I wondered if anyone passed this story along to Denis Rodman, or Boy George??? They must be ovulating all the time!Rrrowwr!
Ovulating women dress to impress
Females wear more jewelry, flashier clothes when they're fertile, study saysWASHINGTON - Women dress to impress when they are at their most fertile, researchers said Tuesday in a study they say shows that signs of human ovulation may not be as mysterious as some scientists believe.
A study of young college women showed they frequently wore more fashionable or flashier clothing and jewelry when they were ovulating, as assessed by a panel of men and women looking at their photographs.
“They tend to put on skirts instead of pants, show more skin and generally dress more fashionably,” said Martie Haselton, a communication studies and psychology expert at the University of California Los Angeles who led the study.
Ummm- This is a news story? Did someone get paid to do this research?
Women who dress to impress are sending out a signal that they want to procreate?
What? They're not just putting their best face forward? We dress up because the eggs are ready? What about all the women on Birth Control? Why are they wearing skirts and jewelry?
Is everyone at the Oscars ovulating? How about at church on Sunday? Or the Temple? Or a Mosque (wait- sometimes women aren't allowed in a Mosque)
And in the media, the women of child-bearing age are so skinny they can barely keep themselves alive, much less support life for a pregnancy! But they have on dresses and jewelry!
WHY DOES THIS MATTER???
Why did this article irritate me?
Because it's silly. And because women who are looking their best are being equated with their most basic biological function...they dress up because they want to carry a child.
And men dress up because they want to get lucky.
Oh- wait...I see it now...
Equality at last!!!
