When catastrophe strikes (the farm) people disperse like sheep, then coalesce again around a leader, looking for a world that’s about more than just surviving.  But when they’re safe they either swear allegiance or turn on him,  and apparently this depends entirely on whether you are a male or female.  Get that straight, betas, if you show any weakness women will instantly sleep with your best friend or abandon you for the next runner up; which is why such shows and movies are always from one perspective, i.e. not, “why would the women want to turn on him?” but “what should a man do when the crazy bitches turn on him?”– the answer evidently being: get tough and declare this isn’t a democracy.

This depiction of post-apocalyptic reality does reveal what constitutes men’s secret anxiety, that since women (partial object) are simplistic and not well defined, then they will abandon you for the most simplistic of reasons. Which is why the show tells you a heck of a lot more about why Shane turned on Rick than why the women turned on Rick: women, like dogs, can only be trusted if they’re well fed and with a master who has a strong hand.

And yet still they do not call them zombies.

    you contradict yourself. what about what you said in your Louis post about a woman being turned off by Louis’ hesitance? so how facetious could you really be when you compared them to dogs?

      You read it wrong. TLP specifically says that while Louie gets men right, it gets women wrong. The whole point of that post was to say that it’s wrong that the woman confesses that somehow her primal feelings of disgust towards betas welled up unbidden even though she rationally knows Louie did the “right thing”. In fact, a woman already knows whether you would react to the punk aggressively or submissively. She is with you despite, or because of, that knowledge. The stupidity is assuming that she doesn’t already know that, and trying to fool her by displaying the opposite identity (in Louie’s case, by shouting at the kids in the first place).
