Omega Male: No Longer Just a Metaphor


Speaking of omega males, I just saw the trailer for the latest animation blockbuster, Alpha and Omega . It’s about a boy wolf and a girl wolf who get relocated by well-meaning park rangers thousands of miles from home and have to find their way back. On the journey, the usual adventure and romance ensues. The twist: SHE is the alpha and HE is the omega. So Jess, after your brilliant story on omega males , it’s no longer a metaphor. Even the actual wolf packs have caught on.
