  •  Ahh, so that's what this is about. (12+ / 0-)

    Now I get it.  Even the "highest IQ in the world" makes mistakes, because, after all, we are human.

    But to point out those mistakes, we must be attacking because she's a woman.

    Thank you for making this clear to me.  Unfortunately, even though I'm a woman myself, I don't feel the need to take up a cudgel in vos Savant's defense.  I encountered her errors myself.  She made them.

    And if you're going to make a career out of having "the world's highest IQ" then you have to expect to be called on your mistakes.  Male or female.

    Have a nice day!
