    Professor Eric Rasmusen Attacked By His University For Tweeting Article About Lack Of Women Geniuses

    "The College Fix is reporting that Professor Eric Rasmusen of Indiana University is not quite being fired for this Tweet of a Lance Welton article:

    “geniuses are overwhelmingly male because they combine outlier high IQ with moderately low Agreeableness and moderately low Conscientiousness.”

    Are Women Destroying Academia? Probably . . . "

    However, his employer is calling him "vile and stupid" and imposing ridiculous conditions.
    Indiana University is letting students opt out of classes by a professor with “vile and stupid” views on gender, sexuality and affirmative action, and subjecting him to double-blind grading so that he can’t tell which student he’s grading . . ."
    Feminists attack! "The lady provost of Indiana University Bloomington, Lauren Robel, [Email her] is the "vile and stupid" commenter.She also writes,
    "He has posted, among many other things, the following pernicious and false stereotypes:

    • That he believes that women do not belong in the workplace, particularly not in academia, and that he believes most women would prefer to have a boss than be one; he has used slurs in his posts about women . . ."

    Look at those you can't criticize to see who rules over you.

    Not that the professor is necessarily right. Maybe low conscientiousness and agreeableness is a result of, rather than a cause of genius.

    Maybe it's modern thing, but most females I meed are far less agreeable than men. They are far more intelligent; partly because they get preferential treatment.

    One thing is for sure, and I would agree with him on this point. Geniuses are overwhelmingly male. This is because they channel their sexual drive into their intellect; thereby allowing them to make huge intellectual leaps.

    A woman cannot do that because she chooses to live a life of comfort by posting a few pictures on instagram of her ass and breast - and making millions out of it.
    A mother cannot raise a boy to be a man, not because he needs a father figure; but because she favours team vagina over her own son.

    Tradcon women are the most manipulative of all kinds of women, because they infect you with false hope.
    Radfems are your best friend, because they hate you and verbalise it - that's honesty!

    The red pill rage is a process which takes many many years - so be kind and patient with yourself.

    Well, I've always thought it's a good idea to keep one's opinions to oneself when it's tied to one's employment in an oppressive environment that doesn't tolerate truth and common sense. My dad used to put it this way: "You gotta know how to play the game. You gotta know how to work the system."

    The obvious exception would be when one's opinions can be monetized.

    Doctrine has always been a major problem within academia. Many of the 'geniuses' we now hold in high regard were ridiculed and even persecuted in their day. This will always be a problem, especially with educators, as debating the merits of their views undermines the essence of who they are.

    Seems to me only the focus has changed, not the underlying problem.
