I have talked about how dating advice is used as a scam to convince people to believe in a particular ideology. While the manuresphere is a good example of this, using dating advice to make men believe in a particular ideology is not limited to them. The Dickless Mangina Project has a page about how going green will makes men attractive and sexy (and by extension get men laid).
If going green will get a man laid, then it should be easy to show examples of ugly and poor men who go green and become attractive to women. The page has no examples. In fact, the two examples the page gives of guys who are going green are a rock star and a rich and famous actor. Both men are good looking. Women would be attracted to them whether they were going green or industrial level polluters. This shows that going green has no effect on a man’s attractiveness. If a man is already attractive, then going green won’t have a negative effect, but it won’t have a positive effect either. If an unattractive man goes green, women won’t care and will treat him the same as they did before.
A while ago, I was in downtown Vancouver for several days. There was this homeless guy who was picking up trash and trying to keep part of the downtown area clean and green. (He was doing this as a form of panhandling, but he was trying to do something rather than just hold his hand out.) It was pretty obvious that this homeless guy was not getting laid at all. His decision to be green did not help him proving the page at The Dickless Mangina Project to be a complete lie. This is just another example of trying to use dating advice to manipulate men into a political ideology.
Why are there all these attempts to link being successful at getting women with believing in the “right” political ideology? It is because most people believe in the Just World Fallacy when it comes to men and dating/relationships/sex. They believe that a man who is successful at getting women must have the “right” politics whatever they believe the “right” politics to be. This is because having the “right” politics is believed by most people to be equivalent to being moral and virtuous. In the page from The Dickless Mangina Project, the “right” politics happens to be environmentalism. For others it is feminism. For the manuresphere, it is racism and anti-semitism. The reality is that the Just World Fallacy is a fallacy for a reason. There is no connection between being attractive to women and having a particular set of political beliefs. In fact, there is no connection between being attractive to women and being moral and virtuous.
