In a development that may doom humanity, it seems smart women don’t want to have babies as much as the feminine dullards breeding among us.
The study, conducted by a man for some reason, determined a woman’s urge to have children decreases by 25 percent for every extra 15 IQ points.
What is an “extra IQ point?” I presume every point over 100, the standard mean IQ score.
Satoshi Kanazawa, a controversial (more on this adjective later) psychologist at the London School of Economics, said 20 percent of 45-year-old women in England are childless, but among women with college degrees that figure rises to 43 percent.
The notion is not entirely new. A Pew study conducted in 2010 stated women with advanced degrees are least likely to have children.
Kanazawa, in his book The Intelligence Paradox, doesn’t seem happy that smarter women are saying no to motherhood. The first chapter of the book, “Why Intelligent People are the Ultimate Losers in Life,” states “voluntary childlessness” is “truly unnatural.”
It’s also truly unnatural to type 80 misspelled words a minute, but I do that every time the boss looks over here.
Kanazawa has a way with words (and flawed research). He was last in hot water when he presented ’scientific’ evidence that black women are less attractive. He was subsequently dismissed from writing for Psychology Today and his current employer, the London School of Economics, prohibited him from publishing in non-peer-reviewed journals.
In 2008, before getting canned from Psychology Today, he said American leaders were not hateful enough.
Here’s the genocidal prose from Kanazawa, which, for some unexplained reason, has not been pulled by Psychology Today:
Here’s a little thought experiment. Imagine that, on September 11, 2001, when the Twin Towers came down, the President of the United States was not George W. Bush, but Ann Coulter. What would have happened then? On September 12, President Coulter would have ordered the US military forces to drop 35 nuclear bombs throughout the Middle East, killing all of our actual and potential enemy combatants, and their wives and children. On September 13, the war would have been over and won, without a single American life lost. Yes, we need a woman in the White House, but not the one who’s running.
Meanwhile, other studies suggest humanity’s IQ has dropped 14 points since the 1800s. Why? Because “intelligent women tend to have fewer children even as the planet’s population explodes,” writes The Globe and Mail.
At the current rate of regression, humans may be unable to figure out how to turn on “Honey Boo Boo” by 2100.
