So If you feel hopeless and that life has stacked the odds against you, produce a lot of offspring to increase the odds that at least one of them will make it out.

It's called slumming. And it's awesome.

They are NOT money grubbing succubus. They are more sincerely attracted to a 'self made man' who's 'financially secure with himself' and can 'provide her the life she's always known she deserves'. So you see - there's a difference. Of course, when your only functing organ is your uterus, the options narrow...

Well, if you're a rich girl and you go too far, well you know it don't matter anyway.

More likely to get pregnant (in particular) where there's a wide income disparity, presumably because it creates more of an atmosphere of despair and hopelessness.

I don't think it's even that complicated. Being attracted to traits that are indicative of success, whatever those traits are, seems to be ingrained in pretty much all sexual species. It doesn't mean that he'll take care of her, or even that the result of a successful breeding will yield a successful offspring. Animals, without such convoluted social customs as humans have probably do find more successful offspring from successful parents, but the nature of success for us is more complicated than that.

It's more likely that the successful individual find himself or herself surrounded by more possible mates because success attracts mates, regardless of the success or social status of the mates. So, while there are more poor women willing to put out, that's only because there are more women in general willing to put out to the successful man. On top of that, they're attracted to him to have sex with him, not with the intention of making babies with him. That is the neat trick that sexual reproduction plays on everyone- babies are difficult, so we trick ourselves and each other with hormones and pheromones to have it happen anyway.

bobbette: That's not what the article reads - it reads that poor girls are more likely to get pregnant.


Wow your reading comprehension needs some improving. This is in fact NOT what the article states at all. It shows that if you are poor you are no more or less likely to have a teen pregnancy then if you were rich, when you are surrounded by people of your same class. So if you live in a slum, then there will be no more teen pregnancy than if you lived in a rich community.

The increase is shown when there is income inequality. You are poor and you go to school with rich kids, opposed to poor and going to school with other poor.

hmm... I wonder if you know any religious chicks. some go for anal because they think that it does not break their chastity or virginity.

/ plus, since they're not allowed condoms or birth control, it's pretty much the only impregnable way to do anything

Strange as this sounds, you put it more eloquently than E.L. Doctorow did in his novel Billy Bathgate.

2012-05-21 10:12:54 AM  
I'm pretty sure it's been this way since the dawn of civilization. Back then the whole reason to have material wealth was to spread your genetic material as far and wide as possible and then support the offspring to maturity. The mindset has pretty much stuck with us all the while.

Poor beautiful girls are more likely to get pregnant.

I think the most beautiful yet sad thing in the world is that in countries like Dominican Republic/Columbia/Brazil you have these women who live in poverty yet at the same time look hot as hell.

And because of that poverty they aren't caught up in their "looks" per say, but are more concerned about survival.
 
2012-05-21 10:19:21 AM  
Poor girls get pregnant more often in environments of economic disparity because rich guys think it's ok to date rape the poor girls because her dad's not a lawyer and she'll prob just end up having it vacuumed out at planned parenthood anyway.

Isn't that what planned parenthood is for?

You seemed to miss the Roman Catholic exception I added just for this (isn't that how Taylor Rain got into anal sex btw? didn't want to be "too bad" so she "cheated", then said "hell with this" and became one of the first dirtiest of the dirty style adult film stars). Admittedly I've never found a fundy protestant chick (including Lutherans, for some reason) who weren't anything but dead fish in bed, maybe that's affecting my posting.

Because choosing for just one trait allows assholes to reproduce.

"Going to school with rich kids" isn't how income inequality is measured. Measures of income inequality are applied to society as a whole. Although, in that extremely idiotic fashion you did manage to inadvertently bring up that not merely income inequality but educational quality/opportunity plays a role. Which is also not "going to school with rich kids", by the way; it reflects how young women see their futures and social roles, generally.

Yeah, but by then, they're 35. The nerds have money, and thus, younger women. And the cycle of life is complete.

I've heard it can come as soon as about 22 for women in college, who see men in technical fields of study getting job offers as opposed to having to hunt for work once their sports scholarships run out, and seeing those offers coming from big companies that the women have actually heard of.

That said, being the unkempt nerd with grooming problems who doesn't know about anything besides technology and fandom doesn't get offset by job prospects for most eligible women.
