The Progressive Need For Nurture

  • Grumpy

    What shocked me is how tightly the vote in Boston’s white suburbs correlated to average income. Trump won the least prosperous white suburbs, while Hillary scored up to 80% in the wealthiest burbs. And they say Republicans are the party of the rich.

    I think people deserve to get what they vote for, so Wellesley, Weston, Wayland et al. are due for some high-rise Section 8 housing projects.

  • Deplorable KEK

    The made-up concept of ‘gender’ is a weird mix of nature and nurture.The progs are trying to get the benefit or stability of nature while still allowing the self-definition of nurture. For some reason you can’t say “born that way” about intelligence, though.

    They really don’t care about nature vs. nurture as a debate about the nature of reality. It’s just adopting the language of people they hate and adding a veneer of seriousness to gather power. Politically, “it’s not your fault, it’s someone else’s, so vote for me” is pretty effective, so whichever of the two is easiest to blame will be blamed. A failure to nurture will be blamed about education, while a disrespect for nature will be blamed when a woman doesn’t want to share a bathroom with a man.
