Can You Believe This Garbage?

“Researchers” claim that the reason grown men are better at math and physics is because little boys pee standing up.

I am not making this up.

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 musings that led to 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?”

My guess is that this “study” will lead to a Harrison Bergeron scenario where boys are encouraged to pee sitting down so as to eliminate their ‘unfair advantage.’  It’s already happening in Eurotopiastan.

It never even occurs to so-called “scientists” that evolutionary differences in the brain may account for why men are generally over-represented in STEM fields. That is by far the more probably explanation, but it is a Heresy Against The Narrative. The left — while claiming to believe in science — in fact are dogmatically attached to the myth that gender differences are entirely social and caused by the Evil Patriarchy. And that if little boys are forced to play with dolls and pee sitting down, womyn will develop an interest in science and engineering.

  1. Maybe girls would learn more about physics by dealing with the toilet seat themselves rather than insisting that they be put down for them.

  2. I hate to sound like a broken record but it’s going to take a century or two, maybe more, before social norms catch up to what the Utopians envision as the perfect world. What is certain is that no rational business or realistic bureaucracy, if there is such a thing, is going to instigate profit killing quotas, achievement killing quotas or liability saturated action quotas – by hiring just as many women as men, just because they’re woman who happen to not be having babies at the moment or distracted by living the easy life with the husband working while they insist that the busy work of going to the grocery or handling which insurance to buy for whatever, is equally as important as providing cash flow. Traditions are what they are & nothing is forever. But when you have a politician that’s promised everything under the sun & who is now pointing his budget wand at you, you’re going to make up & rationalize some stinky excuse that explains everything.

    Of course, I don’t mean to imply that living the easy life is a bad thing in any way.

    Europe is well on the way with their quotas & population replacement in becoming completely unlivable. Creating vacuums. Something which nature abhors; or so it’s said.

  7. Male brains are different from female, and that is why boys are a bit better at math and science than girls. But you can also say that women are predominate in our universities with 57% of college students are women.

  8. That the proud descendants of the mighty Wehrmacht and the WaffenSS now pee like little girls just shows the terminal degeneracy of Mitteleuropa. No wonder the Volk now passively stand-aside as the Turks and Syrians just walk into their countries and take-over.

  10. And this is why social science is a farce.

    I highly doubt that boys are better at physics on average because they pee standing up. I can’t help but wonder if the two female authors have some sublimated penis envy.

  11. I’m oftentimes highly skeptical of biological explanations of sex/race differences for many reasons, largely because it is oftentimes impossible to distinguish societal pressures from biological proclivities largely because it takes a quarter of a life time to train a scientist, and economic and sociological pressures can have a massive effect on this.

    There was a study from Bell some time ago that showed that their most successful engineers developed keen social relationships with their peers and had superior time management skills, both things that are completely unrelated to things like spatial reasoning and other factors that are usually held as the definitive characteristic leading to a career in STEM.

    There’s also ample evidence that plenty of women leave the career track because of complications related to child birth, because of rampant sexism or because of lack of female role models. When these things are accounted for and addressed, the number of women in such programs increases.

    We should look at this question from all sides and not just claim that one specific explanation, which is contested by many, including the scholars whom James Damore cited.

  12. “It never even occurs to so-called “scientists” that evolutionary differences in the brain may account for why men are generally over-represented in STEM fields”

    Sigh

    There is lots of research on this. They find that brains are not “male/female” but instead there are subtle differences in wiring and processing.

    Study after study says those differences do not account for the disparity in STEM fields and mostly mysoginistic know-nothings claim this. Instead study after study shows that teaching methods, social pressure and other “soft” pressures are keeping women out of STEM fields. As teaching environment/methods change and as society changes we are already seeing that gap narrow. Hopefully this brings us more scientists and a better world through scientific progress.

  13. Let me gets this right :

    mike states the human brain is not female/male. Then mike goes on to state “differences in wiring and processing.” Isn’t that a contradiction?

    The mike states “As teaching environment/methods change and as society changes” to accommodate the female “differences in wiring and processing”. Another contradiction.

    mike advocates changing the STEM educational process to accommodate females. Isn’t that mysoginistic (sic)? Doesn’t that prove that females are unable to keep up with males in the current way of doing things?

    I wonder if mike would be willing to adapt all classroom environments to better accommodate males who are falling behind in certain fields of study?

    Now, a real world fact : I have several nephews in the STEM field. In discussions around this topic. They say the biggest obstacle for females in the STEM field, is the hostile attitude of non-STEM females. Female nerds are oppressed mostly by non-nerd females.

  14. @3 wow. I’ve read descriptions, but it’s something else to see video. I’m glad I saw Paris in 1980.

  15. @TrusNe1

    Have you maybe considered asking the women themselves about the reasons they feel STEM fields are unsuited to them? While I by no means doubt the veracity of their testimony, I feel like it would be a good thing if we consulted them.

    Many women, even conservative women that want nothing to do with feminism mind you, tell me the oftentimes rampant sexism as well as the lack of belonging and academic engagement in their chosen fields cause them to drop out.

    I have female gunsmiths at my local gun club tell me they wish their male peers would take them more seriously. These are Dana Loesch types who are more 2nd amendment than any conservative male I’ve ever met. I have a far easier time trusting them than some dude paraphrashing or some histrionic gender studies major parroting college propaganda.

    Reducing everything to a simple biological explanation that does not include the actual process necessary to become a STEM practicioner is intellectually lazy. It reduces the process (oftentimes referred to as the leaky pipeline) to nothing but a binary biologically predisposed or not biologically predisposed which ignores the fact that a person with no access to a computer in the first eighteen years of their life will not be very interested in programming.

    Try being out and proud in one of these multi-cultural experiments. I trust you’ll see why multi-culturalism is an utter failure.

    There’s a reason most gay and lesbian immigrants to Europe vote right.

  17. As a white male, I now officially declare my victimhood… I am being oppressed and want whatever that’ll get me. (I suspect not much) but I want in on the blame game too. Sing along with me….. Girly, girly, fee fi, so surly, Girrrrrlllyy…

  18. By most measures, women are better off than men in the US (high-school and college graduation rates, mortality figures, on and on and on).

    I don’t see any barriers to women in STEM. Indeed, as with blacks, companies will roll out the red carpet to any women interested in a STEM job (ditto for university). In some STEM fields (e.g. biology and veterinary medicine come to mind without needing to DDG it), women prevail. From my acquaintance with a nearby medical school, lots of women are training as physicians.

    So, a woman not in the sciences is not in the sciences because she doesn’t have the aptitude or wants to do something else.

  19. this is what passes for scholarship in our institutions of higher education. there is probably a nobel prize in their future. this is why we have students with the highest grades and the lowest test score in the history of American education.

  20. I think it has a lot to do with parenting. My sister has always expressed interest in becoming a marine biologist. And our parents never said “no.”

    Contrast this with three sisters I knew, who had their lives all but spelled out for them. One was great at chemistry and wanted to go into that, but her parents told her to be a doctor. The other wanted to be a jockey/horse breeder, but they told her to be an attorney. The third was the only one who said “Screw that” and basically got disowned.

    So yeah, I do think that women’s perception of STEM and whether they pursue it is influenced by family first and foremost.

  21. littlelettermikey @ #12 gives us this:

    “le sigh.”

    Sigh

    There is lots of research on this. They find that brains are not “male/female” but instead there are subtle differences in wiring and processing.

    (…) study after study shows that teaching methods, social pressure and other “soft” pressures are keeping women out of STEM fields.

    They who? Who the hell studies crap like this? Not the S.T.E.M. people. Why in the world would they?

    TnnsNE1 @ #13 more than adequately rips littlelettermikey’s “le sigh” to tatters and shreds. But I wonder where littlelettermikey’s “They” are coagulating and doing study after study after study.

    I bet I know the answer. They are in engineering: social engineering. They are the kings and queens of psychobabble and things as they “ought to be.”

    Their “scientific method” works like this:

    1. Identify the effect.

    2. Postulate the cause.

    3. Align the cause with the “how things ought to be” matrix.

    4. Declare the cause responsible for the effect.

    5. Build a consensus.

    6. Become a card-carrying member of They.

    Therefore, little boys peeing while standing up must be recognized as another social ill and in league with white privilege.

    Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, Thales, Zeno, Seneca, Pliny, Aureilus, Ambrose, Ptolemy, Julian, Troilus, Tiberius, Lao Tzu, Constantine, Siddhartha Gautama, Confucius, Cicero, Augstine, Aquinas, Scotus, Rumi, Ockham, Bacon, Erasmus, Montaigne, More, Lockw, Voltaire, Rousseau, Monstesquie, Diderot, Kant, Smith, Spinoza, Nietzsche, Hegel, Mill, Wycliff, Hus, Mill, Kierkegaard, Schopenhauer, Spencer, Russel, Bakunin, Lewes, Schiller, Tagore, Ruskin, Ratzenhofer, de Tocqueville, Bentham, Marx, James, Jung, Sartre, Popper, and so many more great minds never fell into the trap of reverse cause and effect.

    The world littlelettermikey dwells in sees an effect which is adjudged to be “disturbing” or “wrong” and then to set about “engineering” into “acceptablitily” or extinction.

    The “engineering” is done by the brute force of government. First, the target is labeled “deplorable.” That “triggers” the “engineering” which “neuters” or “exterminates” the government engineering tools.

    More simply put: Jews, blacks, gays, unwanted fetuses, cripples, the mentally deficient, Gypsies, racists, misogynists, xenophobes, and more will be subjected to government engineering up to and including the final solution. (See: Lenin, Hitler, Castro, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mongol Horde, al Qaida, ISIS, Central Africa, Hutus, Mandans, Hidatsas, Arikaras, Crows, Pawnees, Cheyennes, Lakotas, Rajputs of Mewat, Bengal Sultanate, Vijayanagara, Timur, Maratha women, Guangzhou massacre, Dzungar genocide, Mao, Nanking, Armenia, Kurds, Zunghar Khanate, Circassia, Bangladesh, Cathars, Chechans, Carthaginians, Isaaqs, Yazidis, etc.)

    littlelettermikey belongs to the school of idiots who believe they are the smartest people ever to have existed. They stand on the shoulders of NO ONE.

    This arrogance is beyond mere classification. littlelettermikey and his minions have within themselves a “moral code” center, but no soul. They don’t need no stinkin’ history, tradition, accumulated learning. They dwell in the probable, more perfect world of their imaginations. That world is manipulated, by the enlightened elite at the helm of government force which delivers the survivors into Camelot, Eden, Elysium, fantasyland, lotusland, never-never land, nirvana, Shangri-la, paradise, arcadia, Utopia.

    littlelettermikey and his lot are hell bent on dragging us kicking and screaming into his fool’s paradise.

  22. I’m surrounded by men who have no clue about science or technology. They all stand at the throne to vacate their bladders. I’m also a self-taught techie and damn good at fixing a washing machine. The big issue here is choice and not wimping out on a whiny tirade. Yes, non-nerd women are a big wall but so are “feminists” with their “men are so unfair” whine. Men are great. They are the ones getting the raw deal in education-designed for the way proper little misses behave in groups.
