I’m not sure there is a famous person anywhere who embodies everything faggots love about Alphas more than Channing Tatum. He’s handsome, built, sexy, self-effacing, charming, and, of course, somewhat bi-friendly.
Like most Alphas, Tatum excelled at sports like football (he was named “Most Athletic” in high school). After graduation, Tatum started dancing at strip clubs (the eventual inspiration for Magic Mike). He was discovered by a modelling agency, and his career deservedly took off from there.
I was mostly unaware of Tatum until Stop-Loss came out in 2008. I went to see the film in order to ogle star Ryan Phillippe (we will be discussing this incredible hunk soon), but found myself mesmerized by Tatum instead. Most Alphas have a look of power and danger sizzling behind their eyes, and Tatum has that in spades.
Later films flaunted Tatum’s body and dance moves, as well as his terrific sense of humor. Ever ambitious, Tatum refuses to make a film without also being named a producer so that he can exert control over the production.
The thing I love most about Channing is the fact that he knows his masculinity exerts power over everybody around him, but he doesn’t feel a need to “prove” himself to anybody. He’s quietly confident in his own skin, comfortable with his own Alpha strength.
If any Alpha ever deserved to own a legion of faggot slaves, it’s Channing Tatum. Do you agree? What are your favorite Tatum moments?
