Study Reveals What Women Are ‘Hard-Wired’ To Find Attractive. Feminists Not Happy. By Amanda Prestigiacomo.
Turns out, women are hard-wired to be much more attracted to male protectors who espouse so-called “benevolent sexism” than men who treat them as equals. And the best part: this is true even for hardcore feminists, scientists found.
According to a new study from University of Kent and Iowa State University scientists, which was published on Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, women overwhelmingly preferred chivalrous men who viewed women as needing protecting. Researchers Pelin Gul and Tom Kupfer classify this apparently “patronizing” behavior as “benevolent sexism” (BS), or well-meaning sexism.
The researchers suggest that women are hard-wired to overlook the “harmful consequences” of BS, “because BS mates are perceived as willing to invest (protect, provide, and commit),” reads the study’s abstract. Gul and Kupfer chalk this up to natural selection, a symptom of which women have yet to shake.
Maybe the feminists should ban biology?
