Top definition
A person who rejects status and authority, believing that thinking for oneself is possible and desirable, and valuing freedom most.

This orientation puts them at odds with most people in society so Gammas tend to perceived as outsiders, but outsider status may or may not be important to their identity. Gammas tend to be comfortable alone, but have material sexual and social needs like all others. Their attitudes towards society tend to alternate towards disdain for "the herd"(Betas) and their cattle ranchers (Alphas), and a struggle to just accept people as they are and give up bitterness. Often they find a small group of other gammas and proud Betas to hang out with. In relations with Strong Alphas the outcome is usually mutual dislike that sometimes develops into grudging respect. In sexual relationships they can be clingy towards the few people they can relate to, use those they don't respect, or be very detached if they have found happiness in their personal pursuits. Socially, Gammas are usually nice but can turn vicious if their personal space is threatened. They reject prevailing morality, and can be extremely cynical and manipulative, or else "find their own way" often drifting towards a quasi-Buddhistic world view.

Gammas tend to derive satisfaction from their private sense of awe, beauty and mystery, rather than social acceptance or material things. The ability to find satisfaction in these things is often what keeps them going while being misfits in society.
Wolverine and the weird kid from American Beauty are Gamma Males, they are "their own people" doing their own thing and mostly want others just to stay the f away from them, unless they "get it". They will both probably retire to the desert and stare into the distance all day.

The third and lowest tier of male social hierarchy. Unlike the dominant alpha or the passive beta, the gamma male's hallmark traits are clinginess, possessiveness, and manipulation. Since he is unable to compete with men above his social tier, he is prone to isolating and manipulating girls, and failing that, throwing guilt trips to keep them on a short leash. While a gamma male is often a self-proclaimed "nice guy", his benevolence is merely a means to an end, which is usually trying to hook up with a girl he is obsessed with. Overly emotional and prone to feelings of unwarranted entitlement, the gamma male would rather blame all of his problems on other people than take responsibility for his own behavior. A truly worthless human being.

A Gamma Male is the third step down in the hierarchical taxonomy of the male sex, directly below a Beta Male and fathoms below an Alpha male. A Gamma Male unconsciously adopts or duplicates female behaviors, values, or expectations in the hopes of winning female admiration. He does this because he is too paralyzingly timid to attempt to directly win the affections of female through the Alpha Male traits of confidence and swagger.

The Gamma Male never appears confident or comfortable with whom he is. In a relationship with a female, he acts like one of her girlfriends. Further, the Gamma Male is wont to show his "feelings" in a cringe worthy manner, bringing audible sighs of shock and disgust from even the most unassertive and passive Beta Males. In comparison to other males of higher evolutionary development, he is a pitiful creature.
You know that screaming queen on 'The Bachelorette' who went and got a tattoo of a heart and a shield on his wrist to profess his undying devotion to the girl he had only known for a few weeks? Yeah, total Gamma Male.

A gamma Male is the type of person to appologise for some shit they should not appologise for, they are a full man-bitch. Lower than beta male.
Alpha: bro I totally just shit in your backpack

Gamma: o sorry, I'll get that out of your way
Alpha: bro what
Gamma: sorry (laughs in that weird ass noise, like a fucked up mouse)
Alpha: our next generation is fucked if there's any more gamma males

A male of any status or tier that is a pseudo-feminist, often advocating the views of female supremacy. They do this out of either a sense of chivalry, the false belief that this belief system will benefit them somehow or as an attempt to fit in with what they believe is normative.

When asked for justifications of his feminist ideals -a gamma male will reveal that he is in fact, a neo-chivalrist. Often they put down adherents of men's rights because those men, in the gamma males point of view don't get laid.

Another typical justification for their belief is that men have more of a choice in mate selection than women. Thus, if a man is falsely accused of any crime by a woman and unjustly found guilty: that man is at fault for picking the wrong mate.

The gamma male is a hypocrite who's status as "gamma" is intended as an insult. As stated before, a gamma male can be of any status. Most typically they are effeminate introverted males who blindly accept the new status quo that women should have more legal rights than men.
When discussing:
The Sara Ylen case (who lost a court case involving her filing false rape charges against multiple men)

Brian Banks who spent 4 years incarcerated before being cleared of rape charges
The fact that men are NOT awarded custody in the majority of divorce cases
The fact that when Patrimony is awarded it is substantially less than when Alimony is awarded in similar circumstances
The fact that police are biased towards arresting men in domestic violence cases where both parties are at fault

A gamma male will assert that there is no problem and that the men probably had it coming anyway.
