    The office of BGLTQ Student Life at Harvard University has released a new school-sponsored guide telling students to “fight transphobia” and “get the facts about gender diversity.” The guide, which was distributed to students on campus, declares that “there are more than two sexes” and that “gender is fluid and changing,” adding that someone’s gender identity “can be affirmed and/or expressed in many ways,” and can even “change from day to day.”

    “I just wanted to check,” the teacher said. “Your child wants to be called a boy, right? Or is she a boy that wants to be called a girl? Which is it again?” I cocked my head. I am used to correcting strangers, who mistake my 7-year-old daughter for a boy 100 percent of the time. In fact, I love correcting them, making them reconsider their perceptions of what a girl looks like. But my daughter had been attending the after-school program where this woman taught for six months. “She’s a girl,” I said. The woman looked unconvinced. “Really. She’s...

    Jonathan Haidt is a social psychologist who has been in the, news sharing his erroneous theory of morality in a mistitled book, The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion. Dr. Haidt bases his theory of morality on the atheist assumption that evolution is a non-purposive mechanism, driven by random mutations selected for survival functionality. From that spiritual void, Dr. Haidt tells us morality is an artifact of evolutionary sociobiology. "Evolution shaped human brains[, resulting in] evolved psychological mechanisms that work together to suppress selfishness and make social life possible." Social life is the universal human...

    Some say the growing rush to label children ‘transgender’ promotes physician-approved child abuse. But speaking out against the practice provokes ire. Who will defend the vulnerable? When Cari Stella recounts her transgender experience in a series of YouTube videos, she doesn’t shed tears, but she does talk about pain. As a teenage girl, Stella felt a strong desire to live as a man. A therapist...prescribed testosterone. Stella was 17. A few years later, she underwent a double mastectomy. Stella says her family was supportive, and her workplace included transgender leadership. Her transition seemed like a success. Except it wasn’t. Soon,...

    LUCKNOW: Rudyard Kipling's Mowgli came alive in the jungles of Katraniyaghat in Bahraich district, 200 km from Lucknow, when local policemen rescued an eight-year-old girl from a troop of monkeys recently. The cops had to face resistance from the simians before they could rescue the girl. Mowgli, the man-cub protagonist of Kipling's ‘The Jungle Book’ was reared by wolves’ pack in 'Seeonee hills', now in MP. The girl was spotted when a police party of Motinagar range in Bahariach headed by sub-inspector Suresh Yadav was on routine night patrol in the woods of Katarniyaghat. “We spotted her playing among apes....

    Even if a guy has a great personality, a woman looking for a date still hopes he's at least a little cute, a new study suggests. Researchers asked young women (ages 15 to 29) to choose potential dates from a series of photographs and descriptions, while the women's mothers (ages 37 to 61) were asked to select possible boyfriends for their daughters using the same information. Results showed that a man's looks influenced both groups of women more strongly than his personality profile. This held true even if a man's profile was filled with highly desirable personal qualities, such as...

    Based on a brainchild of one its students, Laguna Hills High School officials had the mirrors taken out of the school’s girls’ bathrooms … and replaced with notes of “affirmation.” The notes include little sayings such as “You are important” and “You are loved.” Sabrina Astle, a member of the school “Kindness Club,” said she came up with the idea because she wanted to “make a difference.” “The signs have helped people remember that everyone is beautiful, everyone is important, everyone is good enough and everyone should be treated equally. I did this because I am passionate about the fact...

    Men have become more aggressive in negotiating with women since the 2016 election, according to study from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Corinne Low, Wharton Business Economics and Public Policy professor, and doctoral student Jennie Huang didn't intend to test the effect Donald Trump's election had on the difference in men's and women's negotiating patterns when they conducted the test last fall. But that is what the data showed, the Washington Post reported. "Not only was the communication more aggressive, it was also less effective," Low told the Post. In a Battle of the Sexes game, 232...

    Are you a racist if you aren't physically attracted to certain features? Of course not. Everyone has preferences that catch our eye. Maybe you like redheads, or women who look like Beyonce, or both or neither. Having such preferences means you're a human. But if you don't suppress these preferences, you're a racist according to this Social Justice Warrior:

  • Millennials don’t act like adults until they are 30 (or even 40), research finds

    Yahoo News UK24 ^ | March 24, 2017 | Rob Waugh
    Previous generations thought of themselves as adults by the time they were 22 or 23 – but for millennials, that moment comes much, much later. Many millennials don’t act like adults until 30 – and some don’t live a ‘grown up’ lifestyle until the age of 40. Many youngsters have delayed moving out of their parents’ home, and put off getting jobs – driven in part by the global economic downturn, but in part by the tolerance of their parents. David Poltrack of CBS said that while the idea is ‘controversial,’ ‘Their baby boomer parents have really coddled them. They’ve...
  • 'A sea of despair': White Americans without college degrees are dying younger

    In 2015, a pair of economists received widespread attention for their study showing that since the late 1990s the death rate has been rising for middle-aged white Americans. Now a new analysis by the same Princeton University team has identified which part of that population was driving that trend: people without college degrees. White men and women in every age group between 25 and 64 who did not have college degrees saw their mortality rates increase between 1998 and 2015. Those with degrees saw their mortality rates decrease. “There are two Americas,” said Anne Case, who conducted the research with...
  • Question for Freeper women: Crying men?

    03/23/2017 11:48:04 AM PDT · by MNDude · 138 replies
    I was recently listening to radio host, Glenn Beck, and he proudly announced that he cries really often as if it is a badge of honor. I have noticed there are many men who like being seen crying in public: Bill Clinton, Schumer, Boehner, Anderson Cooper, my former pastor. I have not known many men to cry in public, well my former roommate in college, but we always made fun of him when he cried. I was raised that crying for something other than a death in the family for a man is not the thing to do. Perhaps I...

    When the Supreme Court imposed phony marriage on the entire country, the LGBTs were left wondering what to do next, how to keep their issue boiling?Some of them, chief among them radio host/activist Michelangelo Signorelli, accurately predicted that the conservative Christian response would be to protect religious freedom, that the Christians would beg to be left alone, not forced to participate in morally objectionable religious services.Other homosexual power centers responded by pushing the transgender thing even though they had never really been interested before. A cursory look at the New York Times demonstrates that there were next to no stories...

    When Becky Albertalli published her first young adult novel, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, with the HarperCollins imprint Balzer and Bray in 2015, she never expected it to be controversial. She’d worked for years as a clinical psychologist specializing in gender nonconforming children and LGBTQ teens and adults.* Yet her book—about a closeted gay kid whose love notes to a classmate fall into the wrong hands—contained a moment that rubbed readers the wrong way: Simon, the sweet but clueless protagonist, muses that girls have an easier time coming out than boys, because their lesbianism strikes others as alluring.

    There’s no easy way to rate dog intelligence. As psychologist Stanley Coren wrote back in the 90s, there’s adaptive intelligence (i.e., figuring stuff out), working intelligence (i.e., following orders), and instinctive intelligence (i.e., innate talent) — not to mention spatial intelligence, kinesthetic intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, and more. Indeed, as animal behaviorist Frans de Waal has argued, humans tend to judge animal intelligence in limited and unfair terms and often bungle the experiment. While labs at Yale, Duke, and around the world are studying this question, for now we do at least have data on one metric: working intelligence. Coren, in...

On November 9th, around 8:30 in the morning, Michal Kosinski awoke in his hotel room in Zurich. The 34-year-old had traveled here to give a presentation to the Risk Center at the ETH [Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule or Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich] at a conference on the dangers of Big Data and the so-called digital revolution. Kosinski gives such presentations all over the world. He is a leading expert on psychometrics, a data-driven offshoot...
