That awkward moment when one of The Main Reasons Men and Women Are Just Differently Skilled at Stuff, You Guys actually turns out to be more complicated than you thought.
Friendly reminder that this is probably caused by the fact that we don’t teach girls math well enough to begin with and generally discourage girls and women from studying math and science through various forms of harassment.
even though i just reblogged this reblogging again because guys, the brain is so plastic. what toys do little boys get? legos, erector sets, tinkertoys—toys that use object rotation in the way that it’s typically tested in IQ tests. their brains get practice rotating blocks and making 3-d figures out of 2-d instructions. what do little girls get? dolls, barbies, dollhouses. so we also get practice in object rotation, but we get it less and we get it in a very different form than it’s tested for in IQ tests. So many “differences” between men and women (because studies have found such conflicting evidence about these differences) that are “found” to be in the brain are found by looking at adult brain scans—yeah, no duh that after different lifetimes men and women’s’ brains look different. neuroplasticity, dude.
Mike gives a very convincing argument on why it’s good to not be a Chinese college student… In gross detail.
I was expecting more stories about how awesome China is, but instead I’m getting poop stories. I suppose I should expect no less from Mike.
Anne and I just decorated our graduation caps and I’m so pleased with mine.
