A couple of months ago on this blog there was a discussion about my original Hierarchy pyramid (see that here). Several people voiced concerns and suggestions about it, and much of it mirrored what I myself struggled with about it.
The inclusion of women in it bothered me. The lack of a category for straight and gay Men who are not beta but also not Alpha. The lack of distinction between Alphas and those Alphas to which they defer (which I’ve dubbed “Supreme Alphas”).
So I’ve created a new pyramid. Here it is:
This new chart satisfies my various theories within the Hierarchical framework. Let me go through some features:
– Once again, I have employed the light/dark halves of the pyramid to delineate the difference between straight and gay males, with straight getting a point extra for their reproductive abilities.
– At the top is a pure-white area for Supreme Alphas. A Supreme Alpha is an Alpha to which other Alphas defer. Sexual orientation absolutely does not apply to these Alphas, since they are largely omnisexual. They are still Alpha, however – dominant, Top, aggressive, Kings.
– Alphas are in an off-white color because sexual preference sometimes applies to them.
– The sub-Alpha category is new. These are straight and gay Men who are not beta males, but not quite Alpha, either. Since I know a few straight Men who fall into this category, I felt it was important to add that class to the chart.
– beta males make up a huge portion of the chart for obvious reasons; most males are beta either consciously or unconsciously.
– In bright pink are the faggots. And it’s one solid color to denote one type of sexual preference/position. Same with objects at the very bottom.
I would welcome any feedback you might have!
