And other news.
The science. Emphasis added:
Anthropomorphism in impressions of animals is commonplace, and this generalization from humans to animals is one example of a broader tendency to generalize from adaptively significant categories when judging specific exemplars. Although anthropomorphism may lead to unlikely or incorrect judgments, it fostered accurate sex-differentiation of macaque faces due to an appropriate generalization from the sexually dimorphic cues that distinguish human male and female faces to macaques. As predicted, Koreans performed better than Caucasians in sex-differentiating macaque faces, a difference mediated by Koreans’ greater use of sexually dimorphic eye height cues. These results extend and disambiguate evidence of East Asian superiority in sex-differentiating human faces. Whereas an own-race advantage might explain the previous but not the present findings, both can be explained by East Asians’ keener sensitivity to sexually dimorphic cues, perhaps owing to the greater subtlety of such cues in East Asian faces. Implications of this sensitivity for other cultural differences in person perception are discussed.
East Asians (except perhaps for Yukio Mishima) are better at distinguishing sexual dimorphism because they have to be. Since they have so little sexual dimorphism of their own, East Asians have evolved to be able to discern the smallest of sex differences, so they can eventually find a mate and reproduce. Hence, I quote: “Koreans performed better than Caucasians in sex-differentiating…These results extend and disambiguate evidence of East Asian superiority in sex-differentiating human faces” and now the reason – “owing to the greater subtlety of such cues in East Asian faces.” Subtlety indeed! Then there’s the body.
Just wait until all the sniveling Millennials and Zoomers come back from the “Spring Break” (some going to Europe), back to the hallowed halls of academia, to the colleges and universities, the law schools, the graduate schools, the medical schools, and all the other bastions of “higher education.” Just wait until all those collected coronaviruses are unleashed on the American public. Expect academic campuses to be new epicenters of infection, spreading to the surrounding local communities. Have fun!
MemeWarVetThe biggest takeaway from this whole to-do is that Chinese people eat bats. Otherwise it’s a big nothingburger.
Type I stupidity at its finest.
Nothingburger one. It’s spreading…coming soon to a town near you.
Nothingburger two. CHINESE bioweapon?
Nothingburger three. China fighting an undeclared war on the UK. How are all those “British Asians” doing these days, eh Silkers?
By the way, I’ve heard from various correspondents in different parts of the USA of some unusual military activity in their areas over the past week or so. Practice makes perfect, I suppose. Have fun! Meanwhile, have you noticed that mainstream articles on Yahoo have now been advocating prepping? Fun, fun, fun! Thanks, China!
UFOChinese people are really lunatics.I’m not really one to judge other people’s cultures and beliefs but they just seem moronic. I’ve never seen such a dull intellect and curiosity. The nice thing about mass immigration is that we get to see the average Chinaman – not just the super genius ones which used to cause us to hold all of China in high regard.I would completely cut off immigration from Asia. They are just too alien to us. Jews and Muslims, as well as Africans are far more understandable, to me at least. We don’t need any of them but Asians just creep me out, especially non-Muslim ones
Battle of the Ladogans! The epicanthic competition! Dueling chopsticks! German vs. Swede – what will Der Movement do? The fetishists in anguish! Oh the humanity!
This is Asia. Very cognitive, very elite.
Why HBD makes you stupid, but also means you’ll conquer Der Movement.
Me make joke
Me give virus
So you croak
We’re all safe now! Pray to Jaysus and we’ll be immune! Hallelujah!
Milady ages gracefully. One needs some distractions after hitting the wall, eh? Sounds like a thirty year delayed reaction, though.
It would really be a loss for me if I let the pressure overtake my possibilities…
Certainly! I mean, she’s about to cure cancer and discover the secrets of the cosmos, so we can’t let all that pressure interfere with those possibilities now, can we?
But, but, but…Joan of Arc? Is Hampton “crazy and bitter?” The “paranoid style!”
How many Alt Right Whiteys have been invited to the White House to meet the “sincere man of genuine greatness?”
Are you noticing that the greasy inept afrowops are floundering around helplessly with the China Plague in Italy? Hysterical gesticulating is not a plan. And, no, there’s no truth to the rumor that Schettino will be Italy’s coronavirus czar – dagoes to the lifeboats!
