Power matters. Attractiveness matters. Here’s one way to know how much: the stereotype is of the creepy nerd loser skulking in elevators, waiting to accost, assault and rape women.

The reality: most non-familial sexual assaults and rapes (outside of prison) are perpetrated by those with power, “attractive” men in fraternities, on the football team, on the basketball team or part of jock or jock-dependent subculture.

Creepiness and unattractiveness are synonymous to most. I call this Marcottism after its primary exponent, Amanda Marcotte.
