Gaze-tracking Study Apparently Confirms Everyone Really IS Staring At Your Chest
CBS Philadelphia ^ | October 29, 2013 | Chelsea Karnash

LINCOLN, NE (CBS) – A new study has confirmed something women have been complaining about for years.

The research, out of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and published in the Springer-published journal Sex Roles, essentially corroborates the belief that people tend to focus more on the breasts and figure of a woman when analyzing her appearance than they do on her face.

According to researchers, the study was the first ever to use eye-tracking technology to examine the glances of men when the “ogle” or “check out” women, whereas previous research had used only women’s self-reported experiences.

After monitoring how the gazes of 29 women and 36 men from a large Midwestern university reacted to images of the same group of female models with various body shapes, scientists concluded that participants focused more on the female’s chests and figure when asked to evaluate their appearance than they did on the women’s facial features.

Of course, this is truer of some women than others.

Women started complaining when they were told to start complaining, two generations of females have been artificially shaped and conditioned and sensitized (militantized), as other people have been trained and conditioned and sensitized (militantized)on race.

I’ll add, that as with so many things, the militanized hyper sensitivity (condemnation of looking) coincided with the aggressive promotion of breasts by women, that we didn’t see before.

“But perhaps what’s most interesting is that women also tended to objectify other females in the same way that men did. They, too, spent more time focusing on figure than face.”

Rut-roh women are pigs too.

What sickens me is women that “show their cleavage” all the time. Not because they do so. But because by the time they turn 40 the area from their neck to thier mid chest has had so much sun damage it looks like george harrison’s plumbers crack. It is not flaunting what you got. But knowing when to flaunt and not to over flaunt.... I hardly ever show cleavage but when I do it is a special and appreciated thing.

Oh and blame us for enjoying the perfume.

Frankly if we were saying their tits are the same visual stink as poop, they would call us sensitive muslims.

This is such communist hypocrite provocation horsesh!t. These women do not give a crap but want others on their toes. The only ones these feminsists respect are muslims throwing the same narcissistic sociopathic tantrum at them.

This is again historicism of portrayal of past wrongs of men.

Aw fer cryin' out loud! Women wear provocative clothing baring half their stuff, then they complain. Well, I'm here to tell you - they DON'T complain when it's a "hot-looking" dude. They're upset because ALL men are looking.

Ladies: They're not freakin' laser-guided precision missiles; they're breasts, and if you show them off, we will be looking.

I want to know how much of my tax dollars were used to fund this ridiculous study.

So many of these have reults that would be obvious to the blind, deaf and dumb.

Yet “researchers” find some way of getting a grant to study them.

I swear if I could write a grant request well enough, I could get money to study the mating habits of one eyed, broken legged fleas. Or a grant to study the effects of pouring gasoline on a fire.

Most women were raised wrong as they were treated like useless princesses, and as such they learned from their mothers that their main pastime should be complaining.

My mom was a salt of the earth farmer’s wife, I was raised right.

*** the study was the first ever to use eye-tracking technology to examine the glances of men when the “ogle” or “check out” women,***

What a waste of money! Simply look at the movie posters and pulp fiction magazine covers for the last 100 years! Tests showed they had FOUR SECONDS to catch your eye, pull you in, and make the sale. So what did they use to grab your eyes?

Several years ago I was in a Dr’s office looking at a hunting magazine. As I flipped through it my eye was STOPPED DEAD by an artist illustration of hunting. I quickly turned back to it. It was an article on women who hunt, the illustration showed a woman, from behind, in tight jeans in the prone position shooting a rifle, and the eye grabber of the illustration was...her hinder parts!

The illustration worked as planned.

BELLES OF SOUTHERN BELL
Recorded by: Del Reeves

[1] There’s a Southern Bell Telephone Company in our [5] town
And ever’ afternoon, I’m right there hangin’ a-[1] round
Them telephone operators walkin’ up and down that [5] street
Any fool can figure out what I’m there to [1] see; Oh! I’m

CHORUS
Watchin’ the Belles Of Southern Bell go [5] by
Swingin’ their hips an’ rollin’ them pretty [1] eyes
Them high heels clickin’, make me start a-kickin
My heels up to the [4] sky
[5] Watchin’ the Belles Of Southern Bell go [1] by.

Well, the google-eyed traffic cop out in the middle of the street
Lookin’ ever which-a-way, except where he ought-a be
With both arms wavin’, givin’ ever’one the go-ahead sign
You can tell directin’ traffic’s not on his mind; ‘Cause he’s-a

CHORUS

They say that the hem lines’ gonna get shorter this year
This sounds like mighty sweet music to my ears
I wouldn’t have you thinkin’ that I’m the wrong kind of guy
I just sorta got an eye for the finer things in life; And I’m-a

CHORUS

TAG: Yeah! I’m Watchin’ the Belles Of Southern Bell go by.

***
And then there is this.

Standing on the corner watching all the girls go by
Standing on the corner watching all the girls go by
Brother you don’t know a nicer occupation
Matter of fact, neither do I
Than standing on the corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls go by.

Standing on the corner watching all the girls go by
Standing on the corner giving all the girls the eye
Brother you can’t go to jail for what you’re thinking,
Or for that “M-m-m-m” look in your eye.
Try standing on the corner watching all the girls
Watching all the girls, watching all the girls go by

Scientific American had an article on this in the 60s or early 70s. The researchers used some sort of reflector (or reflective feature) to record the direction of the person’s gaze. Same conclusions IIRC.

It is like a Broadway production. Oftentimes the only time you get sick of it is after you marry one and have to endure the prep time.

I will never do that again, guaranteed.

An email I received yesterday [I’m paraphrasing, of course]:

A man sends an email to his boss:

Boss, I’m going to be out of work for a while; I’ve been beaten up by a woman.

I was in an elevator when a buxom young thing entered the car. I couldn’t help but stare at her ample bosom.

“Go ahead in push 1, she said”, so I did.

I don’t remember much after that. But, the doctor says I should be recovered enough to return to work in 4 to six weeks.
