    Academic Activists Send a Published Paper Down the Memory Hole - Quillette

    ...If the favored victim group doesn't like it.

    Long article, but in brief, this Academic writes a paper documenting why men are over - represented in areas where highest intelligence prevails (Nobel laureates, chess masters, top positions in engineering and math). Basically, the dispersion of intelligence (among other things) in men is wider than women. Therefore, there are more male geniuses and more male imbeciles, while the average intelligence male/female is about the same. His research was "brutally" suppressed in Academe, because the findings might make women feel bad, or become discouraged.

    Think about that. None of the critics challenged his data, or conclusions, but they threw a hissy - fit to prevent it's publication because of how it might make people FEEL!

    Is the Left Fucked up or what?

    Women excel at making babies. I can't make babies. Can you make babies?

    Damn. No wonder they suppressed it. It would have made everyone involved look like an idiot. WTF?

    "There are significantly more men than women, for example, among Nobel laureates, music composers, and chess champions—and also among homeless people, suicide victims, and federal prison inmates."

    What makes this quack think that writing music or being a chess champion makes a male more intelligent than a female that is a stay at home mom?

    This is truly awful.

    I'm a woman and I have no problem with this. What's the issue? It's true. If you look at history, it doesn't take a GENIUS to figure out that, by and large, men have mostly built everything. And they have mostly destroyed it too. Hello? Doesn't mean women can't be great at whatever too....just looking at the data.

    Science sucks these days. They don't even hold to their own standards.

    He didn't compare composers and chess champions to stay at home moms. He compared them to prisoners, homeless people and suicide victims. Do try to get it right.

    Well you can stay at home with your kids and still be a chess player, or at some point compose music. You can still make it to the top of many of those fields, but many women do not. The neuroscience bears out so much of what this study says: men fall more at the top and bottom of intelligence and also have the ability to focus on one task better, which probably leads to better accomplishment in fields like chess and composition. Women are much better multitaskers. This is brain research. You know, science.
