Heh heh heh ....apparently you don't need to be too smart to be president of Harvard these days.




CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- The president of Harvard University prompted criticism for suggesting that innate differences between the sexes could help explain why fewer women succeed in science and math careers.


The only thing he could have done worse was say women of colour.




Lawrence H. Summers, speaking Friday at an economic conference, also questioned how great a role discrimination plays in keeping female scientists and engineers from advancing at elite universities.


Well by Larry's logic they would in fact be discriminated against on the basis of their inferior intellect. (Feel better ladies?)

The hiring of women for top positions Harvard has also declined under his reign and he has promised to "work on it"

I think Larry has dug himself a hole that he will be unable to extract himself from.

Now one of you ladies out there get me a sammich and a beer.

Sometimes its better not to say things out loud, even if they might be true...

Out of a 500 people at Ryerson University (Ontario, Canada), there are only ten women in aerospace engineering, the rest males.

As for men being smarter, its been proven that in the long run men make the better choices. Women worry about too many things. Then again there are a lot of female secretaries out there that act like wannabe doctors.

The same was basically true in the engineering dept. at my alma mater the University of Waterloo. At that time (25 years ago) women stayed away because engineering students were coarse, drunken, sexist, misogynist reprobates who created a hostile environment for any women in the program. Great parties though.

Remember a couple years back when Mattel introduced a talking Barbie doll that said "Math is hard" and they had to pull it off the market because of the feminish outroar...

Maybe Barbie was right afterall...
