I think the answer is

Adamant

My infix is who you are

Man - General word to represent a human being.

Original answer Am - First person singular of the verb to be, e.g, "I am".

My prefix is my infix's alpha

Adam - from the Bible, first man (alpha male) created by God.

My suffix is a short little insect

Ant

And me you shall not dissect!

Adamant - a legendary rock or mineral (think of Wolverine's adamantium).

Title

The author appears to be adamant in their assertion. Also, adamant translates from Greek via Latin as "not to be tamed" which could tie in with the wording of the title
