Study Concludes That Female Hurricanes Are More Dangerous Than Male Hurricanes

A controversial new study, published in the prestigious journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, has suggested that thanks to gender bias, hurricanes with female names are more deadly than hurricanes with male names. Through statistical modeling, the University of Illinois researchers concluded that hurricanes with female names cause around three times more deaths than those with male names.

Rather than this finding being related to the severity of the storms, the team hypothesized that hurricanes with female names may be perceived as less dangerous than those with male names. According to the study, this means that people are less likely to take protective measures such as evacuation during storms with female names and are therefore more vulnerable...

Hurricanes are born in the tropical soup of central Africa; so that zone should be considered the ultimate female dog for hurricane births.   laugh

Some are, but not all. Then again, with the little boy that's growing right now in the Pacific, we may not see many Atlantic hurricanes this year--they'll all start in the eastern Pacific, instead.

This "study" isn't good enough to merit even an IgNobel nomination. It should have also looked at cyclones and typhoons elsewhere in the world.

This is why we should allow sex change operations.  Think of the lives that could be saved.  Think of the kittens.
