Watch a data scientist misunderstand their own data and make sweeping comments about all culture

Quilette often talk about interesting things but also, Bradford is an idiot
Tinder data scientists Wrote:“the bottom 80% of men (in terms of attractiveness) are competing for the bottom 22% of women and the top 78% of women are competing for the top 20% of men.”

Using this and some similar data Bradford suggests:
Bradford Tuckfield Wrote:If these findings are to be believed, the great majority of women are only willing to communicate romantically with a small minority of men while most men are willing to communicate romantically with most women. The degree of inequality in “likes” and “matches” credibly measures the degree of inequality in attractiveness, and necessarily implies at least that degree of inequality in romantic experiences. It seems hard to avoid a basic conclusion: that the majority of women find the majority of men unattractive and not worth engaging with romantically, while the reverse is not true. Stated in another way, it seems that men collectively create a “dating economy” for women with relatively low inequality, while women collectively create a “dating economy” for men with very high inequality.

I sort of feel like Bradford failed to address the variables of effort and taste in taking good profile photos, innate sexiness vs whether or not people are fit/well dressed/wearing the correct amount of toner. Like, maybe one possible bit of advice is: try harder at being sexy if you want to be sexy. Some things (eg: facial symmetry) are difficult to change without some serious surgery and money but many things are not

Instead:
Bradford Tuckfield Wrote:As Western civilization declines or at least frays at the edges, the ways our culture has developed to deal with the gap in the attractiveness distribution are receding and dying. Young people enter the equality-inducing institution of monogamy later and later or not at all, spending more time in a chaotically unequal polygynous dating world. Monogamy itself is weaker, as divorce becomes easier and even married people often report encountering “dead bedrooms” in which one or both spouses feel no obligation to give a partner who they do not regard as sufficiently attractive access to sexual experiences. Religious belief is in constant decline, and with it declines the belief in the dignity of celibacy or the importance of anything other than hedonism (sexual or otherwise). Even fairy tales that for centuries helped us understand how to live charitably with each other are disavowed and cultural tastemakers like Time Magazine and the BBC denigrate them as sexist.

What kind of dickhead takes three or so constrained bits of data and then describes monogamy as sexual income redistribution
