Scientists: remember to portray whatever you find to be true of women as superior

Scientists: remember to portray whatever you find to be true of women as superior, by Anne Althouse.

I’ve said it before, and I must repeat, the rule is: If you do scientific research into the differences between men and women, you must portray whatever you find to be true of women as superior. And when you read reports about scientific research into the differences between men and women, use the hypothesis that the scientists are following that rule. It makes reading the reports quite humorous. …

I remember the days when people would routinely and openly characterize whatever was true of the male as superior, and I’m glad those days are over (at least in the U.S.). But leaning in the other direction isn’t the answer. It’s patronizing.
