Another Study: Muslim Suicide Bombers Are Losers Who Can't Get Laid

Psychology Today runs a top ten politically incorrect truths about human behavior. A lot of this seems pretty damn bullshitty to me, as does, well, all of psychology.

However, I really can't argue with this. Note that "polygyny" means, I think, polygamy as we all understand it to exist --- specifically the taking of more than one wife by a single husband. I guess the distaff version would be polyandry, but that's almost unyeard of, except maybe for Catherine the Great, and she was more of a fan of polyequiny, I've heard.

Muslim suicide bombing...has a lot to do with sex, or, in this case, the absence of sex.

What distinguishes Islam from other major religions is that it tolerates polygyny. By allowing some men to monopolize all women and altogether excluding many men from reproductive opportunities, polygyny creates shortages of available women. If 50 percent of men have two wives each, then the other 50 percent don't get any wives at all.

So polygyny increases competitive pressure on men, especially young men of low status. It therefore increases the likelihood that young men resort to violent means to gain access to mates. By doing so, they have little to lose and much to gain compared with men who already have wives. Across all societies, polygyny makes men violent, increasing crimes such as murder and rape, even after controlling for such obvious factors as economic development, economic inequality, population density, the level of democracy, and political factors in the region.
...

The other key ingredient is the promise of 72 virgins waiting in heaven for any martyr in Islam. The prospect of exclusive access to virgins may not be so appealing to anyone who has even one mate on earth, which strict monogamy virtually guarantees. However, the prospect is quite appealing to anyone who faces the bleak reality on earth of being a complete reproductive loser.

...nearly all suicide bombers are single.

Confirmation! Well, whatever.

“We knew that Bilal was a religious person. He had a beard, and we used to say that he looked like a Wahhabi,” a medical school colleague of Dr. Abdulla’s brother said. At the university, Bilal Abdulla was a loner, according to a medical school colleague who graduated alongside him in 2003. “Dr. Bilal was not a normal person: he never had a girlfriend or close friendships with other students,” the fellow medical student said…

Which explains what many are calling the headline of the year:

HERO CABBIE: I KICKED BURNING TERRORIST SO HARD IN BALLS THAT I TORE A TENDON

...and yet that tendon-tearing nard-punt failed to drop the loser.

“Then I kicked him with full force right in the balls but he didn’t go down. He just kept on babbling his rubbish.

”I couldn’t believe that he was still standing. I know I would have been floored by that kind of kick.“

No point kicking them in the balls-- they've atrophied to the point they've become shrunken, useless vestigal organs.

Thanks to Jason and John.
