ultra-late GEN-X / GEN-Y cusp males are the most ALPHA.

they were born just as the faggy Age of Aquarius 60s/70s zeitgeist collapsed, then came of age in the full flush of the jingoistic Reagan era, watching Dukes of Hazzard, A-Team and Rambo and Red Dawn every day. no parental supervision, shooting each other w/ replica UZI pellet guns in the woods after school (where they kept a buried cache of Playboy magazines and cigarettes), calling everyone 'faggot' all the time with total impunity and with the general approval of the community.

Same here. 1979-mo. Grew up in working class prole neighborhood in Buffalo. Remember sitting down next to Dad to watch A-Team, Saturday night WWF wrestling, movies like Predator, Rambo, Commando, etc. Really idyllic American prole childhood.
