Rebecca Watson’s talk at Skepticon 5, which made my sides hurt from giggling.
So, back in the day, men were hunters and women were gatherers…and now, men like museums while women prefer shopping…And the researcher in question noticed this on a trip to Prague. He went with some friends, and all the men in the group wanted to see cultural attractions and the women wanted to go shopping. And he was like, whaaaaa? [audience giggles] So he has determined that visiting museums is just like hunting, and shopping is just like gathering…ergo, SCIENCE!
In all seriousness, this stuff is only funny when I’m not daling with people spouting it as evidence of gender roles.
