A Tommy is a very good looking and sexually successful Italian man. Tommy is the Italian equivalent of chad and is used on Italian incel forums and the Redpillatore Italian manosphere blog.
Description[edit | edit source]
According to Redpillatore, the italian Tommy has an atlanto-mediterranid phenotype while the typical american Chad is nord-Cromagnoid. This means Chad attracts women through masculine features such as strong browridge and wide chin, while Tommy is more leptomorphic and more similar to the archetype of Pretty boy.
Disputes over the italian translation of "Chad"[edit | edit source]
On the italian chan diochan, the term Giggino is used as Italian equivalent of chad.
Varg, one of the administrators of brutti.red, strongly opposes the use of this term because it reminds him the Italian politician Luigi di Maio, who isn't a very attractive man. The owner of the Redpillatore blog agreed with Varg saying that <<Giggino is the opposite of virility>>.
Wizard, another administrator of brutti.red, said instead that Tommy is a <<a completely invented term without any relevant bibliographic evidence>>, and he encourages the use of Giggino because it's <<widely used for a long time on the most important italian chan diochan>>.
