Some readers may have fun reading this. I have not edited anything. Due to the conversion some extra lines were added, but his emails genuinely contains lots of oddly placed line breaks. The odd use of e.g. bold is his (Jayl is a male name, apparently). The topic of the email is “University of Toronto, […]

I read this study: Palejwala, M. H., & Fine, J. G. (2015). Gender differences in latent cognitive abilities in children aged 2 to 7. Intelligence, 48, 96-108. It reminded me that these studies rarely test what happens when one uses a bunch of different methods on the same dataset. Nyborg (2003) wrote years ago that […]

This makes it the case that one cannot just take the points for granted and have to check […]

I stumbled across some Men Right’s Activist websites, which i had not payed particularly attention to before, and found something that sounded dubious: There are roughly 5100 men in Swedish prisons and almost 300 women – which is the most disproportionate inmates number by gender in Europe and an obvious proof of leniency propensity on […]

Gendered Shopping A Seven Country Comparison Abstract Studies in Western countries have revealed that women spend more time shopping than do men with the exception of online shopping. To extend this finding to non-Western populations, the present study used identical methods of observing visitors to indoor shopping malls in seven different countries. Three of the […]

[Jerome_H._Barkow]_Missing_the_Revolution_Darwini(Bookos.org) In general, this was a short and interesting read. Made me want to read other material by Anne Campbell. The last chapter is skipable, just as Kanazawa said when he reviewed the book.   –   Women’s “natural” empathy is seen not as an obstacle to impartial observa- tion but rather as an asset […]

A friend of mine recently showed me a blog of one of her friends. Since it has an absurd amount of posts (like my blogs, but even more!), i tried just looking at posts tagged with something that interests me and began reading there (chose “Academia”, yes, im a dirt elitist). Here is the post […]
