Betas. You realise that the bloke who did the study that coined the term Alpha for wolves later did more complete research and realised he was wrong about the social structure of wolves? That their social structure is more complex than he previous had thought? And that human behaviour is even more complex than this?

And, even if the beta male bs was real, it implies that those following the traditional art world guidance on what to like are somehow "alphas", which is hilarious.
