Well, there are many variations of alphas depending on the environment. Though confidence, assertiveness and ego are always visible in their behavior.
I myself am not a typical alpha as I don't have confidence with women. But in every other aspects of life I would be considered an alpha due to my proud nature and willingness to confront rather than run.0
Traditional masculinity has not always been defined this way; the attributes we normally think of as traditional masculinity and femininity were not defined until the french philosophes did so in the Enlightenment era. For the majority of human history, masculinity looked a lot different than it did today.
I think that the retreat from the traditional ideas of masculinity is a cultural response to economic needs. The job market is in demand of those with high emotional intelligence, but not necessarily strength. When we raise children, we do so that they are economically successful and boys who grow up to be intelligent and empathetic are more successful than those whose main skill is brawn.0
1) The concept of alpha and beta males in humans is pseudoscientific bullshit that has been debunked long ago. I wish people would finally stop using this nonsense.
2) It's pretty pathetic how quick people are to proclaim that there's a "war" on certain social norms. War on Christmas and such. Usually conservative snowflakes. Totally ridiculous.
3) What is traditional masculinity anyway? The idea of masculinity has always changed over the course of history. Social norms have never been static, they always evolve. Some people really need to learn to stop being so shit scared of change.59
T'Challa from Black panther is the perfect example of how to be strong and authoritative without verging into toxic masculinity.13
considering the invent of masculinity was to control non whites and women, im cool with doing away with it.22
What Girls & Guys Said
Men are inherently evil this is why they're suitable for war, but they need to take it down a notch when going about their everyday lives.13
I don’t consider myself an alpha, I just do whatever I have to do to win in life without compromising my principles or letting anyone stand in my way.
Masculinity should be defined by the individual30
About god damn time. I mean this nonsense has survived longer than the sociological theory it was based upon.10
Traditional masculinity is both outdated and stupid40
Yes, I think traditional masculinity is under attack in today's society. With that said, we will persevere. We've always triumphed over adversity.12

The concept of an "alpha male" has always been a joke. They make for good characters in movies and books and media. In real life, you either have empathy and emotions or you do not. If an "alpha male" does, they are hiding them. If an "alpha male" does not, they are a Sociopath. Either they are acting or they are genuinely terrible.
Traditional Masculinity is not a joke. It's important. When men don't have enough testosterone, they can become depressed and unbalanced. And traditionally "manly" activities are good skills. Chopping wood is a good skill. Starting a fire is a good skill. Being able to debate is a good skill. Being analytical is a good skill. Understanding technology is a good skill. Skills everybody should learn, man or woman. Being able to control your emotions is also a good skill.
