It’s also highly controversial. I like to think of myself as working for a more egalitarian world and truth be told, whilst a really interesting and evocative insight, I think much of the article was badly researched when trying to take it into a more general spher (i.e. To take it into a position where you can truly say “man” and “women” and use those with statistical confidence). The research does not back up all the positions of a number of the claims within, which I find worrying. We can’t generalise to all women or all men, simply because we reference people with particular, valid experiences. At most, all that does, as bad as it is, is state “in people who have experienced Y, they are prone to X” it doesn’t say anything about Z who aren’t in that set at all. It risks a form of Simpson’s paradox, which in itself means we cannot generalise that to all men and to be honest, I don’t think your disclaimer goes far enough in that regard.
