"The less fortunate girls who grow up without a father figure in their lives often go into the adult world with a specific set of psychological wounds that can create some serious struggles in their lives: depression, promiscuity, failed relationships, addiction."
That quote above? I was one time involved with a woman like that - for about two weeks. On the surface they are funny and charming. What they are disguising are those four disturbed traits listed.
I'll say one thing about depression before I go any further: sometimes it doesn't mean feeling bad. It can mean feeling little or nothing. I was told that by a therapist I was interviewing when I was a newspaper reporter.
One of the delusions in some parts of the Manosphere is that "chicks dig jerks" and if you exhibit the Dark Triad they'll automatically, irresistibly be attracted to you.
I was raised in a pretty awful area (murders, rapes, suicides, fatal drug overdoses, a serial killer), and have met several of the kinds of women who get attached to "bad boys." I have never been impressed by them. Not once.
I also know what the Dark Triad means in real life and not theory, and it is something you want nothing to do with and instead should run away from as fast as you can. They are the conscienceless, the manipulators, the con-men, the liars, the thieves, the rapists, the murderers - those with fragmented, sometimes disintegrated, selves.
The closest researchers can describe these people is that they have many selves, and none of them are connected to the others. This is why they can murder and mutilate, then sit down to dinner and act totally normal ("He seemed like such a normal guy...I had no idea he was a rapist and a serial killer!")
The idea of many disconnected selves is not a new one: "So Jesus asked him, 'What is your name!' The man answered, 'My name is Mob - there are so many of us!'" (Sometimes "Legion" is used instead of "Mob" - and a Roman legion was 6000 men.)
When I first read as a teenager that episode about Jesus and the disturbed man I had no idea what it meant. I do now.
What these "I dig losers" women have in common is that they have no respect for themselves, and they are attracted to men who have no respect for themselves, either.
Like attracts like.
Most of the women I have met who are like this are drug addicts, whores, groupies, ex-cons.
I'll use one example I know very well. (How many examples am I supposed to use? Ten? I can do that.)
This woman does not want to work. She thinks she should be supported. She uses marijuana every day, and has for decades. She is a mooch, and a parasite - a vampire. She even mooches off her children, who she thinks should support her.
Every man she gets involved with is bottom of the barrel - drug addicts, ex-cons, welfare bums, thieves. Emotionally unstable bums. One is consistently getting arrested by the police, who told him, "We are going to arrest you until you leave the city and never come back."
These guys are not "Alphas." They are the true Omegas.
One theory is that women think their love can fix these men. I haven't seen that. I'm not saying it doesn't exist. I just haven't seen it.
I have seen rationalizations that these men possess talent, and if they used it they could make a good living. Perhaps. But they don't. In fact, they never do.
Every woman I've meet like this has come from a broken or dysfunctional family. It's got to the point with this particular woman she can no longer recognize a decent man when she meets one.
Some, perhaps most, of these women are drama queens. They find these guys exciting because they are always in trouble. It's their own private soap opera. That's a cheap form of excitement, and only shows these women are immature and emotionally shallow. It's as if they have little or no feelings and are trying to make themselves feel alive.
I've also never seen one with a high IQ. Their IQs have always been average or below-average.
When a woman's attraction to these Omegas is extreme, then it becomes a mental/emotional disorder known as Hybristophilia: "a paraphilia of the predatory type in which sexual arousal, facilitation, and attainment of orgasm are responsive to and contingent upon being with a partner known to have committed an outrage,cheating, lying, known infidelities or crime, such as rape, murder, or armed robbery."
The word "Hybristophilia" is derived a Greek word meaning "to commit an outrage against someone" and is related to the word "hubris," one meaning of which is to humiliate someone in public, which the Greeks considered so obscene they banned it from their theater.
I will say one thing more: the more marriages break up or fail to form, the more women like this will be created, because they have no decent, admirable fathers to look up to. They will end up short on normal feelings, which they try to achieve through drugs and drama. They have little insight into themselves or others. Let's say they lack emotional intelligence
As for those leftist men and women who think children can be raised by a mother without a father, they're lunatics.
It is, after all, far, far easier to sink than fly.
