    women could change the course of the world if they'd push against their evolutionary programming of attraction to virile, aggressive, Marlboro man types (and there's valid scientific reasoning why) and began to throw themselves passionately to the nerds, the scientists, the teachers, the intellectuals of our society.  

    We men grow up with very weird mixed messages that, in order to have the sexiest and most dynamic women fawn over us, we must be more like the football player or firefighter than the marine biologist or the physics professor.  I and most of my intellectual friends simply rejected that notion and went on to expand our brains more than our physique but that dynamic was very real and it often felt unfair when you'd walk into a bar knowing you were brighter and funnier than 90% of the other men in the place and yet you were turned down to dance while the jocks and narcissists reaped the harvest of attention.  

    Certainly this is just a hunch and I've seen glaring exceptions but I've also had many very bright and lovely women tell me that they go for "bad boys".  Wouldn't it be a hoot if young adolescent men instead had the message in front of them that, if they wanted to score with the hottest women, they should break out their calculus book.
