliant males. Compare with “Red Pill,” below.
Bridezilla – A woman, usually a carousel-rider who’s caught baby-rabies, to whom the Grand Perfect Wedding is far more important than the marriage that is to follow. Check CostOfWedding.com for more of the gory details.
Carousel – Better known as the “cock carousel.” The carnival-ride of sexual experimentation, as experienced by the young woman in the hypergamous phase of their lives; the meet-market as enjoyed and exploited by women who are “Looking for Mr. Goodbar.”
DHV – Display of Higher Value, the accomplishment of making some bar-skank believe that you have a high SMV (see below). The rules, conditions, complications and concatenations involved in the DHV Theory of Game are great enough to make cricket seem quite comprehensible to an American baseball fan (by comparison), and vice-versa.
Domestic violence – Anything that a man might do that irks his Much-More-Significant Other. Even “keeping quiet to keep the peace” is defined as “domestic violence,” by some feminist systems of jurisprudence.
Duluth Model – a system of handling domestic violence, based on an ideology that states unequivocally that partner violence is exclusively male on female, and that considers patriarchal oppression of all women by all men as the only source of that violence.
Family Court – The Spanish Inquisition, for men; the Big Casino, for wives.
Fembot– An abbreviation for feminist robots; it captures the way feminists are herd-thinkers, not critical observers with the capacity for working an issue through by themselves. Fembots are ideologues, people whose knees “jerk” when subjected to the appropriate stimulus, which is commonly a challenge to their belief system. The robotic qualities of feminism are due to many things, not the least of which is that gender-feminism is a self-referential cult, not a philosophy of truth. The responses of this movement are pre-programmed. Finally, latter-day feminism is a descendent of totalitarian, or Utopian thought systems; like Stalinism, gender-feminism cannot tolerate independent thinking. (Thanks to TheRedPillWorks for this definition.)
Fembotulism – A disease that will probably be as fatal to society as botulism is to an individual.
Feminism – “A doctrine built on the pre-supposition of victimhood of women by men as a foundation of female identity. In its goals is always the utilization of the state to forcibly redress this claimed victimization. In other words, the proxy use of violence and wealth appropriation. In whatever flavor, and variation, these two basic features are common to every doctrine using the label feminism. Feminism is therefore, a doctrine of class hatred, and violence.” (John The Other, “Why not date a feminist?” A Voice For Men, 4 June 2012.)
Feminist – “A person who believes in the oppression lie and uses it to justify their anti-male behavior.” (MrStodern, replying to Leaving The Sisterhood: A recovering feminist speaks, A Voice For Men, 13 August 2012.
Fenced Relationship – A sexual relationship based on the concept of sexual ownership; one in which the partners regard each other as “sexual property.” Marriage is the traditional, and legal, fenced relationship. (Sex 3.0)
Game – The fluid, hard-to-define, ever-changing, but ever-marketable skills that the Pick-Up Industry insists you need to cut a bar-hopping skank out of the pack and take her back to your place, or her place, for a night of passion on the Midnight Trampoline.
Hypergamy – The natural impulse of women who want more, and more and more, and more and more and more and more, than they’re actually worth in the Sexual Marketplace.
JK – Just Kidding. This is true for damn-near every definition in this glossary.
LGBT – (1) Vegetarian version of the venerable BLT sandwich, substituting Garbanzo Beans for the bacon. (2) Let’s Get Bi Tonight. (See “JK” above.)
Madonna/Whore Syndrome – the delusion that women are either “Utterly Pure Madonnas” or “Utterly Soiled Whores” – or, even worse, that “my woman is an Utterly Pure Madonna” even though she swam out to meet troop-ships before you met her.
Mangina – an unfortunate (in all ways) combination of “man” and “vagina”. Generally used to describe a male person who has left his balls in some woman’s purse.
Mating Dance – My own preferred term for the meet-market, the singles scene, the intricate steps and tests and behavioral traps that male and female must pass on the way to finding a suitable other-sex parent for their hypothetical – or should that be “hypocritical” – family.
Matrimony – That stage of male slavery, utility and sacrifice that follows a Bridezilla wedding. The traditional fenced relationship sanctioned by Church and State.
MGTOW – Men Going Their Own Way; the growing contingent of the male population who are saying “Fuck It All” to the Mating Dance.
MWIG – Man Without Inner Game, proposed by Spacetraveller of The Sanctuary as a simplification of PLWCGLWTALW (below).
NAWALT – Not All Women Are Like That. Frequently heard on Manosphere websites, usually used by intruding women or trolls who want to derail an assertion. If only one out of a million women “aren’t like that,” it’s still technically true (but Diogenes wouldn’t waste the lamp oil to go looking for her!)
Omega – The poor hapless schlubs at the bottom of the sexual totem-pole, who probably couldn’t even get laid at a whorehouse with a fistful of hundred-dollar bills. (This has happened to me personally; maybe I should cover it in the future.)
Paternity Concern (PAC) – The man’s concern to be sure that the children of his wife, who he is raising in his house and to be his heirs, really are his children. This concern resulted from “the invention of property,” and its own result was “Sex 2.0” – the societal system regarding a mate as sexual property, with the attendant scourges of jealousy, possessiveness, and enforced exclusivity. (Sex 3.0)
Pacman – A man who is obsessed with Paternity Concern, who regards women as sexual property, and who suffers with the “Madonna/Whore” syndrome. (Sex 3.0)
PLWCGLWTALW – Pathetic Losers Who Can’t Get Laid Without Tricking and Lying to Women. (Thanks to Mack for this one – though he still hasn’t told me whether you spell this acronym out, or sneeze it.)
POF – Plenty Of Fish.com, an online match service that has a particularly overripe reputation with the cognoscenti of the Men’s Movement. Some call it “Smells Like A Fish.com” or “Plenty Of Fat.com”.
Predominant Aggressor Doctrine – This is an arrest procedure reduced to the simplistic view that men are bigger and stronger, and therefore guilty. This cultivates a law enforcement climate of policing by script, removing the judgement and discretion of police when dealing with DV situations more complex than the simplistic Only Men are Perpetrators Doctrine.
PUA – Pick-Up Artist, typically a guy who follows some guru’s trademarked system (like the Mystery Method) to attract the attention of women and “sell” them on going to bed with him. The most successful of these artists become gurus in the Pick-Up Industry, where they often pick up way more paying students than they ever picked up chicks.
Rabies (Baby ~) – An affliction that often strikes carousel-riding women when they first experience a slump in their SMV. The main symptom is that the ticking biological clock starts echoing in a mind formerly vacant of any such serious thoughts.
Rationalization Hamster – A mythical creature which is said to live in a woman’s brain, and which feverishly spins the hamster wheel powering her ability to rationalize and justify her thoughts and actions regardless of how wrong-headed they may seem to an outside observer. No amount of logic or reason can stop the hamster from spinning.
Red Pill – The recognition and awareness of the way that feminism, feminists and their white-knight enablers are screwing up Society. Often hard to swallow, because it usually follows an event such as divorce that leaves you feeling screwed, blued and tattooed. A reference from The Matrix. Cf. Blue Pill, above.
Relationship Duress (RD) – A collective term for the myriad of ways in which society creates an uncomfortable environment for those who do not seem to be following the standard script of: (1) Find partner; (2) Date in a ‘committed’ monogamous relationship; (3) Get married; (4) Have kids; (5) Stay married. (Sex 3.0)
Sex 1.0 – Sexual relationships on the terms of human and animal nature, prior to the concept of “property.” (Sex 3.0)
Sex 2.0 – Sexual relationships based on terms of sexual ownership; on terms of exclusivity, jealousy, possessiveness, and relationship duress. (Sex 3.0)
Sex 3.0 – Sexual relationships based on continuing mutual reward, and on the four pillars of communication, honesty, trust, and respect. (Sex 3.0)
S. L. U. T. – Sexually Liberated Urban Tart. Spends days screaming about “entitlement” and how “she has a right to dress as she damn well wants” – and nights swinging from alpha cock to alpha cock.
SMV – Sexual Market Value. A shorthand statement for “what you bring to the table,” whether for an one-night stand or for a longer sexual/emotional relationship. In the extreme, a measure of worth that we might assign to a woman who seemed to promise to fulfill our sexual needs enough to be worth considering for “marriage” (cf: Sexual Slavery.)
Snowflake – A woman who tries to persuade a man that she’s somehow unique, different, or special by playing up her good girl resume and downplaying her bad girl resume. When used as a verb, snowflaking refers to the argument she puts forth to justify her claim.
Unfenced Relationship – A sexual relationship not based on the concept of sexual ownership; one that is held together by continuing mutual reward, rather than the chains of custom. (Sex 3.0)
White Knight – (1) a man who “comes to the rescue” of a woman, or of women, reflexively, emotionally-driven, without thought or even looking at the situation; (2) a man in authority who enables Team Womyn in his legislative actions, judgments, or rulings, reflexively, emotionally-driven, without thought or even looking at what’s right.
Zeta Male – A man who has no intention of being entrapped by marriage, shacking-up, or baby-daddy fatherhood. Taken from “Zeta Perseii,” a bright star in the “foot” of the constellation Perseus, who is classically portrayed as crushing the body of Medusa under his heel.
