I would like to fix the broken links to "Sociobiology and Evolutionary psychology" on this page, but I'm not sure the best strategy. So I thought I'd ask. Then I can apply this fix wherever I find similar broken links. Should I:

  1. Change the links to link directly to the Wikipedia articles on these topics
  2. Remove the links in text and add links to the Wikipedia articles under the "Further reading" section
  3. Create empty pages on GeekFeminism with those titles and a body like "This article has not been completed. Please help complete it." and add links to the Wikipedia articles under a "Further reading" section in those empty articles?

Fallacy of Distribution Edit

This topic is also related to the Fallacy of Distribution (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacy_of_distribution). Basically, if there are real or perceived differences in the 'mean' of some characteristic (physical strength is an obvious one) people often ignore the variation within group, turning it into "(all) women aren't strong enough to be firefighters" instead of something like "fewer women than men are strong enough to be firefighters." 71.202.84.190 19:49, August 8, 2013 (UTC)
