this week in anti-evo psych

Newsweek science writer Sharon Begley voices powerful criticisms of the ev psych movement. Read the whole thing, as they say.

See also. The author's style and tone is considerably different from mine, and there are parts of the excerpted conversation with which I don't agree. But the lines "[T]he whole appeal of the field is that it calls back to One True Natural Human Experience, before the dag-blasted condoms came to take it all away. and it seems - by sheer magical coincidence! - to be a version of True Humanity in which women ought to be sexy, men ought to be powerful, and violence against women makes you happier and more successful" -- nicely underscore what I find so odious about the field.
