eraser8: Why DO women squeal when they get excited?


Having consulted the Internets I have come up dry. What I have personally observed is that women (from a squealing population) can be reliably made to squeal when presented with something they really like...

...no, not that. Put that away. I mean something spectacularly valuable or lovely, and certainly never anything that has nasty, wiry hairs sticking out of it. I've got squeals out of women with jewelery, concert tickets, and a trip to the beach. It's a consistently visual thing, as the squeal always comes at the sight of the thing, not just news of it. (Attempting to make blind women squeal would be an interesting test of this hypothesis.)

Looking to animals, predators like dogs and cats observe stony silence when presented with treats, which stands to reason, but foragers like hens cluck excitedly which seems to be associated with swarming behavior. One can easily picture a hunter-gatherer woman squealing at the sight of a fruiting tree, which would prompt the other cavebiatches to set upon it and pick it clean like piranhas while squealing and scaring the shiat out of everything within earshot. Well, maybe. Best guess.

Sororities and Fraternities are largely for teenagers who, after leaving high school, figured out that in the real world nobody actually gives a damn about their social life. With their reality at risk of being shattered like so much glass they quickly find a place to continue the delusion for a few more years.

I hate sororities/frats as much as the next guy but I am certain that was a gross over-generalization. A lot of them are less about the social shaming/rape/hazing/etc. and more about charity events etc. now (mostly as a result of being busted for the other stuff, but still, progress).

This is a serious question, by the way.

I have no explanation for that behaviour. It's a mystery, much like why men collectively yell at athletes when watching the game on TV.

Oh, sweet Jesus, I just realized I do this, too. And, I cannot explain why I do it.

*hangs head in shame*


Well to be fair women always talk to us like we are listening too.
