I’m Sorry, I Didn’t Hear You

Finally a scientist has discovered something worth repeating. Men do have trouble hearing and processing the female voice. Most women probably already knew this but just attributed to men not wanting to get up from the TV. Those wonderful researchers at Sheffield University in England (Yay Sheffield University England) have discovered that it’s the pitch and melodic nature of a woman’s voice that makes it hard to understand and not just men trying to ignore the constant nagging. So ladies, next time you feel that your man is ignoring you, just realize that your to dam* hard to understand and it would be better just to write it down and pass it to him.

The real story.

Wonder how much money they spent on THIS study?

This has an interesting evolutionary hook. Does this mean men, over millions of years, who can't hear the female voice, were more likely to survive?

Actually they were Intelligently Designed to ignore nagging. It is a survival mechanism though.

I saw that on OTB. It's hilarious. The funny thing is that people spent money to find out what any married person could already tell you.

Oh please! It's obvious the scientist HAS to be male. And let me guess...the researchers were all male too? *rolls eyes*

BTW, the reason men don't hear us is because of two little words: "selective hearing". That's ok though; why do you think women get headaches so often! HA!

I've heard of this "selective hearing" theory and I believe that it was debunked as junk science.

Lemme guess...it was a male who claimed it was junk science, eh?

So is Kate saying that men aren't using the music part of the brain, as the original article alleges? Come on guys ;)

Isn't it all just music to our ears?

good thing she typed her question instead of speaking it or we would have ignored her.

Women should be heard. They shouldn't vote, drive, hold public office, or be in the workplace...but they should be heard. :)

No need to shout, I'll just understand less.

Doc,

You are impossible! :)

Kate, The louder you talk, the less I hear you. Funny how that works.

Ouch, fitch! That hurt!

Doctor, Will you soon be submitting this post to the "Carnival of Misogyny"?
