Even though I know it to be true, I just can't bring myself to treat women like sh*t. Sure, I'll display a sexist attitude once in a while and make some crude jokes about their lady parts, but in the end their sense of comfort is important to me.

And what is up with the last 3 paragraphs on that page?

You can be a confident successful stud of a man and also not be a complete prick.

TFA: Many women will tell you that one of the most irritating things about life is that alpha males - great silverbacked gorilla types - strike us, maddeningly, as being rather more attractive than their kinder, gentler, more considerate dwarf-monkey counterparts.

Is that so? Hope you enjoy your lifetime of being on the wrong side of one-sided relationships there, India Knight. Dumb bint.

FTA: "Now it turns out that the unreconstituted, sexist male chauvinist is not only more attractive to many women, but earns more money and is more professionally successful than the kind man who sympathises when you have period cramps and offers to make you a nice cup of camomile."

If a woman wanted to date a man who acted like a woman, she'd just friggin' date a woman.

Besides, biatches like to have their ass slapped hard when plowed from behind. And Mr. Camomile just won't do that lest he offend her womyn sensibilities.

Women are attracted to men who will give them viable, healthy, successful offspring (whether they intend on having children or not). And what single aspect -- ignoring mating for the moment -- leads most to being able to successfully pass on your genes as a male? Whoever is the biggest, best asshole wins.

If you're an asshole, you'll always do well. That other guy taking up the prime sunning spot on the rock which would make you 5% more happy and therefore efficient collecting food for the rest of the day? Beat him up and push that little biatch of the sunning spot. After all, it's YOURS. If you don't have food, you'll be able to steal it from someone else. Hell, you'll probably hit them over the head with a large rock and eat them. The point is, you're going to survive; therefore, your kid with your asshole genes probably will survive and thrive just like you.

/Only about 70% asshole, personally.

There's a difference between being confident, strong, and successful, and being an unkind prick who hates women deep down.

No woman wants milquetoast, that's true. But you don't have to go to the opposite extreme.
 
2008-09-27 07:30:12 PM  
Is this the thread where we all moan about being nice guys and how women prefer absolute bastards? It's not always true. I'm an asshole (rude, curt, sardonic) and I'm useless with women.

Is the article a confession? Cuz it ain't telling us anything we didn't already know.

You don't have to be sexist to avoid looking like a pansy.
 
2008-09-27 07:32:50 PM  
You can be an Alpha male and not be a total ahole.

Alpha males are confident and sure of themselves. But we can still listen to other people and allow them have their own opinions before we take a shiat in their cornflakes and tell them how worthless they are.

Sorry, I made the same alpha male joke as everyone else, but it's true. In life you have to be a decision maker, NO ONE (not just women) respects a guy who can't make a decision.

Truths in life:

Douchebags get the most pussy.
Regular guys get much less pussy.

Don't try and figure out why, only women know why... just figure out how much of a douchebag or Regular Guy you want to be and go with that. Trying to figure out why this is is akin to beating your head against the wall... you only wind up with a concussion and a flat spot.

There is a difference between being a sexist prick alpha male and a confident alpha male.

However, both are usually perceived to be the same by everyone else, so attempting to explain the differences often comes across like trying to teach Swahili to a redneck.

you dont have to be a douche bag...women want to get farked...hard...on a regular basis. It's that pass the genes thing on, I think. WOmen also prefer to be dominated in the sack, which is also instinctual I believe. The key is communicating these traits to women without having to be an asshole. A single look can do it.

In fairness, guys like sluts, but we don't want a slut for a girlfriend. Kinda the same thing. OK, not really, but I like sluts.

It is exactly thoughts like these that sustain the very phenomenon described: the fallacy that evolutionary psychology is more powerful than our concious ability to make decisions contrary to them.

If everyone collectively believes that there is no way to get rid of it is very likely to be a self-fulfilling prophecy.

FTA: Confusingly, everything we read and observe and are taught shows us that the object of our admiration is to be condemned and that being a victim of sexism is one of the most terrible things that can befall a helpless woman (in fact, it really isn't and we're not helpless: there are many worse things than people making jokes about your bosoms, especially if the jokes are quite funny. If they aren't, we all have a tongue in our head and, if need be, recourse to the law. Part of the problem with all this is the irritating assumption that women are constantly doomed to victimhood and need protecting from the big, mean boys).

When you look at or talk to someone do you ever think, "Gee. I think I'll be attracted to that person. That seems like a good idea." Evolutionary psychology matters on gut feelings more than conscious thought, because gut feelings aren't conscious thought. That's like trying to paint a car red so it'll go faster.

If he is, he's remarkably good at sex with a woman.

Because you think/hope/fantasize that it will lead to rough, up against the wall sex which will give you the excuse to get dirty.

(According to a female friend of mine.)

Ballsiest pickup line of the week:

Friend: I like your hair (to pre-cougar)

Mark: Thanks (clearly bemused)

Friend: [continuing] how often do you have to color it?

Mark: [instant interest]
