The 80% Rule: Men & Women

The following research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences confirms earlier original research sponsored by GBDH:

The men also appeared to be much less choosy. Men tended to select nearly every woman above a certain minimum attractiveness threshold, Todd said. Women's actual choices, like men's, did not reflect their stated preferences, but they made more discriminating choices, the researchers found.

GBDH has termed the "minimum attractiveness threshold" the "80% rule." In the eyes of a heteromale, a prospective female is already 80% attractive and fuckable simply by Being a Woman. No additional preening is necessary. Such a scientifically verified figure can put women at ease in the knowledge that they already earn a B- in the eyes of their counterparts even if their performance is a F. Likewise, but inversely, the male attractability score rises when males are "doing," performing, and Being (not Looking) Awesome. Men who do nothing are seldom fuckably attractive to the female human monkey. Granted, both men and women "must work it" in equally complex ways, but only men can be ugly and still get their fuck on, though women do have 20% wiggle room in this respect.

I find these performative and ontological questions of gender to be interesting for the division of labor it demands for both sexes respectively. Readers who've done extensive research in the homosexualist arts can contribute in the comment section.
