73. I'm not threatened by intelligent women!
I'm a woman, and an academic, and strongly opposed to sexism in academia and everywhere!

However, I am also opposed to 'swiftboating' (I've seen too much of it in the academic world) and to believing accusations about people without solid evidence.

To be blunt, implying that anyone who questions the allegations about Einstein must be sexist or must hate or feel threatened by women, sounds a little like saying that anyone who challenged the justifications for the war must 'hate America' or support terrorism. It's not always true that 'whoever is not with us is against us'.
