I Think I've Been Insulted

Just read this from the Guardian:

Tall women are less likely to be broody but more likely to focus on their careers than shorter women, according to a study published by British psychologists today.

Denis Deady at Stirling University and Miriam Law Smith at St Andrew's University believe taller women have higher levels of testosterone during puberty, giving them more masculine traits such as assertiveness.

But the hormone might also influence their attitudes to careers and starting families, they report in the journal Personality and Individual Differences today, based on their research with more than 1,200 women.

So, basically, i'm broody and will have no career. Great. I'll just read some more Margaret Atwood so i can be really depressed.

Addendum: Look, i'm not saying i'm not broody and unambitious, cause i am. I'm just saying it's not very nice to say so, and it's not exactly good news to hear it's because i didn't have enough testosterone during puberty. Like being short wasn't bad enough. At least my shortness gives me the illusion of cuteness. So there!

So what, I'm supposed to be ambitious and not brood? This doesn't seem fair.
