26 Ridiculous Ways Men Have Tried To Assert Their Dominance

Apparently, these guys didn't get the memo. For anyone who missed it, here it is again: WE ARE NOT ANIMALS AND YOU DON'T NEED TO ASSERT YOUR DOMINANCE. That said, these men tried to assert their godly dominance in absolutely ridiculous ways. You would not want to find yourself anywhere near these toxic displays of fragile, validation-seeking egos. But if you do, don't forget to write about it on Reddit so us normal human beings can laugh and shake our heads at the absurdity of some men.

    Text Literally last weekend some really drunk dude who I had never once met or interacted with tried to fight me (to impress the girls he was with?) It was completely ridiculous, and his way of trying to initiate it was just repeatedly body checking me on the dance floor which I ignored because I thought he was just being drunk and dumb. Turns out one of his friends had to stop him from blindsiding me with a sucker punch to the face (assuming he was able to aim that well) Some

    Text We once had a candidate come into the interview and legit say he wanted to sit behind the desk because he was going to be asking the questions to decide if he wanted to work with us. I think he'd gotten some bad advice about having confidence. I laughed but our HR manager flipped her shit. The only time I have ever seen her call security.

    Text Not me, but my Dad. My Dad has season tickets for the AHL hockey team in town. One day, he was late for a game, and arrived to see a teen in his seat with his girlfriend. My dad kindly asked him to move, explaining that these were his seats. The teen responded with a quick "No its not." My dad then showed him his season tickets, and pointed out on the kids tickets that their actual seats were a few rows up. The kid got up, and tried to square up to my dad. My father was ju

    Text I was standing in the breezeway outside a friend's apartment while in college, and a guy coming down the stairs from an upper floor kinda tripped near the bottom of the stairs and stumbled into me. It was clear he super drunk and immediately got aggressive. He was so worked up about being tougher than me for some reason that he started doing push ups at me while me and my friends just laughed. Fortunately his friends came and apologized and took him back up stairs, but i

The lift that lowers them from the truck has that patterned metal floor and you have to pull the heavy cages hard to get them off, now Im 5'8" and don't have a lot of weight on me but I can pull the

    Text There was this sergeant I had the misfortune of working with who was one of the worst people I've ever met. He was so toxic and "alpha" that people wouldn't ask questions because they didn't want to be put down in front of their peers. He would actively go out of his way go shame what were essentially kids for not knowing something. I had zero respect for that piece of work.

I don't know why, I, out of the table got singled out but a girl walks in and this guy: - complained that I didn't order pizza for him - said 'how about you go fuck yourself when I asked him if he wanted some walked over behind me and 'playfully' puts his arms around my neck, I told him I'd punch him in the face if he did it one more time because I don't

    Text A former coworker. He would just stand in the way and refuse to move. Even if he wasnt in the way he would purposely get in the way. I work in a narrow kitchen so you can imagine how annoying that could be At one particular moment I was carrying a bulky 20 lbs box and he decided to do that. I pretended to not see him and barreled into him. He fell over and got incredibly mad at me. Started talking about how I have no muscle. It was pretty funny. It was a display of the

    Text i used to tend bar in Milwaukee, and there is nothing that triggers self-conscious weiners more than beer. I cannot tell you how many arguments began with some dude - always unsolicited/unprovoked, mind you feeling compelled to judge and "educate" other guys about the beer they're drinking (or not drinking) "You drink that piss, you pussy?" and it goes downhill from there. No one cares. Drink what you like and shut up.

    Text I was walking to my car after school and this guy getting in his car just yells at me "you ugly af, bro." I flipped him off without even looking at him and he yelled "bitch!" and drove off. How petty do you have to be to tell someone minding their own business that they're ugly?

    Text One time at a house party, a few of us were talking to some of the girls there and one of the guys randomly started talking about how he does MMA, then another guy joined in and those 2 started wrestling in front of the girls. I don't think their shirts needed to come off either but what the fuck do I know...

    Text When I was in the military during our PT tests there was a "max" for everything, so once you hit the magical max number there really is no reas for going on. I always had to PT test the same time as my supervisor who was more physically fit than me so when it came time to test he would always go beyond the max number unlike me, who would hit the number and just stop because there was no point. After every test phase, he would get up and yell at me for not "giving it my all"

    Text one guy I know tried to get everyone to whip out their dicks and compare sizes, and honestly it came across as one of the most insecure and childish efforts to assert dominance ever. because dick size has nothing to do with dominance. also this is the guy when we were getting a house insisted "we've all gotta be equals." despite always trying to run things.
