Be The Ugliest Girl At The Party And Bad Men Will Leave You Alone

"Researchers studying a species of freshwater fish called the Trinidadian guppy found that females uninterested in mating with males chose to spend more time with fish more attractive to themselves, thus dramatically reducing harrassment and mating attempts from notoriously lusty male guppies." The Daily Mail, naturally, frames this as advice for how you can keep from getting groped at the office Christmas party, which seems remarkably unfair to your sexier friends, but I guess those pretty bitches have it coming, right?

Possibly worth noting that the Brits sometimes employ "to" where we use "than", as in the case of "more attractive [than] themselves." (At first I thought this implied guppy lesbianism and I was like … tell me more)
