I would just like to point out ...

That when I, a gay dude—a person who does not personally possess a vagina or even a non-academic interest in the female contribution to human reproduction—have written about things pertaining to straight female sexuality in a politically-inflected and evolutionary context, I haven't attracted even a twentieth part of the condescention and scorn that shows up in the comments section of Context and Variation when Kate Clancy—an actual female person who has a frickin' Ph.D. in the evolution of female reproductive function—takes a righteous swing at the latest example of bad science in the service of sexism.

It's almost like there's something magical about having a penis.◼
