I really would need to read more about how that expirement was carried out before I would agree with the findings.

Heh. Yeah.

First, he didn’t survey “men.” He surveyed “undergraduates.” A group of young adults who are notorious for their gullability, and eagerness to be manipulated. Not to mention stupidity. Not at all representative of the human species.

Second, he presumes, probably with absolutely no reasons whatsoever, that being told your survey results are “feminine” will make men feel insecure about their sexuality.

I suspect there are many, many more errors in his work.

Was the survey carried out in the US? I’d rather have an Aston Martin or a Ferrari over some horrendous looking Petrol-guzzling urban Tractor.

Yeah, sorry, there doesn’t really seem to be a control group in this experiment.

Jaguar.  For some reason I just love those cars.

Of course, if I had big feet then I wouldn’t need one.
