Yes, because when a woman is irritated at some dolt dismissing any possibility of her having a career other than being a Hollywood pin-up babe on the sole basis of her aesthetics, she’s obviously just flattered. And hiding it. Underneath her venting. For some reason.I have absolutely no doubt it doesn't. Because like most gammas, the poor lad thinks that women essentially think like men, except of course for their greater purity of character. He simply cannot fathom that women view everything through the perspective of their own sexual market value. Steve Sailer provides an excellent example of this in a different field in Sailer's Law of Female Journalism, which states that the issue that will tend to most passionately engage non-self-aware female journalists is that society should be turned upside down so that she, personally, would be considered hotter-looking.
Vox must be just incredibly in-tune with the female mind, because that makes absolutely no sense to me.
Okay, now I get it, it's a double bankshot version of Sailer's Law. The problem with casting a 28-year-old actress opposite 40-year-old Ewan McGregor is that audiences will assume the beautiful 28-year-old is actually a beautiful 40-year-old, which will make the 33-year-old Marcotte seem less hot in comparison. I strongly doubt that audiences will do any such thing, but to alleviate Marcotte's worries, I propose:Unfortunately, getting a gamma to accept the reality of Game is about as hard as convincing an atheist that God really does exist. It can be done, it HAS been done, but because it requires such a complete upheaval of not only their worldview, but very self-identification, in most cases there isn't much you can usefully do besides laugh at them as they continue to push on the door marked "Pull".
Memo to Hollywood: the surest way to ease Armanda Marcotte's concerns that the women in movies are hotter than she is would be to cast Armanda Marcotte as the sexy lead in all your 2012 releases. Is that too much to ask?
