Unmasking a cliché

15 08 11 - 14:49

Remember that your average tweebo (sensitive man twee/white knight rambo) will scream "correlation is not causation" any time you point out a legitimate cause.

He'll be silent for this:


Park notes that women, in particular, are socialized from a young age to be romantically desirable, and that traditional romantic scripts in Western cultures are highly gendered, prescribing how men and women ought to think, feel and behave in romantic settings.

"Gender scripts discourage women from appearing intelligent in masculine domains, like STEM," Park says, "and in fact, studies show that women who deviate from traditional gender norms, such as succeeding in male-typed jobs, experience backlash for violating societal expectations.


No mention of the other facts in the equation. Were these women also equally attractive, nice, organized and ready for family life?

Yep, the girl who went into hard science and is 450 lbs of angry tattooed fat didn't get a man -- it must be her science career. It's only rational.

This is from a nutcase study that interprets some good data quite badly:


Four new studies by researchers at the University at Buffalo have found that when a woman's goal is to be romantically desirable, she distances herself from academic majors and activities related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). - PhysOrg


Hurrr, I wonder how that could be -- durrr, it must be sexism.

More likely:


  • Women who want to start families do not want a career that takes over their lives. This is intelligent planning. I bet they don't become overnight security guards either. Is that racism, er, sexism at work?

  • Women who want to start families wish to demonstrate their femininity. This requires they use contextual logic, not linear logic. Thus going into science will make them seem linear and thus not ready.

  • Women who want to start families do not want to go hang out with the geeks, freaks, dweebs, liberals and other associating partial intelligences that show up in the lab. For full intelligence, the people in liberal arts majors -- who are better critical thinkers -- are more likely bets.



The study didn't make it to these things. Wonder why not?

Oh well, there's a ready audience for the "It was oppressions!!!1!" line, so let's sell the dummies that one.

"This requires they use contextual logic, not linear logic. Thus going into science will make them seem linear and thus not ready."

What the fuck does that mean? What is linear logic? What is contextual logic?

"For full intelligence, the people in liberal arts majors -- who are better critical thinkers"

What it means, Dave, is get a fucking DICTIONARY. I know what it means - 15-08-’11 19:55

The thinking of Dave is simple : see an argument which is not demonstrated from point by point from axioms like studies and then say it shouldn't be said at all. TD - 15-08-’11 20:13

"What it means, Dave, is get a fucking DICTIONARY."

Really? That whole STATEMENT is in the dictionary? The terms "linear logic" and "contextual logic" are in the dictionary? I work and study in a discipline that constantly makes reference to formal and informal logical concepts, and I still don't know what this ANUS wannabe intellectual is on about.

"see an argument which is not demonstrated from point by point from axioms like studies and then say it shouldn’t be said at all."

I asked for simple empirical evidence. It's a perfectly reasonable request when somebody makes a highly controversial claim that appears not to have been demonstrated AT ALL by anybody. That's how the pursuit of knowledge works, kid. Is "hessian" synonymous with "credulous douche" or what?

By the way, I'm not Dave, but I am the REAL Dave's #1 Fan. anus.com: wannabe intellectualism for pissed off children - 15-08-’11 23:25

No, but Dave is synonymous with nigger... get a life - 16-08-’11 00:58
developing technology > writing manuals for that technology, eh prozy?
>Women who want to start families

More like women who want it easy and just spread their legs. Women can afford to be less ambitious than men, many choose the easy route.

>For full intelligence, the people in liberal arts majors -- who are better critical thinkers -- are more likely bets.

Hahahahaha, now you're just trolling. Yeah dude, become a philosophy major, that's just what the job market needs, more entitled brats ready to become paper shufflers. Because quoting some faggot from before electricity existed takes a lot more intelligence than actual problem solving, research and inventive talent and skill. You bloviate about correlation and causation but you couldn't even tell me how to calculate the p-value for a study to determine statistical significance.

Not to mention there's plenty of hot women in the sciences, especially the life sciences. I could even link you to the academic pages of some but I don't trust you aspies to not send them weirdass e-mails and filth. Besides, the four hundo bitches tend to gravitate towards the liberal arts like the anime fags, the more serious mousy chicks are studying CS or math. developing technology > writing manuals for that technology, eh prozy? - 16-08-’11 01:46
