Thanks to Peter Forster:

An interesting article on sex, height and intelligence is at:

F4L:  Without a doubt, misandry (hatred of men) is the motivating force for pulling the enormous hoax that the first paragraph from the article identified.  That resulted in decades of slandering of men through deliberate falsification of “scientific” research.  That falls into the category of violence, for which reason this entry has been linked to the category “women’s violence.”
