did you check their rings? I don't know what you would think how old I am then!
No need to check for rings...also, many married women in Switzerland, don't necessarily wear a ring.

On my short commute to work (2min), I've overheard a conversation between 2 women on the bus. One was yip-yapping about how she's an alpha female and yadayadayadya....and I started to think, why does every woman who proclaims to be an alpha female, keeps on running her mouth about it? To me, strong men and women do not feel the need to announce their greatness to the world...but women, who (most likely through lack of self-esteem and a couple of relationship mishaps) loose their vocal inhibitions tend to spew out raw sewage on a frequent basis. What's your take on (self-proclaimed) alpha females?

Re: Alpha Females

You can't call yourself Alpha. An alpha is a leader, either by force or personality; in modern life that translates into either being a d!ckhead or charismatic. D!ckhead leaders don't last long and if they are really hung up on being Alph-Or the Great they end up lonely narcissistic fools.

Or something.

Never heard of it mate. Possibly being American is that particular lady's major malfunction...

Er.. and yet, this American female has never heard of it. What part of being on a Tram in Switzerland makes you automatically jump to American?

Re: Alpha Females

For those of you wondering what an alpha female is, I think this is a pretty good article about them:

Pardon my blunt words here...but I detect a slight notion of negativity in your cynicism. Might you have a tad bit of an issue with men?

I think Ouchie summed it up pretty neatly in the second post

being an alpha female is like being a lady; if they have to constantly tell people then they probably aren't.
now it's just banter for the lulz

This question grates on me.

1) because you are talking about a human quality, not a "female" quality
2) because of the words you chose. People don't yip-yap, dogs do.
3) because of the assumptions you are making about strangers
4) because of the blindness to male privilege.

I've never met you in real life, and I often appreciate your comments, and I can't tell if you deliberately wrote this in a way to provoke a response or not, but that's my response.

Kristanez, there is one thing you can be sure of about LiB - unless he's being oh so sweet and helping people (which is often but not often publicly), you can be pretty sure that he's specifically chosen his words to be provocative.

(Don't let it bother you, if he were serious, I'm sure his sweetie would set him straight right quick! )
