Dumbed down science


2016-05-28 dumbing down

My conversations on sex and gender are getting more and more bizarre. People are sending me notes about basic biology and links to news items on the politics. How is one supposed to respond to that? Explain yet again that the biology is NOT the question or that might does not make right? Read more of this post

The sexy politics of gender-science


2016-05-13-sexy science-3

I am not happy to write this post. It is in a way sad that I have to. I believe I made all the arguments and all the explanations in my previous posts (Let’s be careful what we wish for, Why it matters and ‘Scientific’ gender diversity), but it seems that, yet again, I ran into the problems of the ideological divide.

“Scientific” gender diversity


2016-05-04 half-man-half-woman-2-300x2882-288x276

I had a conversation with a couple of scientists a few months ago that I still cannot get over.

2016-05-01 hydro rates-1

I woke up to the news that our hydro rates are going up. There is nothing new about that. Ontarians already pay the highest rates in North America, but that is no reason why they couldn’t or shouldn’t go even higher. What was news, is the reason behind the rate increase.

Taxes are worse than theft


2016-03-28 Taxation is the problem

I just wrote two posts that seem to contradict the title of this one.
In the first one, I made the point that the state can harm our financial well being in many ways and taxation is not the worst. Focusing on it is short-sighted.
In the second, I exposed the intellectual laziness of the attacks on taxation, pointing out that the real target should be the enablers of those taxes.

The faces of power


2016-03-15 facets of power

Another police shooting in Toronto.
I learned about it from CP24.
Tag line below the announcer’s picture:
