Since I'm not going to click on an io9 science article, as I expect their science to be frustratingly misinterpreted or exaggerated, can anyone post a link to their source and/or summarize the reasoning behind subby's assertion in the headline?

I wish. Cats are much cheaper to entertain.

If women were cats, all you'd need to do is bring them home a few carboard boxes and some fish from the grocery store each day and you'd be voted the best husband in America.

Sounds nice.

Disappointed in the implication that culture isn't in itself an adaptation to not being able to pass information on purely through instinct.

Replace red dot with "clitoris," and we've set.

Yeah, but they're not competing over me...

Truth of the matter is that girls make guys go insane

Infatuation is a farking biatch

The most rational of men who has a good control over his emotions always falls victim to this.

RAWR? Paging  skyday to the thread.

I would much rather fist fight and then go have a beer than play the enduring manipulative backbiting mind games of female competition.

*Looks around at human society

So you are telling me that women are the driving and civilizing force behind progress/evolution?  Makes sense to me. If we didn't care about needing to impress women we would be still sitting in wood huts drinking beer in whatever the middle age equivalent of sweatpants was.
