I often use the analogy of a loyal dog when describing the relationship a Man or Alpha might have with his owned faggot. Neither a dog nor a faggot are equal to the stature of a Man, but like a faithful dog a faggot can be a beloved possession of the Man.
At least that has been my experience. Of course, my faggot sensibilities and perspective probably color my point of view, too. But honestly, I’ve met so many Alphas who confirm to me that they feel like the dog analogy fits their general view of their faggots.
So I guess that’s why I was a bit surprised (in a nice way) to read the following comment left by Alpha Ranger, an Alpha who runs a blog on BDSMLR about Hierarchy-related issues.
Hey faggot, new commenter here. I’m a gay alpha muscle dad type who has checked out your site from time to time and occasionally binge the podcast on long solo drives.
Anyway, I wanted to comment on the pet dog comparison. I don’t think that is a perfect analogy at all as someone who owns dogs and currently one fag. Most fags who have served me have more than a little masochist side. Dogs dont. I would never slap, push around, or be rough with my dogs. My fag thanks me. My fag understands why my boot is on his face – my dog wouldnt.
Men, especially alphas, all have a lot of aggressive (maybe even a bit violent) energy we carry around and arent allowed to express in polite society (which is a good thing). Fags serve to let us unleash and vent some of that stuff – I think it’s one of their most important roles.
That said, I wholeheartedly agree that beating a fag, or causing serious injury is a step way too far and a man that does that kind of stuff needs a therapist more than a fag.
I love how blunt Alpha Ranger is in describing these primal needs of Men. It’s true. Men often do require ways to express the various shades of rage in their lives, and faggots provide that perfect outlet.
I think it’s an important adjustment I need to make in order to refine my application of this analogy. I think the fag/dog analogy works, but certainly not in all cases or with all Men.
What do you think?
I thank Alpha Ranger for making me look at things from the Alpha perspective!
