Science is a Man’s Best Friend June 28, 2018

One of the tenets of evolutionary biology is that if the size of an organ varies a lot across the population, it must not convey much of an evolutionary advantage. Thus, when studying size variation of female clitoris versus that of the male member, they found:

..evolutionary biologists have concluded that orgasms in women serve no function, and only exist as a useless by-product of the male orgasm.

Haven’t guys been trying to say this for centuries?

The article claims that this tenet has been challenged by the latest research showing that size variation of organs (nipples, in this case) does not necessarily relate to natural selection. That would invalidate the whole male/female orgasm thingy.

But I think I’m going to wait for corroboration before I embrace a scientific principle so at odds with my natural state.

Well, I just got back from swimming in the pool. And the water was cold.

This just proves that we really do need more women in STEM. That had to have been a bunch of dudes coming up with that conclusion.

What about the motivation to reward the … uh… giver with Sammiches?

I would contest this all by myself. I know quite a few people with brains the size of peas. Are brains useless from an evolutionary perspective, then?
