    Did you know it was a woman that invented Windshield Wipers. Shortly afterwards the car was then invented. Now that's forward thinking.

    Depends what you mean by intelligence, there is not doubt that our minds work differently and that we are good at different things (eg the makeup of science courses is heavely scewed towards males).

    Karl Friedrich Benz (November 25, 1844 – April 4, 1929) was a German engine designer and car engineer, generally regarded as the inventor of the gasoline-powered automobile.

    HOWEVER, it was his wife Bertha Benz who invested in Benz's business in 1871, enabling him to develop the first patented automobile and in 1888 she was the first person to drive an automobile over a long distance.

    OHHH!!!!11 schooooled b!tch. YEA suck it.

    All you actually said there was that a woman paid a man to develop his invention, not refuting the point at all which was that men have invented most things (I am not agreeing, disagreeing or forming any opinion on this, just stating that your post is meaningless).

    Really? All my science classes are pretty evenly split. That said, most guys I know want to be Engineers or Physicists, while we girls are leaning more towards biology based courses. Strange that. We overlap in chemistry so there's usually long debates on physics vs biology.

    But to answer the original question, neither gender is more intelligent. There are clever men and stupid men, clever women and stupid women.

    Yes that's why they managed to use their equal starting point to now hold 80% of the top jobs, oh wait they don't men do /thread.

    Thats only cause women were stopped from being educated so they didnt have a chance to discover anything.
    But when we did... we kicked ass!
    For example, men went off to war... And along came Florence Nightingale

    Men are better at some aspects and women others. You cant say one is cleverer in general and you cant say they are equal either.

    I read that women are academically better than men, but men earn more.
    Women are smarter than men but men adapt to situations better than women
    or Women are still smarter than men and they usually don't get the top jobs because of maternity leave when they get pregnant and with them in a high position it could be bad for the work place. (But I doubt this is the case)
    this is just my opinion

    In my opinion, neither gender is superior in regard to intelligence, so no.

    In the UK men are far smarter than women. This maybe due to deeply ingrained sexism making women do stupid subjects, but just go to any hard degree course and the majority will be men.

    As for race, that clearly makes a difference. Chinese kids will always perform better than blacks or Arabic children.

    So what you're basically saying is that a man did invent the car? Well done...

    When arguing the case for women being the most intelligent sex, you don't bring inventions into the argument lol, idiot...

    Individuals act individually, not as a collective based on their ethnicities or sexes. I really do not see the value of averaging people, as if other people who are incidentally of the same sex or ethnicity have any psychological influence on an individual who also happens to be of the same sex or ethnicity. Why has somebody's individual intelligence been subsumed into an average comprised of completely psychologically unrelated persons?

    Not to mention the fact 'race' is a social construct.
