This is going to be controversial.
Let's start with some basic truths.
- Women are the "choosers" - men compete to get chosen.
- Women are more likely to reproduce than men are, historically.
- Women are hypergamous, and when it comes to genetics want a man who is taller, more fit, etc.
Here is my theory:
Less genetically blessed women will have the ability to choose from among men genetically superior to herself. But, she will never exceed her own genetic limitations by very much. It could well be a law of averages situation, or simply her attempting to compensate for her own genetic shortcomings. We've heard it before because it's very common with short women, as an example:
"Being 5-0" tall, I only date guys 6-4" and taller because I don't want short kids."
And what are her ODDS of transcending her 'short gene' and having kids taller than herself? 50% perhaps? Short daughters who will have no trouble finding partners because they are short, and short sons who will have quite a big challenge ahead of them especially if they are closer to 5-0" than 6-0" tall.
And here is the big difference between men and women when it comes to genetics:
If a man is rejected, they say "Good, we don't want his genes in the gene pool."
But what about hers? Why is that it is perfectly okay for the male sex drive to allow genetically inferior women to get a chance reproduce?
Is it not ironic that women sneer at men they find sexually unqualified while in many cases they themselves would be sexually unqualified if held to the same standards? (Height, facial symmetry, weight, fitness, fat distribution etc.)
Here is the system today.
- Men want sex more than women.
- More women than men will reproduce.
- Her efforts to "mate up" genetically have limitations.
Why is the system this way? It must work, else nature would have not have made it this way. Is the "men want sex more" imbalance necessary? Do women need to struggle to get high value partners, and men need to struggle to get any partner at all for this to work?
And since 6-4" tall Basketball Joe is dating 5-0" tall girl, why doesn't he ask himself if he's going to be okay with a much shorter son? Wouldn't he want to try and get with a woman of average or above average height for better odds of passing on the tall gene? Or is he thinking, on a primal level, that so long as he is chosen by some woman, his genetic work is done?
Can such a discussion happen without going down the rabbit hole into eugenics?
Or, is asking such a question really speaking about eugenics outright?
