@Black Pegasus: 1. Americans don’t consider it: we don’t give a crap about the UK. This “study” actually makes one consider why Queerty is not a reputable source for news, since it asks no critical questions and instead tries to extrapolate the results of this study incorrectly.
2. The study is bogus. 40 participants in one class at one school in one country? That’s called a self-selecting sample: white males who take sociology classes at this school may be already predisposed to this sort of thing. A valid sample would include males in different classes and at different colleges.
3. Cuddling doesn’t mean the same thing in the UK that is does in the US.
Completely misleading article, but par the course for Queerty who I guess thinks its reader base is too stupid to do the fact-checking that they will not.
