With lions, the women do most of the hunting. The male mostly just deals with the women and scares or kills other dudes that try to trespass. He also kills any women that refuse and the cubs of any women after killing their previous male.Well in the animal kingdom beta males are ruthlessly killed off by Alpha Males. Look at male lions for example, they are tossed out of the pride so the alpha can have all the women to himself.
He doesn't care what the other lions and lionesses think... .
