From Jedidiah Palosaari:

Re: Is humor tied to male aggression? (Dec. 21): One wonders if the same would be true of humor in response to another type of activity. Not that women can’t be involved in sports, but they are currently more often done in most cultures by men, and so men have more association with them. I wonder to what extent that skewed the results, as men would be more likely to have in their minds a way it “should be done”. I’d like to see a similar study done with something mildly socially aberrant that is more traditionally and more universally female, and see what the results were.
