>Kara Swisher on Travis Kalanick

Uhhh what about JOHANA BHUIYAN?

She's not worthy of a mention?

According to the recode article byline:

"BY KARA SWISHER AND JOHANA BHUIYAN"

Why no mention of Johana?

Just because Ms. Bhuiyan wears a Hijab doesn't mean she's unworthy of mentioning.

[https://www.recode.net/authors/johana-bhuiyan](https://www.recode.net/authors/johana-bhuiyan)

According to recode:

"Johana Bhuiyan
Senior Editor, Transportation"

Transportation. Senior editor.

Seems she is worth a mention as much as Kara Swisher.

I thought Gruber was a liberal who goes out of his way to let everyone know what a liberal he is.

Even though Gruber ignores Ms. Bhuiyan, at the very least she can drive a car, by her self, in America.

Kara Swisher has been driving more and more SJW narratives all over the tech scene.

Uber wouldn't exist without that guy, nor would its copycats. There might be something else, but there might not.

But more generally, the thing that frustrates me is the denial of sexual dimorphism between men and women. That men and women pursue different things and have different capabilities in different areas. The SJW stuff assumes that there is no difference between men and women but some ephemeral culture, and handwaves away things like the brain volumes being different.

haha wut. if you're talking about physical capability, ok. are you saying that men are smarter and more capable than women, or vice versa?

Universities have been majority women since 1991 -- over 25 years. Clearly they are being granted opportunity. Yet they are starting < 2% of meaningful businesses. There is something different about them.

Then there is this: http://www.aei.org/publication/2016-sat-test-results-confirm-pattern-thats-persisted-for-45-years-high-school-boys-are-better-at-math-than-girls/

Then there is this:

"All the research I’ve done points to a gender difference in general cognitive ability. There is a mean difference of about five IQ points. The further you go up the distribution the more and more skewed it becomes. There are twice as many men with an IQ of 120-plus as there are women, there are 30 times the number of men with an IQ of 170-plus as there are women."

The genders are not exactly the same. Sorry to break your delusion.

Except none of them are in STEM. They're in education, health, etc. This gets handwaved away by people like Kara Swisher as sexism and a problem with the culture.

Nevermind that these gender differences persist all the way back to infancy, and show up in infant primates. Baby monkey girls play with sticks like dolls. Baby monkey boys like trucks and attack each other with sticks.

if only IQ was an actual measure of success!

It isnt and never has been. It's just one look at an aspect of intelligence.

Socialization and society in general also plays a role in the success of people and that is where we are failing.

Stereotypes for gender and race are enforced by society from childhood. So girls are subtly discouraged from pursuing interests in the way boys are.

If it were true that "women just cant do this" then we would have to deny the technical contributions women have made a war time etc.. when we have needed them to step up to the plate.

The reality is pseudo science like IQ etc.. has been used to justify gender and race inequality by for centuries. Sadly it's pretty much white men who have advocated these theories for centuries. And strangely enough it's always white men who feel they are the judges of all humanity as to what everyone should or shouldnt be doing.

the question in my mind is, what the fuck is going on in the heads of "white men"?

I think the answer to that one question would actually solve all the worlds problems :-)

But it is. It's highly correlated to income, longevity and other important factors.

And it's not just IQ, but tests like the SAT and ACT correlate as well.

> The reality is pseudo science like IQ etc.. has been used to justify gender and race inequality by for centuries. Sadly it's pretty much white men who have advocated these theories for centuries

Except Jewish and Asian men are at the top of the distribution.

> If it were true that "women just cant do this" then we would have to deny the technical contributions women have made a war time etc

They are much rarer at top IQ distributions, and they choose to pursue STEM careers at a much smaller rate.

If it was any other way, do you think that the massive encouragement for women wouldn't have had an effect on enrollment or job candidates over the last 20 years? It hasn't.

You're the one making up screeds and acting like it's true without linking to any data.

What the fuck do you think the Chinese, Japanese and Koreans are doing, dumbass?

White men built a country so great and free and full of equal opportunity that people from all over the world want to come here. And we've accepted more immigrants than any country in history.

But you can keep attacking whites anyway. Identify politics is all the left has left.

Statements here:

1: Whites built a country that is great because it's full of equal opportunity.

2: Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, and Jews are the smartest people by race.

3: There are more extremely smart men than women (but on average, their IQs are equal, because there are more very stupid men than women too)

These are perfectly reasonable points of conversation. I know you'd like to ban all thought that doesn't consider every human being exactly the same, but this is not eugenics.

Gruber the Booger:
I can't speak for what "white men" are thinking. But I can speak for lots of men in general and what they may be actually doing.

Men are building the world around you.

Take a look outside.

Who built just about everything you see?

Men.

Nearly every road, telephone pole, building, school, library, house, park, hospital, the list is endless.

All built by men by a vast majority versus women.

Are there some women who build the world we live in? Sure there are, but the numbers don't lie. It's almost all men.

Women take the desk jobs while men risk their lives building shit.

I own a few rental properties and every time I need to have a drain snaked out, it's always a man who does literally the shit work. And about 80-90% of the time you know what causes the clog?

A tampon.

Roy Baumeister muses on this on 'is there anything good about men'. Sure, some men are high-IQ overachievers, but some men are low-IQ failures. The distribution spread is wider than for women. Men have to take more risks to achieve, etc. Men build structure, women build intimate relationships, etc.
