Men more intelligent than women, says academic

tonyf: Im kind of sceptical of this whole article, but for your information…

By Sarah Cassidy

Men are more likely to win Nobel prizes and achieve excellence simply because they are more intelligent than women , according to a controversial male academic.
In a paper to be published in a leading research journal, one of Britain’s most outspoken academics will argue that men have larger brains and higher IQs than women, to such an extent that they are better suited to “tasks of high complexity”.

Richard Lynn, emeritus professor of psychology at Ulster University, who has caused outrage in the past with claims that white people are more intelligent than blacks and that criminal traits are genetic, will publish the work with Dr Paul Irwing, senior lecturer in organisational psychology at Manchester University.

The study, to be published in the British Journal of Psychology in November, concluded that men not only have larger brains but also have higher IQs, on average by about 5 points, than women.

However, the paper will argue that women “achieve more” in life than men with the same IQ, “possibly because they are more conscientious and better adapted to sustained periods of hard work”.

tonyf: YEAH RIGHT. Tui anyone?


  1. did anyone see Dr Lynn on Campbell live? It was one of the most biased pieces of journalism I have ever seen! Now I know why Helen Clarke called him(Campbell) a ‘twerp’.

  3. u talking about bias, the whole society is biased against men, even men. men are not appreciated inspite of being stronger and much more intelligent than women, they are better in every field and women have got enough oppotunities , but they are still losers like all u feminist asses. if women are so strong send them to fight wars , if they are so intelligent let them lauch satellites, if they are so spiritual let them guide people to enlightenment, they have lagged behind everywhere , u idiotic pets of women. get real , have the balls to face the reality. me not anti women, just screwed of the shit u people talk about, enough of lying to ur selves.

  4. Child Sexual Abuse by Women

    Till now we thought that sexual crimes were not a women’ ball game, but come to the real world and shatter the myths from your mind. Yes you heard it right, rapes by women against men, women and mostly children accompanied by violence a lot of times. We all know that women do commit crimes like murders, robbery, stealing etc. But people know very less about women rapists.

    Women mostly make younger boys their victims because adult men are physically stronger than women and can defend them selves, but in spite of that there have been numerous cases in which women have raped adult men. In many other cases they have used pistols, knives and other weapons to scare the victim and then they sexually abused those men. . The shocking thing is that more than 90% of these cases are not reported or the law excuses these women either by disbelief or benefit of doubt. Also people laugh it away when they hear about such an incident saying that if a man cannot defend himself, he is not a man enough. They should shed their sick mentality.

    A percentage of the victims are young girls and boys raped by their own Female Family members like Mom, Sisters, aunts, grand mom’s etc. These children suffer from guilt, shame, irritation and anger after being abused, which have also led to suicides. But till now these cases were suppressed by the so-called feminist organizations to protect the so-called dignity of women.

    Majority of rapes by Women were very violent in which the perpetrator Women sometimes even castrated their own sons or husbands. Being in India (because media in India is anti men) you would not have heard much about it, but its very common in Western countries and also Africa.
    The number of female inmates doing time for sex offenses has doubled in recent years: In 1991, there were 647 women in prison for rape and other sexual offenses; in 2002, there were 1,300 female sex offenders, according to prisoner reports collected by the Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Statistics. But they were just jailed for a few weeks or months where as a Rapist should be at least convicted for 7 years. These Rapists were pardoned because they were Women. Talk about law.

    So somebody was talking about giving death sentence to Men rapists, so do you think these Women should be excused who are ruining or finishing lives of innocent children and young men. If your answer is YES, then you should be ashamed of yourself, because you are a biased parasite like our police and the government. Yes our government who gives capital punishment to Men murderers and just imprisonment to their female counterparts. It is not the frequency of the crime that matters; it is the intensity and seriousness that matters.

    Lastly, I am not against women. I am working for an NGO, which helps and protects the rights of Women, so basically I am a feminist and believe in equality, equality in terms of rewards and punishments both. My idea is to spread the awareness of crimes, so that innocent lives can be saved. Thank you
