Sometimes there are general societal claims made in the vag, that people refer to authoritatively, because they are supported by the field of so-called "evolutionary psychology." In short: evolutionary psychology - the field - is about as grounded in logic as a religious narrative. Links between the claims made in the field of evolutionary psych and actual Darwinian selection are highly tenuous. Back when we were still in possession of demosnat, these evolutionary psych style statements would come up a lot. They were truly retarded, but she was a cute girl, so we gave her an easy time of it. More recently I seem to recall other posters bleeting implicit support of evolutionary psych. Happily, a book just came out from a geneticist lampooning the field of evolutionary psychology better than any argument I will ever make in the Vaginarium. This is just an enormous pet peeve of mine Next time some pseudobiological pop psycho bullshit bubbles up on "Yahoo's 10 Evolutionary Reasons for Why Men Like Sex, Women Like Drama," we can actually point to the arguments tidily collected in this book FYI - IWYWB - I'm making this thread preemptively so that the next time one of these idiotic comments comes up I can just post a link rather than rehashing. This peace-loving, fuzzy, and adorable thread is indirectly related to giving advice, so please don't break it's hard-working little heart by locking it.
