Who invented an unfounded belief of prejudice towards your own group for use as an excuse to explain away said groups natural predisposition to fail in some areas relative to members of other groups in the absence of actually bothering to look at any evidence and think rationally about it?

I think it was diane abbott but Id have to look it up

One surprising difference I find is the fact there are no great female composers, this also runs into modern popular music. Yet when it comes to writing...Jane Austen, Brontes, George Elliott, Agatha Christie and also art........ Angelica Kauffman, for example, women are well represented despite not having equal opportunities in centuries past. Got to be some difference in the brain when it comes to music composition.

Could be something in that. Most people think woman are generally better dancers than men.

Its just not true. They just look better when doing it. A wee experiment - next time out with people dancing - find a group of burds - them imagine they are a group of old bald blokes. Its quite an eye opener.

Interesting point - I think it may have something more with music and (art)painting being more socially acceptable for men to be able to pour their emotions into.

No one bats an eyelid at Rachmaninov or Tchaikovsky writing highly charged love themes, but writing romantic slush? - nah, just not done old chap. All that pent up male emotional suppression has to go somewhere.

Young girls get taken to ballet and tap lessons, young boys do not. I think that must help them. Blokes have to start from scratch when they first go to nightclubs, but at least women have had a few years grounding in some dance lessons.

One surprising difference I find is the fact there are no great female composers, this also runs into modern popular music. Yet when it comes to writing...Jane Austen, Brontes, George Elliott, Agatha Christie and also art........ Angelica Kauffman, for example, women are well represented despite not having equal opportunities in centuries past. Got to be some difference in the brain when it comes to music composition.

Until the 20th Century, and Leavis and Eliot promoted literature as a 'legitimate' university topic, novel writing was considered to be beneath the ambitions of the intelligent young man. As a result the barriers to women were not as high as you'd expect.

Music on the other hand...

But are you sure you haven't heard music written by women? Queen Victoria's favourite song of Mendelssohn's was written by Felix's sister – he had some of her pieces published under his name because that was the only way it was going to happen at the time. There is a pretty long list of female composers although I'm sure this will draw the reply "oh well, none of them are Mozart, yadda, yadda..."
