Sometimes men disgust me.

If men can't take corporate executive jobs without committing white collar crime perhaps the solution is not to not hire them for such jobs.


Just like in studies of gender and IQ, I think what you find is that there are more men than women at BOTH extremes of social behavior. While there's very little gender difference in mean IQ or "G", there are more men than women at the extreme ends. Out beyond the second or third standard deviation, there are more men with IQs above 130; and more men with IQs below 70. More men who are brilliant scientists; more men who suffer mental retardation. More men who are C-level corporate leaders; more men who can't even hold down a job. ...And yes, in the same vein, I suspect there are more male sociopaths and extremely "successful" male embezzlers.
