We’re All Girly Men Now

Another of those newspaper stories that claim that we are all girly men now. This is wish fulfillment, nothing more.

FORGET a Porsche, an iPad or tickets to the World Cup. If you really want to impress your male buddies this Fathers’ Day, bring along a baby.New research says males have a better chance of bonding with each other when carrying an infant, as a baby’s presence immediately breaks down barriers.

The study, carried out among Barbary macaque monkeys, is among the first to show that infants serve as social tools and could explain why human fathers proudly brandish new babies to everyone they meet.

Everyone knows that Barbary macaque  monkeys like Opera and Barbara Streisand anyway, so this hardly means anything when it comes to humans.
