I am critical of a lot of Manosphere concepts because they are simple-minded and because of that, often false. Alpha and Beta, for example.
If you apply r/K selection theory to them...
r is promiscuous, not overly bright, usually has many children but doesn't take care of them. Think rabbits. K is monogamous, smarter, has fewer kids but invests more in them. Think wolves.
"Alphas" (the accepted definition of which is a clinical narcissist) would be r - promiscuous, not very smart, lack romanticism and love, would end up with a lot of children except for birth control...not to mention antibiotics.
"Betas" would be K - monogamous, smarter, believers in romance and love. Because, among humans, you have to love your children to spend all that time and effort raising them. The r-selected would just as soon abort them.
Some, actually many, Mansosphere concepts are based on women being loveless "hypergamous" whores who are only interested in "Alpha Fux and Beta Bux." They are only interested in "resources" and "cash and prizes." To the extent those women exist they are r-selected.
For some reason - immaturity and lack of experience, I guess - much of the Manosphere idealizes not-very-bright r-selected "Alphas," ones apparently incapable of love. And they put down "Betas" as chumps - even though they don't understand what they really are.
That is, monogamous, K-selected, intelligent, believers in patriarchy and natural hierarchies. As Koanic Soul puts it, "K societies develop and enforce fitness-encouraging rules, mores, rituals, codes, cultures. E.g., chivalrous combat, e.g. romantic love."
One thing I have noticed is that the K-selected have romantic feelings before sexual ones. The r-selected, who have mostly sexual feelings, may be incapable of love.
I can remember having romantic feelings at the age of 11, but did have not sexual ones until 12. And I am a believer in monogamy, natural hierarchies, rites and rituals, and chivalry in the original sense - an armed man who will defend the weak and helpless.
You think r-selected "Alphas" would do that? Or would they run in a tough situation?
I have known r-selected "Alphas" who spent their lives seducing women. They were not that bright and very impulsive. And they ruined their lives on reaching middle age.
The K-selected don't even like promiscuity. They may have engaged in it as an experiment, as I have, but they are always capable of having sex with five times as many times as many women as they do. It just doesn't mean anything.
Every promiscuous "Alpha" I have known has been a coward. Bluff and a big mouth, covering up the fact they're as empty as a balloon inside. And the r-selected are parasites who destroy societies.
These Manosphere concepts of "Alpha" and "Beta" will someday go away. It might take a while, but go away they will.
