Standing Up to Pee Gives Boys an Unfair Advantage in Physics

Standing Up to Pee Gives Boys an Unfair Advantage in Physics, by John Ellis.

In the latest example of identity politics taken to its absurd end, three Australian college professors believe that “playful urination practices – from seeing how high you can pee to games such as Peeball (where men compete using their urine to destroy a ball placed in a urinal) – may give boys an advantage over girls when it comes to physics.”

The three professors didn’t publish their thoughts on a satirical website like The Onion. Instead, they published on Tes, a website that provides “educational materials, jobs, news, and courses from the world’s best community of teachers and school leaders.” In the article, Anna Wilson, Kate Wilson, and David Low argue with a straight face that peeing standing up provides an advantage for boys over girls in learning physics.

Explaining what prompted their conclusion about the advantages peeing standing up gives boys, the professors write, “The gender gap in physics, and other related subjects including engineering, has long been a cause for concern. … Therefore we have to ask: why don’t young women perform as well in physics?”

That seems like a semi-reasonable question, I think. Except Professors Wilson, Wilson, and Low live and ask questions in the land of identity politics.

The reasons are politically incorrect, because they relate to  differences between men and women that put some men at an advantage. (What would a PC person do? Best not talk about it. If asked, just deny it.)
