u/g59thaset Jun 09 '23

Some women like dudes that are basically women with male genitals, some women like dudes that are masculine to an excess. It literally depends on the eye of the beholder. This is even seen in gay dudes where sometimes it's 2 feminine guys or 1 feminine and 1 masculine, or 2 masculine.

u/Erpes2 Jun 09 '23

Ofc everyone has their preferences but you have to admit there is a general trend in the idea of beauty that the majority of people tend to follow, and even make those that don’t fit those norms uncomfortable in their skin

That’s why I said greater chance of success

Quite interesting, cuz once I lived in an apartment complex that had a huge mosquito problem (still puzzled where they came from, basement of the building was bone dry), I developed semi-immunity to their bites. They would hurt and itch for a few hours and then be gone almost completely. Then I moved to a different region and my immunity is much less impressive with local mosquitos for some reason.

well the tonic water for gin and tonics were popular with british colonizers in malaria stricken areas because the quinine in the tonic is a powerful anti parasitic that kills the malaria parasite and prevents it from growing! it’s a huge reason the british we’re able to do effectively colonize and subjugate people in tropical regions where previously malaria had been a big barrier. British east india company created and popularized the cocktail for military in the 1700s for this exact reason. Gin and tonics were part of the daily rations. So there’s something to this!

I'm a Texan, and while we have a lot of mosquitoes, they aren't all that big. I've been to Manitoba, however, and their mosquitoes are practically big enough to be the state bird. I'm defended, mostly, in Texas, but in Manitoba, they'd casually bite me right through my jeans, which is something that had never happened to me up until then. I'm just saying that it isn't just the stiffness of the body hair that's relevant, but also the prowess of the mosquitoe. If it's basically a creature you'd see in a horror movie or read about in a xianxia novel, body hair probably isn't going to stop it

I have a theory about this.

I used to have moderate body hair, and got the odd mosquito bite here and there.

Almost 20 years ago, I developed alopecia and lost all of my hair. I get zero mosquito bites ever since.

I’ve actually wondered if the mosquitoes need a few hairs to push against to force their proboscis into my skin. I think simply gripping my skin with their legs is not enough leverage to do the job.

Just a theory with no research behind it.

76

u/Pixel131211 Jun 09 '23

Mosquito's don't need any leverage to push their proboscis through your skin. Their proboscis is actually pretty advanced and has 6 needles inside of it. 2 of which are literally tiny little saws which it uses to saw through your skin to get in there, and then 2 other needles are used to hold your skin open. It doesn't push a needle through you, but rather cuts into you and then inserts a needle after.

Mosquito's are advanced little creatures. It's kind of amazing.

I realize this is cliche but this is like a double or triple reverse uno card. Mosquitoes can’t bite you through a mat of hair. Mosquitoes can’t hold on to anything with enough leverage to bite you if you have zero hair. There must be an optimal amount of body hair for traction but not impeding the biting. Huh.

31

u/Adept-Painting8565 Jun 09 '23

Definitely an interesting thought. I saw a video of an ant “biting” someone close up recently, and the bite is actually just to stabilise them so they can use their stinger. Certainly put things into a new perspective!

Have had alopecia for the majority of my life, always got bit. So don't think the lack of hair is preventing anything otherwise kids wouldn't be bit.

Robin Williams's arms probably never got bitten by mosquitos.

I remember seeing the video where he befriends the gorilla (Bobo?) and they have almost equally hairy arms.

He is missed. And so many things reminds me of him. Of all the ones we've lost.
