Truths about Human Nature

Here are 10 truths about human nature:

  • Men like blond bombshells (and women want to look like them)
  • Humans are naturally polygamous
  • Most women benefit from polygyny, while most men benefit from monogamy
  • Most suicide bombers are Muslim
  • Having sons reduces the likelihood of divorce
  • Beautiful people have more daughter
  • Bill Gates and Paul McCartney have something in common with criminals
  • The midlife crisis is a myth
  • It's natural for politicians to risk everything for an affair (but only if they're male)
  • Men sexually harass women because they are not sexist

Some sound bizarre? Some sound politically incorrect? Check out the explanations in an article published in Psychology Today.

One wonders if the author of the article is a white, non-Moslem, middle aged male.
Great….the male midlife crisis is just human nature- a biological necessity to find fertile female pastures to plant seed…..because his wife in middle-aged !
And on that note we women don't really have pre-mentrual tension. It is actually due to the guys behaving like jerks on purpose in order to irritate us and therefore provoke an argument to rationalize the search for a fertile non-mentruating womb during those days ( preferably a blond with big knockers, blue eyes etc etc ).

Seriously though, the biology and evolution of behaviour fascinates me - be it somewhat at odds with the Judeo-Christian philisophy. Even polygyny has logic. Faced with the choice, it makes sense to prefer part of a strong wealthy man as apposed to a whole poor man.

I have heard conflicting evidence regarding the male preference of the blond bombshell. I heard somewhere that women with bushy thick eyebrows are prefered because they are perceived to have more hormonal activity.

Evolutionarily speaking,if reproduction is the pivot around which much of human bevaviour is explained, at this time we have no need for men at all. We just need a well kept sperm bank. Technology has not reached a level that can forgo the female uterus. If males become almost irrelevant ( just keep back the odd Brad Pit for a bit of fun) , and only females were left on earth, would we still bleach our hair blond, starve to stay thin and inject botox ? I reckon we would .
