Why Do Angry White Men Love Calling People "Cucks?"

Submitted by: stifler 5 months ago in News & Politics


I did a little research on the word "cuck" and what I found was that calling someone a "cuck" has become shorthand for any perceived weakness, or rather, perceived reluctance to exploit strength.

The word "cuck" is a concept born out of insecurity: A fear that one is inadequate, sexually or otherwise, and that inadequacy will lead to the loss of the things that are important to him. And it’s becoming increasingly obvious: these men have lost.

"Those who call others a cuck do so in the desperate hope that shreds of their own masculine," writes Dana Schwartz in this GQ article on the popularity of the word, "and racial prominence can be protected."

Never have used such a word, nor even heard of it before.

I've heard of Cuckold, but not just Cuck

Meh.  its a term I'd never bother to use and I'm fairly certain I'd look down on anyone using it.

I mean, you're trying to bug someone that he wife is stepping out and using his resources to satisfy her needs and/or raise kids that aren't his.  If I really felt the need to point this out, I'm sure I've got the linguistic skills to spell it out for him without resorting to a cute term that he may or may not understand.

Can't say it's a term I've ever used or felt a desire to use. It's a little weird, to be honest.

Cuckold: What i actually represents is "the Cuckoo",  its a bird that lays its eggs in another birds nest. The cuckoo is fed by the unsuspecting mother.  The cuckoo bird grows larger than the other chicks then while the mother bird is away the cuckoo chick, kicks out the smaller weaker chicks, to be fed by the surrogate mother until it is able to fly. Thus continuing its like cycle.

It also represent a weaker man who has no say in his house, its a weak man who has to stand by as his woman or wife flirts or has sex with other more virile, stronger men, and can't do anything about it. Cuck is used as a short version of the word. If you follow porn most cuckolds are white men. 

However its more about female empowerment and her ability to deprive the cucked man of sex, while using his money. Thus using her sass to attract Virile men for security, and sex. In more extreme cases she will have children with these larger men only to have the man raise the child who will be stronger and wiser ensuring her linage.

aladinsballs if my wife was able to pick up a toy for herself why not let her? Sure as hell beats me having to do her. Plenty of 20-something girl's for me.

aladinsballs I believed it to be from the Hindi word, meaning adulter, which makes more sense since it is closer to the current usage in English.

Cuck is a word used primarily by red pill/alpha male dudebros, generally incorrectly.  It's an interesting insult as much like the words 'nigger' or 'kike' it reflects more negatively on the person using it than the intended recipient.

OMG you fuckin idiot. Cuck is short for cuckold which is a man that allows or prefers that his wife sleep with other men. It's directed mainly at white men who allow themselves to be denigrated or insulted just for being a white male or worse do it themselves in order to score points with women or racial minorities. I agree that it's a stupid word but it has nothing to do with masculine prominence. But yeah "angry white men" and stuff.

Good find. I was called cuck by an IAB regular, and I thought, "Well, that's cute -- the use of the word, but it's such a militant reddit word." It's a cheap, uncreative label that revels the weakness of the person using it more than anything. 

I always thought it was what you call a guy who allows his wife to sleep with other guys, and in turn, she demeans him while she's banging other dudes. According to Ms. Fancy, it's also a term for guys who get cheated on, whether they know they're being cheated on or not. 

Whatever, like most hot button words, it's taken a new definition. I personally think it's gives the person who says it the same glee that racists get when they drop N-bombs. It's not as worse, but you get the point.

fancylad If you're referring to me, I actually asked if you had gone full cuck.  A cuck in the contemporary, political sense is someone who allows, whether intentionally or not, their own country or national identity to be fucked around with or denigrated by the global community.  And seven years gone, I'm hardly a regular anymore.
