Women with higher IQs are less likely to have children. Apparently.

Another day, another silly theory about women choosing not to have children...

There are many reasons women decide not to have children - but could their intelligence be one of them? A new study seems to think so.

According to work by Satoshi Kanazawa, a researcher at the London School of Economics, a woman's urge to have children decreases by a quarter with every 15 extra IQ points.

Cross referencing data from the UK's National Child Development Study against economic and education controls, Kanazawa found that the more intelligent the woman, the less likely she was to have children.

Sigh. Anyone else fed up of nonsense studies like this? Show of hands...

Of course, it should be pointed out that Satoshi Kanazawa was fired from Psychology Today after his highly controversial and wildly offensive study 'Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?' - so you know. Probably not going to take much notice of this one either Kanazawa.

Sucks to be you.
