Today in science, we use misinterpretation to confirm high school gender stereotypes

A recent scientific study found that girls who discuss their personal problems with others might actually suffer from dwelling on those problems too much, which seems somewhat logical and worthy of further study (especially since boys did not show similar issues in the study).  Of course, various media outlets have been reporting on this story in an open-minded and completely honest fashion:

Somehow we went from "dwelling on personal problems is not ideal" to "girls at risk of talking too much".

On the other hand:
If it doesn't seem useful to teenage boys, it's safe to assume that it isn't useful to any males ever.  Yep, that checks out.
