Claim: "Women who had lesbian tendencies were successful in evolutionary terms because men chose to reproduce with them"

Via Twitter:  In a paper published in the respected journal Personality and Individual Differences, Apostolou found many men would be happy going out with a partner who enjoys the company of other women.

“A lot of men indicate a desire to have a partner who also experiences same-sex attraction,” Apostolou told IBTimes UK.

“These kinds of sexual traits are more instinctive. It’s a mechanism that has been selected to serve a purpose — to make you reproduce.”

In an interview with Pink News, the professor added: “My argument in the paper is this: A considerable proportion of men desire same-sex attractions in women, and this is one possible reason why many women have such attractions.”

He received a vicious tongue-lashing on Twitter, where people slammed the study because it did not involve talking to lesbians themselves.

If he really wants to stir the pot, he should say he is open to interaction with Lesbian participants, provided they are not too dykey.

He didn't mention threesomes, foursomes, and fivesomes.

If he had, it would have had tons more credibility.

Not to mention the potential for 8 figure movie rights.
