    So... you`re telling me that they found that a previously discovered gene, known to be connected to a person`s predisposition towards risky behavior, is also responsible for another kind of risky behavior.

    Truly this is the scientific discovery of the year.

    Gambling, drinking, and boning? Sounds like a fun gene.

    Wow. That reporter is an idiot... right after he says how the article states that despite our genes, we all have the choice of who we sleep with he says "So what do you think, a scientific excuse to sleep around?"

    No moron, not according to what you said just 10 seconds ago.

    Riiiiight. Sensationalist reporting much?

    DRD4 is thought associated with risk taking behaviour and thrill seeking, and also thought to be a factor in ADHD. It`s certainly not the "slut gene".

    Hey, makes as much sense as "homosexuality is not a choice, your born with it!" ... I guess the same can be said for being a slut.

    I didn`t even have to watch the video to be able to count this as a "duh" idea. Of course some people are more disposed to wanting lots of sex. How is this research?

    PS Kegomatix, you`re an idiot. And you`re probably gay.

    It is not saying they are destined to be whores. But if you are a betting man, and you know that some women are whores. You would put more money on someone with the gene being a whore than someone who doesn`t have the gene.

    "DRD4 is thought associated with risk taking behaviour and thrill seeking, and also thought to be a factor in ADHD. It`s certainly not the "slut gene"."

    Because nobody could ever see a thrill or a risk in cheating?

    So it effects men and women equally but it`s the "slut" gene because it makes women act up, whereas that`s completely normal for men to do, right? Men can`t be sluts or whores, right?

    Uhh ok "slut" is the politically correct term for people who have sex with more than one person. >.> Aside from that, I think NewsSY should refrain from posting anything... period.

    Of course not.

    Woman: "I`ve slept with 5 people" She gets dirty looks.

    Man: "I`ve slept with 5 people" High fives and "Dude! That`s IT?!" all around

    OmgZelda:

    Yes that`s true, but who does she get dirty looks from? That`s right, other girls. Women love to say that there are double standards with the whole "slut" thing but they are the ones perpetuating and causing the "double standard."

    @Liquidglass
    Internalized oppression doesn`t mean that the oppressed group created the standards by which they are measured. It was not women that originated the idea that men can sleep with whoever they want, it was men. This idea became solidified and had to be reinforced. Eventually it got to the point where members of the oppressed group, in this case, women, reinforced the idea too. However, that doesn`t mean they created the oppression.
    I also would really like to meet some of the men you know if you only hear women call each other sluts.
