I'm not saying that there isn't some metaphorical truth to alpha/beta/theta/omega shit. But reification is poison. You never want to confuse the finger pointing at the moon with the moon.
It's all context based. You've got to know how to dance to the music. I'm not saying it's easy but, come on Gib, it's been like a decade since I've been here. If you were a precocious 13 year old when we met, this is beneath 23 year old you.

Does this make sense?

Is a person not one or the other? Are you implying a person can be both? if so.. how so? in your view.
Magnus Anderson wrote:My intuition tells me that the so-called "alpha chicks" are degenerate women. Basically, they are what happens when folk starts degenerating and social bonds start weakening freeing everyone from their original social roles to become . . . asocial, beast-like, freaks.
That's pretty much what Lady Gaga and Grimes are.

Magnus Anderson wrote:People do not live in a bubble, independently from the rest of the world. When there are other people, there will be social hierarchy, unless they are uncivilized of course, and that means you'll have your role defined, not only by your natural inclinations, but also by external circumstances.
Right, but I'm comparing these alpha girls to other girls, not to men.

That's part of the problem.
Alpha males are superior to beta males but "alpha" females aren't superior to "beta" females, in the same way that criminals are not superior to beta males.
Criminals can dominate betas . . . does not make them superior and it certainly does not make them alphas.
