"As OK Cupid has demonstrated, women rate 80 percent of men below average."

Vox at Alpha Game Plan: "Don't listen to female advice on dating":

It cannot be stressed enough that female dating advice is aimed at ALPHAS and concerns how women wish ALPHAS would behave. It isn't aimed at the majority of men, because to women, the majority of men simply don't figure into their calculations at all. As OK Cupid has demonstrated, women rate 80 percent of men below average.

"Females of OkCupid, we site founders say to you: ouch! Paradoxically, it seems it’s women, not men, who have unrealistic standards for the “average” member of the opposite sex."

This is why all of the myths so cherished by deltas and gammas are precisely that, myths. Women aren't attracted to a man who is a gentleman, they are attracted to an Alpha and they would like him to behave like a gentleman.

"It’s not how much money you have, or looks, or power, its PRESENCE.."

I read an article this morning (via Instapundit) entitled "18 Things Men Need To Know That Women Won’t Tell Them." The Your Tango expert article is written by Deanna Frazier, the author of Dating 101: The Second, Third, or Fourth Time Around. She states that "It’s not how much money you have, or looks, or power, its PRESENCE.."

Really? Then why is all the advice given about how to improve your looks, confidence (which on some level gives the illusion of power), and money, because without it, you can't hire the coaches, and buy the manicures and hand lotions you need to impress the women.

Let's take a look at her advice on how to improve your luck with the ladies. First up:
It truly doesn't matter how much money you make, whether or not you’re overweight, walk with a limp or are going bald. Many wonderful women would love to have you in their lives.

If this is true, why are there so many balding, overweight broke guys out there who can't get a date? Why are most women fighting over the "alpha males" while leaving the rest home playing video games if they really wanted the bald and broke? If these guys had the "presence," outlined in the article, would they get a date? Somehow, I doubt it.

"Presence" seems to be obtained by looking good with expensive haircuts, manicures and lotions. The right haircut will impress as "the look of money or prosperity comes from shiny, healthy well-trimmed ends and natural looking color" (#9). If women aren't impressed by money, then why is the author telling men to have expensive looking hair that "looks like money." I thought money didn't matter. I'm confused, are you?

And men aren't even supposed to look like men. They should not be wearing plaid or flannel shirts (#10) and if they mow the lawn, they shouldn't let anyone know it. Cover it with a manicure or hand lotion (#13 and #14).

If any male reader out there has gotten a date by walking up to a woman and saying "You look very elegant and sophisticated" (#18), while sporting hand lotion, a manicure, and a non-interrupting style while she talks (#3), let us know. Perhaps I'm missing something here.

"No one asked questions when her last husband died."

I was reading the Washington Examiner in DC this morning and saw a story about a woman who left five dead husbands in five different states over decades. I looked the story up online and found this story about her case:

To the outside world, Betty Neumar was a diminutive Georgia grandmother with a shock of white hair who operated beauty shops, attended church and raised money for charity. No one asked questions when her last husband died.

It wasn't until North Carolina investigators in 2008 reopened a 25-year-old murder case that the dark secrets of her past began to unravel. Police discovered that Neumar had left behind a decades-long trail of five dead husbands in five states.

Authorities in the story didn't seem to try too hard to catch this woman or look too deeply into the "suicides" of two of the husbands or her son who she collected insurance money off of. Apparently this woman isolated the men from their families and no one seemed to care much.

I wonder how many murdered men have been unaccounted for in the crime statistics. As Warren Farrell points out in his book The Myth of Male Power,

How about the perils of too much estrogen in the room?

ABC's This Week with Christiane Amanpour had a ridiculously sexist exchange this week with an Economy panel suggesting that women are superior to men in politics and business (thanks to the reader who emailed this story):

AMANPOUR: And, no, they don't. You'd be hard-pressed to find a sex scandal involving a female politician these days, which begs the question, what if there were more women in politics and in positions of power? Would they change the way business is done from Wall Street to Washington and beyond?

We decided to explore that issue this morning with Torie Clarke, the former assistant secretary of defense for public affairs in the Bush administration, with Cecilia Attias, the former first lady of France who was married to president Nicolas Sarkozy, and she is the founder of Cecilia Attias Foundation for Women, and ABC's Claire Shipman, author of "Womenomics: Write Your Own Rules for Success."

Can you imagine if a bunch of couple of male panelists were talking about "the perils of too much estrogen in the room?" This exchange is sexist and inaccurate. If you want my further thoughts on what would happen if women ran the world, you can read an old PJM article of mine here.
