I think that his claim is that, since (if) Weschler intentionally omitted
subtests that men did better on than women, that the bias for a false
equality was built into the test from the beginning.  If he indeed eliminated
all subtests that show a gender difference, then of course you will not find
studies that demonstrate a difference.

But then one is never entirely sure what the nincompoop (JK) really thinks.
