This new series describes three types of men. We’ve all heard of alpha and beta males, but it’s not enough to understand the male psyche in action. Cultural pressures in recent decades, such as the deliberate emasculation of little boys, has created a flood of a third type: the gamma male.
Many will spot some exceptions in males they know. Lines of distinction are not totally clear between individuals, because a little bit of the other two roles exist in each predominant alpha, beta, and gamma.
The series should prompt women to ponder these questions and advice:
1. Which type of man you would desire? (Learn to better ID and screen men.)
2. Which type of mate you currently have? (Learn how and even if you want to make adjustments in your life.)
3. Which type of man your boy will grow up to be? (Learn how to avoid over-mothering, especially what we now call helicopter moms and the politically correct. Also, learn how to avoid over-parenting the boy’s father; emasculate the father and you emasculate the son.)
Remember: Men shape society and what people do; women shape the culture with values that determine why people do what they do in society. Men have been shaped by values. Boys are absorbing values, and that’s when they are emasculated and ‘dethroned’ into gammas.
Ladies, you deal with the men in your life, and some of you have or will raise sons. They are already or will come out in one of three predominant mental shapes. They get that way from how they’re raised by their mothers and how mothers chose and treat their fathers.
NOTE: Nothing here implies, infers, or otherwise reflects on the subject of gayness. It’s irrelevant throughout what follows.
