The Tropism of a Genetically-Encoded FOP?

I will not restate the NATURE/NURTURE debate.

Hypothetically, lets say Elliot was a fop.


If NATURE had anything to do with it, he would have come from a lineage of fops.


Flip a coin.

My guess is that poor Elliot was a tropism of a fopism.



And, he had delusions of grandeur.
He saw girls dating men who were unworthy of their affection.

"How many students watch outsized frat-boy fantasies like Neighbors and feel, as Rodger did, unjustly shut out of college life that should be full of “sex and fun and pleasure”? How many men, raised on a steady diet of Judd Apatow comedies in which the shlubby arrested adolescent always gets the girl, find that those happy endings constantly elude them and conclude, “It’s not fair”?"

Perhaps Elliot was an undiagnosed schizophrenic.
We will never know.


I would say the SAME [undiagnosed schizophrenia] is true for many Tea Partiers. They think assistance is going to those who are unworthy of assistance!

"More telling still, almost all Tea Partiers favor generous social benefits for Americans who "earn" them; yet in an era of rising federal deficits, they are very concerned about being stuck with the tax tab to pay for "unearned" entitlements handed out to unworthy categories of people." - source

That is a brilliant assessment and perhaps five times more salient than any I heard elsewhere. Seriously, well done.
