the answer is quite simple.....she was the one paying
The major question is, how does one measure male idiocy? I mean, do you just stand on the street corner and take note of the number of times that men do something stupid? What would an experimental study consist of? For example, would you perhaps conduct experiments with men and women where you leave them alone with a motorcycle, duct tape, some 2X4s and see what happens?
Such a study would leave me utterly baffled.
But fear not! The authors were able to tackle this difficult issue thanks to The Darwin Awards. If you are not familiar with the awards, in order to win you have to lose…your life. Winners of the Darwin Award must die in such an idiotic manner that “their action ensures the long-term survival of the species, by selectively allowing one less idiot to survive.” Notably, the Darwin Awards Committee attempts to make a clear distinction between idiotic deaths and accidental deaths. Thus, by looking at who wins more awards, men or women, we can make inferences about who the bigger idiots are.

Well the BMJ does have a point. Most of their staff are men. This statement they have made is about the most idiotic thing I have read in days.
Honestly, this is very pointless. Why belittle one sex over another? Why not just respect both?
Stuff that beats on women is BAD. Stuff that beats on men is BAD. Why don't we horrid little children move away from this abyss of ignorance?
What was your motive in posting this, OP? Hope it wasn't just to wind people up.
