Why are you a dick?

Now, before proceeding further, it's important to note that we are all dicks at one time or another. And it's also important to note that I think there's a difference between being a bitch (all genders can be bitches) and being a dick (all genders can be dicks).

So, why? Why be a dick? Many of us can look back at recent dickery in which we engaged and probably excuse away the act by showing that it was an escalation. It wasn't dickery here, but by about here we're probably entering into the dick zone, and by this point here it was full on penis fencing, no doubt, but I was already in it, balls deep, so... whatcha'gonna'do?

But that's not always the case. Sometimes we dive right in, penis first. There's no build-up, there's no escalation, no foreplay; it's hardcore dickery from word go.

What's the economic model that explains this? Do Level 1 Dicks (dives in dick first) really see an outcome scenario that is better or benefits them more than a non-dick, or someone who just found themselves in the heat of the moment suddenly being a dick (we'll call that Level 2 Dick)?

Or does the economic model (to which I nearly always repair in any discussion about anything) not apply? Has intolerance to dickery forced Level 1 Dicks to the surface, kinda' the way religious extremism makes otherwise quiet atheists into vocal atheists for getting smooshed into a corner?

Are people able to be frank and honest about their dickery? Is it a topic that suffers too much from emic-only data loss?

What do you think?
