Go on Onion parody this, I dare ya!
Who’d a-Thunk It? Boys and girls display gender-based toy preferences before they are old enough to be aware of gender and even in the absence of their parents? Got some good comments when I posted this on Twitter: a) “University professors — always the last to know,” b) “Childless Marxist professors shocked that boy and girls are different,” and c) “I’m guessing the fraction of parents surprised by this finding is roughly 0.”
Hahahahahahahaha. From the underlying article:
"Do boys prefer playing with trucks and balls, while girls prefer dolls, because they are socialised from an early age to play this way, or do their play habits reflect innate differences in interests between the sexes? In a world where there are major gender imbalances in participation in science, sport, politics and other areas, this is a controversial question. Evidence for very early sex differences in toy interests could arguably support the idea that the sexes are directed down different career trajectories not just because of cultural expectations or differences in opportunity, but partly because of their contrasting innate dispositions."
This comedy is tight! The entire "science" wrestling with this "controversial" question needs to be cut loose. These people are world class wankers. Hahahahahahahahaha.
I amuse myself!
