Evolutionary Psychology Bingo!

PunkAssBlog has seen a Great Need, and filled it. Evolutionary Psychology Bingo! This particular bingo card specifically addresses the antifeminist/sex-essentialist uses of evpsych.

My splorf favourite? “Confusion over whether they’re rationalising polyamory or nuclear-family patriarchy, but whatever they’re rationalising, only men evolved to enjoy it.”

Dark favourite? “Rape is an adaptation.”

Stuff I’d most like to see added in a second edition? I think further explorations of racist and ableist evpsych might be interesting.

  1. Heh! Great stuff.
    Where’s the square about how it’s ‘natural’ for research with no scientific basis to get funding (from conservative bodies)?

  2. Perhaps the whole central square should actually be “IOKIYAR” (It’s OK if you are Republican*)
    *or whatever local equivalents apply

  3. Hahaha! I spent a few hours earlier this month tearing apart an article whose evpsych claims offer more than a couple bingos on this card. My favorite — and the most difficult to counter, in my opinion — is the “science isn’t PC” square. You just know it’s going to be sexist/ableist/racist/etc. if there’s “This isn’t going to be PC but . . .” in there. Thanks for posting this.
