Allow Me to Introduce Myself

The Dude (a pseudonym, and not necessarily one intended to recall The Big Lebowski) plays an important role in RedShoeWay.

I’m here to help demystify some of the thinking and behavior of those of us who possess both X and Y chromosomes.

We’re different, in case you haven’t noticed.  And, if we’re to get along well, we’ll all be well-served to acknowledge that the differences between men and women are real, important, and to be celebrated.  It’s one of the few things the French had right (“Vive la difference.”)  That and their cheeses, and some of their wines.

So I’ll point those out, often with a chuckle at the oddities that come with the Y chromosome and our other features.

There’s a quid pro quo, though.  Another important form that truth-telling takes is calling b.s. on the fairer sex — those of you with two X chromosomes.  You may not like what I have to say on this topic from time to time, but I assure you that it’ll be honest, and more often than not, it’ll be some close variation on what the Y chromosomes in your life are thinking.

I welcome and even encourage queries from you. Since we live in these oddly shaped bodies (in comparison to yours, which we typically find to be far better designed), we often aren’t aware of our own peculiarities. Sort of like the frog that doesn’t notice that the water is getting hot.  (That one doesn’t end well…the frog boils to death).

I’ll poke fun at and attempt to demystify men…but it’ll come with an occasional helping of humble pie for women, too.  And sure you will dish it back. It’s all fun.

Keep it all in context. We’re different. We’re made that way. That’s a good thing.

On with the show.

    What are the dude’s thoughts on the evolution of the “beta male”?

  6. The Dude says:

    Urban Dictionary (one of the many sources of all wisdom) has some interesting definitions for “beta male.” They are here: The alpha/beta discussion is something akin to the madonna/whore discussion. There’s a little bit of both in everyone. “Pure” betas don’t evolve; they die off quickly as their gene pool doesn’t extend itself. “Pure” alphas are just dicks. The sweet spot is somewhere that’s mostly alpha (we are, after all, men) with enough beta to keep the XXs from killing us or ditching us.
