Which is probably why my head fucking exploded when I read Charlotte Allen's piece in the Washington Post this weekend titled "We Scream, We Swoon. How Dumb Can We Get?"
Not enough sarcasm in the world ... I just wish Charlotte would use her hands to bake pies, mop a floor and do laundry instead of writing tripe like this.
Here's an excerpt ... after which the misogynistic comments can commence:
"The theory that women are the dumber sex -- or at least the sex that gets into more car accidents -- is amply supported by neurological and standardized-testing evidence. Men's and women's brains not only look different, but men's brains are bigger than women's (even adjusting for men's generally bigger body size). The important difference is in the parietal cortex, which is associated with space perception. Visuospatial skills, the capacity to rotate three-dimensional objects in the mind, at which men tend to excel over women, are in turn related to a capacity for abstract thinking and reasoning, the grounding for mathematics, science and philosophy. While the two sexes seem to have the same IQ on average (although even here, at least one recent study gives males a slight edge), there are proportionally more men than women at the extremes of very, very smart and very, very stupid."
