Chicks dig assholes. This is known. But explaining it in terms of evopsych has been a shaky proposition so far.
I believe it can be explained by the extreme selective effects of slavery in human history. Women hate enslaved men because for thousands of years there has been no quicker route to genetic extinction than bearing the child of a fellow slave. This explains the disgust women feel toward submissive male behaviors.
In contrast, women love the signals given off by known classes of non-slaves, particularly the masters, overseers, whip-hands, and occasionally free men. The successful slave women of history would have desperately tried to get such a man to fall in love with her in order to escape the meatgrinder of general work detail. Therefore, a man who wishes to deceitfully signal high-status ought to act and dress like a slave owner, slave trader, or slave breaker. (Generally speaking, the fraction of free men in historical societies has been vanishingly small.)
Civilization is an abstract sort of slavery, where men are domesticated by abstract forms of control like the state monopoly on violence and replacement immigration. It follows that women are generally disgusted by civilized, prosocial men, otherwise known as “nice guys” or “suckers”, and prefer self-interested men.
nice (adj.) Look up nice at Dictionary.com
late 13c., “foolish, stupid, senseless,” from Old French nice (12c.) “careless, clumsy; weak; poor, needy; simple, stupid, silly, foolish,” from Latin nescius “ignorant, unaware,” literally “not-knowing,” from ne- “not” (see un-) + stem of scire “to know” (see science). “The sense development has been extraordinary, even for an adj.” [Weekley] — from “timid” (pre-1300); to “fussy, fastidious” (late 14c.); to “dainty, delicate” (c. 1400); to “precise, careful” (1500s, preserved in such terms as a nice distinction and nice and early); to “agreeable, delightful” (1769); to “kind, thoughtful” (1830).
Particularly, women lust for criminals on the high and low ends. This mirrors Solzhenitsyn’s observation that politicians have some admiration for gangsters but treat their subjects are subhumans and beasts of burden, lower than pets.
As I’ve stated several times before, the most important truth of political science is that slaves demographically replace their masters. Sure, Napoleon might be one of your ancestors, but 99% of the rest were effectively chattel. A bonus takeaway is that cuckolding is a far worse crime than rape.
A modified version of this theory is necessary to account for nice societies like Germany, where the selection penalty for being nice has been effectively removed. However, as the sexual aspect of the immigration crisis has shown us, the female lust for non-nice men has not been bred out of them, it has merely been repressed by k-selected societal cohesion and a lack of opportunity to cheat. It’s precisely because the immigrants are conceived of as uncivilized that they are “sexy” in comparison to German men.
