Modern-day females have taken on this tendency due to new economic freedoms and artificially widened pools of beta male supporters aka "beta orbiters." Theory goes that easy access to jobs and a favorable judicial system have given the average female the ability to choose mates based on raw genetic potential rather than through the market pressure of the economy. Often an extreme form of female narcissism. For instance a "badboy" in a Looksdigger's mind is simply a male model they cannot possess.
Looksdigging is cited by talkbackers as one of the more insidious results of new wave Feminism. Looksdiggers often submit themselves en mass to a few choice men while being unswayed by monetary offers from the remaining men. aka Pareto "20% of the guys @#$! 80% of the females"
Also blamed for increasing the pool of undesirable men known as Omegas and their involuntary celibacy - see "incel, PUAHate.com" Tangentially blamed for sudden upticks in violence. Theory goes women find hopping from choice mate to choice mate easier than men aka "cock carousel" thus encouraging violent tendencies in the unwanted men. see "serial monogamy, Hypergamy, aka hell on earth"
