As soon as the words “alpha male” come out of a man’s mouth I nope TF outta there - that’s literally all I need to know about them 🙄

I got into a drunken conversation with someone I met at a friends house a few weeks ago, he was VERY drunk. He kept referring to us both as alpha males. It made me rather uncomfortable and honestly he didn’t seem very alpha to me. I’ve never considered myself an alpha male

The whole alpha and beta thing is ridiculous - it’s a good thing that that convo made you uncomfortable…it means that you’re a normal human that doesn’t have to feel superior or create some fucked up testosterone fueled hierarchy to validate yourself

testosterone fueled

I got a bunch of testosterone fueled friends. None of them use 20 year old memes to make themselves feel better about transitioning.

…and they’re not the problem 💖 the behavior and archetype I was describing is, however, testosterone fueled.

Trans guy on T here, even right after I slather testosterone gel on my shoulders like I'm trying to make bricks out of the gel I'd never call myself or anyone else an alpha male anything but ironically. It's such a stupid concept.
