That, folks, is what it looks like when you take the short yellow bus to your Womyn’s Studies classes.
A.) I never advocated the study was accurate. Lindsay Beyerstein claims it is.
B.) I did state that it was anti-intellectual to jump the gun and call a study sexist before having read it.
C.) I think the re-writes of the study that appeared in the Scotsman and elsewhere are crap.
D.) Calling a study ‘cute,’ ‘self-serving,’ and ‘sexist,’ before even reading it is anti-intellectualism.
F.) Only in the weird world of Amanda Marcotte is having one author of a website ‘suggesting’ something to the other author an attempt to ‘control the womenfolk.’
The Scotsman article was stupid and a load of bullshit. So was Amanda’s response, to simply dismiss the study because of the article, without having read the actual study. And her utter inability to recognize that, and to simply launch into another one of her public displays of victimhood is precisely what I meant when I described her as a ‘feminist caricature.’
At least Amanda and I agree on one thing- there are many ‘layers of stupid’ here. I doubt we agree where those layers start and end.
