He’s figured you out, ladies! Or so he thinks. One bold MGTOW has a new explanation for why women generally prefer taller men. It’s because every woman is a golddigger at heart, and tall men die younger than short men, which means a briefer wait to cash in on the life insurance.
“What’s the obsession with harlots claiming to only desire men that are 6’0-7’2?” writes NoMeansYesNate in the Men Going Their Own Way subreddit.
It has nothing to do with penis size that’s for sure.
No, the reason gold diggers prefer to focus on tall men is because their life span is shorter than theirs by 7.9%..
This means she won’t have to commit to the poor sap forever, just long enough to get a nice insurance payout when he dies.
Oh, those sneaky women!
That’s a devious path to take just to gain short-term financial security but what other options do they have?
There isn’t an abundance of easy old men waiting around to get tricked into marriage for an easy comeuppance anymore (e.g. Howard Marshall II) & escorting + onlyfans subscriptions can only generate so much revenue at the sacrifice of them becoming incapable of enjoying sex later.
So naturally the ladies have turned to seducing tall men. Natually.
There are a few small problems with Nate’s theory here. First though there are some scientific studies suggesting that tall men (and tall women) die younger than their shorter counterparts, pretty much no one is aware of this. (I never heard of it before Nate’s post.) Second, if the point is to marry a guy who will die soon, why does this preference for taller men also apply to young men who aren’t likely to die for fifty or sixty more years? I mean, if you’re a heartless golddigger, that seems like a very long time to wait.
And then there’s the fact that women aren’t actually a bunch of heartless golddiggers.
Nate addresses none of these obvious challenges to his thesis but instead changes the subject to an old MGTOW favorite — the supposedly upcoming societal crash that will send once-haughty women scurrying back to men for help.
It’s basically going to take the societal collapse we’re all witnesssing to get things back to normal. All of this happening right now was inevitable & is one of the things I’m excited to see. Who thought watching the world burn could be such a joyous experience?
Plenty of them are facing evictions & unemployment, so expect to see more strays changing their standards in hopes you’ll take them in off the streets and provide shelter.
Nate’s colleagues in the MGTOW subreddit don’t all buy his argument.
“Dude, we are talking about women here,” writes Ocjab.
Women can barely understand math. Let alone what percentile means.
Nah, the reason they go for tall men is because they are rare. That is it. They view rare as “high value”. They want to out do other women and to do that, they want rare men. Everyone can get a plumber but not everyone can get a tall guy.
Others suggest that women like tall men for no other reason beyond plain old peer pressure. Global_MGTOW writes:
I really think the tall meme is something women picked up from other women. Sort of how the majority of women wear makeup, even if they hate makeup, they do it because that’s what other women do. Like retarded giraffe women who are insecure about their height, yet STILL wear high heels. It makes sense for most women to wear high heels because they’re midgets compared to the average guy, but a 6’5+ giraffe of a woman who is already insecure about her height wearing high heels?
99% of women are followers, not leaders. So if one girl and her friends say they only want to date 6’2+ guys, then the vast majority of women will repeat that meme so they can fit into their herd. I’ve banged girls who have posted the tall meme and I’m pretty short.
Dunkman83 put it a little more concisely:
One day a pretty woman said.”i only like tall guys”
And every other woman followed suit like a bunch of lemmings
This only popped up in the last 20 years..
Yet another commenter is mad that Nate’s argument isn’t evo-psychy enough, grousing sarcastically that
I’m sure it has nothing to do with tall men being more able to provide and protect. Let’s take evolution, shove it up our ass, and shit it in the trash bin.
What a lovely bit of imagery.
While the cause of women’s preference for tall men may remain elusive, one thing is for sure: Women definitely don’t prefer MGTOWs.
