Christy Winters, Thomas Smith, Intel discussed on Serious Inquiries Only
I'm your host Thomas Smith and got interview for you with Christy winters back on the show for the n time any qu'ils not enough. So I'm sure we'll have her back again more than more than a couple. But not enough. I think is the answer. We are discussing this article I will link it in the show notes, it is called attraction inequality and the dating economy, and it certainly caught both. Our is our sets of is because it has a lot of talking points that are used by Intel HS and red pill people in, but it also tries to put like a scholarly shine on it, which is I guess that's a good summary of Quillet in my opinion, trying to put a scholarly shine on some of these more awful talking points around the internet, and so I had her onto discuss. The data. They used in. How it does or doesn't actually support what they're saying? Okay. So let's hop on over to my interview with Christy winters. It's Dr Christy winters back on the show. Welcome back. Good to speak to you. Again. How you doing? Oh my goodness. It's it's it's it's been quite a week. And it's only Monday. Fine. Happy to be back on and talking with you about something that's very nerdy. Which is kind of my that's my area of YouTube being in social media. So. Both nerdy. And not nerdy. I get why any any non nerdy thing can be nerdy. If you get enough data about it. Right. That is true. You can make anything sexy or thirty. I guess here. Lots of things. Stats are involved. That's all. All right. Well, yeah. There was a Quillet article, you know, the esteemed publication Quillet dot com had an article this was in early March. And it it made right away. My alarm bells kinda went off because the title is attraction inequality in the dating economy and right away. It it introduces and talks about the this sort of eighty twenty concept that I've seen referenced by in cells, and it's in I think it's in the red pill documentary thing where it's like, oh turns out men are the real victims here, and that kind of thing now, I don't know though, it references some studies. So I thought you know, it'd be great to talk to you. Somebody who social scientists whose way more literate in data studies on on the seven we'd see kind of separate fact from fiction or at least day. Data from extrapolation inappropriately of the data. Maybe that kind of think, Ed. Very well said, yeah, I think that's a good. That's a good way of putting it. Just to recap. What you said there is this Quillet article that came out, and it has the idea of attraction inequality, the dating in Konami, the dating economy, and the article it self gonna goes through as you were saying this narrative where they talk about they set up the thing about the dating. And then they start to point to some studies and studies that look at at dating it would seem to be. But when I started unpacking and looking deeper into the studies, they use a realize that the story was one way more complicated and not even more complicated than they. They've just misinterpreted the data some important ways to create a narrative that you as you mentioned fulfils this men are the victims in some tally. I think also I would say probably intellectual dark web. There has there's a sort of tinge of that roaming around in that area as well. Now, it sounds when you when you read the article, it sounds really impressive. There's this person that they're citing. And he used something called the Ginnie coefficient which is something that has been used the problem with that article though. So anyway, let me actually let me get to their conclusion. And then we'll go back and look at the studies to see whether or not the study's actually say what they say. Disclaimers. Of course, we are going to be speaking broadly about hetero men and women had Roe relationships. That's going to be probably the focus because that's what the data available is for this particular discussion..
