← Charles Darwin investigated whether blondes have more fun

Lolas,

That post was filled with false assumptions. A few examples:

"Darwin wrongly assumes that men are the choosers, and women are passively waiting to get chosen."

No he doesn't. He does assume that men are choosers; which is absolutely true. There is nothing exclusive about it, but men are not completely indiscriminate.

The idea behind this is essentially: Do men find blondes more attractive. That is a perfectly legitimate scientific question which in fact has some support. It is much like "Do men find a 0.7 W/H ration attractive?" We can address and answer these questions.
