Some Thoughts on the Ongoing Epidemic of ‘Cuckface’ aka ‘Soyface’

This is one of those delayed posts which I started writing a few weeks ago but never managed to finish at that time. So I guess you will have to wait for more of my thoughts on Jordan Peterson and Incels for a day or two. Anyway.. I first thought writing a post about this phenomena about a year ago, when I noticed that a lot of young and mostly white men appeared to be posing for the camera with almost identical and highly unnatural expressions. Have a look at the attached graphic (below) based on a collage found on twitter to understand what I am talking about.

Initially, I found such photos and selfies to be darkly humorous. I mean.. what kind of idiot would deliberately pose with such a ridiculous facial expression? To be clear, I am not suggesting that posing with a dour and humorless expression is a mark of self-respect or even desirable. But the cartoonish facial expression uniformly displayed by men in a large percentage of photos posed on social media is clearly at (or beyond) the other end. In many ways, this expression is way more cringe-worthy than the fake smile commonly seen in photos from anglo-american societies.

The fake smile is, at least, a shitty simulacra of a real emotional response. Could anyone tell me what this open mouth, bulging eyes, looking straight at camera “expression” is supposed to a simulacra of? Is it surprise? Being held at gunpoint? T human version of chimpanzee fear-face? Stretching their mouth before giving head to an extra-large penis? What exactly are these “men” signalling with that expression? Are they are happy, sad, angry, surprised, ready to suck off another guy? Also why are multiple “men” in these photos adopting the same facial expression?

Over the last few months, I have increasingly seen this peculiar facial expression referred to as “cuckface” or “soyface”. And you what.. those who given these nicknames to this expression have a point, since it is most commonly seen in photos of beta-orbiters of women, male “feminists” and basically men who will go along with whatever women say- regardless of how irrational, stupid or dangerous it might be. To put it another way, this facial expression does exhibit a very high correlation with the subject being a spineless man who will say and do anything to please some woman who does not care for this abject act of submission.

Some say this forced facial expression indicates low testosterone levels. I think that it exhibits a far better correlation with having zero self-respect and ability for introspection. Think about it.. how often do you see this ridiculous facial expression in posed photos of women? Why not? Could it be because most women have higher levels of self-respect and capability for introspective thought than these “men”? And this brings us to the question of what is going on inside the minds of those who adopt pose this facial expression in photos.

Short answer- not that much, because they would not be posing like that if there was much going on there. The somewhat longer answer is these are truly mediocre and spineless men, who might have gotten a bit lucky by being born white in USA. They clearly lack a normal sense of self or personality and fill that void by enthusiastically adopting whatever opinions and mannerisms are allegedly in fashion. To summarize- these men are truly pathetic and beta-en specimens of humanity whose photos and selfies do, however, have some entertainment value and offer a cautionary note about the horrors of being a person without self-respect or capability for introspective thinking.

What do you think? Comments?

    Soyface is epidemic because western society no longer holds any respect for men or masculinity. Not to condone soyface in any way, but how else can a typical man deal with the shame of being relegated to the status of being a subhuman pet-boy (AKA incel or beta orbiter)? Most men deal with it just like this, by sucking it up and presenting a faux facial expression of pseudo happiness. The alternative, acting masculine, is a sure path to ridicule and rejection. Regrettably, such is western society today.

    It’s an expression as “performance artistry” to show they are “playful” and “spontaneous” …
    which would have worked years ago in the age of the PUA,
    but now that the blackpill is going mainstream, just marks those guys out as “ugly jesters”, i.e. guys who didn’t get the memo, or think that “as long as I’m funny, women will like me”.

    Nope, the guy is funny because he’s hot … and if she’s not laughing with you, she’s laughing AT you.

    Just found this gem:
    – Guy complains that women are only attracted to a small group of men
    – His female friends who need his utility tell him he’s overthinking and wrong
    – Other women say “they’re looking for love” (but only accept dicking from handsome guys, lel
    – Finally a man says (paraphrased): In order to become a better man, I’ve agreed to let my wife have sex with other men (no word on whether she allows him to have sex with other women)

    In all it’s cucked glory (St. BlackOps2cel be praised):

    As one feminist stated, Jordan B Peterson is a dumb man’s “smart person”.IDGAF about these kinds of people, but the manosphere (even black CONservatives on YouTube) praise JBP, talking about he’s a “real man” because he talks over people – or they say shit along the lines of “you’re not a real man if you haven’t talked over a woman”… the same incels who have issues getting laid and express sexual jealousy of men who CAN score.

      the same incels who have issues getting laid and express sexual jealousy of men who CAN score.
      Well … if women can complain that not getting laid is a disability,
      shouldn’t men complain about that too?

      After all, the people (and many of them are “men who want to get laid”) who say they “support equality” but ONLY allow women’s voices to be heard … are the ones expressing sexual jealousy too by putting men under the bus, right?

      Why would you support such people?

      P.S. Haven’t heard anything from you about the refutation to Thugtician:

      Smitty the Great One, another MGHOW, employed a slightly more combative analogy in his description to me: “MGTOW are the Viet Cong of the gender war.
      The men’s rights activists don’t like us because, while we agree with them on some things, we won’t be their cannon fodder in a war we know they can’t win.
      Pickup artists hate us because they can’t make money off us.
      Feminists hate us because we won’t fight them.
      And women hate us because we won’t give them what they want.”

    Jordan Peterson is a great example of how “intellectualism” cannot compensate for being a sissy. It just adds bullshit to being a sissy.

    Could you use direct links to photos, or put them on imgur and then link to them, rather than as google searches?

    • June 16, 2018 at 7:50 am

      A lot of people are like that, Not Born This Morning. Even on Black YouTube (which I’m sure you have heard of some of the wankers there).

      This sounds like more *men arent manly anymore* conservative bullshit.

    Other than the silly/stupid faces they are making what stands out is that every young man has a beard. Why are they all the same? This makes me really dislike millennial men. They have no individuality. If they grow a beard to attract women doesn’t it put them on an even playing field since they all do it? Finally I have to ask is this trend ever going to end?
