Duel loyalties

This is basically “Judy’s Turn to Cry” boiled down to 140 characters or less:

March 2017 tweet by @5iine, on the subject of fidelity or lack thereof

“I’m so glad I’m not in the dating market any more,” says Peter Grant. I can’t say as I blame him. And I checked: that Twitter account is suspended, though I have no idea why.

    People ask me why I’m still single.

    They haven’t seen the dating market these days or they’d know the answer to that.

    I think it’s time for me to get seven cats and stop combing my hair.

    This girl was born into the wrong species. If she were a cat, it would be expected that the guys would just fight over her.

    I’ve just started a fascinating book called “The Evolution of Beauty”, by Richard Prum. He discusses the long-running debate, over how much evolution is influenced by survival pressure, vs. aesthetic selection, which may or may not lead to actual improved survival of the species. Apparently, many scientists cannot accept the fact that animals might be as silly as humans, and choose looks over other more valuable attributes.

    Excerpt: “Such is the instability of vicious feminine caprice that no constancy of coloration could be produced by its selective action,” wrote St. George Jackson Mivart, an English biologist who was at first a great supporter and later a critic of natural selection.

    Yikes….”vicious”? I think this scientist had issues.

    She would have hated my generation too, and my parents’, for pretty much the same reason.

    Yet, when it is the man who’ve cheated, his woman is universally praised for “staying by”…

    Yes, ETat – Hillary was pilloried for standing by Bill.

    No, Roger, she was not standing by Bill. She was/is despised for staying in failed marriage riage for material gain. She is a power-and-money-hungry hyena – and that is repellent in any gender.
