Merry Christmas, everyone. This year we celebrate a lot of things. The birth of Christ, friends, family, childlike wonder, and now we can add the fact that the “woke” crowd is proved to be subject to the same urges and standards despite complete denials of reality and foaming at the mouth hatred for them.
According to Psychology Today, a couple scientists did some tests about women and why they can’t seem to get on board with the “woke” mentality of the social justice crowd when it comes to how men should behave and what kind of behavior women prefer.
The scientists, Pelin Gul and Tom Kupfer attempted to find out what the deal was with women’s preference for the “bad boy,” alpha male mentality over the men who claim to respect and cherish women to the point of worship. What they found, according to Psychology Today, should surprise no one:
Gul and Kupfer used several different related experiments in order to test why women find men with these types of beliefs to be more sexy and appealing. They found that women who saw these types of men as more attractive also saw the men as being more willing to protect and care for them, and to commit to a relationship. Interestingly though, these women weren’t love-struck fools, but had their eyes open about these men. Despite being attracted to them, and seeing them as good mates and partners, the women saw these males as being undermining and patronizing men who were more likely to place restrictions on the women.
The best part? It didn’t matter the ideological makeup of the person. Feminists were just as likely as every other woman to prefer the sexist male as a romantic partner over her woke male counterpart:
Gul and Kupfer conducted several separate experiments, showing that their results did replicate in different samples and using different methods (an important strategy in today’s replication crisis), and that the effect was apparent both potential mates, AND in work colleagues. Even in men who were not being scoped out as potential intimate partners, women were more likely to see sexist men as more attractive. Women who were both more and less feminist displayed similar levels of attraction to sexist men, so this effect isn’t the result of women not being “woke” enough.
To cap it off, the author of the Psychology Today piece had an interesting message seemingly directed straight at the social justice and feminist crowds:
Women who find sexist men attractive are not being traitors to other women, nor are they naïve women who don’t understand their choices. Instead, they are women who are making rational decisions, accepting tradeoffs. They are women who recognize that it may be more beneficial to have a partner who is committed to them and willing to sacrifice for them and their family, than it is to have a “woke” feminist man who wants them to be independent.
So wouldn’t you know it, the beta males that the feminists are trying to craft out of men aren’t being crafted in order to make suitable mates for themselves, as many men who sign on to the “woke” way of doing things likely hope. Instead, it’s still the self-confident, “sexist” male who maintains a sense of that good ol’ fashioned head-of-the-household mentality that women prefer.
This is such a great gift ahead of Christmas that I’m starting to believe in Santa again.
