Buht Wat Abowt Teh MENS?!

While perusing the Princeton University Press Anthropology catalog, I came across a book that induced such an extreme Liz Lemon eye-roll that I’m just now getting un-stuck.

This may as well be called Old White Men: In Case You Forgot, We’re Really Important! Sure, we may have power over the entire species, but when you consider our deep-seated anxiety about our perceived dwindling power and cultural relevance, we don’t feel quite as on top as we assume we should be. Our supremacy is the natural order of things, after all!

The description of the book includes the phrase “how older men may have contributed to the evolution of some of the very traits that make us human.” UGH.

Old White Men: the unmarked category BECAUSE SCIENCE.
