A couple of hilarious pieces in The Guardian by some chick called Arwa Mahdawi, (must be an Englander!), caught my eye this week.
Researchers looked at nearly 200,000 heterosexual users and found that while men’s sexual desirability peaks at age 50, women hit their prime at 18. And then it’s all downhill from there apparently. Can I just remind you that 18-year-olds are teenagers, and so this study is basically saying that straight men don’t find women attractive; they like girls.
I wrote about this study when it came out last year but this feminist’s reaction to it is just so heartwarming that I had to share it. It’s a strange conundrum; on the one hand feminists go around loudly proclaiming to all who don’t want to listen that they don’t need or want men, yet they also get rather upset when men show preference for anyone but them. Sucks not to be wanted, right? But then, feminists are simply women who men either never wanted in the first placed or who they tired of.
