I'm making a newer, narrower topic to address this.
Lemme start with this. While there is a pushback against social change by so-called "alpha males", from what I read, there are many studies showing the following: they make bad husbands, they make bad fathers, they're more likely to cheat on their wives, more like to be abusive, and at the same time... women are very strongly attracted to them. However, I think their pushback is nothing more than the angry grasping of a group of people who can't handle inevitable change. What are they pushing back against? Changing gender roles mostly - misandry (which is
a problem) as well, but basically the most vocal of them appear to be just showy thugs.
Society is changing in many ways, and I think "alpha" may be reduced in importance (I won't say "on the way out" because it will always exist and have a role to play - for instance, the military).
See, a couple things are happening. There are changing gender roles, and related to it, an increase in egalitarian marriage (current studies on it are mixed - there are those that work out fantastically, and there are those where the spouses have difficulty with knowing how to relate. Apparently, the current ideal is to have the woman make 40% of the income and the man do 40% of the housework). But another sea change is coming: the rise of understanding of bullying.
Major social changes will probably be more successful if big corporations not only accept, but embrace them, as the thing is, studies are coming out showing not only the harmful lifelong effects of bullying on the victim (and the bully), but also how bullying can reduce the efficiency of a workplace by causing both victims and bystanders to be more likely to put less effort into work, more likely to quit (if that option is viable), and more likely to try to sabotage or "get back at" the workplace. Naturally, any employer would want to avoid this. Simple solution: don't hire bullies. And what kinds of people are most likely to be bullies? Probably "alpha males" and "queen bees".
Evolutionarily, traits that today would be considered negative or downright wrong, such as tendency to commit rape or cheat on spouses (and therefore abandon their kids to live with a single parent) would have been traits that helped propogate the species. Now, we have birth control. If a woman knows that a man might be a good lay, but a bad husband, she just takes the pill and doesn't pass on his genes.
Anyway, there's a lot more I could say, but I'll stop here. Whta do you guys think? Any other thoughts you have would be appreciated.
