This is going to be another one of these studies that everyone argues about because they simply do/don’t like the results:
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.
Their research was based on IQ tests given to 80,000 people and a further study of 20,000 students.
Then again, there is always the possibility that Amanda Marcotte was one of the subjects, and she just dragged down the female scores.
I should probably note that I don’t have any opinion on the study, as I haven’t read it. I am sure, however, that people on both sides of this debate will be a hootin’ and a hollerin’, as is always the case with stuff like this. And, I am absolutely convinced that some idiot feminist somewhere (probably Amanda, even) will claim that my linking to this story is proof positive I believe it and that I hate women.
*** Update ***
As predicted, the village idiot delivers:
Boy, it didn’t take long for the gleeful fucktards who pray that science will make them believe they’re smarter than women when anecdotal evidence falls so heavily against them to eat crow today.
Like I said. Dumbest persyn on the Intertrons, and a pathological liar, to boot.
