My NEW Taki’s column on smart women and ‘studies’
The comments won’t be so much “JOOOOOOO!!!!!”-y this time; expect a surfeit of “Ewwww! A girl in the treehousse!!” instead:
Which brings me (yes, just hours before my deadline) to the latest one to capture my attention, via where else but the Daily Mail:
Men ARE threatened by intelligence: Study reveals males claim to be attracted to women who are cleverer than them…until they actually meet one.
Why bother reading more? You already know that the sample size was comically miniscule and rarefied (105 male college students); the methodology, Heath Robinsonian; the “science,” well, not (in this case, psychology.)
And more important, unless you are reading this, that, and everything else on an iPad attached to the mechanical arm extending from your iron lung (and even then…), you didn’t need a “study” to “prove” that, did you?
