Christina Patterson; The world needs men to be more like women and women to be more like men

IF you have a vagina, you might be pleased. You might, it's true, not be all that happy that it seems to be the rudest, nastiest thing footballers can think of when they yell at each other on a pitch. You might, it's true, not be all that happy that having one doesn't seem to boost your chances of high office or high pay. But if you have a vagina, you can take some comfort from this: you may well be brighter than someone who doesn't.

If, like me, you read that women are getting brighter and wanted to find out more and Googled "women getting brighter", you might, it's true, find quite a few entries saying that "Millions of women are getting brighter washes".

But if you started again, and swapped the word "brighter" for the letters "IQ", you could get rid of all the washing and learn that a world expert (who doesn't have a vagina) has done tests which show that women are more intelligent than men.
