‘Don’t lean in’ man identifies newest threat to masculinity: crotch pointing

Letting your crotch face your wife in photographs will destroy your masculinity, according to this guy.

For something that’s supposedly so strong, masculinity is also surprisingly easy to break, at least according to a certain subset on the web. The latest threat to patriarchal dominance and the marital stability of alpha men? The relative direction of their crotches in photographs.

Discovered by opinionated Twitter man @Rivelino, it turns out that the crotch direction is of the utmost importance; a woman's pelvis must face her man at all times in photos, while a man's crotch must never face his woman, instead his cock must face the world because "This is correct."

Sir, have you ever seen a vagina before?

Now men can even pose the way they want to with their loved ones without some being criticized? Fucking fantastic. You are literally making up something out of their depths of your I’m assuming lonely brain to do what? Make people feel bad and sell generic merch with lines on it?

Though @Rivelino offers no explanation as to why the different crotch directions are the way they are, he has plenty of other thoughts on angles that he's happily shared with the internet.

The original source of his fame, which he's been posting about since May, is the dire threat to marriage posed by men leaning towards their partners. As Mel Magazine reported at the time, "His theory holds that dudes leaning toward their significant others have compromised their integrity by realigning to a woman’s worldview." That theory was then turned into a meme.

The feminine wants to lean into the masculine  She wants to enter his world, feel his strength, feel his protection & submit to his guidance  Sexual polarity is the foundation for sexual attraction Fire  Sexual polarity is the foundation for love Red heart" a photograph of a blonde white woman leaning her head on the shoulder of a leather jacket wearing white man.

"THEY ARE NOW DIVORCED  When you lean into your girl, you reveal emotional weakness and neediness. Women find this extremely unattractive. You must stay strong. You must stay vigiliant. Don't lean in!  "She loves you when you're strong. She leaves you when you're weak" –Rivelino" a dark haired man leans a blonde women with green lines showing their respective angles and a thought bubble drawn over the woman saying "I gotta get out of here"
@alpharivelino

According to this master of masculinity, these men don't do it because they're taller, or because they love their partners. Instead, it's because of "psychological inferiority or worse, emotional neediness." All of which will drive your woman away, so watch out!

Have you... ever spoke to a woman?

Lol fellas if you cant even lean without losing your "strength" then you were already weak.
@BirateQueen

It's not just heterosexual relations where this comes into play, either! Men better not lean towards each other either, that displays weakness which leads to bands breaking up.

Honestly there's just a plethora of weird shit on @rivolina's Twitter if you're ready to do a deep dive, including the apparently compulsory obsession with feet all of these guys seem to have. So much so that some people are wondering if this is actually satire, or simply a cynical attempt to capitalize off of incels by selling a lot of weird merchandise.

Please tell me this is satire Face with tears of joyFace with tears of joyFace with tears of joy

Wow over 100$ something I could do in mspaint in literally 30 seconds. I now understand the whole point of this nonsense is to sell your pretend “art”.
@BrittanyWebb85
This is such a good incel parody. I think it does a great job capturing incel insecurity about opening up causing them to come off creepy and unattractive
@WFramerate

However, so far, @rivolino seems to be entirely serious about his angles, and all the other strange dominance games he advises men to play with women, and each other. It may seem strange that something they claim is innate to human nature and human relationships needs so many rules and so much reinforcement, but that's just life in the manosphere.
