Men: if you're funny, women will let you do sex to them, but only a couple of times. Ladies: if you're funny men will assume you're easy. That's how it works.
"Our study shows that it's not lack of ability or differences in ability that orients females to pursue non-STEM careers, it's the greater likelihood that females with high math ability also have high verbal ability. Because they're good at both, they can consider a wide range of occupations."
"[R]esearchers found that men who reported more sexual compulsivity or risk-taking gazed longer than other men at the breasts and hip-waist regions of 20-year-old women — but not at those regions in girls or women older than themselves. In other words, their gaze seems to give away their higher-than-average sexual interest. And the longer gazes are confined to women they find sexually interesting (based on age). 'We argue it's a high-level mental process which guides this unique gaze pattern,' Guo said."
"Can heterosexual men and women ever be 'just friends'?" [SPOILER: The women can.]
"Does being beautiful on the outside make you beautiful on the inside? Not necessarily, although attractive women are often thought to have more desirable personality traits in the eyes of strangers, new research shows. In actuality, beautiful women might be more likely to have some less attractive values, favoring conformity and self-promotion over independence and tolerance, the study found."
"Maybe men are happier before adolescence because their testosterone levels are lower." —Why are women happier than men? Before all you broads jump in to start telling me that they're not, let me just alert you that Science is on the case and has discovered that "low expression of the gene monoamine oxidase A (MAOA) is associated with higher self-reported happiness in women" and that testosterone "may cancel out the positive effect of MAOA on happiness in men." So the next time you see a happy little boy running down the street or playing in the park, remind yourself that soon enough he will be a sad and [...]
"A provocative new study suggests a male leader is judged more harshly than a comparable female leader when they make an error…. In the new research, Penn State’s Christian Thoroughgood discovered that if the leader is a man making a mistake in a man’s world, he is judged more harshly than a woman making the same mistake in a man’s world."
"In the corner office and the boardroom, women are 'leaning in.' But there's one place where they're still wracked with anxiety and shame. " —Can you guess where it is? IT'S THE BATHROOM! Where shitting happens! Shitting BY WOMEN! I may need to lie down for a minute.
"An article on Page 66 this weekend about five young men who won the Ruth Lilly Poetry Fellowship describes the group incorrectly. Though no women are included, it is not the case that the X chromosome is not 'represented in this year’s crop of winners.' All five men, of course, have an X chromosome paired with a Y. (The women have neither a Y nor a fellowship — just X X.)"
"For women, engaging in casual sex still carries a stigma, and the prospect of being judged dampens their interest in one-night stands."
"Men and women use different spatial memory techniques to find their cars in crowded parking lots, says a study published in Applied Cognitive Psychology. The research showed women relied more on visible landmarks and took substantial detours, while men were better at estimating distances and more likely to take a direct route to the vehicle."
"Today, many of the people who decide which reporters get to cover elections are women.The top editor of the world’s most respected news organization, The New York Times, is a woman. The top editor of Newsweek – still one of the nation’s most widely-read news magazines – is a woman. The top editors of AP and Reuters Thomson Digital – women. And let’s not forget Arianna Huffington…. All of which suggests pretty persuasively that it’s a whole lot easier today for women to get where they want to be in the profession. Which makes me wonder: could it be that at least part of the numbers disparity is because [...]
"Men are almost as likely as women to want children, and they feel more isolated, depressed, angry and sad than women if they don't have them, a new study says."
"Septa, for example, says riders shouldn't expect to hear a pin drop. 'It's the quiet car, not the silent car,' says Kim Scott Heinle, assistant general manager for customer service and advocacy. What helps is that conductors will hand 'shush' cards to riders who forget or didn't know the rules. The system lets conductors suspend quiet operations when needed, like before and after a sports event or during the Flower Show in Philadelphia, when many riders aren't regulars."
Men are better than women at multitasking. This report does not say why, but I suspect it has something to do with the fact that we have a lot of practice at not giving our full attention to things that do not interest us.
"In our expedition to Mars, let our healthy young males take along some healthy young females to serve as their sexual partners. (Of course it would also help if they could operate a radio transmitter and take dictation.) These women would accompany them quite openly for this purpose. There would be no secrecy about this. There would be nothing dishonorable about their assignment. They would be women of the kind we ordinarily speak of as 'nice girls.'" —Don't worry, this is from 1956. Nobody thinks this way now.
"It is a scenario familiar to long-suffering wives everywhere. Hopelessly lost on a country road, the man behind the wheel refuses to ask directions, grits his teeth and drives even faster into unknown territory. While women are more than happy to use all available resources to help them reach a goal, men will rigidly stick to their original 'system' – such as a map or set of directions – even though it has clearly led them astray. But while the reluctance of male drivers to accept any outside help certainly seems like pig-headedness, it may actually stem from a less macho cause: blind panic."
