If you believe that female people are superior in this way, you have three self-consistent possibilities:

i) Male people are superior in other equally important ways, i.e. you believe in a "seperate and different but equal" idea.

ii) Female people are just plain superior to male people.

iii) Female people are superior to male people up to a certain age. Past first degree age, as the gap in average academic performance continues past that. Maybe 25?

If (iii), do you advocate that men be granted adult rights later than women? e.g. women can vote at 18, men not until 25? If not, why not?

Lenten:

The average academic performance of female pupils is higher than that of male pupils.

You believe that the school system is strongly biased against female people.

You must therefore believe that without the bias you think exists, female pupils would outperform male pupils by a much larger margin.

There are two things you can believe while remaining self-consistent:

i) Female pupils are innately superior to male pupils.

ii) There is an even stronger antimale bias outside schools that more than offsets the antifemale bias you think is in schools.

Which do you believe?

You do think. Sadly, too many people don`t, so they believe in various irrational prejudices and, unlike you, make themselves too stupid to realise that individuals vary.

Proof? They score higher on IQ tests where you need to decide what shape comes next blah blah?
Surely the fact that everything that has ever mattered this far has either been decided/invented by a man? i`m not sexist though i love bitches!

Is anyone else old enough to remember when the prevailing sexism was to believe that men could multitask far better than women?

Same poo, different sex. Though the rapidity of the reversal is quite unusual with this particular baseless stereotyping.

A good rule of thumb is to assume that every stereotype about every biological group is very probably nothing more than a reflection of irrational prejudice and that every absolute statement about biolgicial groups is absolutely false unless it involves only the criteria used to define those groups.

[quote]Studies show that male and female teachers alike call on male students more than five time as often as females in the classroom through out all grades.[/quote]

Are those the ones showing that male pupils are reprimanded several times as often as female pupils? Being "called on" isn`t necessarily a good thing.

We have one story claiming that all women are more intelligent than all men and another story about one specific woman who did something foolish in a car. Group smear in one, factual statement about an individual in the other.

The fact that anyone could seriously ask which direction the sexism is going in that scenario shows that antimale sexism is dominant in society today.

Still don`t see it? Try swapping groups so that you`re not blinded by the prejudices we`re all conditioned to have. So, for example, imagine MSN carrying the headline "Proof Blacks are less honest". Do you see the prejudice now? What do you think would happen if MSN had a story title that prejudiced against a group it isn`t currently socially acceptable to be that prejudiced against, rather than against men?

I believe the lady on the left hand side who poured acid on her face and lied about it would also conflict how women are supposedly smarter than men.

Lanten,
Where did you get your statistics? From my experience, the opposite was true. Females were called on more than males. Females were also told to think for themselves to figure out answers while males were given answers as if trying to teach us were a waste of time. I think the difference in education between any two groups differs my region, school and even teacher, so I don`t think you can truly say one group gets different treatment as a blanket statement. They should have taught you that in your psych classes.

You know something, Lenten, that is a VERY good argument.

I have a six year old Daughter who I hope will grow up to be a strong, independent woman some day. I`ve seen the way society tries to belittle women and "pigeon hole" them into certain roles.

While I still feel the overall percentages lean in favour of men, I can`t help but be slightly swayed by your argument...

You know, all of the bullets under "More on MSNBC" can be pieced together to make a story:

The woman was on her cellphone in a job interview arguing about how women are now smarter even though she didn`t go to school as a kid and that she deserves the job. She drives into a lake and yells "I just flat-ironed my hair!", which the employer agreed was the stupidest thing said during a job interview. She is now on the search for a new car.

I think that one would be rather unintelligent to also not consider the nature VS. nurture debate in this though. I`m an Education major with a Psych minor, and unfortunately in our schools and in our society women are still being taught that they don`t need to excel academically. Who knows how many braincells are being wasted?

Typically people live up the expectations and standards set for them. Furthermore men are given many more chances to learn than women. Studies show that male and female teachers alike call on male students more than five time as often as females in the classroom through out all grades. Furthermore teachers are quicker to offer help to a girl with the answer than a boy. Add onto that the fact that girls are typically asked very straightforward and concrete questions with factual answers, and boys get almost all of the critical thinking questions that require deeper thought and analysis.

So are men smarter, or do we give them more opportunities

Proof women are smarter? LOL!

I know I`m going to get in trouble for this, but women are not smarter, overall.

Yes, there are some woman that are FAR smarter then most men. There are men that are FAR smarter then most women. That seems to just be an average, equal thing.

When we talk about "the smartest", I think you`ll find that there are far more men at the "MENSA" club level of intelligence, than there are women.

Most intelligent women (my wife being one of them), will agree with me. They often find themselves alone with a room full of dumb women, or hanging out with the men.
