Betas, Online Dating and Anonymous

By J. DeVoy

At the limply beating heart of all things beta is a lack of options.  Anonymous, ever the ingenious amorphous blob of misanthropy that it is, seized upon this and organized an “involuntary flashmob” in midtown Manhattan by using spoofed female dating profiles to lure men into appearing at the same place at the same time. Vice has the writeup.

The entire affair was recorded on camera, and plenty of photos abound.

It’s screwed up to do this to people, but it’s Anonymous, so: 1) we expect this conduct from them, and 2) the only thing injured was pride; this isn’t something that rises to the level of IIED. (Also, good luck if litigious victims go after Vice for displaying photos of them in a public place.)  In a way, Anonymous is providing them a service by giving the victims cause for deep, serious introspection – kind of like Roosh’s Compliment and Cuddle.

  3. I think it takes more than 6 guys to make a mob. They barely had enough people for a “No Girls Allowed” clubhouse. This is like that lame ass video where the people get so excited that they are going to flash mob an Apple store and 4 people show up and dance until their asses get kicked out of the mall.

    When I was a kid flash mobs were so much cooler.

    Check back with vice for the update. They interviewed the guy with the fedora, not so beta after all.
