How to be a good wife in the 1950s

It’s fake.

It’s so obviously fake.

But as far as Photoshops go, it’s entertaining.

It amazes me how many men think women were spineless until…. what, the 80s?
Women have never been push-overs, I’ve never read that.

And how great is it that men think a pretty woman must be simple?
Really, if all it takes to fool you is a floral print dress… so much the better.

Men can’t tell when a woman’s being sarcastic


I think we found why those 50s housewives were so obedient and incompetent.

omg really wtf go away no audrey

My whole life is flashing before my eyes.

I never knew.

I bet they also call her a bitch for being more emotionally intelligent.

inb4 muh standard IQ

  1. 3% average sex difference is non-sig in social science and IQ correlates to brain interconnection/white matter volume, than overall size/grey matter. Guess which sex wins? [see end]
    Meanwhile, who’s making dem IQ GAINS, bro?
    Don’t let an inconvenient fact get in the way of your fallacies.
  3. To quote myself… “But overall, mathematically, the average woman is smarter than the average man because men have a lower average IQ.” It’s sum total/N, those studies you tend to cite reject all the male retards from the sample, biasing the average. “I guess I must have a secret Y chromosome because I understand maths?”

The higher values of FA and lower values of RD suggest that intelligence is associated with higher myelination and/or a higher number of axons particularly in men.

Smarter men have effeminate brains.

Size means nothing. It’s ironically about density.

the researchers concluded that relative brain size was the most significant predictor of success in the task.

Differences in brain size within a species, such as humans, are relatively small, making it difficult to tease out the effects of brain size and the effects of other factors. For instance, the difference in intelligence between an individual with, say, a brain that’s 1,100 grams and one that’s 1,400 grams (which could be found in humans) is confounded by other variables, including differences in density of neurons, other structural brain differences and socio-cultural factors.

Brain size seems to have nothing to do with scores on standardized intelligence tests, according to a brain-scan study of young children.

They found a strong correlation between the integrity of the white matter and performance on a standard IQ test.

“It also changes how you think about what IQ is measuring,” says Wedeen. The research was published last month in the Journal of Neuroscience.

If white matter is linked to both processing speed and IQ, this raises the question: is intelligence merely a function of how fast your brain works? Previous research has linked processing speed to IQ, but the tests used in the study are measures of general intelligence, including verbal skills, math, and logic. “Processing speed plays a big part in how intelligent you are, but it’s not the only factor,” says Shaw.

The new study is among the first to link a specific neural architecture to IQ in healthy individuals. “Most people have focused on grey matter,” says Shaw. “This is good evidence we should be looking at white matter as well.”

Thompson and his collaborators also analyzed the twins’ DNA, and they are now looking for specific genetic variations that are linked to the quality of the brain’s white matter. The researchers have already found a candidate–the gene for a protein called BDNF, which promotes cell growth. “People with one variation have more intact fibers,” says Thompson.

It was a fine thing if one was dumb and had no alternate prospect. Otherwise it’s a damn waste of a good brain (bad for everyone). The majority of their homeworking hours were taken up on things now supplanted by electronics – beating rugs or running errands, there are documentaries about the way it took up a whole day by hand, so we can never go back without a total grid down scenario.

Similarly, dumb men should be banned from most occupations. There’s no shame in manual labour.

I wonder, if it is as “easy” as some males say, why they don’t want to become house husbands?

If it is truly ‘doing nothing’, ‘woman’s work’ aka easy and they’re hamming it up? Where are the guys flocking to it, then? Aren’t men supposed to be the lazier sex? If you’re twice as capable, and could do it in half the time?

Methinks they might be kidding themselves…

Maybe I lost my pocketwatch and I'm secretly a Time Lady.

JK no one would marry them.
