when i think of alpha male i think of ceos, generals, presidents. But alot of my friends see alpha males as being guys with big muscles, big cocks, lots of women. Now im kinda confused, alpha male status is based on power. In todays society the ceos, presidents, generals have the power, the buff guys are hired by them. like the alpha gorilla persuades his gang of teenage gorillas to serve him and help him reinforce his power. so why are buff men/well hung men/players told by media and society that they are alpha males?? is it to pacify them? so they dont go after the top job? Is the alpha male being seen as the buff/hung/player an ideology used to control men who are physically stronger from upsetting the power structure? Like this ideaology is so ingrained in society that people dont even realise they believe in it, or never question it?
