[AGGRESSIVELY SINGS ALONG WITH THE WORLDLESS GAME OF THRONES INTRO]
So I was doing research earlier this morning for a paper on racial disparities in health and the use of race as a proxy for ancestry in biomedical research when I came upon an article discussing HPV infection rates between races. The explanation, however, had nothing to do with genetics, but rather - “sociocultural differences in sexual habits.”
“sociocultural differences in sexual habits”
Does anyone else find this phrase mildly amusing or is it only me?
It could’ve very well been phrased as “different patterns in sexual behavior” or something similar, but this way is sounds like it’s trying way too hard to be anthropologically profound.
