Don’t look at me like that. It’s science!
But here’s the weird part. They also looked at the husbands’ sleep patterns as well. Get this, they found no increase in negative interactions with their wives whatsoever–even amongst those who suffered insomnia.
Hmm…upon reflection, this post’s title was based on an androcentric baseline. But isn’t it equally likely that the baseline is gynocentric?
So ladies, I owe you a Schrodinger’s Apology. Perhaps you’re not inferior after all. Maybe men are just superior.
Yeah…yeah, that covers all possibilities.
IN UNRELATED NEWS–I still have no social life.
Ha ha. Seeing that blurb gave me a real laugh. My mom and I have joked for years about the fact that sleep deprivation turns us into frightfully unpredicable maniacs. Meanwhile, our husbands are entirely stoic when similarly deprived. They might be slower, physically and mentally, but they just keep plowing thru the day, unchanged in demeanor.
But is stoic endurance necessarily an indication of superiority? The squeaky wheel gets the grease, you know. Guess who automatically gets up early when necessary on Saturdays, leaving the female wheel in bed so it squeaks less?
I don’t do it on purpose to scam a lie-in. It’s just The Way Things Are, and it’s funny to read that some science-ticians accidentally noticed it.
cheers and best to you, Mr. Superior Pants
Have a nice Saturday sleep in!
