Susan Pinker: The Gender Gap

As I get ready to study gender issues this term, psychologist Susan Pinker is on hand to inform us that males are fragile. If the slides and data are any indication, men are on track to being extinct in some far future.

Susan Pinker paints a bleak picture of males.

Men die around 5 years earlier than women, cognitively develop slower, commit more suicides and get into more accidents. Prisons are stuffed with more men than women. Men develop more chronic diseases and fewer social networks than women.

Food for thought. 🧐
