Harvard President Creates a Storm of Controversy for These Politically Correct Times

Harvard President Lawrence Summers has suggested that women, on the whole, lack the natural ability to excel at mathematics and science that men have. Naturally, this has radical feminists upset. Radical feminists have long believed that male and female roles are interchangeable because "gender" is "socially constructed." Of course, if Summers is right, this is nonsense.

Read the article here and decide.

What if I agree that men and women are different, but argue that the extent to which those differences apply to mathematical abilities are relatively trivial? I mean, gender isn't an all or nothing proposition.

I invite you to visit my weblog, mcraig.blogspot.com, for further elucidation.
