What It Means to Be a Badass?
We’ve all heard the term “badass” being thrown around to describe certain men. Most of the time it’s actors who portray them on television: Clint Eastwood, James Dean, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, Sam Jackson and Brad Pitt in Fight Club. Or maybe you’re more familiar with some real life badasses such as the firefighters who ran into the Twin Towers on 9/11 or the guys who took out Bin Laden.
Whatever the case may be, there seems to be a certain group of men that get the distinction of wearing this term with pride. But what is the definition of badass? And furthermore, is it possible to become a badass or do you have to be born one?
So what is the true definition of badass? Well, according to Urban Dictionary, it is described as:
- Adjective. Having extremely favorable qualities
- Adjective. Pertaining to a person or thing that is rugged, strong, and/or ready to show these qualities
- Noun. Person who is perceived to have the qualities of definition number two
The very first definition shows how favorably society looks upon a badass. Even if that means they get in trouble or may not be the typical “good guy” in every situation. Take for instance, the definition according to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary:
- often vulgar: ready to cause or get into trouble : mean <pretending to be a badass gunslinger – L. L. King>
- often vulgar: of formidable strength or skill <such a badass guitar player – N’Gai Croal>
No matter how you look at it, being a badass sounds pretty damn cool. And not just to guys; to girls as well. It denotes the “typical bad boy” that so many girls want to get with – and that so many guys want to be.
And while the definition seems to be pretty cut and dry, what doesn’t appear to be so set in stone is the type of badass you can be. It seems like there are many different ways to be considered one so let’s take a look at some of the characteristics to see if we can’t get at the true definition of it:
- Doesn’t take any BS from anybody
- Always has women falling off of him
- Has a swagger in his walk
- Never has a “nerd moment”
- Drinks manly drinks
- Seems to know a little about everything
- Is always a cool, calm and collected customer
- Rides a motorcycle or has a powerful ride
- Doesn’t wear sweaters or scarves
- Probably wears sunglasses at night
While some of these may look a little cliché, there’s no denying that if you saw someone that fit each one of those characteristics, you’d call them a badass.
Why Do Women Love a Badass?
So, the eternal question remains: why do women love a badass so much? Well, put quite simply, a badass knows how to handle himself and most importantly, knows how to handle his lady. He’s always in command of every situation and a woman can feel safe around him; she can feel safe to let loose her wild side as well as feel safe in the world around her.
And that’s what women crave from an evolutionary standpoint: a protector. Someone who can provide protection for her and their eventual offspring. And even if those offspring never come (and chances are you’re not shooting to impregnate every girl you meet), the woman still feels that innate pull towards the protector, the provider: the badass.
And when she feels this pull, she gives in to his every want because she wants to please him. That’s because she knows that he has his pick of women and that makes him even more desirable; it makes her even more eager to do anything he wants, just so she can be the object of his desire.
The badass makes it look easy to pick up women because for him it is easy to pick up women! You’ve seen the guy at the bar, women hanging off of him; him taking his pick from the crowd and leaving the party early with a girl or two. Maybe he even comes back later when he’s done with them and picks up another one.
And as much as any woman wants to deny this attraction or this truth of the badass, deep inside they know it’s true. That’s why they’ll always fall for the bad boy.
How Do You Become a Badass?
So, by now you’re probably saying, “This sounds great. Sign me up. I want to be a badass.” But how do you go about that? It’s not some overnight transformation that you can make. It’s not just about going out and buying a Harley or changing your wardrobe or getting the right look. Of course, that can help you with your image, but you don’t want to just look like a badass; you want to be one in every sense of the word.
