From the "Derr" files

According to sociologist Dr Satoshi Kanazawa, young female students are a vocational hazard for both male teachers and university lecturers.

And for gay male teachers and university lecturers? We don't exist, apparently.

Personally, I'll admit that the age of the average undergrad (18-21) indeed places them pretty much at the prime of their good lookingness. This has more to do with the laws of gravity than evolutionary biology* - bodies just do start to sag, downwards and outwards, from the age of about 30.

But it takes two to tango. Having spent a lot of time at both ends of the lecture theatre, I gotta admit that I've never been remotely attracted to one of my lecturers/tutors - ever.

Apparently, hetero females are different in this respect, in lusting after balding, badly-dressed middle-aged men. Strangely, there seems to be no law of evolutionary biology to explain this one.

* "They note the argument by evolutionists that men are genetically predisposed to find women in their late teens or early 20s most attractive because they are most fertile at that age. And this despite the "laws of civilised society concerning the age of consent and the minimum age for marriage" ".

Huh? Is he saying that men should be going after the 16 years olds instead (16 being the most typical age of consent and minimum age for marriage)?
