“Mere prattle without [evidence].” – Othello

Yesterday the New York Times published an article perpetuating the common misogynistic trope that women are innately stupider than men.  It makes me crazy.  That such arguments are still being said – and published in such respected outlets! – so nonchalantly shocks me.  At least, my comment pointing out the ridiculousness of the argument was made a NYT Pick and through most of the day yesterday was the number one Reader’s Pick as well.  At least some (maybe a lot of?) people out there do get it.
