I love how science reinforces the most knuckle-dragging, politically 
incorrect stereotypes:

"Similar studies, including one by the same team, have looked at 
differences in mitochondrial DNA, which we inherit from our mothers. 
They found little regional variation because females tended to move to 
their husbands."
