Intelligence doesn't depend on your biological sex. It's entirely basedon the individual, their upbringing, the access to education that they've had. People define intelligence in different ways. You are right that more men are in the STEM sector but that's a problem regarding social construct not a lack of intelligence on one part.
Basically this

Biological sex =/= how intelligent someone is.

If we look at school results at gcse level girls outperform boys every year

but like someone pointed out, I think men are more varied in their intelligence level so you are more likely to get an extremely smart man, and an extremely dumb man ...than an extremely smart woman and an extremely dumb woman..


so to answer the question are men smarter than women?, I would have to say yes ...but also no

Women have a lot more obstacles to overcome so when a woman really makes it in science, commerce or academia, she must be extremely able to have over come sexism and other examples of structural violence she would have faced to get there.

Yeah men are generally smarter.

This is because the neurons in a male brain are more densely packed so therefore neurons can connect to each other faster and transmit signals more efficiently.

Sorry for going anon can't risk it.
Reference?

I don't imagine there is a significant difference. I don't think average GCSE results or number of people entering higher education or earning STEM or whatever degrees are telling statistics regarding the intelligence of each sex. People are encouraged differently depending on their sex, and even if they weren't, I believe the sexes are innately differently inclined toward things anyway.

Tbh I don't underestimate women in terms of intelligence... I was a bit surprised seeing the other comments of how men could be smarter.
IMO we just have to accept that there are smart people and people on the other end of the spectrum in every gender... there's not much of a difference nowadays in school

Girls have never been given an equal chance at education. When boys were being sent to school and made to work in workshops, girls were cooking and cleaning. Which do you think is a better environment to invent stuff? This is like saying that America is more developed than India, and so Americans are smarter.

Girls outperform boys at SAT and GSCE. If you're talking about career choices, society socializes (brainwashes) girls into these. As Rowanne's answer stated, it's not easy going for girls in STEM. Think about how it would be for a guy who really want to do a diploma in home ec. This results from stereotypes and not interest. Sociological research shows trends increasing of girls in STEM careers as in-bred stereotypes lessen and girls are allowed more chances. Besides, what makes you say that arts and literature don't require brains?

Sexists getting triggered lol. By the way, "feminist" isn't an insult

women are smarter. As another person pointed out, there's more variability in our minds.

But in overall numbers, women have higher entry into higher education and in general have usually done better in GCSEs too.

Dont think it really inherently matters for anything
Higher entry because men are more likely to study STEM subjects whereas women are more likely to study social sciences etc. which are far easier to study and be accepted into.

Men don't study STEM because they're better able. It's because men prefer it more than women.

Also that still doesn't explain why women do better at GCSEs and A levels.

Also you didnt address the fact that men have more variability in their minds than women so thats why it gives the impression theyre smarter even though on average that isnt the case.

Your argument is weak.

Historically in terms of achievements yes, obviously, due to circumstances that still take place today but inheritably no - they are equal imo.
