A sort of side-point that I thought was worth emphasizing.
Mrs. Hoyt, speaking on the whole “Alpha, Beta, Omega” theme of pick-up artists.
For them learning to emulate an alpha male works. Because human mating instinct hasn’t quite caught up with civilization and women more willing to go with irrational choices will prefer alpha males or those who can fake it. That’s valid. Of course you’re appealing mostly to women who prefer not to think, even if they can.
Kind of like watching Idiocracy and accepting that the the really intelligent people are the ones who can’t manage to reproduce at all; if that’s your high point, you’ve got a problem.
