    Why do women deny hypergamy when it is so obvious?

    Best answer: Hypergamy is a form of gynocentrism.  Gynocentrism has been the norm and so accepted that people don't stop to think or complain about this gender bias.  Society tends to focus on gender biases when women are under represented or taken advantage of, not the reverse. Nobody gives it a second thought that women... show more
    Best answer: Hypergamy is a form of gynocentrism.  Gynocentrism has been the norm and so accepted that people don't stop to think or complain about this gender bias.  Society tends to focus on gender biases when women are under represented or taken advantage of, not the reverse. Nobody gives it a second thought that women are given lighter criminal sentencing, that women are exempt from selective service, that women owned businesses are advantaged, etc.  Favoritism for women is just so accepted, almost nobody considers how biased it is.

    So, hypergamy like other gynocentric practice is just accepted without thought.  People will think nothing of a female nurse marrying a male doctor but of course, the opposite would be noticed.  Heck, most people don't even know what hypergamy means, they've give it such little thought.

    Feminists of course have an even bigger reason to deny hypergamy and gynocentrism in general.  Their agenda of winning entitlements for female is dependent on selling the illusion women are oppressed victims.  Hypergamy and other gynocentric practices don't fit their agenda.

    Why do Republicans love guns so much? They don’t care about shooting victims?

    Best answer: Most Republicans don't love guns as much as they (and the media) make it out to be, but the Republican base consists of a lot of rural, old white mails who think that owning guns makes them feel macho. So, like politicians of ANY stripe, the pander to the fringes.

    Why is healthcare so expensive?

    Best answer: Actually, that is a very good question. I listen to NPR a lot, and around 2-3 years ago I remember them discussing this topic at some length. They interviewed a woman whose husband was in his mid 50s who was diagnosed with malignant melanoma cancer. Over a ~2 year period, he underwent 57 CAT scans and had expensive... show more
    Best answer: Actually, that is a very good question. I listen to NPR a lot, and around 2-3 years ago I remember them discussing this topic at some length. They interviewed a woman whose husband was in his mid 50s who was diagnosed with malignant melanoma cancer. Over a ~2 year period, he underwent 57 CAT scans and had expensive chemotherapy and surgery, with over $1,200,000 having been spent on his healthcare. Then do you know what happened next?
    He died. 
    Way back when Bill Clinton was President, Hillary proposed Hillarycare, (which bombed in the Congress at that time.). Hillary did talk about a 96 year old woman who underwent a $250,000 hip replacement, and then died less than 2 years later. 
    We spend $Billions on people who lie in nursing homes all day staring at the ceiling, who are fed through tubes inserted into their stomachs and who can't even control their own drool. Why do we do this? Because their families will say, "I wants everything done for Mama."
    And then there are millions of people who show up in emergency rooms and doctors' offices, who want to get an antibiotic for their common cold, when this is known to be totally ineffective and a waste of money. But people want it anyway. 
    People smoke 2 packs of cigarettes per day for 40 years, and then expect Medicare to pay for their expensive triple coronary bypass, or their expensive lung cancer chemotherapy, or their expensive home Oxygen therapy, etc. 
    And then there are all of the Psych cases out there, need I go on? 
    In short, ~20% of the public consumes ~90% of the healthcare costs. 
    And socialized healthcare will just make matters worse, not better.

    Does Trump have the credibility to lead the country during this coronavirus pandemic?

    Best answer: Sadly, no, his "hurricane warning" incident showed us that he'd rather tell lies supporting his prior statement than convey important truths in an emergency.

    If only the coronavirus were a "convoy" in Central America - Then Trump would be issuing warnings and dire predictions every hour.
