Image  Plenty, apparently. When will people learn? Women need to be taken seriously.

A study just published by  Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that more people die in storms named with female names than die in male named storms. The study concludes that people don’t take female named storms as seriously assuming that they won’t be as fierce/strong/destructive even if they have the same strength rating at male named storms. Who has not suffered a woman scorned? Get real people. How can you be sexist about storms?. Females might not be as overtly destructive; we tend to be much more subtle about these things. But the damage caused can be considerably more serious and destructive than a sudden outburst preferred by many of our male counterparts. Just saying. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capital-weather-gang/wp/2014/06/02/female-named-hurricanes-kill-more-than-male-because-people-dont-respect-them-study-finds/
