OneSTDV would appreciate this. I’ll admit to having kept up with the Kardashians just enough to know that the kid brother, Rob, is a whining sniveling beta who is the product of his parents – a shrike of a mother who was unfaithful to the kid’s dad. Kardashian, who is – to borrow Ron White’s term “looooo-a-a-a-a-a-a-d-e-e-e-e-e-d” – took to twitter to lament a bad breakup:
I have sympathy for men of humble means who get blindsided. I do not have sympathy for men of means who are oblivious enough to let this happen or, worse, who are so unaware that they’ll openly embarrass themselves on social media.
Though I’m only vaguely aware of Rob’s behavior on the show, he seems like an adult toddler who lashes out in various ways, and not in the healthy masculine ways that I could defend (getting arrested for a bar fight or something cool). He has a woe-is-me attitude which is probably the function of having three older sisters and the aforementioned power mom. So he’s sitting in limbo between seething hatred for his female family members but a sort of allegiance and naivete about women in general. It’s circular – like the plastic zip tie they use to neuter calves. And that’s too much chaos for someone to handle, regardless of how much practice they’ve had at being a young money alpha. His models taught him the wrong role – how to be a bitch.
Rob’s situation hits on recent research into sibling genetics:
Shorter women have more children. And while being on the low end of the measuring stick benefits them on an evolutionary scale, it keeps their brothers from attaining the trait that favors their reproductive success: average height. Researchers in the UK claim to be the first to demonstrate this new explanation for why height variation exists: That one’s height depends heavily on one’s genes, and that the genetic mechanisms for determining height are similar in men and women, preventing each gender from being able to evolve independently toward their sex-specific ideals.
Rob Kardashian has attractive sisters (OK, two out of three ain’t bad). The genetic pool that allowed for them to be attractive and feminine looking also cursed young Rob. Besides the psychological trauma he’s probably suffered by being around three she-wolves his whole life, Rob is fixed with non-alpha (male) genes. He doesn’t seem to have inherited the intelligence or drive of his late father (Robert Kardashian, O.J. Simpson confidant and attorney), so he’s in over his head. He’s a prominent beta face in an alpha world.
