Women Can't Think When You're Looking At Our Tits

Science.

Men were instructed to gaze at women's chests during a math quiz, is the gist of the thing.

the study examined how being visually “checked out” by a member of the opposite sex affected each student’s performance on math problems.

“We found that the objectifying gaze caused decreased math performance for women, but somewhat ironically we also found that the same women that were objectified also wanted more interaction with the person that had objectified them,”

Ironically? Getting the idea that someone finds you attractive is a distractingly pleasant little pellet of affirmation. One might seek out that good feeling again if one had a chance.

Just sayin'.

The paper also found that when roles were reversed, men's math skills were utterly unaffected by women looking at the men's chests.


Get the fuck outta here.

Unscientific MoronThought: men really don't give a fig if you stare at their heaving mams, right? Because they generally don't have any, and if they do, it's not a selling point.

This is sloppy. The researchers should have first made the effort to establish some comparable behavior that women could use to subtly show their interest in the male subjects. A bit of overly-extended eye contact, maybe.

Comments at the link are pretty good too.

Thanks to skinbad.
