2016 makes more sense.This was in 2016 and none of them knew or consume redpill content.
I watched the seduction community/PUA community/manosphere/whatever change over many years. Before all those different colored pills started popping up, I often used the term "alpha male" as my PUA peers did to describe a confident man with leadership qualities. At the time, we didn't know that the whole alpha wolf thing was bunk. We didn't know that so many of our concepts and teachings would become warped with all of the worst aspects accentuated through those "pill" ideologies. Whether you like it or not, the word has become associated with some really weird sh!t in general society these days.
It's pretty normal to encounter such terms on a forum full of PUAs, but if I hear a dude in real life say "alpha male" out loud in any context... sus.
