Don’t eat me I’m poisonous…
In the wild, there are creatures that display bright colors to indicate a level of toxicity to the would be predator. This is called Aposematism. For animals in the wild, this is an effective means of survival.
However, today we are looking at aposematism in humans. Because humans have no natural predators, aposematism has manifested in interesting ways.
From my observations, flamboyant displays of brightly colored hair and outrageous social behavior is the human version of aposematism. It says non-verbally “Don’t mess with me,” or “there is something wrong with me.” I will explain in the following…
Let’s go back to the wild for a moment. I want you to imagine yourself as a jungle cat, and you encounter a brightly colored…thing. I’m guessing you, as the cat, would say to yourself “there is probably something wrong with this thing. Therefore, I will not eat it.” And now imagine yourself as the frog. You are probably not thinking much, not only are you a frog, you were also born with the colors that protect you. No external action created that skin. Undoubtedly, this characteristic evolved over large amounts of time.
However, one creature that does require some external action for its poisonous self-defense mechanism is the potato beetle. It eats deadly nightshade, a very poisonous mushroom, and then covers itself in its own feces. The potato beetle is brown, so no bright colors (yet), but it has the strong smell of shit that gives warning to predators.
There are some animals that emulate the dangerous bright creatures, but they are not actually poisonous. A common example is the coral snake vs. the scarlet king snake. The king snake has developed a strikingly similar color pattern to the deadly coral snake. The king snake is not venomous though. The motivation to evolve this way is clear.
Tying this all together…
Humans have all kinds of evolutionary baggage from when we were lesser critters. For example, the part of the brain that controls depression, anxiety, and confidence we kept from when we branched off from lobsters. So, it stands to reason that humans could carry over the instinct to raise their defenses when feeling vulnerable.
To compensate for their lack of intelligence, the people in question (SJW’s, third-wave feminists, modern leftists) bloviate and shriek. To distract you from their internal/external hideousness, they display bright colors. To hide their physical frailty, they travel in packs. To hide mental illness, they will do something else outrageous, like shit their pants or forego any type of hygiene (how people think that’s normal is beyond me).
SIDE NOTE: This may also be true for people with gender dysphoria. The condition carries with it constant feelings of being judged due to lack of self-esteem, brought on by self-hate. To compensate, some choose to act and dress flamboyantly to hide their perceived vulnerability.
It is my only rational conclusion, that the behavior on display by sjw’s and their ilk, is spurred on by a feeling of self-loathing and vulnerability, probably generated by fatherless homes, a lack of a family structure in general, and poor public education.
