|Handsome Brute: British cannibal Matthew Williams|
The pick-up artist community likes to draw on evolutionary psychology for its memes and arguments. While I have some sympathy for their general perspective, it is sometimes hard to square these arguments with real-world events - as the following story illustrates:
Welsh Cannibal Matthew Williams Eats Victim Cerys Marie Yemm and then Dies after being Tasered in Homeless Hostel
The not unattractive Ms Yemm
A killer was allegedly found eating the body parts of a woman he had attacked before being shot with a Taser by police yesterday. He later died. The woman, who died of her injuries, has been named as Cerys Marie Yemm. Matthew Williams, 34, is reported to have been eating the eyeball and face of the 22-year-old woman, who died of her injuries. Police confirmed they had used a 50,000-volt Taser on Williams. Security staff at a hostel for the homeless in Argoed, South Wales, became suspicious when Williams refused to let them enter the room. They are said to have forced entry, before calling the police who knocked Williams to the ground with a Taser gun.
While deeply disturbing, the story does seem to shed important light on what women find inherently attractive in a man. Whatever else may be said of Williams, he seemed to have some pretty impressive Game skills. After all, despite living in a hostel for the homeless he was able to pick up a fairly attractive young woman for a night of fun and - well, let's leave it at that. He had been imprisoned for a violent attack on his former partner, something Ms Yemm quite possibly knew about (they were 'known to each other', after all). In addition, Williams was suffering severe mental illness prior to the attack, a result of long-term drug abuse. Indeed, he reported seeing the world as a black-and-white negative. Safe pair of hands, then...
So there we have it. A sadistic, woman-beating thug without education, intelligence or looks, dressed like the inmate of some Eighteenth Century prison hulk, living in a malodorous doss-house full of other psychotic misfits and seeing the world as a photographic negative is able to pick up a relatively attractive young girl ten years younger than himself without any problem at all. Quite the Gamer!
While I am fully aware that the Traditionalist MRAs' fixation with putting the clock back to an era that elides the inchoate vagaries of female mate-choice is deluded, stories like this sometimes make me wish such a thing were possible.
