As a man, I probably shouldn’t be telling you our secret codes for fear of being kicked out — kicked out of the Man Club.
Scenario: In a social setting, you make a statement that is absolutely dividing and possibly offensive.
Mancode #81: While I know that it is expected to offend and divide people on a regular basis, stop talking immediately. There are 3 ways to respond:
1. Locate the alpha male and copy his actions. Do that quickly. Mimic his body language, his laughing and his trailblazing — even if the high school sports story doesn’t relate to you.
2. Make hard eye contact with the people in the group and tell them that you were just testing their social conscience and that they all failed. They will in turn be amazed at how dumb they all are, giving you the chance to leave them to their shame.
3. Fake a seizure and then calmly stand after a minute saying that your brain gets a little weird right before you go out. They will probably give you money and you also may be asked out on a date.
