A Prepackaged Flamewar

Men are smarter than women (h/t gnxp)

[Based on the BBC writeup, I suspect that the researchers only studied the right hand side of the distribution and are indirectly restating the quasi-conventional wisdom that IQ means are similar, but the male distribution has a higher variance].

There's actually a flame war of sorts on the BBC site, and slashdot is well into it.

So to quote the human torch [who has become part of an repeatedly told inappropriate joke between my brother and I]: Flame On!
