Our implicit biases have been uncovered once again in a brilliant example. If a hurricane is named a female name, people are less likely to think it will be dangerous, so will be less likely to prepare for it...and consequently twice as likely to die!

This is not necessarily sexism in a bad form - it could simply be that people associate males with aggressively and females with emotions related to safety. A nice illustration of why policymakers need to understand more about human behaviour.
