A man on average is stronger and more dangerous than a woman. Finally, there is the testosterone level. A man is generally going to be capable of greater levels of agression than women. Naturally, none of this adds up to men automatically being pedophiles (or rapists, or killers or whatever), but there's naturally going to be a greater fear present.

Oh, yeah, and women suck at math% Statistically significant differences in averages are not always as important as practical similarities in distributions, and the etiologies aren't particularly clear between genetics, environment, testosterone, and aggression. We have a lot of correlational observations, and some counterintuitive experimental results. People just don't A) have the right information or B) understand how to interpret information. Thank you, Fox News and our educational system%

I'm not saying there are no practical differences. I'm just saying that 99.9% of the population has no idea how to even evaluate relevant information, and current perceptions are way off from reality in a damaging manner, and contribute to a terrible self-fullfilling prophesy.

perhaps... perhaps not. It really isn't relevant. if 99.9% of the population evaluates something logically incorrectly, but in the same incorrect manner, then essentially they are correct. Consensus reality. Gay marriage is a sin, not because of any edict from Jay-Z or whatever higher power the rest of the country believes in but because most people believe that some higher power denoted it a sin. Whether he did or not, or whether there is even a higher power is irrelevant.

Point being, whether women suck at math or not, if no one will allow them to do math because of the belief that they suck, then the end result is the same.
