Are alphas evil masterminds who prey on vulnerable weaklings and sexually exploit them or is the process more benign??

I don’t think there’s anything benign about an Alpha’s usage of faggots. After all, faggots aren’t puppies. They are servants and slaves of Men. Alphas take full advantage of that. 

But they aren’t evil in doing that. They are simply fulfilling their role in the Hierarchy, something as Natural in this world as the law of gravity or the law of electromagnetism. This is how the world works.
