According to a new study in which women were shown pictures of peers wearing dresses of different colors, subjects viewed those wearing the color red as sexual threats or romantic rivals. What do you think?

  • “That’s why, when I wear red, I am always careful to wear it in the form of a shapeless, oversized turtleneck sweater with a baseball cap worn sideways.”

  • “Isn’t that just like a woman to be subtly influenced by the unconscious evolutionary cues that affect us all.”

  • “Oh please. I can find something way more trivial than a red dress to feel threatened by.”
