interesting read. i don’t know if i read much into those studies done by scientists. you never know how you’ll actually react in real life. the part about how women become more racist when ovulating is pretty wild.

Interesting article.  However, correlation does not always equal causation and I’ve heard about studies that had quite different conclusions.  For example, I read a study once that said ovulating (i.e., fertile) women were shown to be more attracted to “rugged” looking males (like Russell Crowe) than “pretty/feminine” looking males (like Leonardo DiCaprio), and when they are not in a fertile stage they are more attracted to the Leonardo types.  You would think that’s counterintuitive to the “women naturally are able to avoid rape when they are fertile” argument from the article the OP posted, since rugged males are more associated with danger and masculine power over women.

Did you guys see the link to the article about how men’s “mushroom shaped” body parts evolved to remove other guys’ sperm from a woman?  It’s a wild theory but I guess it kinda makes sense too…
