Can you say "backlash"?

So apparently I was wrong to take issue below with the blog post titled "Should Nancy Hopkins be driving?" It's been called to my attention that we women are hormonally disadvantaged, and our lack of testosterone causes us to be bad drivers and horrible map-readers. This can, it seems, be determined by the length of our ring fingers relative to our index fingers (a comparison that can also indicate who among us is a lesbian, they say):
Writing in Intelligence, the researchers, led by Dr Petra Kempel, said women who had 'male-like' finger length ratio patterns outperformed other women.
To which I will say: Travis' middle finger is the longest of all of her fingers and she lifts it in a salute to these researchers.
