“Alpha Male”

Alpha…Sigma…Beta…this shit has to stop. We are not wolves. It’s just sad.

If you’re a lost man, you may have resigned yourself to some sad redpill group and adopted this terminology. Taking refuge in a toxic oasis for the downtrodden, you may feel like by pooling your misery together, you will somehow magically become a “high-value male.” And of course, you get funneled into buying some masculinity courses that promise your revenge on the females who did not accept you before (even though you probably never tried or acted creepy).

Run! It’s not real. Not only is publicly calling yourself alpha considered a beta thing, but it’s also laughably lame. It’s about as cringe as someone who demands to be called by a nickname they chose. Outside of these groups and influences, in the real world, it is not anything redeemable.

There’s more. The popular beers nowadays are loaded with calories and by law don't have to be marked with nutritional information. The hazy beers, milkshake IPA’s, fruited sours, and imperial stouts are not only very strong in alcohol but loaded with…
