Someone suggested last night that there should be a whole weblog devoted to debate about Theory Six. This is NOT that weblog. However, a female reader from Oldham, WI wanted me to post her reaction to the claim made by a JFW detractor that boring women outnumber boring men. She writes: "i think it is an empirical and observable fact that there are many, many, many, many, many more boring men than boring women."
Who knows? All this sounds suspiciously like a job for... quantitative social science. I wonder if there is any data that would allow for the identification and enumeration of boring people, so one could tabulate the relative frequencies within each gender.
