Betas Pushing Theory That Insults Them
Despite evidence to the contrary.
Turns out, women actually prefer Betas. I know I do. (Well, I prefer most Betas: the one’s who aren’t complaining about what idiots women are for wanting Alphas.)
Actually, they aren’t always complaining. They are often explaining, matter-of-factly, that women want Alphas because of evolution. Because dominating genes are just better genes, or something.
And sometimes these guys aren’t just telling me. They are adamantly pushing a cause.
I “get” the complaining. Who wants to feel rejected?
But why are they so tied to a theory that puts them down? And that leaves them no hope (in their minds)?
Maybe when you lack hope, giving up removes a burden? You don’t have to do anything?
Or, maybe a sense of superiority arises somehow?
Alphas may be genetically superior, but Betas are kinder and gentler, and better in that way? (Which sounds genetically superior to me.)
Or, women prefer dominating males because men are naturally supposed to dominate. And as males, Betas are part of that dominant class?
I find the attachment to this theory puzzling. If anyone’s got a better guess let me know.
