The Laws of Male Status Seeking and Group Dynamics

From Pro Male Wiki

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, with these spaces being based around a singular hobby. But a lot of the time these groups will eventually change purpose when they get big enough 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:

1. Many men only join groups to personally benefit from them.

This can just be as simple as wanting to socialise, but most of the time men join groups to network and gain status.

2. Many groups will only allow men in if they are perceived to of be of any value to the group.

Many groups will seek to filter out low status men. Groups tends to be more welcoming to female newcomers than males.

3. Many men will seek to put the minimal effort in, to remain within the group they are part of.

Quite often many men will just join a group and do nothing to contribute to it.

4. Men generally only tend to carry on associating with groups if they perceive any benefit from doing so.

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.

5. Low status males in a group are at the highest risk of getting discarded if they are perceived to be of low utility to the group or the person in charge of the group.

6. Males who violate the group consensus are more likely to be cast out than females who do so.
Many groups will value the group consensus over ethics or the truth. (Women have more leeway to violate the group consensus)

7. Groups are more likely to accede to the demand of women than men.
Quite often it can only take just one sole female demanding stuff for the group to roll over and change their rules.

8. The lowest status male members of the group are often given the hardest and most unrewarding work.

9. Higher status social circles tend to attract more females, thus will attract higher status men.

Lower status groups attract less females, and tend to attract desperate low status men.

10. As a group gains status, it is more likely to turn on the low status male members, and create threat narratives against them.

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.

11. Low status men who join low status groups, tend to often bail on them if they are able to gain status.

12. Many low status groups are either cults or marketing scams, so the people running the group can con and exploit desperate low status men.

See pick-up-artists or Jordan Peterson as examples.

13. Niche hobbies that are seen as low status, can become higher status if they become trendy. See what has happened to geek culture in general, those spaces are now mainstream, and colonised by females.
Those spaces are prominent enough to attract high status men and females seeking a profit.

14. Many groups have lieutenant positions, often given to those who pander to the leader.

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.

15. Many volunteer community spaces have a high number of women, and are often run by them, simply because men in relationships work more than women in relationships, and so these spaces are used by middle aged women to socialise and network.

16. Women tend to value socialising with their own sex, more than men value socialising with their own sex. Thus many groups tend to be female centric.
