The other day I became aware of two sites (which are linked to one another) which could both use a good ol’ fashioned meerkat smash. The first site is mattforney.com, which I won’t link directly to out of principle. I will however, be quoting from it quite extensively.
From an article Forney wrote back in 2014: http://mattforney.com/myth-female-intelligence/
I am smarter than nearly all the girls I’ve ever known.
That’s not arrogance talking: it’s the truth. Out of all the girls I’ve known, maybe three were at least as smart as me, and of that three, one is more intelligent than me. All the rest were my intellectual inferiors. I don’t hold it against them; in fact, when I run across girls who tout their “intelligence,” I feel nauseous, like I’m dealing with a pack of overeager Mormon missionaries.
I’m not at all convinced Forney is more intelligent than most of the women he knows. Might he be in theory smarter than some of them? Sure. He also admits that there are women out there as smart he is – but what exactly is the criteria at work here?
The truth is, men and women process different information in different ways. This doesn’t lead to any inherent advantage one way or the other. We are simply different.
One of the most dangerous delusions of modern America is the idea that girls are desirable because of how smart they are. Indeed, the idea that intelligent girls even exist in significant numbers is ridiculous. Puffed up by you-go-grrl propaganda from the media, their heads filled with lies from the universities, every girl who can spell her own name suddenly thinks she’s Einstein. Worst of all, girls think that being able to spell their own names entitles them to a good man, even when they’re bossy, defiant and lacking in feminine graces.
In other words, he feels threatened by the idea that women might be capable of doing the same work as men. It undermines him and his sense of masculinity if women are seen as functioning human beings rather than objects.
The reality is that truly intelligent females are rare, and most girls who consider themselves “smart” are not. More importantly, the idea that men should find female intelligence attractive is as preposterous as expecting them to find hermaphroditism sexy. A girl’s most important aspects will always be her beauty, her charm and her willingness to please, with intelligence so far down the list that it might as well not be on the list.
Emphasis mine. He reaffirms his position that women should be treated as objects. Does he not wish to have good conversations with his significant other? Once again I say he feels threatened – a lot of his precious world view comes crashing down if women are to be considered as human beings.
1. Few girls are actually intelligent.
This is the most important thing to know: intelligence is largely a masculine attribute. IQ testing has consistently shown that while men and females have the same mean intelligence, men have a wider standard deviation while females cluster around the middle. In layman’s terms, this means that there are more intelligent men than there are intelligent girls. At the same time, it also means that there are more unintelligent men then unintelligent girls, which is why the short bus tends to be a sausage fest. The “dumb bimbo” stereotype is a fiction invented by ugly girls.
This is flat out wrong. As my earlier link shows, there are differences between male and female intelligence. There are tasks that men are, on average, better at than women. Equally, there are tasks where women are, on average, better than men.
His derision toward people with mental disabilities (hence his ‘short bus’ remark) does not help this ‘analysis’.
2. Girls are intellectually inferior.
Several months ago, I was on Twitter killing time when some teenage girl started sending rude and insulting Tweets at me because she was offfeeennnded at my article on why most girls shouldn’t bother going to college. I initially ignored her, but when she continued to harass me, touting her “4.0 GPA” and how smart she was, I clicked through to her profile and did a little research. Turns out that this oh-so-intelligent young lady was spending $58,000 a year to major in acting. Furthermore, while she was not unattractive—she had a good bone structure, a cute face and huge… tracts of land—she was at least twenty pounds overweight, so several of my followers started calling her fat. What was her response?
She started sending pictures of herself to me in an attempt to prove she wasn’t fat.
This girl wasn’t stupid; she was clearly four or five points above the mean female IQ. But not only did she massively overrate her intelligence, she was unwilling to accept that maybe, just maybe, she had made some poor choices in life.
Maybe, just maybe, using Twitter as a marker for average intelligent is a colossal mistake. If I did that with my fellow men, I’d be reaching some shocking conclusions about intelligence. Forney also displays some unreasonable attitudes toward body size, but somehow, this does not come as a surprise.
That is the modern “intelligent” girl; an intellectual vacuum. Her life one great big fraud from beginning to end. Despite her vaunted “smarts” and her belief that she can “do anything,” she doesn’t major in math, engineering, computer programming or any discipline that requires actual work. No, she picks a soft major like English, education or ethnic studies, where there are no standards and you can pass any nonsense in for a grade so long as you sound authoritative. She rationalizes her choices by saying that she wants to “help the children” or she’s “interested in learning,” despite the fact that all American education does is teach people to memorize Marxist nonsense and repeat it back word for word.
He thinks that learning to be a teacher is a ‘soft major’! Forney lacked credibility before, and now he’s on a minus. Dismissal of other fields of study in order to undermine female intelligence is a desperate measure. Also, to further interrupt the narrative Forney is concocting in his mind, women are steadily becoming more represented in fields like Engineering – from the ASME website:
“In the U.S., about 18 percent to 20 percent of engineering students are now women, an improvement over the abysmal numbers of 25 years ago,” says Joanne McGrath Cohoon, an associate professor in the Department of Science, Technology, and Society at the University of Virginia, where 31% of undergraduate engineering students are female.
Clearly, intelligence isn’t the driving force behind why women are under-represented in certain fields – it’s more to do with pre-existing prejudices, and Forney wants to uphold these. It suits his narrative.
Claiming that girls are intelligent because they earn the majority of degrees is like saying that parrots are intelligent because the majority of them can mimic human speech.
When she graduates, assuming she isn’t spat right back into the service industry, she’ll go to work as a government bureaucrat, HR commissar, paralegal or other profession that contributes nothing to society. She’ll complain about the pay gap even as she takes every day off she can because her “head hurts” or she “needs some time off with the girls.” She’ll whine about the lack of girls in management roles even as she plans to quit her job when she has kids… but not until she’s in her thirties, of course.
Maybe it’s just me, but this post is coming over as increasingly angry. He’s now attacking the job choices of women (assuming they are in fact, choices, and not because of false ideas around ‘traditional’ roles). He’s attacking the female work ethic too – the funny thing is, women and men are capable of using any excuse under the sun to get time off or go home early – I’ve observed this in equal measure – it certainly isn’t a female-dominated trait.
After all, she wants to “have fun” first and “get it out of [her] system” before she settles down.
But it’s in her choice of hobbies that the modern “smart” girl truly exposes her vacuity. She doesn’t spend her free time reading science textbooks or perfecting her chess game: she TiVoes Teen Mom and obsesses over Lena Dunham’s cleavage. If she reads books at all, she limits herself to trashy mainstream thrillers like The Hunger Games or textual pornography like Twilight. Her weekends are spent pumping chumps for peach daiquiris at the dive bar and getting pumped by every stud who stirs her loins. Even so-called “nerd girls” are phonies, as their “nerdiness” extends to playing video games once in a blue moon or re-Tweeting charlatans like Neil deGrasse Tyson.
I wonder if Forney objects to men who ‘have fun’ first? I doubt it somehow.
Also, how many men in this day and age actually engage in truly intellectual pursuits? His remark about cleavage is ironic – a lot of MRA and MGTOW sites obsess over the objectification of women as sex objects – is this an ‘intellectual pursuit’?
The only thing separating her from a ghetto baby momma is the ability to form complete sentences.
Face it: the vast majority of girls are as hollow as a drum. The three or four surplus IQ points that college-educated girls have are wasted on them, because all they’re used for is rationalizing a life of mindless consumption and sluttiness. If the modern West is a cesspool, girls are its most devoted coprophages, gulping down runny diarrhea by the bucketload with forced smiles on their faces.
What is there to say about this? It’s not rational; it’s bitterness in web form. Forney is descending into vile attacks on women out of… what? It can only be hatred, and I would be fascinated to learn what triggered this in him.
3. Girls know that their “intelligence” is a lie.
As loudly as they brag about their “strength” and “independence,” girls know inside that their credentials are worthless in the eyes of men. Go back to that chubby acting major who started insulting me on Twitter. Me pointing out that her degree was worthless didn’t faze her, nor did my reminding her that she was wasting sixty grand a year for it. It was calling her fat—insulting her looks—that wounded her most deeply.
And she was so insecure that she resorted to begging for validation from me, a man she considered a “misogynist.”
It’s pretty shallow to attack someone based on their looks, but I wonder if Forney sees the irony in that? I don’t think Forney actually understands any woman, judging from the increasingly hostile nature of this post.
The vagina is the perfect representation of the nature of females. An empty vessel, a hole, a void with no identity of its own. Without a man to fill her with his essence, she is as useless as a crabapple rotting on the sidewalk. Only by taking that essence deep inside her can she mature and become the woman she was meant to be. And filled with the wrong essence, she becomes an intellectual Typhoid Mary, mindlessly infecting others with her diseases of the mind.
Yeah, we’re now officially entering lunatic territory.
The rest of the post is pretty much in the same vein, and as such not worth continuing with.
