A Pretty Boy is an "8" on the Decile Chart, objectively handsome. Pretty Boys lack the warrior skull shape, excessive testosterone levels and excessive human growth hormone levels required to be Chad or Gigachad. The term is a near-synonym of the word "Chadlite", although the pretty boy can be also be seen as a stand alone variation of Chadlite.


A Pretty Boy is a male whom possesses the angel skull of a female, his sex hormones appear to be in balance. His face looks beautiful while at the same time masculine. He is usually tall, slender with almost no fat and little to no muscle, and no body or facial hair. Male model, Francisco Lachowsk is the archetypal pretty boy.


A study on parental facial masculinity and femininity has shown masculinity of the father's face is extremely heritable for both sons and daughters, in that low masculinity faced fathers have both low masculinity faced sons and daughters, also hi masculinity faced fathers have both hi masculinity faced sons and daughters.[1]

Facial masculinity and facial femininity are two seperate scales. Meaning low facial masculinity does not automatically mean hi facial femininity. A person's face can be low in both facial masculinity as well as facial femininity. The facial masculinity of moms have no affect on the facial masculinity of offspring. masculinity is correlated with beauty but to a much lesser extent than femininity is correlated with beauty. Meaning that a guy with a hyper masculine face could still be considered ugly or unattractive.

Pretty boys are indeed primarily caused by non dominant and or non aggressive looking men reproducing. The sons prettiness is exacerbated if the mom has a face hi in femininity (highly correlated with beauty, as well as excessive estrogen levels). Some pretty boy exacerbating factors are environmental pollutants like synthetic estrogens found in plastic softeners, fraternal birth order, unnatural diet, the mother having excessively high estrogen levels while pregnant, mutational load (inbreeding), natural genetics, autism or any combinations of the above. Informal physiognomy experiments done by the Incel wiki team, suggest pretty boy/male model looking guys as well as pretty/model looking girls have been assortatively mating (beautiful people mating with other beautiful people) and thus very likely do have a higher mutational load, which is associated with a higher rate of homo/bisexuality.

Indeed, an informal study again done by the Incel wiki team showed only 11 out of 50 top male models of all time have children (normally rich, successful males are near guaranteed to have children), suggesting that even though on average handsome men are less likely to be gay[2]. In the closet homo/bisexuality appears to be over represented among pretty boys as well as professional male models.

Another exacerbating factor in the creation of pretty boys is a constant depressed mood, producing higher levels of cortisol and the subsequent lowering of testosterone that results from high cortisol levels, leading to a higher Cortisol/T ratio, which results in a incomplete level of masculinization of the face and body during puberty. This is why sadboys, and emo guys are always feminine/androgynous looking. For example, there are no cases of emo bodybuilders, because lifting weights elevates one's mood, raises self esteem, as well as testosterone and has anti-depressant effects.[3] Pretty boys may also have a genetic pre-disposition toward depression, as well as substance abuse. These traits are usually passed on from mother to son, since these traits significantly lower male fertility but not female.[4] The results of the parental facial masculinity and femininity study show that since masculine facial features are only inherited from paternal DNA, a man cannot reproduce a massively more masculine faced son from mating with a masculine faced woman. A man's facial masculinity thus comes from secondary, indirect factors such as regression toward the mean, recessive genes, genetic mutations, inbreeding depression, outbreeding depression, atavisms and any other currently unknown factors as well. Essentially through the primary, direct factor of male choice, sexual selection. The best men can do is reliably reproduce pretty boys/chadlites and Stacys, as well as Gigastacys. On the other hand again, because masculine facial features are only inherited from paternal DNA, women can select men that have both masculine and or beautiful faces. Thus under female mate choice, women can reliably reproduce any form of Chads(lite,gigga,pretty) as well as any form of Stacys(lite,gigga).


Pretty Boys tend to have an excessive interest in "The Arts" this includes, but is not limited to, music (instrumental and vocal), dance, drama, folk art, creative writing, architecture, painting, sculpture, photography, graphic design, industrial design, costume and fashion design, motion pictures, television, radio, film, and video. Their excessive interest is thought to be because of both socialization and hormonal profile.

Pretty Boys have a protruded maxilla. A protruded maxilla increases the volume of the resonance chamber, (the mouth.) This leads to richer vocalization, so Pretty Boys just look like singers, and therefore are encouraged to become them.

It is thought that exposure to hi estrogen, feminizes their subconscious behavior, and their singing voice, making their adult singing voice beautiful instead of sexy.

Justin Bieber is an example of a Pretty Boy whom has a protruded maxilla, whom also has a beautiful singing voice.

Male Social HierarchiesEdit

Despite the vast majority of women fawning over him, a Pretty Boy can range from near the top of a male social hierarchy, to absolute rock bottom, depending on the Pretty Boy's degree of feminization. Pretty Boys are "8's" on the Decile Scale but generally are treated as if they are "5"s by other males. Since the vast majority of bluepilled, and even some redpilled men have absolutely no clue just how hi a Pretty Boy's S.M.V. is, most men are completely blindsided when their girlfriends and wives, are cheating on them with a Pretty Boy. Generally Pretty Boys are like chameleons in Male Social Hierarchies, they tend to blend in among men, but stand out to women. If a woman is cheating on her partner, its most likely with a Pretty Boy.

When Justin Bieber first became famous, men thru him under the bus, poured gasoline over it, and set the bus on fire, all while taking selfies on a flip phone.

When Robert Pattinson starred in Twighlight and girls went crazy over him, guys were in an outrage like angry Feminists, but when action hero Gigachad face duo Brad Pitt, and Tom Cruise starred in Interview with the Vampire, and girls went crazy over them, guys didn't say a word.

Hyper feminized Pretty Boys are called Cutecels.

Mating strategyEdit

Some Blackpill theorists suggest Pretty boys are "alpha-beta males" in that they spread their genes thru a short term mating strategy like Chad does but reproduce a large number of sexy daughters instead of sexy sons.

Empirical studyEdit

The earliest looks studies done in 1997, concluded that feminine faced males were more attractive than masculine faced males.[5] However numerous studies done since then have shown hyper masculinity is far more attractive and far more correlated with sexual success.[6]

The original looks studies were officially debunked about 10 years after the original studies were published, the new studies basically state that women are unattracted to males with only feminine traits and no masculine, but are fine with men looking feminine/androgynous as long as said men also have at least some hyper masculine features.[7]

the original looks studies from 1997 were extremely flawed due to the researchers confusing femininity for beauty. Beauty is a stand alone trait, that has overlap with femininity. Beauty is attractive in both sexes. Some facial features such as full lips are inherently beautiful and are thus attractive on both men and women. Any facial morph were the more "masculine" face has thinner lips, is going to be rated as less attractive. When the feminine/beautiful traits are left alone but the masculine traits exaggerated, the face is more attractive. Autists have an extremely hard time distinguishing femininity from beauty due to being bad with faces (Prosopagnosia) (face-blindness).

In short women couldn't care less if a dude looks like a chick as long as the guy has some super masculine features, such as strong jaw, chin, hunter eyes, very large full eyebrows, etc. Still when given the choice between a pretty boy and a manly man women tend to choose the manly man. Romance novels often use long haired, aesthetic pretty boys with added rippling muscles as cover models to appeal to as many different women's preference as possible.

Previous studies (done as early as 1997) on sexual dimorphism showed feminine preferences in female faces and mixed findings in male faces. A 2014 study on preferences for sexual dimorphism on attractiveness levels in male faces found both male and female participants preferred masculine faces to androgynous faces in high attractiveness, but mixed results in low attractiveness.[8]

Despite mixed results on facial androgyny. Empirical study has shown behavioral androgyny to be linearly correlated with more opposite sex partners.

There is considerable evidence that human sexual orientation is genetically influenced, so it is not known how homosexuality, which tends to lower reproductive success, is maintained in the population at a relatively high frequency. One hypothesis proposes that while genes predisposing to homosexuality reduce homosexuals' reproductive success, they may confer some advantage in heterosexuals who carry them. However, it is not clear what such an advantage may be.

A study done in 2008 on Genetic factors predisposing to homosexuality increasing mating success in heterosexuals, shows that psychologically masculine females and psychologically feminine men are (a) more likely to be gay but (b), when straight, have many more opposite-sex partners. With statistical modelling of the twin data, the study shows that both these relationships are partly due to pleiotropic genetic influences common to each trait. They also find a trend for heterosexuals with a non-heterosexual twin to have more opposite-sex partners than do heterosexual twin pairs. Taken together, these results suggest that genes predisposing to homosexuality confer a mating advantage in heterosexuals,[9] which helps explain the evolution and maintenance of homosexuality in the population. This study doubles as evidence for genetic determinism.

In a study done by the Department of Psychology, University of Göteborg, Sweden. Photographs of physically attractive men and women were presented as depicting homosexuals and heterosexuals to subjects on the University of California at Berkeley campus who were generally judged to be nonhomophobic opposite-sexed students. Analysis showed that the 62 women rated 3 men as significantly more physically attractive when they believed the men were homosexual than when they believed the men were heterosexual. The 65 men did not rate photographs of 3 women as more physically attractive when they believed the women were lesbian compared to when they believed the women were heterosexual. The results illustrate an effect of the "gay-pretty-boy stereotype," namely, that women judged to be nonhomophobic perceived homosexual men as more physically attractive than comparable heterosexual men.[10]

Studies done on hand attractiveness show women prefer men to have androgynous looking hands, specifically large palms, and very long, thin, slender fingers,"aristocratic" looking fingers. Women also want these androgynous hands to be extremely strong! As hand grip strength is positively correlated with reproductive success![11][12][13][14]


The results from a survey of over 1,500 people subscribed to ELITESINGLES magazine shows 81% of women with partners whom took the survey stated that they would like their partner to show more emotion. despite women overwhelmingly establishing that they prefer a man who is open about his emotions, 16% of men (around 1 in 6) wrongly believe that women find emotional men less attractive.[15]

A human being is capable of expressing over 400 different feelings and emotions [16] The women are not saying they want their partner to verbally express their emotions more, like "I am sad." They are saying they want their partner to be more non verbally expressive of their emotions in general, in a showy way, such as a professional actor, singer, or motivational speaker would. When they're partner is angry, they want the man to yell and fly into a rage, or when the partner is happy, express this thru nonverbal cues such as winks, smiles, dancing etc. Basically the women want their partners to be more dramatic and entertaining.

Women want men to be able to seamlessly transition from stoic and cool to cocky, amazed, amuzed, or any one of the hundreds of emotions a human is capable of, at all the appropriate moments, at a moments notice, something that autists are incapable of doing. Which is another reason women have an burning hatred for autists.

Scents and flowersEdit

A study done on the effects of flowers on mating attractiveness and behavior, showed that 18–25-year-old women (N = 600) walking alone in a shopping mall, when approached by an physically attractive 20-year-old male-confederate soliciting them for their phone number. Agreed more favorably to the confederate's courtship solicitation when solicited in the area of the flower shop than compared to a cake shop, or a women's shoes shop. Positive mood induced by exposure to flowers was used to explain these results.[17] Also in two more experiments, women's perception of male attractiveness and women's potential mating behavior are positively affected by simple exposure to flowers. In Study 1 women who were exposed to flowers while they watched a video of a man perceived the man to be more attractive and sexier. They also reported being more inclined to accept a date from him. In Study 2 women who were exposed to flowers responded more favorably to an explicit solicitation from a male confederate in a subsequent interaction. The results show that the simple exposure to flowers had a significant effect on women's perception of mating attractiveness and behavior.[18]

These results suggest the typical unnattractive if ugly, romantic if Chad display of giving a woman flowers leads to sexual opportunities. The results also suggest physically attractive men wearing flower scented perfume, would be seen as even more sexually attractive.

Rise of androgynyEdit

Androgyny has been gaining more prominence and notice in popular culture since the early 21st century, concurrent with the rise of feminism and matriarchal society. The rise of the metrosexual man in the first decade of the 2000s has been described as a related phenomenon associated with this trend. The androgynous trends in fashion hit the public mainstream in the 2000s (decade) that featured men sporting different hair styles: longer hair, hairdyes, hair highlights. Men in catalogues started wearing jewellery, make up, visual kei, designer stubble. These styles have become a significant mainstream trend of the 21st century, both in the western world and in Asia.[19] The androgynous K-pop culture has now official infected the western world thru the cellphone app Tik Tok in the form of E-boys, whom are the male equivalents to Instagram models.

For decades the Manosphere has been afraid that women's selection for hyper-masculine men would lead to extinction thru nuclear war, or some other form of violent collapse of civilization.

Reality is that men are becoming more androgynous (highly masculine in some ways and highly feminine in others), and society is not collapsing but slowly grinding to a halt, and will eventually come to a standstill as more men stop working jobs that benefit, innovate or bring value to society in some way and instead focus on LDRing, NEETing, or spending all their time looksmaxxing. The inevitable and eventual result is nearly every male in western society spending every ounce of their free time looksmaxxing in an effort too pass on their genes. We know this because western society is becoming an exact mirror image of society within the Wodaabe African tribe, the most matriarchal society on the planet.
