J.K. Rowling is a gift to Twitter.
She made that very clear Wednesday when she tweeted the absolute perfect response to a New York Times piece about scientists’ confusion over the evolution of the female orgasm.
The articles notes that the female orgasm is “not essential for a woman to become pregnant” and is “less reliable” than a man’s.
“The male orgasm has never caused much of a stir among evolutionary biologists,” the Times explains. “The pleasure is precisely linked to ejaculation, the most important step in passing on a male’s genes to the next generation. That pleasure encourages men to deliver more sperm, which is evolutionarily advantageous.”
The article states, “Dr. Lloyd thinks the best explanation for the female orgasm is that it hasn’t served any evolutionary purpose at all. It’s nothing more than the byproduct of the development of the male orgasm. The orgasm is to women, she believes, as nipples are to men.”
While Rowling might not have any advanced degrees in biology, she certainly hit the nail on the head when she summed the problem with insinuating that women don’t need orgasms in less than 140 characters.
Just when we thought we couldn’t love her more.
