Britney, Lohan, Paris and Gondii

At last science has found why Britney, Lohan and Paris are irresistible to men. Why they have wardrobe problems. Why their behaviour seems to be outrageous. Why their behaviour IS outrageous. And why men become drooling ninnies as they walk by.

They have become infected with parasitic Gondii. Probably from eating fresh meat. I’m not sure what effect it has on men. My attention wandered before I got to the last two paragraphs.

As reported in the Australian;

A COMMON parasite can increase a women’s attractiveness to the opposite sex but also make men more stupid, an Australian researcher says. About 40 per cent of the world’s population is infected with Toxoplasma gondii. Human infection generally occurs when people eat raw or undercooked meat that has cysts containing the parasite.”The effect of infection is different between men and women,” Sydney University of Technology infectious disease researcher Nicky Boulter writes in the latest Australasian Science magazine.

“Infected women tend to be more outgoing, friendly, more promiscuous, and are considered more attractive to men.

“On the other hand, infected men have lower IQs, achieve a lower level of education and have shorter attention spans. They are also more likely to break rules and take risks … and are deemed less attractive to women.

In short, it can make men behave like alley cats and women behave like sex kittens.”

  1. Ah. How very, very useful! I’ve wondered about that.

  2. One notes, one does, that they don’t discuss (and perhaps didn’t even examine) the effect of the germ on women’s IQ’s. I find all dumb people tend to be more outgoing, friendly, and more promiscuous. Britney in a nutshell.

  4. Bloglily, were I of sufficient intelligence and attention span, I too would wonder about it. Alas, I am a male.

    raincoaster, Now that would not be a good evolutionary situation. It would mean that dumb people would have more offspring, thereby lowering the overall intelligence of the human rac- – - hmmm – I see what you mean!

    hmh, all I can say is that it was published in a serious newspaper and was not published on April 1st.

  5. Well now, the curse of the 21st century is clearly to be to assign scientific explanations where they are redundant. I think there are several possible reasons for the disparity, and none have to do with toxins. But what do I know?
