for Inflated Lat Syndrome. ILS is a primal threat
/mating display observed in the human male. The ILS display involves the male human holding out it’s arms away
from it’s body at approximately
a 20-40 degree angle
and then walking
with a slow deliberate gait inorder to look more imposing to other
humans. The posture
is used primarily
as a form of non-verbal communication such
as a mating display to attract or impress females or as a defense or dominance posture
larger to a threat
or to intimidate rival males.
ILS displays can be observed :
In the gym after
an insecure male works out for 3-5 minutes.
On the beach when a single male approaches a group of females.
When a male enters a bar or dance
When a male is too scared to throw the first punch in a fight.
On the outside of mosh pits
by the bouncer who’s had enough of sweaty punks bumping in to him.
