    Re: Alpha male

    Alpha male is a term that haunts the mind of betas. Don't waste your time with such concepts.

    Love who you love and live. Let others make labels and worry with upholding them.

    Re: Alpha male

    I see the term alpha male in the same light i see the gender definitions of masculine and feminine. We made that **** up, it caught on, and people try to center their lives around it. We are born to a relatively blank slate, until we become bombarded with societal roles. We try to label everything, to understand it. As is our nature. But the more evolved we become, the less important it is to categorize everything and place everyone into a box. The term alpha male is just that... a term some person made up. I wish we'd stop creating pointless expectations of ourselves. Lets see what could hapoen when we are allowed to unfold, naturally.

    Perhaps the term was made up, but was the observed behavior characterizing it also invented?

    Right, right....but check this out....right, so their Jesus was, healing the lame, raising the dead, chasing out the usurers, feeding the multitudes, walking on water, all that bad ass stuff right

    and yet the Pharisees and Sadducees after witnessing this had intent, made plans, and went about carrying out a mission to kill him. (which, He allowed, but you know, they didn't know He had given them His blessing)

    So Jesus is kicking ass and taking names, doing some unbelievable ****, and these cats seen him raising people from the dead and said, "Oh, we gots to kill this mofo..."

    What powers did these cat's think they had to take on someone who could raise the dead?

    That's some real chutzpah.

    I use the term, but only because people understand it.

    As males go, I prefer to think of myself as the Alpha and the Omega.

And sometimes you didn't want to know the end… because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing… this shadow. Even darkness must pass."

    Societal roles are not just fabricated out of thin air. They exist because people take them on. They were labeled upon observation. It's rare that we make up concepts and then enforce them.



    We try to label everything, to understand it. As is our nature. But the more evolved we become, the less important it is to categorize everything and place everyone into a box.
    recognizing patterns in behavior is not placing it into a box. The planning into boxes is normally self inflicted.
    The term alpha male is just that... a term some person made up.
    To describe an architype of human behavior that absolutely exists. They didn't just make up the word and the idea to place people in a box it was to describe a behavior pattern in a form of short hand like saying something is jovial or friendly verses describing every single behavior individually.

    I wish we'd stop creating pointless expectations of ourselves. Lets see what could hapoen when we are allowed to unfold, naturally.
    That's what has been happening for millennia. Sometimes people like to study behavior or characterize behavior so as to not have to write a dissertation on a person every time they refer to them.

    Alpha male is a label nothing more it doesn't put you in a box or create expectations it's like the label dog. It doesn't place any socal expectations on the animal just that it is this species. It didn't create the concept of a dog it's just what we call a particular type of animal.

    Re: Alpha male

    We arent that old. Our compassion, our style, our politics, our morals, our stereotypes... all constantantly evolving. Even the gender argument of boy vs girl... toys, clothing, actions, etc. We are so brand new to all of this. My favorite example is when men nkw bitch about the destruction of masculinity in terms of fashion and personality. You dont have to go very far back to see all of the different styles men wore throughout the years . We think skme men are metrosexual now? HA. guys, your realize your "wranglers and cowboy boots" are no where near the foundation of what it means to be a man. Before you, men were wearing flamboyant, tight clothes. None of our definitions of man and woman mean ****. Its changed a ton of times

    There is no such thing as a alpha male. The guy that coined the term admitted that he made a mistake about wolves. What he actually observed was a family unit. What the guy was observing was parents and kids, not adults males.
