The trump dance should be all anyone needs to see to decide not to vote for him. It’s not just that it’s shit- though of course, it’s really shit. It’s that he thinks it’s the best dance ever. That’s his entire personality right there.
But it’s also an almost perfect weathervane, because there’s people that love it, and as far as I can tell those people all thing it’s great entirely because trump thinks it’s great. As long as he pulls the right face and other people are cheering they’d applaud him doing a jobby in a box.
Surely if you are an Alpha Male! you wouldnt need to announce it.
It’s a really long thread so I might have said this before in it, but, the best thing of all about the “alpha male” thing is that there’s not really such a thing as an alpha male wolf. It’s a wrong theory that only came about because observing wolves in the wild used to be really hard, so the studies were done in zoos. In nature, a normal functioning wolf pack is generally led by an experienced parent wolf- very often a female- and the pack will often drive out or kill anything that acts like the stereotypical “alpha”. But in a zoo, aggression and muscle are rewarded while cleverness, effective pack and food management and succesful social interactions aren’t, because it’s a completely unnatural and compressing environment. That sort of dysfunctional, antisocial behaviour does appear in nature but almost always in a failing pack or one that’s been severely disrupted by human intervention.
So if you say you’re an alpha male, you’re boasting that you live in a cage and only interact with other people that live in cages, and saying that makes you better than people that live in and succeed in civilisation. And funnily enough it’s the same for humans- “alpha” characters generally only succeed in weird dysfunctional situations like prisons, gangs, broken families and badly run companies
