A recent study shows that hurricanes named after females are more deadly than those named after men. The study also shows that this discrepancy is because people take hurricanes named after females less seriously. Is this evidence of sexism?
I think it is not "sexist" so to speak, it's just that people think of men as being more threatening (which in general they are- feminists don't try to say otherwise). I actually think this study is hilarious. Fix: Just name all hurricanes after men
I've always known that women are the most destructive force a man can encounter. ;-)
NO! But if they ever name one after my wife, you better hunt strong shelter!!!
The evidence is the evidence and is based on statistics. Therefore the evidence can't be sexist. The attitude of people in the path of gender named storms is what is sexist, on a fundamental level that most probably aren't aware of.
Maybe it's because the female hurricanes can't decide which way they're going to go, so it catches more people by surprise!
It could be that when warning systems were not as advanced that storms were deadlier & since they used to all have female names that it skewed the data.
Bahaha, that's pretty funny but no.
Did the tax payers found this study by any chance?
Lays name them after Greek pantheons... Hurricane Ares? Hurricane Athena?
Hurricane Andrew wasn't exactly a small-time drizzle....
At one time, they were all women's names. The change to alternating men and women names was in 1979.
I think we need to stop naming them after females. That will save lives and property. (Liberal Logic shout out)
I dunno. Seems silly. HOWEVER, if there's some truth to this, stopping naming them after women seems a simple solution right?
They need to start naming hurricanes names like Lakeshia or Lawanda.
Aw shit here comes LaQuisha!!
I think Dustin Lynch said it best in his song hurricane:
Great poll. Great link. Mmhmm.
You try writing a poll on pain killers!
Also a great person gave me this link :)
There's a hurricAne south of me at the moment and it's named after me! I can be excited because it will break up before it hits land so it won't do any harm
So when we lose California and Mexico we know who to thank :)
That's cool! I was just saying earlier that I couldn't decide if I'd feel honored or horrified to have a hurricane with my name, but if it's a harmless hurricane, you can totally be excited!
Is be amazed if I was a hurricane rlands. Same with MJSeals. Whatever science named "Hurricane Rainey" good to them
The rainey hurricane....redundant?
Evidence that someone has too much time on their hands
No. Everyone knows when a woman is pissed get the heck out of there.
LOL. I believe it's proof that men had better watch out.
All kidding aside, I still doubt it.
I don't pay attention.
And thank you for what you said❤️
