So THIS is why there are so few conservative biologists!...maybe

This letter from today's WSJ (A17) was so good...I love the borrowing of Al's terminology. A clever twist.

"I find it fascinating that the left-wing guardians of political correctness would have us believe that there is no genetic/neurochemical basis for gender differences in career choices or success therein (which I suspect is false), but that there is such a basis for sexual preferences (which I suspect is true).

"This way they can claim gender discrimination against women in science and engineering ("Academic Inquisitors" by Christina Hoff Sommers, editorial page, Oct. 16) while supporting gay rights by simply selecting or deselecting the same reasoning. A convenient inconsistency."
