Scientist says women all sound the same

No, not something I would assert as true, but a stab at the kind of headline many journos use to manufacture controversy out of science. And she happens to be a female scientist[1] talking what looks like good commonsense[2], unencumbered by the need for Political Correctness and fear of transgression.

Shame then that a Reg journalist stoops to introducing "lack of diverse training examples" in reporting it. The Inquisition is always with us.

[1] I presume, from the name Rachael.

[2] That is to say, it's intuitively credible, and doesn't look like Agenda Science.
