    Yep, going off currently popular use of the terms, I suppose I'd be labeled beta sometimes, and maybe alpha others. Who knows, it's pretty subjective, right?

    It always seems funny to me that we humans try to do away with definitions and labels by creating more. Problem with labeling is that it's rarely open to interpretation. It's almost always boxed, and either you're in, or out by default. This, or that. Never both, or there would be a label for that.

    I think we (and yes, even animals) are a bit too complex to fit in nice, tidy little definitions.

    If they must be, then let them be big, grand, sweeping labels. Positive, not limiting or dismissive.

    Alpha male? How about awesome male. Yeah, you can call me that, sure. :)
