Men... Take Heart...

Hmmmm... another study at the intersection of set theory and evolution ;-))) :
(There are apparently more beautiful females around than ever before for we unsightly male counterparts!)

The report begins thusly:
"Researchers found that attractive women have more children than their less attractive counterparts and that a higher proportion of those children are female.
 Once those daughters become adult they tend to be good looking themselves and so the pattern is repeated as women over the generations become steadily more aesthetically pleasing.
As attractive couples are less likely to have a boy than a girl, men, in contrast, remain as aesthetically unappealing as their caveman ancestors, the scientists claim." [emphasis added]
