BREAKING: Men Like Beer And Attractive Women

Guys! Guys! Think Progress has a major scoop....men go to places like Twin Peaks and Hooters to look at attractive women and not to have deep, meaningful conversations with the waitresses.

Game Status: Changed!

Twin Peaks attributes its success to a basic understanding of the sexes. “Men are simple creatures and so you don’t have to get too crazy to get them in the door,” Kristen Colby, the director of marketing for Twin Peaks franchise, told the Huffington Post earlier this year. She said that beer, sports, and beautiful women are all it takes.

Fact check says: No shit.

TP seems to think this is insulting...to men.

But the restaurant chain’s internal memo aimed at “guys-guys” is a reminder that deeply entrenched gender roles can also impact men. In a society where men are assumed to be “simple creatures” who never want to talk about they’re thinking or feeling, there isn’t a lot of room for more nuanced explorations of masculinity — something that researchers confirm has demonstrably negative consequences for men’s health.

It's not that men "never" want to have serious conversations. It's that they don't really want to have them at a downscale chain restaurant with women they don't know and probably wouldn't come across in any other situation.

The idea that men will be insulted that marketers are capitalizing on the idea we have egos and like to have them stroked (even in a phony way) by hot women to escape the pressure of the day is laughable. This is why guys GO TO PLACES LIKE THIS. It's a feature, not a bug. The only people who are surprised by the nature of the transaction at work here are the type of people who write and read Think Progress.

Liberals want to control every aspect of your life but so much of what they believe only makes sense if you know nothing about basic human behavior and have never met any actual human beings.
