Hump Day (Is For Chumps) - Fitness Tests

.
.
You're Such a Tool -- No Ma'am - Think of a man as a stick in a woman's hand - a tool which she uses for her own purposes. The woman with the biggest stick will fare better in society than women with smaller sticks - or especially women with no sticks at all. This is a further reason for women to give men fitness tests - to test how strong of a stick he is. If she finds him sufficiently strong, she will begin to conform herself around him, creating the illusion that she is his ideal mate so that he will begin to fall in love with her and thus become useful to her as a "tool."
.
You Mean Nothing to a Woman Until You Have Sex -- Bonecrker - A woman decides within seconds if she wants a man or not, and then immediately tests him to see if he is important enough and in demand enough to not have to chase her. Almost anything he does to pursue her, please her, or try to get close to her makes his value drop.
.
Shit Tests vs. Psychotic Raving Lunatic Tests -- Bonecrker - All women test, that’s a fact of life. They want to know the steel content of your balls. To pass the test, your response needs to be some version of, I’m going to do whatever I choose to do, whether you like it or not, and for no better reason than I want to…..and if you don’t like it, you can just leave because, quite frankly, there are other women waiting for me to get rid of you so they can have a turn.
.
The Threat -- Rational Male - Women’s shit testing is a psychologically evolved, hard-wired survival mechanism. Women will shit test men as autonomously and subconsciously as a men will stare at a woman’s big boobs. They cannot help it, and often enough, just like men staring at a nice rack or a great ass, even when they’re aware of doing it they’ll still do it. Men want to verify sexual availability to the same degree women want to verify a masculine dominance / confidence.
.
In the Battle of the Sexes, If She Wins, She Loses -- Philalethes - The encounter of the sexes is not, in Mao’s words, “a dinner party.” It’s serious business, the origin of birth and death, a dance of creation/destruction between the two most dangerous predators on the planet. “How do porcupines mate? Very carefully.” It’s like sparring partners in a martial art: we keep each other strong, healthy, alert, we teach each other and check each other’s excesses. In order for it to work, we need each other whole.

"[Regarding elephant seal mating behavior, where females will copulate with lesser males, then 'bawl out' so  dominant males will come to chase the lesser male away and establish his dominance by mating with her afterwards] Recently these "protests" have been studied intensively by Cathleen Cox and Burney J. Le Boeuf. They found that males mounting estrous females are more than twice as likely to be driven away by other males when the female protests than when she remains silent. Thus the picture that emerges is that the females have a substantial degree of control over the fertilization process, and that they use this control, at least in part, to play males off against each other.

Why do they do this, if they do? What could be the point? Perhaps the single observation that can be made about the range of ways one male is chosen out of the many that are called is that physical exertion is almost always involved, or demanded. It might be that the female is interposing a test that prevents her mating with gross misfits, from pairing her genes with genes that are defective. 


The case that fits this suggestion best is male competition among those creatures in which the males have only one gene set instead of the usual two. A male of such a species has only one source of genetic information. If one of his genes is defective he must rely on it, use it, and express it, regardless. Mating among the social insects - a prime example of these one-gene-set males - is just as strenuous as among the larger-bodied species we have been reviewing. In some cases a queen flies to great heights so that only the fastest, highest-flying males can reach her; in others she might crawl along the ground, requiring the males to search for her over periods of as long as several weeks."" -- Fred Hapgood, Why Males Exist; An Inquiry Into The Evolution Of Sex, William Morrow and Company, Inc.
