    When I first read “Period Underwear”, I pictured Victorian bloomers and thought “How racy could that be?”

    Then I read the actual article…

    You know, I remember getting my extra eye teeth out along with my wisdom teeth.

    So I am just going to nope nope nope nope my way as far from that article about growing extra teeth as is humanly possible. D:

    Really? Men are threatened by smart women? Or is this one of those evopsych ‘studies’ that doesn’t bother to actually interview real people and consists entirely of “If I can prove this might have been advantageous at some point in the past, then it explains some aspect of human behavior that isn’t really normative but let’s pretend it is.” so popular on the Learning Channel before they decided reality TV stars were the modern-day aristocrats?

    Obviously, if the headline had referenced the second half of the article about men not wanting to be around/date intelligent women (except when they do), the clickbait potential would have been reduced too much.

    wow, men don’t like dating intelligent women. Generalization much? My so is very intelligent and we are happily in love.
