‘Sexist’ Natural History Museums Biased Towards Dead Males

Researchers have accused the world’s leading Natural History Museums – in New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Paris and London – of sexist bias.

They discovered this after counting the number of male specimens in the collection and discovering that they outnumber female ones.

Male birds outnumber female birds by 60 per cent to 40 per cent and mammals are 52 per cent male and 48 per cent female.

Although the researchers acknowledge the fairly obvious reason for this – collectors are attracted to “species with showy male traits like colourful plumage and horns” and thus tend to overlook the generally smaller, drabber female ones – they insist that this is an imbalance that needs correcting.

They claim:

 If collections are biased towards one sex, studies may not be representative of the species.

According to the study’s lead dead-animal-counter, quoted in the Manchester Evening News, this ‘bias’ needs ‘improvement.’

Right, right, it’s a bias. Maybe an unconscious one?

Dr Natalie Cooper, of the Natural History Museum, in London, who authored the report, said: “There is a tendency for the people collecting to want to get the largest grizzly bear or the animal with the most impressive horns.”

The animals were all collected between 1751 and 2018, but things didn’t improve over time.

Dr Cooper added: “Interestingly, we see no improvement. Even recent collections are biased.”

Damned nature, mostly making the males larger and brighter colored! Ban them!

    Thankfully, TEACH shows a much appreciated reverse bias (females >>> males) in his IAYS pics!

    “Male birds outnumber female birds by 60 per cent to 40 per cent and mammals are 52 per cent male and 48 per cent female.”

    Not that big a diff.

    And look at the news bias – picture after picture and video after video of Trump and his “showy male traits and colorful plumage” bit few of female staff members.

      Teach likes women, as do most of his viewers.

      But who cares, except Bolshevik Bunny? Look at what he said about Melania.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Melania used to take off her clothes for money. She was rumored to be an escort. Big deal. She married a rich guy, so all’s forgiven.

        Is Melania any less a whore than Rep Hill?

          Man, you are one hateful, cruel, misogynistic male chauvinist pig. I can’t believe you talk like that about women. Every time we figure you can’t go any lower you surprise us. Now you bad mouth a defenseless woman based on what she was “rumored to be”? Well, I guess if you can call Trump a rapist because of rumors you can call the First Lady a whore for the same reason. There is no decency in leftist lala land is there? ALL YOU HAVE LEFT IS HATE!

          Trump 2020 Let’s make the leftist hate go away

          Until you can prove the “rumors” (which I don’t doubt you just made up), the answer is, “Yes”.

          Trying to justify Katie Hill is a dead letter, but, since she’s emblematic of the freshman class of ’18, vote harvesting and all, I can see why you and your little troll friends have to sling mud in all directions.

          Tantrums are usually punished with a spanking. Yours is coming 11/4/20.

          And keep acting like the jerk you are. I still say a 50 state sweep is possible as long as Democrats act like you.

          And Hell’s Harem and Occasional Cortex and Schiff For Brains and Fatty Nadless and Pelosi Galore.

          Elwood. You have just lowered my opinion of you lots.

    Guys,

    As I said, I have no problem with a woman who undresses for money. I was comparing the actions of Representative Hill, whom was called a whore here, to the actions of Melania.

    You seem very upset about hearing the truth about Melania, yet commenters here repeatedly slur Democratic women, e.g., Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Kamala Harris and Katie Hill.

    • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

      Abu P. Dowd, aka Whimpering Little Sissybitch, is the only one here who referenced the term “whore” toward Hill and the President’s wife…

      Okay. So your complaint and statements against Melania Trump were posturing, and had not basis in your own personnel beliefs. You were willing to lie and exhibit some sort of faux outrage over something you have “no problem with.”

      I was comparing the actions of Representative Hill, whom was called a whore here, to the actions of Melania.

      Melania is not an elected official. Melania did not break the laws of the land. Despite your assertion that Hill was some sort of paragon of virtue who was doing the “right thing by stepping down,” she is now saying that she is the victim.

      You seem very upset about hearing the truth about Melania,

      Most people didn’t see “truth” in your post, but rather an attack on a woman for no cause whatsoever other than she is married to Trump. That’s the basis of your hatred.

      Hatred. There’s that word again.

      It is all the left has.

      By you, actually.

      You seem very upset about hearing the truth about Melania, yet commenters here repeatedly slur Democratic women, e.g., Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Kamala Harris and Katie Hill.

      Considering how many times we have shown your “truth” to be lies, our skepticism regarding the First Lady is inevitable.

      And those “slurs” are the real truth.

      The Hildabeast has been a liar, cheat, extortionist, and incompetent her adult life.

      Chlamydia banged her way to the top of CA politics.

      Mike Obama is a racist of the worst order.

      Ms hill is a promiscuous pervert and drug abuser.
