I feel the same way. Like I couldn’t date a guy who insists poring gasoline into a fire is a smart idea for example. The exact IQ isn’t important to me just that the use there head.

Are we? All data I saw shows that women are more intelligent on average but that men dominate the extreme ends of both spectrums.
That data looks at prepubescent boy and pubescent girls, not adults. Girls hit puberty first, then boys; after that, men are smarter than women, on average. It's a feedback loop of Affirmative Action recipient female teachers, their students and men to lazy to investigate. Maybe that's why I'm here?'A 2004 meta-analysis by Richard Lynn and Paul Irwing published in 2005 found that the mean IQ of men exceeded that of women by up to 5 points on the Raven's Progressive Matrices test. Lynn's findings were debated in a series of articles for Nature. He argued that there is a greater male advantage than most tests indicate, stating that because girls mature faster than boys, and that cognitive competence increases with physiological age, rather than with calendar age, the male-female difference is small or negative prior to puberty, but males have an advantage after adolescence and this advantage continues into adulthood.'en.m.wikipedia.org/.../Sex_differences_in_intelligence
While you cherry-picked that one and most results say "inconclusive" you seem to be right according to wikipedia. Maybe I need to refresh this. Been some five years since I went over it. At least the larger variance and male prevalence on the extreme ends seem correct! To be honest I do find these types of things very interesting so cheers for sharing it.
If you sourced your data and looked at the ages, you'd say: girl are temporarily smarter than boys and men are smarter than women. Only white men don't receive Affirmative Action in universities and the workplace and only we earn our place.
To be fair we reproduced it back in highschool. Performing a standardized IQ test on my own and a few other willing psychology classes. Girls in our sample of 100 or so people were indeed scoring higher. All scores above 140 were boys. Also mostly guys at the very low end. So since we tested it and it added up I had little reason to question what was taught. I find my teacher taught in a responsible manner. I'll however dive into this topic someday when feeling motivated. Am not keen to make it political. Like I said, I do find it interesting and to me it is a more "cool how the brain works" sentiment. But I'm happy to agree we differ!
Your biased anecdotes > relevant studies.The greater variance thing only applies to males before puberty, afterward, the variability is the same for both sexes and after puberty males have a higher Average IQ. You think what the Affirmative Action recipient, female teachers want you to think, so you'll give women undue credit.
The so called anecdote was not used as scientific basis for an argument mate but rather to explain my previous notion. I also strongly disagree: Reproducing an experiment is a very reasonable approach to establishing right and wrong. I clearly never assumed it to be absolute or I would not have, quite instantly, agreed with your source earlier. Despite the bulletpoint of your source being that the results were not deemed significant and so can not be used scientifically for more than "maybe". After all I am willing to infer things and there is a recurring tendency.Furthermore your source also repeats the more variance thing. Over and over. Men having more extreme values is not a bad thing for us, quite the opposite. I should not need to explain how having your best be better is an arguable positive if we want to compare genders.
Those little blue numbers hyperlink the sources and they clearly list ages for study participants. Were you to investigate this, your opinion would change, but certain kinds of men are followers of women, so they can never lead.
