This page is a list of the laws of male status seeking and group dynamics.
Not all social groups are about status seeking. Many groups are just spaces for people to have nothing more than casual social interaction, often with these spaces being based around a singular hobby. But a lot of the time these groups will eventually change purpose and become about attaining status for many of those who join. It's good to note that these laws are generalizations, and they don't always apply to all groups. But a large number of these laws will always apply to any male group. Here are the laws:
This can just be as simple as wanting to socialise, but most of the time men join groups to network and gain status.
Many groups will seek to filter out low status men. Groups tends to be more welcoming to female newcomers than males.
Quite often many men will just join a group and do nothing to contribute to it.
Any past benefit from the group they are a part of will not guarantee future loyalty. Not all men are users, but a lot of men are, and many groups are maintained off the backs of a minority of pro social, unselfish people.
Lower status groups attract less females, and tend to attract desperate low status men.
These often come in the form of harassment policies and white knights enforcing social norms that the women who join demand. This is the process of female colonisation of male spaces. Male only spaces tend to only be low status for the most part.
By pandering, they become high value to the leader. A good example of this is big YouTube channel Discord servers. The lieutenant moderator/admin positions are often given to men who donate via Patreon. The leaders of big groups can be seen as high value people by both men and women. Maybe lower status men are willing to pander to higher status men, as long as they perceive they are gaining status from it. Of course this perception can be false, having a lieutenant position in a group rarely of any value.
