"[M]ale DNA — likely left over from pregnancy with a male fetus — can persist in a woman’s brain throughout her life."

"Although the biological impact of this foreign DNA is unclear, the study also found that women with more male DNA in their brains were less likely to have suffered from Alzheimer’s disease...."

See, we are good for something.

So, how many sons does a woman have to have before she enjoys lighting farts and browsing the power tool section at Home Depot?

Inga said...

Oh now that's interesting. I have four kids, three female, one male, so does not mean I have have a one in four chance of not getting Alzheimer's? o_O

Better drink more coffee.

I don't believe it. My wife has two sons, and she still has to ask for directions.

edutcher said...

So, is this proof of mutterliebe or just that women have men on their minds the way men have women on theirs?

Or that Sigmund was closer to the truth than a lot of people want to admit?

Inga said...

It's amazing that a male fetus can shed so much hormone in the mother, without describing the exact physical chracteristic, I will say I noticed a difference in my body when carrying my son.

Inga said...

As compared to carrying my daughters.

This explains why I'm a libertarian.

Science is like the coolest thing EVER! Something new every day. Or, the antithesis of conservatism.

Not enough knowledge to distinguish between cause and effect nor to isolate sources. Just enough enticement offered to qualify for a grant renewal. Otherwise, their announcement is premature revelation of their speculation. Not quite science. Not quite philosophy. An insight which will, hopefully, eventually, motivate an elevation of the human condition.

jimspice said...

n.n. you are stupid.

That's how they can pee standing up.

Libertarian Advocate said...

In fact jimspice, I'm guessing n.n. has pretty much pegged it exactly.

It would be great if it could be turned on.

at what point in the pregnancy would you have to abort to keep the foreign invader DNA out of your brain?

Whiskey has a good entry today on why Obama will probably win and the GOP is sunk at Presidential level. White women are traitors and just don't respond to nerdy, productive males. White women dig violent hip hop artists that smack women around. And they even have a growing fascination with the guys of the Taliban that behead women. So, what is a middle class White guy to do against that?

In school, if you wanted girlies, you had to get heartless and brutal, quick. None of those "dorky" middle class restraints. I had assumed that changed later in life, but it does not.

Single White women will put down 50 Shades long enough to put Obama back in office. They don't want some respectable family guy who talks budgets and logic ... borrrrinnnnggg. Eventually White guys, even the nerdy ones, will accept the new game. Then things will really get interesting.

I'll avoid responding to Spice-boy's personal attack on Conservatives.

If this is verified, it explains (at least in part) why single women overwhelmingly vote for the Socialist, while married mothers are less inclined so.

Junk science!! My mom had 5 sons and no daughters. The last years of her life were in the horrid fog of Alzheimer's.

Inga fka: Allie, You seem to be in a manic phase.

Dante said...

Oh no. Another reason the government has to get involved. Never mind that there is no proof, quick, the government has to do something to right this unfairness.

Inga said...

Spinelli, you seem to be stuck in asshole phase.

Do not make me remind you that you threatened to kill yourself if Meade deleted one more of your comments. Was that a normal thing to say, and who pray tell defended you here? Me.

You are now on my ignore always list.

If they cut my taxes, then we would have fewer war-on-womyn studies.

sydney said...

I wonder how it gets past the blood-brain barrier.

Nichevo said...

Hey Ann, maybe that's why those protesters keep telling you to get your head fucked; they're trying to help!

ndspinelli said...

Inga fka: Allie or Allie Oops..please say it ain't so!! If you don't take me off that list "I'm going to kill myself!" We know you're fucking clueless about the Constitution, but even dull/normal people are able to grasp satire. Keep burning those bridges. Three weeks ago you invited me to your daughter's wedding party. I make a ball bust comment about you being in a manic phase and you go postal. You connect the dots.

ndspinelli said...

Oh, I do plead guilty to having some asshole in me, we all do..I'm just honest about it.

jimspice:

Did you read the release? Their use of words including "likely", "can", "although", and "unclear" is material evidence that supports my conclusion. While their speculation may eventually be proven true, in part or whole, for now, it is only speculation, and premature presentation of their "findings" only serves one purpose.

I have no doubt women get 'male DNA' though sex and some of it finds it's way to their brain.

After all, lots of male, uh, DNA is transfered presuming they don't do 'safe sex'.
