Featured Episode


Virgin vs. Chad, also known as Virgin Walk, refers to a series of illustrations comparing various "virgin" men with low self-confidence to their Chad Thundercock counterparts. After an MS Paint depiction of the walk began circulating online in March 2017, other illustrations of "virgin" behaviors began appearing on the /r9k/ board on 4chan.


On April 23rd, 2016, a 4chan user submitted a post titled "Virgin signs," listing the "infamous virgin walk" as a way to identify a virgin on the /r9k/ board (shown below).[8] In the thread, the gait was described as someone walking with "hands in your pockets and always looking down." On March 25th, 2017, an illustration depicting an example of the "virgin walk" was posted to /r9k/ (shown below).[7]

The "virgin walk" is essentially a trap: you make a vague post about it, and anyone who worryingly asks what it is outs themselves as an insecure beta. The image itself is just one massive combo of stuff people do when they walk. Maybe you fidget with your hands, maybe your strides are a little long, but confirmation bias makes you look at the whole thing and instantly feel bad about yourself.
