More Silly Research Reporting
Holly Combe // 10 April 2008
Following the bollocks that Samara reported on a couple of days ago, is the Daily Mail’s report on a study apparently claiming that women with big eyes and small jaws are perceived by men as being more into the idea of a one-night-stand. Meanwhile, men with softer features are viewed by women (yep- all pretty heterosexist stuff) as a better bet for commitment.
As ever, the Daily Mail agenda came flooding through:
It is thought the phenomenon has its roots deep in evolution, with men who sow their wild oats being more likely to pass on their genes to the next generation.
Women, on the other hand, gain little from being free with their favours and prefer stable types who will provide for them and their children.
