Another scientific breakthrough. Can a cure for cancer be far behind. Not that kind of behind.

Men see bikini-clad women as objects, psychologists say

Brain areas linked with handling tools respond to images of women in bikinis
They also remember these women’s bodies better than those of fully-clothed women
Future research could look at if women depersonalize men in certain situations

As a man, who has been known to not immediately avert his eyes from an image of a non-burkha wearing woman, allow me to translate.

Brain areas linked with handling tools respond to images of women in bikinis

Pornography and tool handling are obviously intertwined. If you give a man a hammer, he thinks that just about every woman should be nailed with it.

It is difficult to remember what one cannot see. On the other hand, with the proper tailoring much of the physique can be calculated by the astute anatomist.

It is scandalous that one could even suggest that these tools of arousal have minds of their own. To believe that, one would have to accept that Chippendales and similar clubs are not just visited by drag queens. These drag queens so good at make up, that the male strippers are unaware that the drag queens they are grinding on – are men. Clearly, the drag queen theory of arousal deserves equal time in the science classroom.

We are still left wondering if the line, She has great eyes, started with the burkha or with the bikini. Perhaps this is going to be used to justify new burkha laws. If the female arousal is shown to be true, in spite of what we all know about sugar and spice (the ingredients for little girls, not the sister act), there will probably be a demand for murkha laws.

Think of the benefit in being a mystery man trying to pick up a mystery woman, or mystery person, or person of mysterious gender. That isn’t a beer belly, I just like to carry my man purse in the front. No need to get a hotel room, since the burkha/murkha hides everything from view. You can now have intercourse right out in public and nobody will be able to prove it. You will have no idea if the person in the other urkha is who you think they are, if they are using protection, or even what their gender is. This will be the dawn of the Promiscuous Age. In the PA, no child will know who Pa is.

The participants, 21 heterosexual male undergraduates at Princeton, took questionnaires to determine whether they harbor “benevolent” sexism, which includes the belief that a woman’s place is in the home, or hostile sexism, a more adversarial viewpoint which includes the belief that women attempt to dominate men.

And that isn’t the headline?

If I have only two ways to view women – at the stove, barefoot and pregnant or as castrating termagants – is it a surprise that I choose a third option? Maybe Princeton screens out men with other views on their admissions paperwork.
