Enemy of the People

Aretae looks at Gender differences, from an evolutionary point of view.

Gender Differences

Gender Differences part II

This is all double-plus ungood stuff, and all Right Thinking People™ will unhesitatingly condemn it.  The rest of us will go "hmmm", particularly on his conclusion:
Our current society makes lots of noise about shunning:
  1. violence
  2. real risk (of failure)
  3. competition
  4. real autonomy
That's one smart dude.  The unstated, but related, topic is the belief that's at the core of the Progressive movement, and has been since the beginning: that millions of years of hominid evolution on the African savanna can be overcome by the correct social indoctrination.  I'd love to see some sort of metrics on that one.
