Do Alpha Males Exist? (Manthropology #3)

Anybody who has wandered into the reactosphere is likely aware of the concept of the alpha male, which I have come here to discuss today.

The alpha male is that thing that every boy and man who wanders into the manosphere aspires to be, that cool paragon of masculinity who can intimidate men and attract women without a single word. The man for whom all social interactions are an automatic success—in short, the man who is explicitly masculine and can use that masculinity to grab the world by the throat.

Or, if you ask some other people, the idea of the alpha male is merely that: an idea. An insidious idea, a load of smoke and mirrors drummed up by hucksters and Pick Up Assholes, if you’ll pardon me borrowing my own expression, to sell hokey seminars and bootcamps to impressionable and angsty nerds.

This topic is actually a matter of some debate amongst the manosphere and the general alternative media, so I decided to attempt to answer this question using my knowledge of anthropology. In this video, you will learn about the zoological harem structure, and the effects of stress both physical and mental upon upon testosterone production. You will see parallels to human interaction amongst our primate cousins. You will see several of the myths about alpha male-dom acknowledged and debunked. And in the end, you will hopefully have an answer as to whether or not that illusive thing, the alpha male, can be said to truly exist at all.

And so without further ado, here is the third episode of Manthropology.
