So, so tired of evolutionary psychology crap, but it's used to prop up the bogus bigotry of the alt-right.

evolutionary psychology is undoubtedly real, but their are crackpots in every field. I can image more in fields where racists find a foothold. talks a lot about it from a very much not alt-right perspective.

@musicman You've cited a site by a guy who doesn't seem to have had any education in evolutionary biology.

Dharma Punks is not "a guy" actually, but that one does appear to be Noah's site:
If you believe humans evolved, and that psychology is a real thing that humans have, then evolutionary psychology is a tautology.

@musicman But that's not the thesis of EP! EP tries to argue that statistical differences between extant human populations derive from selective genetic differences.
