  1. Dear Chris: So glad you enjoyed my recent story on Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Best wishes. Chris

  2. Thanks for liking my recent post, and good essay on the concept of alpha in relation to humans. There are breeding programs introducing the red wolf back into the ecosystem here in Alabama, Florida, and the Southeast. Also, there’s a new emergent species, the coywolf. PBS has a doc on both coywolves and red wolves. You’re correct about the usage of “alpha” in relation to humans and piss poor behavior. It’s a stereotype that’s damaged the reputation of wolves, even ignorantly used to thwart conservation efforts. We’ve had encounters with the type of assholery you’re talking about – and you’re right, there’s a huge difference.

    I grew up in the mountains of Tennessee (Great Smokies) and north Alabama. I’ve had my run-ins with bonafide misogynists. It pisses me off when pop culture and “intersectionality” purposefully confuses and conflates masculinity with misogyny. That shit needs to stop. If the politically correct tittie-babies of pseudo issues knew and witnessed the shit I have they may just think twice about their cry-bullying. Pseudo narratives too often over-shout and obfuscate actual victims. i.e. My sister’s friend, Joanie, was shot and killed in front of her son in 2018. They were driving to the boy’s birthday party. (https://wdef.com/2018/07/16/sister-remembers-soddy-daisy-woman-killed-domestic-violence-situation) And, yes, there’s a long history of domestic violence behind that crime. (The Twelve Tribes origin is located in this area of Tennessee. Local culture and churches promote domestic battery.)

    Keep writing and drawing a definitive line between masculinity and assholery. I feel that much of the anti-masculine rhetoric is damaging to kids, especially little boys. I’ve often used the term “patriarchy” in both positive and negative ways, which infuriates every angle and side. It’s a neutral word; we pack our own meaning onto it. A good patriarch is the bread-winner who provides for his family, and does so lovingly not lordingly. No example of a negative use of that term needed.
    Take care,
    Amber
