I did not read the link, but the social sciences are just like the physical sciences in that some researchers are crappy, some are good, and a few are outstanding. I personally put myself in the fair to middling territory…at best! Wrapping up, anyone engaged in the pursuit of scholarly knowledge gets a hat tip from me.

In general, I do not pay too much attention to all this blather about how certain people are supposed to act, and trivial discussions about proper gender role. For me, the best teacher has been life experience. Not People Magazine, not TV armchair psychologists, and certainly not geeks from an Academic journal. To me, it comes down to just being a normal dude, trying to not be a jerk, trying to have some common courtesy, and above all else having self-respect. It all seems to sort itself out. I do not think it takes rocket scientists to put it all together!
