Conventions pay off – so?

yes, it ‘pays” to be conventionally attractive. this is where hard science fails: looking at the facts, and hard data, misses so much.

like the social context and consequences for other people. we’re talking about an ongoing narrative that goes beyond numbers.

in the same way that it “pays” to be conventionally attractive, it also “pays” to be religious because religious people have community, a sense of belonging, are also more popular (like the conventionally attractive people), etc.

now, given all that, does it mean i should become a republican? i don’t think so.
