A study at Coventry and Aberystwyth universities in the United Kingdom, published in Feminist Media Studies in August, drew a completely unremarkable conclusion; women (and gay men) are attracted to men with muscles and money.
That this has been true throughout human history appears to have escaped the feminist researchers. And therein lies the real story. The feminists believe that women should be attracted to emotionally engaged men who may be awkward around women but exhibit the politically correct attitude.
The “guy candy” posted on the website were mostly white men – despite London being a multicultural city – indicating that white male privilege is still an attractive quality.
No, it doesn’t. What it indicates is that the people snapping the pictures of mostly white men were probably white themselves, since race plays a significant role in sexual attraction.
The photos and comments focused on the men’s biceps, pecs and chest as well as perceived sexual ability. Items that indicated wealth such as smart suits, watches and phones were emphasized. Pictures showing other representations of masculinity, such as fatherhood, and more emotional and awkward-appearing men were far less frequent.
“This celebration of masculine capital is achieved through humor and the knowing wink, but the outcome is a reaffirmation of men’s position in society,” lead author Adrienne Evans from the Coventry University’s Centre for Postdigital Cultures said in a statement. The problem, according to Evans, is that “although it appears as though we have moved forward, our desires are still mostly about money and strength.”
The feminists believe that sexual attraction should be an adaptive behavior, not instinctual. The millions of years of human evolution that has created numerous nonverbal and subconscious signals being given to males by women – and the subsequent nonverbal and subconscious signals returned by the males – doesn’t appear to matter. Women should be able to overcome this politically incorrect view of men and consciously become attracted to metrosexual male feminists or whatever the feminist ideal of men is.post was originally published on this site
