1.) Skepchick Magazine will be late this month. Again. I suggest you consult with your own trusted psychic or spirit guide in order to console yourself until it comes out.
2.) I have a big report to file, but I have to hold off for a few reasons. Look forward to something either over the weekend or on Monday that I know you guys are going to dig.
3.) Men are smarter than women. Uh, wha? There are so many problems with this that I don’t even know where to start: how does one choose what factors to include when describing intelligence? How do you objectively test and quantify those attributes? Once you come up with your numbers, what the hell do they mean in the real world? That’s the biggest problem — the researcher pulling this crap is using a difference of less than 4 IQ points to explain why women don’t get equal rights, pay, and treatment in general. I’m in awe that this is even considered news. Hey news outlets, can we stop giving these assholes a venue on which to air their stupidity? Thanks!
And my thanks to anyone who reads more about that study and explains to me how it has any scientific merit.
