'Men cleverer than women'


In my search to enrage the better half who never "put out." I found this little diddy of an article.

BBC NEWS Education 'Men cleverer than women' claim: "Academics in the UK claim their research shows that men are more intelligent than women.

A study to be published later this year in the British Journal of Psychology says that men are on average five points ahead on IQ tests.

Paul Irwing and Professor Richard Lynn claim the difference grows when the highest IQ levels are considered. "

I have known that for many years. Can you name me a woman who could compete with men on the field of genius? I can think of only two. Franklin being the only one of true worth.

Rosalind Franklin was a chemist and physicist working at Kings College in London in the early 50s. She was known for being an absolutely brilliant experimentalist. She was very, very dedicated. She loved science.

She gets no credit for the biggest discovery in Biology over the last 75 years and one of the biggest discoveries in herstory. (Even History)

Yes, yes, women have been short changed by men. I get it, ...they have been denied education etc. Still...I get a sneaking suspicion that women do not harbor the eccentricities required for going above and beyond the human plane.

I must ask where is your Aristotle, Freud, Marx, or Newton? Christ I would take a Larry Flint at this point. Men think in a linear, (ok I will say it) less emotional and circular manner. Let's see if any responses back that aren't a bit emotional.

By the way the claim about IQ is old, it's been around for a while. Anyone else read that crock The Bell Curve ?

P.S. Don't debate IQ --I know it does not measure the worth of woman or man and the brains they use to figure out the world. There must be a woman's studies major out there somewhere who can enlighten me.

Let the wrath ensue.....
