The erroneous statement "So much for your theories" indicates a belief that a single data point out of tens of millions of data points regarding men's and women's test scores would invalidate all the data.

Nobody who's even remotely familiar with averages or probability or statistics would make such a claim, so then we must question what kind of test she refers to as being "off the scale", and how she majored in numerical mathematics and never learned what an average is.
