Asshole Status is the only way

September 28, 2017



Asshole behavior is the natural way for men to signal that they are above the bullshit rules the masses play by. If you are progressing in life, you will undoubtedly reach asshole status.


I think the advice to "be an asshole" is foreign to a lot of the readers here. People are fighting against their own exaggerated understanding of what it means to be an asshole. It's fairly obvious that most of the guys here are 'yes men.' With a lifetime of handing out "yes's" and "I agree's" in hopes of loyal friendships and unicorn pussy, you've been disappointed quite a bit. I'm here to tell you that it is all your fault. The actions you thought would bring you friends and potential mates was a losing strategy. The day you found TRP, you realized the guys here were saying the same thing: the responsibility to make shit happen is on you and you only and being nice is not virtuous or a winning strategy. You may think it's kind of you to not rock the boat and go with the flow but deep down, your expecting the other person to reciprocate. Your under the impression that your niceness should be valued and by extension of your nice deeds, you too, are valuable. This is false. Niceness comes from a place of strength and abundance, not from expectations and neediness. In fact, unmet expectations have a funny way of becoming apparent in your behavior when what you were hoping for doesn't happen. Your disappointment manifests itself subconsciously in your response, and others, especially chicks can pick up on this butt hurt vibe a mile away.


Last week I saw a few sarcastic comments on two solids posts, where the authors were calling for Terpers to embrace man's natural state of mind which I affectionately call asshole statusTM. The majority of men will never reach asshole status because the majority of men don't even know it exists. The small portion that do know of its existence (you being one of them) either are not actively pursuing it, or don't have the discipline to reach it so they rationalize away until they come up with some bullshit about men and women needing to live in harmony and 50/50 hurr durr.


I think the real reason your lashing out or rationalize why you are not pursuing the goal is because asshole status is very very very far from from your current incel status, and you don't know with your limited knowledge of living as an incel whether or not you can handle the the: "pussy slaying, obstacle nuking, chest thumping," man-dingo lifestyle you've only dreamed of. When your consciousness has been man handled and molly whopped into accepting whatever your female over lords expect of you, your subconscious/reptilian brain has no choice but to inch forward, to close the gap between what you are and what you desire. It is a trick your mind plays on you to defend your ego. TRP is here to break that false sense of comfort, because nothing gets achieved when man is comfortable.


I'm not going to convince you why you should become an asshole. Their are too many posts telling you step by step directions outlining the benefits of becoming one. Instead I am going to spell out why the fully developed man becomes an asshole with or without TRP, and it is all rooted in evolutionary psychology/biology.


Take a physically average man and woman and put them next to one another. Now ask yourself "who is more valuable?" Without any other evidence it should be clear that the woman is more worthy than the man. Without saying a word she can be the object of your sexual desire and she can become the mother of your child. Value is literally installed into her at birth, she is born a productive member of society. On the other hand, the man has absolutely no inherent value. He has millions of sperm while the woman has a small number of eggs. He can impregnate as many women as physically possible but a woman is burdened with pregnancy for 9 months and must be provided for several years as she cares for for the child so it will stay alive. Men were biologically born without much value but a lot of potential so they ventured into the unknown to bring back resources. Not very long ago this meant his life was in danger from outside forces (ie. animals, other men) so he evolved to to be physically and psychologically stronger than a woman. As his value grows he encounters more men trying to stop his progress and the go to method used to be violence, and it is still a very real option today. One wrong statement could get you punched in the mouth, or result in your life being destroyed. A man's words carry more weight because the consequences are much harsher.


Humans have evolved to value things that are rare, this value judgement happens subconsciously and both men and women instinctively recognize value when they see it. To a woman, other capable (pretty) women are competition, to a man at the top of his game he encounters many capable women but not as many capable men. The 80/20 rule illustrates this point in the SMP but it is ingrained in the human psyche: A high value female is born and maintained while the game comes to her. A high value man is forged while he attacks the game and collects what belongs to him. A high value man has fought the good fight for years. He has persevered through adversity so he acts a certain way as a barrier to those who don't possess enough value to join his life. Let me put it another way: an engineer with 20 years of hardcore experience can ask for a 6 or 7 figure salary because he has earned that right. An engineer fresh out of university has the potential and the base knowledge to excel but for the moment he is not worthy of the same paycheck as the engineer with 20 years of experience. The same goes for men, as his experience rises he is allowed to ask for more from people, whether it be salary, better behavior, or pussy on demand. It is more difficult being a man so one that is successful has more room to act however he sees fit. Usually asshole status is earned but it can be faked. That is the beauty of TRP, we teach you the behaviors that change peoples perception to benefit you, while outlining what you need to do to actually become high value. Assholes have either earned the right to be assholes or are doing a good job faking it. It doesn't matter which method you choose: fake it till you make it or make it then display it. The outcome is the same.


Look at the following images. These poses are not accidental and should tell you everything you need to know as to who is superior, and it is ingrained into our instinctual understanding as to who is the most valuable. As Patrice O'neal said: When the king marries a woman she becomes queen, when the queen marries a man he does not become king.

You have to always put yourself first, take advantage of everything and everyone, and most importantly do whatever the fuck you want whenever the fuck you want. Do this with no regard for other people's feelings or opinions. Fuck them all.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Some idiot would take this to the extreme

[–]FiveStarTendieDinner4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

You say extreme, I call it the pinnacle. My life has never been better.

[–]Peter_B_Long5 points6 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

Not that I disagree, but this person sounds like he would have zero friends.

[–]FiveStarTendieDinner5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I have plenty of friends. They're all named Benjamin Franklin however.

[–]ShadowverseRick0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

That's pretty savage not gonna lie

I like the way you think. I have real friends too so this guy is full of shit. I mean granted we take the egoism thing in diffetent directions. You see it as a contest and a challenge to achieve...i see it as stranded on a fucking island so noone has the right to judge me

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Idk what niggas thinkin but I know how they think . Dog eat dog world we live in

[–]Herdsengineers16 points17 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I've described this subject as unleashing your inner asshole. Only its not really being an asshole, its just having good boundaries and putting your own basic care and needs first as a priority instead of constantly catering to the needs of others at your own expense. It feels like being an asshole because men are socially programmed to feel that way when we take care of ourselves and don't give in to the beta-feminist expectations of society at large.

Doesn't mean don't care about anyone else. Doesn't mean be a dark triad sociopath. It just means be the best you possible, and work to maintain that status first.

[–][deleted] 16 points17 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

Yes and be sure to be able to distinguish between the uncaring asshole and the caring asshole.

[–]WhySoRuff[S] 11 points12 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Beautiful link to reinforce a piece that is meant only for the enlightened. My one issue with "uncaring asshole<caring asshole." Is the fact that one needs to become the uncaring asshole before they evolve into the caring asshole. It is easy to say I didn't fight that man named X because I'm older and mature and I don't fight. While the world looks at you as an impotent version of a man. You couldn't last one round with your opponent while you claim moral superiority not to fight. When you have the capability to destroy buy you choose not to, THAT IS REAL POWER/VIRTUE.

[–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Heartiste was actually describing "uncaring asshole > caring asshole."

There's a funny progression males can go through,

  • Being good in order to get sex and status
  • Realizing that doesn't work, so no longer caring about being good.
  • Being strong and dominant in order to get sex and status
  • Getting sex and status and becoming happy
  • That happiness overflowing naturally into being good.

Caring = scarcity mentality. Uncaring = outcome independence

[–]WhySoRuff[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

That is interesting. Except for the fact that Heartiste's audience are older men who have had zero progress in the sexual market place. When someone states a hyperbole like "you should be an uncaring asshole" it is not what he actually means. The only way to turn self sacrificing behavior to the benefit of women is to posit that men need to become "uncaring assholes." The only way to battle the hyperbole of "bow down to women" is by stating another hyperbole: "men should become hyper masculine and put their interests first." Of course the actual truth lies in between both extremes, and the further we become educated in the sexual dynamics we understand that one side (men) winning all the time is no way to live. Unless of course you want to pump and dump into your golden years which by my estimation is a very low percentage of men.

Ah, so aloof asshole is key. thanks for sharing the link!

The difference between the inherent value of a teenage girl and a teenage boy is so vast. I wonder if this could possibly be part of the reason behind the motivation for how some feminists want to bring back the glorification/sexualization of the teenage male body that was prevalent in the upper classes of ancient cultures. And/or for the blurring of defined sexual preferences into dozens of spectrum statuses, all equally likely. Perhaps the goal is to transform as many boys as possible into attention-seeking objects of beauty who focus more on personal grooming than personal development. Just an idea.

I thought I had heard and seen it all... please elaborate on what you know....

[–]bossplayaintraining4 points5 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

How do I act this way when literally EVERYBODY pushes me down as soon as I try?

[–]WhySoRuff[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

People see that you are merely "acting" and they don't believe it is in your character. They test you and you fail. Nobody is pushing you down. They test your resolve and you buckle under pressure. The feeling of others pushing you down seems like the ego protecting its self. You need to make improvements incrementally until you reach asshole status with no push back from others.

[–]willowhawk5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Humans are social creatures. The hierarchy of status is established in circles very quickly and people don't like it being changed as that could result in them being a tier lower now if you went above.

Everytime you start exhibiting asshole behaviour you are showing signs that you should be of higher status within the group.

People already having established you as low will instinctively react by pushing you back down to where they belive you belong. Everytime you revert back to your old behaviour you are confirming their right to push you down.

You have to keep the asshole behaviour up until your frame of higher status breaks there frame and they recognise your new status.

It's harder coming from low to high slowly through behaviourly changes. Easiest way is to have always acted that way or take part in a situation where the whole group can recognise your new behaviour together.a Few higher status people who arnt threatened because you won't rise above them will allow you to rise above the mids who are afraid, if they're your friends

[–]SovereignSoul761 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Does this even need to be explained? ...You don't fucking let them. Tell them to eat shit. They keep pushing, take your ball and leave.

[–]1ozaku74 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Assholery is in the eye of the beholder. Only a bluepill will tell you you're an asshole for trying to get what you want by acting offensive. Because they believe that women like to be loved, cherished like a delicate flower, while they just want to be fucked hard by a big dick, which makes one an asshole.

The definition of asshole is fucked, and rather you're a guy that takes an offensive stance to get what he wants, but still remains respectful with ethics and morals to not be a true asshole.

Where is Obama? Or did he not meet the qualifications?

[–]WhySoRuff[S] 2 points3 points  (6 children) | Copy Link

I'm glad you noticed that because I was surprised myself to not find a similar picture of Barack and Michelle. Than I realized what they represent and who their base is and of course they must pander to them. They represent progress where men and women are equal and I found more pictures of Obama staring at Michelle the same way the other women stared at their men. Role reversal cuz of muh progress.

[–]OpiumDesVolkes844 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Haha yes good observation. There are times when Michelle came off as more dominant in the pictures of them together.

[–]Self-honest4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

I don't disagree with your point, but I googled "Obama sworn in" and there are hundreds of pictures just like the others you posted links to.

[–]WhySoRuff[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I googled "Obama Inauguration" and drew a blank... but the other pix I did find were Obama gazing at his better half, a type of pix I didn't find any of the others partaking in. In other words: This lack of including Obama wasn't intentional.

[–]blueparka430 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

It's not our fault, but it's our responsibility to fix it

[–]situ1390 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

idk why people think its either way too nice or supreme asshole.

Dont be nice, and dont be an asshole.

Everyone relies on other people, theres no way around it.

At the same time, dont misunderstand being an asshole as being someone who goes after what they want, regardless of other people.

Thats not being an asshole, thats being a man.

[–]Lambdal70 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

Asshole is beneath the alpha male, so not sure what you're trying the say with this post. It sounds like mental masturbation.

A real alpha male, a leader with outstanding experience and skill in his field, does not need asshole behaviours to be respected and is able to care for people.

An insecure try hard alpha male needs asshole behaviour, because he doesn't have much else to rely on and is not able to care for people because he is too busy trying to prove how alpha he is. People can see through that very quickly.

CEOs and other leaders often also have a "no-asshole", so connecting with influental individuals also falls out of the equations.

The asshole you're describing will be fired from any company they work for, is not able to form long-lasting relationships with people, not able to negotiate larger deals, not able to form a functioning family, cannot make win-win seals but only zero sum deals.

So all in all, the asshole is a bitter individual who thinks he is the greatest even though everyone else thinks he's a fucking idiot.

If you are not sure as to what I am saying in this post.... how can you write such a long ass retort?

[–]MisterDorimant 1 points1 points [recovered] | Copy Link

Shrub the First and His mom. Such a good boy. she was so proud.

I use to be a simp raised by a single mother swirling crackhead black devil bitch. Ever since knowing the truth and red pilled, I dont give a fuck about a bitches feelings or well being. Let a bitch do one thing and touch me and I'll fucking knock her block off. Id Prefer watching them die while squealing like the greedy shit eating pigs they are but society has to fail first. Im preparing now. Besides supplies, ill have chains, stakes and muzzles for these bitches. Anyway to the point, dont expect being an asshole to get you laid. They will hate you more. Theyll give pussy to the simps betas and cucks to try to make you weak so they can manipulate you. Better gyow. See the signs and prepare how you see fit. I personally follow the Bible and lost books. This js prophecy and any with eyes can read it: ISAIAH 3:16-4:1

That's talking about so called negroes. Negroes latinos and native Americans are the real Israelites.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
