If someone wrote this in a blog all people would cry out how stupid he is stating the obvious. Now that “science” has stated the same, the article is published and re-posted everywhere as “important” news.
But I guess this is what people always wanted: someone with “authority” to verify what they already know. This is what religion said for thousands of years now, just validating the inner beliefs of men that they are no different than… God. Nowadays the new religion of science has come into play. Validating the inner beliefs of men that they are different than… women.
Sit down and think.
You are the authority.
You know things.
All you have to do is accept them.
