Poking fun at Science, feminist style.

One of the most common “sexist” remarks/jokes/excuses i always hear is:

“Women h; meaning, men are superior”

Some use it as an undisputable argument (hey, it is science!), others derive endless jokes about it that even include “3a2l l mara azgar min 3a2l l djejeh” and so on…

The sad part is that anyone making this “smart” statement has probably not opened a science magazine for the last 20 000 year.

If they did, they would have read somewhere that for the last 20 000 year, as humans got exponentially smarter, the human brain has been getting smaller.

To whom do we owe this “discovery”?

John Hawks, a researcher in anthropology (do not confuse him with the anthropology dude in the Bacardi ad)

In Sept 2010, John Hawks was in the middle of explaining his research on human evolution when he dropped a bombshell. Running down a list of changes that have occurred in our skeleton and skull since the Stone Age, the University of Wisconsin anthropologist nonchalantly adds, “And it’s also clear the brain has been shrinking. This happened in China, Europe, Africa—everywhere we look.”

So wait! Let’s get this straight…

Studies show that as humans were getting smarter, their brain was getting smaller. Meaning that a smaller brain does not mean dumber/inferior person! Woohaa! Women are not inferior?

(If you are a sexist reading this, I will give you a few minutes to let this sink in, I know it’s kinda embarrassing)

Instead of boring you with different theories on the brain size, just for the fun of it and for only once I want to take the time to combine accurate studies, research and science facts and put them together to support one big wrong perspective and to demonstrate how sexism and science combined together form a lethal dose of stupidity. I am also creating this stupid theory so the next time a stupid sexist person drags you to their level, you will be armed with a stupid enough theory to argue with them since rational talk does not help. So here it goes:

Studies showed that the human brain is getting smaller as we get smarter, it is a known fact that women brain is smaller, meaning that women are ahead of men on the evolution path.

As the brain shrinks, its wiring becomes more efficient, transforming us into quicker, more agile thinkers while a bigger brain is bulkier and slower.

What is a bigger brain for anyway, you may wonder. Christopher Stringer, a paleoanthropologist and expert on human origins at the Natural History Museum in London says:

“As a general rule, the more meat on your bones, the more brain you need to control massive muscle blocks.”

The Homo sapiens, who had the biggest brains, lived 20,000 to 30,000 years ago in Europe. Called the Cro-Magnons, they had barrel chests and huge, jutting jaws with enormous teeth. Consequently, their large brains have often been attributed to brawniness rather than brilliance.

Unless you want to argue that currently we are a dumber race, this forms a blatant proof that smaller brains are better. Men have larger brain to help them control their bigger bones and muscle structures. It has nothing to do with being smarter. On the contrary, their bigger brain structures are making them less agile and slower thinkers.

The brain organ is also known to be such a glutton for fuel, it gobbles up 20 percent of all the calories we consume.  So it takes a higher amount of energy to build a bigger brain and more energy to maintain it. In terms of survival this is really bad and in other words natural selection and evolution is favoring female bodies and brains. (Less energy cost for a more effective and smarter brain – the resemblance to smaller more effective CPUs or “computer brain” is striking)

Zooming out from the brain and taking a look at the whole human body, if you compare the male/female structure, you will notice that men are closer to our ancestors when it comes to posture, walk and even quantity of body hair.

Women have a more aligned posture in general and have a more gracious walk. While men still show more common traits with our ancestor, they also have a more primitive aggression. Women, on the other hand, are known for their more emotional side and social behavior.

Since evolution does not happen overnight, it means it will take a couple of thousand years for men to catch up with women (if that is ever to happen). So till then or at least for the next 20 000 years, kindly refrain from using the sexist comment that started this article.

*disclaimer (again) : the above theory backed with true facts is used to prove how sexism and science combined together form a lethal dose of stupidityand I, its author declare it a total sexist wrong theory and want to make sure it is clear to everybody that I do not endorse it. However, if you do endorse it, I reserve the right to find you, pluck your eyes out and keep hitting your head until your brain leaks out through your eye holes. And please do not leave comments to prove the above theory wrong. I already know that!
