Hey, I see why people do this, it's kinda fun!

In the traditional manner of the internet, I am going to link to someone who is WRONG ON THE INTERNET, summarizing their position so as to make them sound absurd. (It wasn't hard.)

Oxford University and the FUTURE OF HUMANITY bring you 'Overcoming Bias*,' as thinkily explored by professional thinkinator, Robin Hanson:

Women complain about rape all the time, don't they realize they have it better than men? What's with that? Is it the wandering womb?

Stand back, ladies, we're doing SCIENCE!

I had no choice, Your Honour, I had to rape her for the SURVIVAL OF THE HUMAN RACE

Scientific expert Henry Higgens tells me you ladies like to be offended as amusement for your feeble minds!

Why don't nice guys like me get the girls?

(via coffeeandink, who you should investigate if you want actual intelligent rebuttals rather than shallow mockery.)

*And by 'bias' we mean REAL bias that affects PEOPLE, rather than stuff like chauvinism, m'kay?
