quick thought

a girl on tinder flaunting that she’s available but WONT sleep with YOU cause she’s out of your league. man takes that as a slight and wants to reassert his worth by taking her down a peg. sending something aggressive and objectifying. what is that imperative? I am admitting that i thought about wanting to take down what you can’t have, like a tiger… what, stalking and catching? idk why i imagined oh- wait its p much gone. anyways, i thought of like, what if in “ancestral times” men chased and caught and raped women as default and that’s that imperative. i forgot the little connection in between. something along the notion of “taming the wild beast” being something primal…

okay. so buss and baumeister are rooting in sexual economics as their social theory to why our brains would do things like rape.
