The body guard hypothesis has already been debunked my man[edit source]
Girls are linearly less attracted to extremely tall men. (Every inch above 6ft) Despite the tallest men, being the most status, (the best bodyguards). That is just one instance though of there being a curvilinear relationship with attractiveness and dominance. IE. the most dominant guy is attractive but not the most attractive.
"The most common explanation is foids would want a tall man because they’ll think “he’ll be stronger and better able to ward off physical threats to his family”. Scientific studies on male height and attractiveness have shown this to be completely false. Women are linearly less attracted to the tallest men (every inch above 6ft). Women view the same man at 6ft 6 just as unattractive at 5ft 7. The reason the same guy at 6ft 6 will have more sex, is because the guy at 6ft 6 is and will be perceived to be more dominant, and thus higher status. Status accounts for 62% of the variance of copulation opportunities. Women are most attracted to a height of 6ft because that is the height their brains tell them is most aesthetically pleasing."
- You are right that there is a male-not-too-tall norm, but this does not refute bodyguard hypothesis.Bibipi (talk) 16:49, 19 December 2019 (UTC)
How does that not refute BH?
" In truth, they choose from the most dominant male available to them." Straight up false, man complete bullshit. They choose the most attractive man. Also BH would make more sense on the Gigachad page. Mikey (talk) 17:13, 19 December 2019 (UTC)
Even Though Chad is just good looking, Chad could be a decent bodyguard, however women do not select for the best possible bodyguard. IE a 7ft 2 inches tall bodybuilder[edit source]
His shorter brother has RS btw. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40MacuNt2XE&t=335s
See yur edit about historically women choose the most dominant man for resources[edit source]
That's male choice not female choice. In a society like that the most dominant men would choose the women not the other way around.
Still doesn't make sense[edit source]
the most dominant man (highest status) would be a king, cult leader, leader among men, dictator, general, etc. and have his pick of the women, the women would have no choice. The women may learn to find the highest status guy also the most attractive, after being chosen due to Stockholm syndrome.
In modern society, they could hook up with less dominant men, but they don't. E.g. career women are not rarely single because they cannot date up. This is clearly their decision, not because nobody is interested. This proves they are not merely chosen, but it is their own preference that coincides with the mechanism of men choosing them. My point is exactly that it is not king or chad, but the best man that shows interest. Bibipi (talk) 17:43, 19 December 2019 (UTC)
Hmmm should write the bodyguard hypothesis page. Sounds interesting/confusing. Seems very Meta, highly dominant (career) women choosing the most attractive guy out of a pool of even more dominant (career) men.
