This Place Just Doesn't Die

The only people who have a problem with boobs are:

- Less attractive insecure women who are jealous.

- Beta males, who are trying to impress those women by grandstanding / virtue signalling.

Any problem with boobs, or women breast feeding is simply women using social norms to attempt to increase their chances of reproduction by ostracizing women who are "Too attractive". Shame is one of the most fundamental tools of women.

Basic evolutionary biology. 1) Men create competitive hierarchies (which opens up fame and resources), 2) women maximize their chances for successful offspring by selecting men from the top of these hierarchies with maximal resources. Women manipulate the social order around them in order to maximize their chances. Women don't know what a absolute "good mate" is, but they know when they see a man whose is "Better than the ones around him." (Girls also practice ostracizing "unfit" females from the group in highschool and being ostracized from a social group is viewed almost like a death sentence in a girls mind.)

Once you know those two facts, 99% of human subconscious falls into place. Why men love to compete and take it seriously. Why we watch MEN'S sports while women's sports isn't popular. Why women sue rich ex-husbands for half-a-million a MONTH in "Child support" (=maximize resources) even if the man was rich before she ever showed up.

And why men compete on EVERYTHING. Race you to school. Race our crappy first cars. Compete with CARD GAMES. Compete on video games. Compete on who can sh!t talk the best and "put down" the other person. Rap battles which are basically a sport version of sh!t talking. Everything is about establishing an order.

Sorry, that went a bit into a rant. But it really is eye-opening once I read a research paper (as opposed to B.S. "popular science" rags that only tell you what's clickbait and subject to their narrative.)

Another fun thing is, in evolution, there are "sneaky males." Males who will "emulate the characteristics of females" in order to access female-only spaces (::cough:: feminism ::cough::) in order to have a chance to copulate with females without the males seeing them as a threat.

(Fun fact: When I was in a fraternity for a while, we never had problems with the "jock" guys. It was always the "Beta" males who would try and take pictures of, or cop a feel from a passed out drunk girl. Any time we caught a guy doing that, it was hell to pay. I wonder if beta males are more likely to "steal" sex than alphas, because alphas know they can get sex without resorting to trickery or crime. It certainly occurs in the animal kingdom, with beta males appearing as female to bypass males, and then darting in to fertilize fish eggs.)

[edit] Also, kind of like how so many women hate porn. Porn is seen as competition. "How could I compete with these beautiful women!?" so they use shame (negative social status) to "outlaw" it. Meanwhile, men have an instinct to copulate with multiple women to increase their lineage, and porn fulfills that impulse.

The Free the Nipple campaign is a hilariously ignorant campaign. I recall when a woman set up a topless parade for it, can't recall the city, but after it was over she was pissed because men were being men and enjoying the view. Guess she was single to where she forgot what turns men on.

I never used to be a boob man until I got a girlfriend. >:( Now I love boobs, but I'm still all about dat ass. Boobs come in all shapes and sizes. Like Ron White (comedian) said, "Once you've seen one woman naked you want to see the rest of them naked."

Good post, Chris. I agree wholeheartedly.

Append:

I think we can all agree that if it is acceptable for women to be topless in public then it should be acceptable for men (and boys) to stare at their tits. :D

Only as much as it's acceptable to stare at someone's face - which it isn't if they start to behave as if they don't like it... ;)

That's not entirely true. Looking somebody directly in the eye generally sends a very direct message in most cultures. It is nowhere near the same as staring at their belly button, or their foot, or their arm. It would depend I guess on where exactly on their face you were staring. Probably it would be perfectly tolerated to stare at somebody's lips, for example. Or ears. Or cheeks. You might make them self-conscious, but it would not be considered inappropriate to do so.

Some people stare at your forehead when you talk to them. Just end abruptly your sentence and say "My God! You can see my third eye?"

Plant a thread about long lost good times, water it, and a month later, it grows into a thread about breasts. Now I'm starting to regret all the time lost.

Anyone remember JaTeR? He used that sequence here (first one I found - I'm sure it was his thing and it occurred a few times). He has an interesting bio as CGamesPlay discovered here. Also, enjoy his avatar ;)

I never realized there was a ten-emoticon[1] limit.

  1. I also realize using the term "emoticon" dates me.

I remember the arguments of whether they were emoticons or smileys (Yahoo messenger days) which was retarded since :( is obviously not a smile. I view emoticons and emojis to be completely different because you usually think of different icons when you hear them.

I hear emoticons and I think :) :( ;) :-/ :P etc.
I hear emojis and think pizza icon, eggplant icon, soda icon, the shit icon, etc.

Hmm, Windows 7 doesn't support the soda one.

Febreze (and other air fresheners actually) is just below perfumes/colognes, and that's just below dead skunks in terms of smells that offend my nose.

Neither does Windows 10, but I guess it will be added in the update that's coming in a couple of months.

I remember using emotes before the internet existed. Good old BBS days when :-) was all we needed.

Oh, if you check out the old C64 game M.U.L.E. You will see an emote on it on the top of one of the screens that looks like :8^) I believe (eyebrows, eyes, nose and mouth) which I thought was amusing at the time.

I still rarely see an emoticon for XD There needs to be one! ;)
