Getting all Bryn Mawr

I read this article on the Freakonomics blog and a whole slew of people shot straight to the top of my 'find their car and take a dump on it' list.

To paraphrase the article:
Under particular discussion is a pickup technique that Mystery advocates known as “negging” — a move that involves interjecting an insult during an initial conversation with a woman. The motivation behind the insult is, as Esquire’s A.J. Jacobs puts it, to “lower her self-esteem, thus making her more vulnerable to your advances.”

I have run into guys like this and when they insult you and you respond appropriately (drink in lap/testicle removal) they always call you a 'stuck up bitch.' I have since learned that for men like this, any girl who has the ability to resist the will of any man is 'a bitch.' And that any girl smarter than him is 'stuck up.'

Now here is the issue that I have with this theory: if you are just looking for someone to have sex with, you can easily pick up chicks with self-esteem issues without having to be an overt asshole; you can be a covert asshole. There are a whole lot of women so dumb or desperate that you don't even have to trick them to have sex with you mere hours after meeting.

Quiana's Guide for Men Who Want to Get Laid Tonight!
1. Look for the tramp stamp. Lower back tattoo = easy pickings.
2. Pick a less pretty girl out of a group of girls- especially bachelorette parties.
3. Pick up a really young or much older woman in the bar. 21 year olds may not be wise enough to know about guys like you, older women will be flattered by your attention and probably won't care about being used.
4. Find a girl that's alone. If she's at a bar alone, she's looking for exactly what you have available. Or she is a prostitute. Either way it's a win!! (Unless she's a tranny, caveat emptor, my friend.)
5. Craigslist casual encounters.

I am queen of the stuck up bitches, I suppose. You are merely a dame, given your frequent ability to affiance.

But, I'll still allow you at my court, for you are quite good at the whole "stuck-up bitch" thing when you care to be.

So long as there are cookies in the stuck up bitch court, I'm there. Though I'm sad that I don't get to be the queen. [insert Steve is a queen joke here.]

I am twice as baffled by my supposed mariagability than anyone else.

I assure you, I am just as emotionally distant and unavailable when I'm dating someone as when I'm not.

Not to interrupt the girl fight but what the hell does this mean?

'find their car and take a dumb on it'.

As far as I can gather you are either going to find their car and be quiet on it (little chance of that) or you are going to do something stupid on it.

Well at least you did go for the easy poo joke or anything that tacky.
