Smart women may be worse

London evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa writes:
Intelligent women make the worst kind of parents, simply because they are less likely to become parents in the first place. There is also some evidence that children of more intelligent women are more likely to suffer from health and behavioural problems, probably due to the fact that they tend to have children later.
He once got fired for writing this:
What accounts for the markedly lower average level of physical attractiveness among black women? Black women are on average much heavier than nonblack women. ... However, this is not the reason black women are less physically attractive than nonblack women. Black women have lower average level of physical attractiveness net of BMI. Nor can the race difference in intelligence (and the positive association between intelligence and physical attractiveness) account for the race difference in physical attractiveness among women. Black women are still less physically attractive than nonblack women net of BMI and intelligence. Net of intelligence, black men are significantly more physically attractive than nonblack men.
He also wrote on Why Modern Feminism Is Illogical, Unnecessary, and Evil. I would not take any of this stuff too seriously.
