Testosterone Rex is a really stupid book. Interesting that none of the Establishment reviewers noticed. Anyhow, I was talking with a friend, and he opined that this is always the case – all the books by self-professed feminists are stupid. Since the world doesn’t work the way they’d like it to, this might seem inevitable, but on other questions I have to say that at least some of the people pushing false theories do a technically better job, are more proficient obscurers of the truth. For example, when Lewontin said that most genetic variation in humans is within-group [true] and therefore Pygmies can’t really be short [but they are short], he was pushing something untrue, but he didn’t sound nearly as dumb as Cordelia Fine when she claims that a guy getting tons of nookie won’t end up with extra kids.
If there are counterexamples, tell me.
