Dissecting “Jenny Parker”: Asshole Revisited
In response to my recent article on the female draw to assholes, I received the following:

“You are a sad pygmy with no clue how to score a lady without first heavily tranquilizing her with roofies or whatever other date-rape drug is at hand. Take your dated, cheesy, steroid infused bullshit and shove it up your shriveled hard-on.”
Now, while this message is really nothing more than a sudden emotional burst of reflexive ad hominem (indicating that I hit a nerve), I feel an inherent need to dissect the woefully misguided conceptions behind her commentary. Why? So that simple-minded crackpots will, in the future, refrain from tainting my omnipotent website with overly clichéd, insecure, hopelessly stupid bullshit. Shall we begin…”You are a sad pygmy” The sort of woman who says this is one who’s attempting to expose insecurity. “If he’s that big, he must be incredibly short, which means that he’s compensating, which means that he has a Napoleon complex. And that’s “sad.” LOL. Remedial psych. And, no, kiddo, I’m 5’9”, I’ve never wished I were taller, and I’m not at all sad. In fact, nothing makes me happier than setting the record straight in the face of absolute ignorance. Which brings me to: “no clue how to score a lady without first heavily tranquilizing her with roofies or whatever other date-rape drug is at hand.” This is utterly psychotic. It’s also a truly depressing attempt to demonize me, which is likely because I – to her – represent everything that is wrong with men. The problem is this: In my “Why Women Like Assholes” piece, I merely said that women do, in fact, like them because A) It’s biological/evolutionary, and B) For the sake of adventure. I described the reality for many women. I am not, however, condoning abuse in any way, and jumping to the conclusion that I am the sort of person who would date rape women is sick, insane, and beyond pathetic. When I encourage men to adopt assholish behavior, I say that because that’s what attracts many women to many men. I’m not encouraging physical or verbal abuse. I am saying that a man is more likely to hook a woman if he practices the behavior of a modern day asshole alpha (rudeness and flexing never hurt anybody). Hell, I love and respect women (except for ignorant, Sex ‘n The City-type sluts), but the truth is the truth. Moving on…”Take your dated, steroid infused bullshit and shove it up your shriveled hard-on.” – Point 1) The truth is never dated. 2) “Steroid infused” is merely your way of trying to demean my commentary via implying that what I say is emotionally-addled, roid-rage ranting. But these words are calm, cool, collected, and purely logical – the polar opposite of your simplistic, emotional outburst, which makes you seem like a silly, child-like hypocrite. As for shoving bullshit up my shriveled hard-on (poor taste, sweetheart), can you please provide me with some edification on how one stuffs anything up a hard-on? I don’t quite understand the mechanics of that. Now….SHUT UP AND LISTEN TO JON.
