"Help, I Can't Stop Hooking Up With Trump Supporters"

I'm posting this in other, because I think it's more about human nature than it is about politics. However, if a mod moves it to politics, I'll understand.

Glamour recently posted this article, which is called "Help, I Can't Stop Hooking Up With Trump Supporters." It's about a liberal woman who finds herself attracted to conservative men.

https://www.glamour.com/story/hookin...p-voters-essay

P.J. Media responded with this article:

https://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/2017/0...mp-supporters/

This is my favorite part of the P.J. Media article:

Quote:
Let me explain, dear millennials, why this is happening to you. This is what you've been told you should want.



But this is what you actually want.



No woman wants a man she can push around, walk all over, or beat in an arm-wrestling match. Politics be damned. That's not how biology works. (Now, I realize I may be talking to biology deniers, but you asked "why can't I stop?" and this is why. Biology.) Women are naturally attracted to alpha males and not that gamma guy in a onesie with fragile wrists. The left has emasculated their men to the point of putting them in dresses and sending them into the ladies' room. It's no wonder you need to shop outside your herd. Why the heck wouldn't you?

What do others here think of this?

Has nothing to do with politics, because ATTRACTION IS NOT A CHOICE. It's that fucking simple. Been saying that shit for years.

I'm pretty sure no one has ever asked that, at least using those exact words. Have we had any members with recent head trauma?

I think it's someone else who has preconceived notions, and claims that they're biological facts. He seems to think that humans are a monoculture, like a field of Monsanto potatoes.

Believe it or not, there are dominant women who prefer submissive men.

BTW: That comment about 'fragile wrists' is a reference to the old slur of limp-wristed homosexuals. That gives some idea of how clueless this guy's belief system really is. I know gay men who could kick his ass without breaking a sweat.

Wouldn't it be funny if the manly he-man carrying that poor frail weak helpless woman out of the flood were a homosexual himself?

Awesome trolling there. You're better off doing that in the other thread where it belongs, or did I strike a nerve?

Nothing with me to strike.


Considering just how many times you have asked "Where's Polizei at?" in those threads.

Re: "Help, I Can't Stop Hooking Up With Trump Supporters"

Is she banging the T_D neckbeards as well as the fit blue collar guys?

The left hasn't emasculated men, they're just playing to a large amount of their crowd that like the whole "Acceptance" thing, but that's also what keeps the right from dabbling left. "Manly men vote republican" is the single biggest recruiting call the right has, that's why it was so amusing watching someone like Trump pretend to be manly when he's more a "David Spade in PCU" type.

Well, technically, my source was P.J. Media. I don't normally read Glamour.

Those are great points that you raise. Thanks for doing so.

Yes, it would indeed be funny.

Like when I watch Gilligan's Island and laugh every time Ginger mentions her attraction to Rock Hudson.

I think that Glamour article is a put on. The writer can't be ignorant of the "opposites attract" concept.

What's funny is that a good amount of the "manly men" I know -- pick-up trucks, cowboy hats, and camo -- are the laziest, whiniest, bitches you can imagine. They're also assholes who treat their wives and girlfriends like shit.

But it doesn't keep a lot of women from being attracted to that type.
