“All that crying is killing my boner.”

Thanks, WashingtonPost.com and like, every other website I’ve looked at today, for making me create the blog category “Rants” with this headline and article:  Women’s tears are a turnoff for men, study suggests.

While my initial question on reading the headline was “Who cared about this enough to study it?” I have to admit that the science of pheremones and how they work is pretty neat.  So now my question is “Who wrote those shitty, shitty headlines and framed this entire study as yet another way that women are alien and confusing to men and should probably worry whether they are being sexy enough even in the middle of weeping?”

Won’t someone think of the boners?

Listen, if you’re crying and suddenly find yourself thinking “Is this a huge turnoff to some man somewhere, either the one in front of me or men in general? Could my emotions be having a negative impact on a boner or boners?” Captain Awkward gives you permission to stop worrying about the boners, ok?  The boners will take care of themselves.  And hey, some guys are into the crying thing.  Don’t believe everything you read.
