Quote of the Day

Feminism is the theory that men and women are equal in every respect--except for those in which women are superior. The trick is to interpret every social indicator as though it demonstrates arbitrary male privilege or genuine female superiority.

For example, when studies show that girls perform less well than boys at advanced math, it is due to systemic discrimination in favor of boys; but when the same studies show that boys’ under-performance in the language arts is four times as great as that of girls in math, well that is due to girls’ innate superiority.

Well there are ovulating males like Satoshi Kanazawa who wrote the following in Psychology Today:
Why modern feminism is illogical, unnecessary, and evil

No wonder Paul Lustus wrote the following: Is Psychology a Science?

Is this supposed to be satire?

Most of this blog is better quality than this.

It's true - and only part of the whole story. Whenever men outnumber women in a particular field, or in higher education in general, then it's a tragedy attributed to sexism. However, now that women outnumber men 60%-40% in university classes across the nation, there seems to be little concern for young men, and all we hear is silence.

Double standard indeed.

this is sth needed to be said long time ago. a couple years ago, larry summers gingerly touched upon this topic and thought that there may be innate competency difference between men and women. then had to resign from some prominent post in Harvard amid some big uproar. for me, it doesn't make any sense that women need to at least as good as men in EVERY field (science, art..). then why there is ever a need for two genders then?

Well-behaved women seldom make history.

Poorly-behaved women don't make history either.

That was a great post. It summed up quite a few points that you have made here on this site recently.

But, like almost all "isms", sexism will continue to propagate through government programs that aren't as blind as they should be
