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.

Ugh... just... ugh... It`s difficult to express just how wrong this report is. If you`re interested, go read the actual paper.

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."

"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?"

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

A Human can never blame genetics. It is a part of sentience to reject biological heritage.

The slut gene should be called the awesome gene, but has a less impact on women? Not very awesome.

Also, this doesn`t explain the supposed theory that the quite nice naive girls are the biggest sluts of all.

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.

its not an excuse; you may have more of an urge to do it, but you still have control over whether or not you act.

"Gambling, drinking, and boning? Sounds like a fun 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?

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.

So, basically it`s saying that they are predestined to be whores due to their genes

blaming it on your genes is the first step to eugenics. It`s just who you are

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.

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.

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".

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.

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.
