The Gender Myth

Last week a prominent weekly magazine did a cover story titled "Gender Myths". A few things which were considered true by them( or by the public, since they said, they conducted an opinion poll) are as follows:
  • Women make better bosses than men.
  • Women can do math better than men.
  • Nonsense.
  • More nonsense.

And no one is protesting. What would've happened if the same magazine said the following things?
  • Men make better bosses than women.
  • Men can do math better than women.

Feminist groups all over the country would've burned the magazine copies.

People resent the notion that intelligence is connected with gender. As long as it's against women, that is. If the bias is against men, then gender somehow makes men less intelligent, perverts, sexual predators and all the bad things a woman can imagine!
