Captain Obvious Strikes Again!

Captain ObviousRemember that post from a week or so ago when I linked to an MSN article about silly academic studies? Well it seems that Captain Obvious has struck again!

According to this study by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, girls that post pictures of themselves on personal web pages or social networking sites are (wait for it…) far more likely to be contacted by strangers than either boys or girls that don’t post their pictures.

I suppose that researchers need actual hard evidence of this to confirm their studies or justify their budgets or whatnot… but come on people! You mean dirty old men might stop and leave a nasty\unwanted message on a teenage girl’s MySpace profile, but that same person would skip over boy’s profiles or profiles with no pictures? Really? Seriously?

Color me shocked. (/sarcasm)
