Exploring the evolutionary origins of modern sexuality

Satoshi Kanazawa Is the Rush Limbaugh of Evolutionary Psychology

My take on the Kanazawa mess.

People keep asking for my take on the recent response to Kanazawa's latest provocation. It boils down to: "What took so long?" I mean, this is a guy who has worked hard to attract as much attention as possible by insulting pretty much everyone he could think of, from Muslims to women with weight issues to horny men. Here's something I wrote a few years ago in response to one of his smug taunts, which is pretty applicable to his latest jabs at black women. Essentially, I don't take him seriously at all because he's clearly motivated more by attracting attention than by any enthusiasm for science or truth. 'Nuff said.




If you're interested in the neo-paleo movement, I'm quoted in this article from yesterday's Boston Globe.
