Women Are Anti-Science

You know how women, particularly of the feminist persuasion, are always lamenting the fact that men see and treat them as objects? Well, it turns out that they're fighting a much stronger force than simple male chauvinism. To quote xkcd, "Science: It Works, bitches."

The nub:
New research shows that, in men, the brain areas associated with handling tools and the intention to perform actions light up when viewing images of women in bikinis.
So stop getting mad at me because I'm just using you. It's the way I was built.

Very funny.

So here's the problem I have with that... Just because the impulse is hard wired into you, doesn't mean that you can't learn to control it.

Women have all kinds of hard wired impulses which rein in on a daily basis.

We're not anti-science, we're just pro-intelligence.

Here's to overcoming your homo sapien impulses.
