It’s a media meme that never dies. But Women’s e-News has a very nice article debunking it. A sample:
Take the “fact” that women with high IQs are “too smart to marry,” as The Atlantic magazine put it. Almost none of the stories with the scare headlines reported that the data were gathered from men and women born in 1921. The women are all now in their 80s.
Should a study of octogenarian women be taken as the reality of today’s young people? Of course not.
