I must have a case of the terminal stupids, but this is something I don't
By the time they reach their late 20s and 30s, men are far more likely to be
single than women, according to reseachers from Edinburgh University in
Scotland. Almost 20 percent of men between the ages of 25 and 44 are single,
compared with just 6 percent of women, reports Medical News Today.
I'm going to make the outragous assumption that there are about the same number
of men as there are women in that age bracket. In truth, there are probably
fewer men, we die sooner than do women.
So: Let's say we're looking at a sample of 100 men. 80 would be married. Now
look at 100 women. 94 would be married, one would assume, to 94 men. For god's
sake, to whom are they married? It's like looking at the number of female sex
partners men have, on average, and claiming it's greater than the number of
partners women have, on average. Can't be true unless the men are using, oh,
female sheep or something.
When I was (a lot) younger I actually published peer reviewed articles that
were I thought at least statistically valid. Now I'm not sure.
