Study: Men View Women In Bikinis As Objects.

The shocking, shocking revelations from NatGeo

Brain scans revealed that when men are shown pictures of scantily clad women, the region of the brain associated with tool use lights up.

And in a “shocking” finding, Fiske noted, some of the men studied showed no activity in the part of the brain that usually responds when a person ponders another’s intentions.

This means that these men see women “as sexually inviting, but they are not thinking about their minds,” Fiske said. “The lack of activation in this social cognition area is really odd, because it hardly ever happens.”

And the men who scored higher as “hostile sexists”—those who view women as controlling and invaders of male space—didn’t show brain activity that indicates they saw the women in bikinis as humans with thoughts and intentions.


Strange stuff! Looking at Keeley lit up the highly cognitive regions of my brain associated with heavenly bodies and the big bang theory.
