Ask DB1: Blaming the Bleeth?


—-
Dear DB1,

I’ve been on the site for about a year now…and a question keeps bothering me.

1) If you accept the proposition that women make the ultimate decision who and what they will have sex with. (They are the deciders.)

2) All human males since the genus homo erectus will do just about anything to get into a woman’s pants (gaybags excluded).

3) Doing such requires women to first notice said male.

4) Males must thus act and appear in ways which appeal to said females

The inescapable conclusion is: far from being the Fair Maiden Bleeth’s that you feel sworn to protect…the women on your site are actually the cause for all douchebaggery and uber-scrote-i-tude in the world.

Aren’t the men but pawns and puppets of the Machiavellian conspiracy to demean them brought about by duplicitous women seeking the finding of suitable mates by subjecting them to humiliation as some sort of breeding/culling-of-the-herd exercise?

What say you this, DB1?

This theory presumes individuals acting with independent agency outside of the cultural latticework of social meaning. Market based “product,” brand name as sexual signifier, does not exist without generating cultural capital, as Bourdieu might argue.

Neither the hotts nor the douchebags are individually to blame for this circulation of Ed-Hardyesque craptastic cultural disgrace. Therefore, we mock them for their douchey ways as a form of collective response. By rendering this framework visible here at HCwDB, we challenge hierarchy. For when the overpriced product is marked as ludicrous rather than sexually validating, systemic poo will be flushed.

We must locate the cycle of hottie/douchey reinforcement not at the individual level, but as a broader series of social currency exchanges by which the act of sexual selection is informed by the market system.
