So here comes the latest pop psychology, the extraordinary, ultimate authority “science” says not to date muscular men, but their alternative, scrawny men. Why? Because a correlation between muscularity and sexism, from an uncited study, claims so. First off, the strength of the correlation is not shared. This could be a very weak correlation, meaning that plenty of feminist muscular men exist, but are not as common as their sexist muscular counter-parts. Of course, the article doesn’t explain that.
What this article actually does, is lure people to the site it’s from. What better way to increase the amount of views you get, than by providing evidence and tips to women on finding the perfect mate, under the authority of science. People invest heavily into mating, and will dig heavily into anything they think will help increase their success. This is the reason the cosmetics industry is so large, miracle “pheromone” products exist, and why Cosmo is so popular. Unfortunately, the sham is realized when what science (or logic) actually says, and what this author says, are completely different.
What women should actually date, are quality guys. You don’t judge quality on muscle mass, you communicate, and investigate, and seek to find out the good and bad qualities of an individual. Using a correlation read online from an uncited source doesn’t make you more likely to find a better mate, it makes you ignorant, lazy, and more likely to end up in failed relationships.
