As a man, any man who calls himself an alpha certainly is not one.

Declaring yourself “alpha male” is one of the weakest things I think any dude could say. It encapsulates every possible insecurity. And frankly, If you just have to say it then it’s probably not true…

Agreed. But it's also - it's not a thing.

Like I know everyone thinks it's a thing, and therefore it's sort of self-becomes a thing. Like the new modern definition of literally. 🤮

But if you look at humans, and now all the latest science and research into animals too, the concept of alpha is just outdated and wrong. Big surprise, everything is more complicated than some binary concept. We humans love are black or white distinctions but basically nothing works that way.

Expectation: "I am alpha."

Reality: "I hit my girlfriend."

lol, but I do believe what they try to state is that they aren’t fickle-minded and can think for their own and are also leaders. But tbh, if you have to call urself as an alpha then that’s extremely cringy since actions speak louder than words. If u state that u are, you most likely aren’t cuz it would otherwise be deduced by ur behavior. Same goes with women that call themselves strong and independent as if those aren’t natural qualities we should strive to be, girlboss, girl power etc. these are the cringiest gendered adjectives

"Any man who must say, I am the King, is no true king. "

Except of course they have to say they are the alpha male, which is a fictional concept about how wolves structure their societies. Instead they are families.

obligatory: "any man who has to remind people he is king, is no king." Or some similar quote from that show I've never watched.

Standing up for others who can not defend themselves in person or online get more brownie points. Most Alpha males care more about the gym and getting the most followers on Instagram and Twitter
