As soon as you give a woman a job, she proceeds
to use it to oppress men. Now that journalism is female-dominated, it
is just another front line in the war on men. The popular magazine New
Scientist, for example, has dumbed down its contents (e.g. more brief
articles) and introduced an editorial section and an "Opinion" column,
where (as if by accident!) the only political views allowed will be leftist
and Feminist ones. On their editorial page, I remember seeing it use
the word "NOT" in capital letters to
emphasise that women were not inferior (by some measure of intellectual capacity
Page 42 of its 4 September 2010 issue is dominated by the headline Waging
war on neurosexism, with the subheading If you thought the differences
between the sexes were hard-wired, think again.
The Feminazi politburo issues its command.
Underneath that headline, we find two book reviews -- and it will surprise
no one to see that both books are by women and that the reviewer is also a
woman. With typical Femifascism, the reviewer contemplates "calling
for a moratorium on popular books about differences between the sexes."
Why doesn't she just call for books that she disagrees with to be burnt, and
be done with it? However, she is reassured that the two "popular
books about differences between the sexes" which she is reviewing follow
the Feminist party line -- and, of course, she knows that calling for a moratorium
on books on this topic would be counterproductive, since everyone would realise
that Feminists were afraid of the truth.
The reviews do not enlighten the reader about the the actual differences
between the sexes, however. Unfortunately, we will just have to read the books,
if we want to evaluate them!
Counter-evidence slips in under the radar
On page 25 of its 31 July 2010 edition, New Scientist had already
provided evidence against the Feminist party line. An interview with
Professor Richard Haier, who "uses neuroimaging to study cognitive processes
and intelligence", states that "What we are finding is that a person's
score in tests of analytical reasoning, memory and spatial and numerical abilities
is indeed related to the amount of grey matter in different areas of their
brain." Given that it is well-known that men's brains are 10% bigger
than women's brains (Dekaban & Sadowsky 1978),
and that men
have proportionately more grey matter than women, the potential implications
for the relative mental abilities of men and women are clear. Witelson,
Kigar and Harvey 1999 cite Wickett, Vernon and Lee
1994 as having shown a low, but significant, positive correlation between
brain volume and IQ scores (in females). According to Witelson,
Glezer & Kigar 1995, Peters 1991 found very
low correlations between brain and body size variables in male and female
groups, so men don't have bigger brains just because they have bigger bodies.
have proportionately more white matter, which is not surprising, since
men's brains have more lateral specialisation, and require less communication
between various parts of the brain (which is the role of white matter) in
order to carry out certain types of mental activities. Witelson,
Glezer & Kigar 1995 cite findings that the interhemispheric commissures,
including the isthmus of the corpus callosum, are larger in women than in
men. On the other hand, there is at least one part of the brain where
women appear to have 11% more neurons in a given volume of cortex (Witelson,
Glezer & Kigar 1995). However, neurons constitute only one of the
many types of brain cells that exist, and we don't know that densely-packed
neurons are as efficient as (or more efficient than) less densely-packed neurons,
as far as I am aware. Witelson, Glezer & Kigar 1995 suggest that
the 11% greater density of neurons in female brains (if repeated all over
the cortex) compensates and accounts for the 10% greater size of male brains.
However, this appears to overlook the fact that (as the authors themselves
state) the average man's cortical volume for the part of the brain they studied
was 22% greater than that of a woman, so women's 11% greater neuron density
does not compensate for men's 22% greater cortical volume even in the area
of the brains which the authors studied.
Lynn 1994 confirms that "Males have larger brains
than females, even when corrected for body size," and that males have
IQs 4 points higher than females. However, it is not obvious that what
IQ tests measure comprises all and only the higher mental abilities which
are relevant to human behaviour. IQ tests are based on an a priori
categorisation and error-prone testing of presumed mental "faculties"
of various types, and have little empirical justification. See: Psychologists
and Women Don't Have the Brains to Study Intelligence.
The one vital conclusion that can be arrived at is
that women who use their jobs to oppress men should be kicked out of their
jobs. Feminists worry that scientific results that showed that
women were inferior to men would be used for "improper purposes."
There would be nothing "improper" about making sure that the best
person got a particular job -- even if that tended to be a man. Women
are already admitted to be physically inferior to men -- and what happens?
What happens is that double standards are set up which discriminate against
men by allowing women to, for example, enter the US
Marines and the New Zealand Police , when
men are rejected if their physical performance is as low as the minimum female
Every aspect of Society is corrupted by the political Feminist demand for
female privilege. Responding to this vicious form of anti-male discrimination
is an urgent political priority.
