While much can — and should — be said about the offensive remarks Paul Tudor Jones made concerning women [“Billionaire investor’s take on motherhood roils U-Va.,” Metro, May 24], he also displayed considerable arrogance with the implications he made about his own profession.

Mr. Jones is certainly entitled to his opinion about the depth of intensity required for success in global macro trading. However, I’m quite sure that many surgeons, pilots, military generals and police officers — to name just a few stressful professions — could successfully argue the high level of intensity needed in their fields. Perhaps Mr. Jones should be dissuading mothers from those careers as well.
