Now, a couple of fun links:
Chris Clark in Creek Running North: Belief in Evolutionary Psychology May Be Hardwired, Study Says [via Allison, the Economic Woman]:
A new study, published in today’s issue of the German publication Unwirklichen Genetikjournal, ... [suggests] that some men may be genetically predisposed to believe in evolutionary psychology, a finding that may well suggest future methods of treatment of the psychological malady.
Believers in evolutionary psychology maintain that feminism sets itself in opposition to millions of years of anthropoid evolution, and is thus futile and inhumane to men. Allegations made by believers include references to putative differences in math skills between men and women, a supposedly irresistible but entirely non-visually stimulated female attraction toward powerful and/or arrogant males, and the existence of a genetically preordained male right to multiple female sexual partners.
Finally, the girlfriend in today's xkcd cartoon makes a deep observation: "You have to get out either more or less. I can't decide." Don't you want to know what made her say that?
