I’m admittedly not the biggest fan of the Huffington Post, but you know, they’re not all bad. Anyway, saw this article this morning.
I’ve been bad at math since about fourth grade. “Bad” is relative: on recent intelligence tests (I’ll explain in a blog post soon), even my weaknesses measure at or above average. So “bad” at math isn’t really that bad. But I’m still not great. However, finding out that I might be genetically inclined not to understand fractals and long division makes the grieving process (for my future as a geneticist or forensic scientist) much easier. Okay, so there’s not really any proof of the gender gap, but I’m going to run with it: Damn you, double-X chromosomes and breasts! (Hah, mark this as the first time they’ve actually gotten in my way.)
