  • ... I do believe that there are biological differences in the minds of men and women. However, I can understand why some of my fellow academics in women's studies resist this notion, however unscientific I find their position. The inconvenient truth that men ... seem content to leave unaddressed is that, under patriarchal social systems — which still dominate the entire globe — different is unequal. Patriarchal rule is based on the assumption that the male is the standard and the female the exception; that qualities inherent to the male are more desirable than qualities inherent to the female.
