Study: the Pill Changes Women's Taste in Men.

Alas, not in a way that *I* would like.

From Reuters:
Psychologists at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland asked 1570 young women on oral contraceptives and 1325 women who were not, to choose between healthy and less healthy male faces. The same face was presented twice, one image glowing with apparent health, the other looking pale and unwell.

All women preferred the healthier face on average but those on the Pill were significantly more choosy. "Women using oral contraceptives expressed stronger attraction to apparent health than women not using oral contraceptives," the researchers reported in the Proceedings of the Royal Society.
What's interesting here isn't the the Royal Society's findings.

What's interesting is the implications for rednecks.

See, women on the Pill go for healthier looking men. That means women off the Pill are more willing to "settle" for men with mullets and missing teeth.

Thus, it also explains why redneck families have so many more children than non-redneck families.

I'll admit, this theory is not PC.

But it certainly explains *my* family.

Crap, guess I'll have to give up the crystal meth now. Don't want any tooth decay problems.
