I have been pretty disappointed with a handful of things I have read from SA in recent years.
They present very interesting articles but the presentation of the studies seem more persuasive than inquisitive. It is one of the many things that drive me a bit crazy in science communication and the media. Magazines don't show people how to pose questions, they often spoon feed oversimplified answers to poorly constructed questions….an article like this raises far more questions than it provides answers. IMHO, that is how the article should be written – "This study says college men often pursue friendships with women out of a sexual agenda. But is that enough to confirm that men and women cannot be just friends? What else must be considered?"
Any article on a qualitative study should not be providing a solid "yes" or "no" about anything so general.
