Come on, Jeremy Corbyn, give us the full Jack Nicholson. We can handle it | Marina Hyde | Opinion | The Guardian
“Corbyn’s decades of adventures in freelance peacemaking. So many wreaths … Corbyn … gives the impression of struggling to place things in his past, and even then being on the back foot about them. He’s done quite a lot of this rubbish. Not all of it has been rubbish – not even remotely. But some of it has. And some of it has been absolute trash. That, perhaps, is the hardest truth to handle – but until he does, we’re stuck with this drama on loop.”

Silicon Valley’s weapon of choice against women: shoddy science | Angela Saini | Opinion | The Guardian
Indeed, psychological studies show that there are only the tiniest gaps, if any, between the sexes, including areas such as mathematical ability and verbal fluency. Navigating this complicated field for my latest book, Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong, I was told by a prominent American researcher into sex difference that he no longer refers to brains as sexually dimorphic, because the science simply doesn’t support this. There isn’t a neuroscientist alive who can say with confidence which sex any given brain belongs to.

... What [evo psych fans] fail to understand is that there are published scientific papers out there to support every possible opinion, even that black people are intellectually inferior to white people. Getting published doesn’t make an idea true, it only means that someone has managed to get it into print. In evolutionary psychology, theories are sometimes little more than speculation strung together with scant evidence.
