Being both Masculine and Alpha

_RFX, Renzo nude, goatee, armpit, pierced nippleThere are pockets in U.S. society which either want or would prefer that people look down on a guy who is masculine and/or who has an “alpha” type personality; as though being one or being both is supposed to be some negative, bad, and perhaps dangerous thing. Well, fuck people who either think like that or want to believe that sort of thing! It’s not my fault that such people can neither understand nor accept the kind of men (like me) who happened to be both.

Men like us will neither be guilted into nor shamed for being who we are. We will never feel obligated to somehow “tone down” our measure of masculinity, masculine demeanor, nor any “alpha-type” personality we may happened to have due to the sensitive and/or insecure nature or feelings of other people. Furthermore, I am only qualified to assess and take comfort in and with my own level or measure of masculinity and personality type. It’s never my place to assess and/or judge that of another man. I believe society would be better off if they’d simply follow my position on this.

I recently tweeted this:
RobFather Tweet (12APR2019)-3Among a host of other things I attribute to the “me” that I am, my self-confidence, both my psychological stability and sexual security and comfort, my leadership and managerial skills, my strength, patience, love, and concern as a father, how I choose or prefer to interact with other people, my management of stress and personal health, and my very ability to live, travel, and survive in this country and in the world itself, is all based simply and exactly to my being – and remaining – the kind of person that I am and have long been. I’m good with that! Any psychologically and/or emotionally insecure, fearful, and/or intimidated motherfucker who doesn’t like it will simply have to deal with it because the man that I am will not change for their benefit.

The Mid-April Deadline “Sweat Exercise”

RFX-in backyardJust as Star Trek’s James T. Kirk did not believe in a “no-win scenario” (referring to the Kobayashi Maru), so do I not believe in procrastinating in getting my annual tax returns filed. Sure, like many people, I tend to procrastinate with certain tasks. Mainly the reason why I choose to procrastinate is due to my cocky confidence in my ability to get certain tasks done rather easily and in a timely manner. Sometimes I get the task done either the day or the hour before that task is due for completion or reporting. I’m also rather proud of my unique skill to improvise whenever I encounter a problem in completing a procrastinated task. I can’t help but smirk when I learn later that the task which I had finished at “the last-minute” was well-received, well-liked, and much appreciated by others.

Ahhhh….sometimes it’s great to be me!

I tweeted this earlier today  …
RobFather Tweet (13APR2019)1Now, when it comes to doing those accursed annual tax returns (which, like every true-blooded American, I hate doing more than anything), I choose not to procrastinate. It’s been my forty-five-year working citizen experience that regardless of the political party that controls the U.S. government, the damn tax laws – and some of the tax language and meanings on tax forms and tax software, tend to change every year. Even for a non-wealthy single person such as myself, there are often statements and questions on tax filing forms and/or software that can be a head-scratcher!

And so the moment I know that I have all the required forms reflecting my income, deductions, payouts, credits, et al over the previous year (having received all forms either by late January or by the first week in February), I take my first day off work to stay home to complete and file that most hated and completely unnecessary annual report to the U.S. government.
