Guess we'll be seeing less of the SJW online outrage machine then...
because you -can't- debate with an SJW. If you try to discuss with them they accuse you of 'sea-lioning' or 'unconcious sexism' or just call you a shitlord.
there is no reasoning with this people. Their hugbox is holy and right and comfortable and oh so warm.
And this is news for nerds...how? Isn't there an SJW blog this could be posted to instead?

You dodged a bullet there; doing IT for a law firm is horrendous. they don't want to pay you what you're worth and you're working with people who argue for a living.

If they could make a timepiece, i'd wear one. who needs straps!
Heh, it's been a while since I've cited that. I had to look it back up. Unfortunately, I can only find an article discussing the study in the limited time I have right now: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/education/higher/dr-paul-irwing-there-are-twice-as-many-men-as-women-with-an-iq-of-120plus-426321.html
And, also, I must correct myself: 20+ points away from norm is 2:1. 70+ points away from norm is still 30:1
Since, at least where I'm from, women are still the discriminated group,
1) Please enumerate any government-granted rights which men enjoy that do not apply to women in equal or greater measure.
2) Please enumerate any government-imposed responsibilities which women endure that do not apply to men in equal or greater measure.
Now please reverse those questions.
Which gender is being discriminated against? Small hint: it's not women.
You're going to claim that the discrimination which is important is social? Women make up 52-54% of the population. If women are, in fact, "equal" then social discrimination will end as soon as women want it to end.
Are you going to claim that women are disadvantaged in money or spending power? Women make 80% of spending decisions (I can cite this if you actually care).
I want to give the same rights to women that men already have.
Equal rights without equal responsibilities or privilege is NOT equality.
A) Men had greater rights.
B) Women had less responsibilities.
C) Women had greater privilege.
Feminism wants to correct A and ignore B and C... again proving Feminism is not a movement for equality.
The only real question remaining is if Feminism is a lie or a hate movement.
I think it's quite appropriate that you cited the President of Harvard.
Did you read past the title? Apparently not.
So a racist misogynistic asshole says women are dumber then men,
No, but nice try to make his comment what you need it to be so you can actually debate it.
What he said was: [paraphrased]"There are more smart men than women (and more dumb men than women.) When we look at people who are skilled at math enough to apply to our math-heavy science college, there will be more men than women in the group."
While you'll of course find a segment of the population agreeing with you,
The entire scientific community agrees with me. SAT scores agree with me. Nature agrees with me. Reality agrees with me.
See, mother nature was a smart cookie. She decided that it wasn't wise to waste reproductive capacity on environmental testing.
However, since the standard deviation is about 14 points, k8to would say that the difference in gender distributions is not significant in predicting an individual's IQ
Actually, there is a difference in standard deviation depending on gender as well. Men have larger standard deviations than women in just about every physiological trait. IQs 20+ points away from norm (120 and above or 80 and below) are 6:1 male:female. IQs 70+ points away from norm have a gender ratio of 30:1. So, yes, to say that one gender is "superior" to another, even in IQ would be incorrect. However, to say that the superior people are much more likely one gender (male) is truth no matter how politically incorrect it is.
So you are correct that knowing one's gender is insignificant about predicting their IQ, but knowing one's IQ can help significantly in predicting their gender.
Unless you're in a niche market, such as modeling women's clothing, or lifting heavy cargo/equiment, where the ratio will swing dramatically, but not completely eliminating the opposite gender, then your ratios should hit about 50/50.
Actually, no. This false belief is one of the biggest problems in today's society. The truth of the matter is that men are more diverse than women, even if the averages are the same. What that means is that you'll only see 50/50 gender split if the job is something that 50% of the population could qualify for. As soon as you have a job/role/whatever that less than 50% of the population could do, you will see more men than women who are capable of doing said job.
Have a job that requires nothing other than a 50th percentile math ability? You'll see 50/50.
Have a job that requires nothing other than a 95th percentile math ability? You'll see 64/36 in favor of males.
Have a job that requires nothing other than a 99th percentile math ability? You'll see 71/29 in favor of males.
It's really that simple. A job that requires skills that only one out of a hundred people have, and you're already seeing a massive gender disparity on who is even capable of doing the job.
False allegations of rape occur just as often as false allegations of robbery
So robbery has a 40% false allegation rate*? I never knew.
