Scientific Evidence: Women are smarter than men

This requires no further comment...

From the Washington Post (Tuesday, May 2, 2006)

The Gender Gap Exposed

Men are mentally slower than women. Any woman could tell you that, but now there's proof of a sort. Vanderbilt University researchers looking at 8,000 males and females ages 2 to 90 found females to be markedly better at timed tests and tasks . The researchers said the differences, which were particularly significant in teens and preteens, did not reflect differences in overall intelligence, but they may help explain the growing school achievement gap.

'Men cleverer than women' claim

Who will get a first?
Academics in the UK claim their research shows that men are more intelligent than women.
A study to be published later this year in the British Journal of Psychology says that men are on average five points ahead on IQ tests.

Paul Irwing and Professor Richard Lynn claim the difference grows when the highest IQ levels are considered.

Their research was based on IQ tests given to 80,000 people and a further study of 20,000 students.

Hey, guess what boys. Although new scientific research says men are smarter than women, you will also find that it says that men are dumber than women as well. That's the latest research I could find. Have fun trying to figure that one out my "mentally slower" friends.
