Mailvox: in defense of “squee”

Perlhaqr attempts what I can only see as a futile defense:

I have to admit I’m somewhat confused by your diagnosis of scalzification via use of the word “squee”.  I use that term all the time, and I’m one of Correia’s Alphas. I don’t see the ideological binding of the term, I’m afraid.

The binding is not ideological, but socio-sexual.  Now, I don’t happen to know what “one of Correia’s Alphas” might be, but I find it very hard to conceive that Perlhaqr is either a sexual ALPHA as per Roissy or an Alpha Male according to the socio-sexual hierarchy. He might as convincingly attempt to defend his predilection for hair-braiding or high heels.  Alphas do not menstruate, they do not use their iPhones to self-shoot in bathrooms, (they seldom have iPhones in the first place), and they most assuredly do not “squee” over anything.

One can be excited.  One can be pumped, jacked, or psyched. One can rejoice, one can enthuse, and one can celebrate.  But one can no more be an alpha male and “squee” than one can queef, lactate, or get pregnant.  Only gamma males like McRapey, who revel in their perverse delusions, consider it not only fitting, but downright cool, to express themselves in terms that are popularized and primarily utilized by junior high school girls.

Should he wish to lower the probability of attractive adult women recoiling in disappointment, disgust and outright horror, Perlhaqr may also wish to consider excising “OMG”, “ZOMG”, “soooooooo”, and “One Direction” from his vocabulary.
