What would James Dobson do?

He'd probably pass a law forbidding such crushes and then amend the constitution to outlaw non-supervised contact between females.

What am I talking about? This article in this morning's New York Times about the biology and social import of female crushes. It's pretty interesting stuff, though I wish they'd gone a bit more into the evolutionary aspect of it all. Without a more in depth discussion of the biology, the article seems to verge on (thought not quite extend into) tittilation. Not that it matters, I suppose; the article IS in the Style section of the paper.
