Transgendered research

I complained last week about sex discrimination research by the transgendered Prof. Ben (nee Barbara) Barres, but it is actually worse than I thought. Volokh points out
that Barres wants to forbid any politically incorrect views from even being hypothesized. Volokh also notes that Barres used bad data, and that Nature refused to print a correction. Steven Pinker and Peter Lawrence say that Barres misrepresented their views.

With so many people so eager to prove Larry Summers wrong, you would think that they would be able to come up with better arguments.
