I think she was talking mainly about the "rate of change" seen on these issues

why have opinions about homosexuality changed so fast while other things (women's rights, racism, ageism, body size) haven't? I believe it's because it's easy for people to see gender and age and race and body size. it's easier to make a judgement about someone based on their appearance than about their lifestyle/choices (not saying homosexuality is a choice, although some think it is).

Angela Lowell Would you suggest there's been no progress on women's rights, race issues, perception of age, body shame, and a multitude of other causes? Is dismissing the progress made and the people who've made huge sacrifices beneficial in any way? We can acknowledge progress and continue forward at the same time. Thank you.

Upwards of 75% of babies prenatally diagnosed with Downs Syndrome are aborted. Is eugenics really a thing of the past?

This type of research has little positive influence on the society. Some people are striving to make zip codes not matter to children's future, but this researcher only cares about the 1%.

great episode. Glad to finally have some seriousness in a discussion about the influence of genes and environment in human traits.

And just like that we are another step "removed" from real life. Fake conversations, fake friends, fake food, fake sex...

This can be great for society as long as there are boundaries. child or animal sex dolls/robots should be a boundary.

This is a morally corrupt lifestyle that if normalized, has the potential to further devastate society in countless ways. Seeking a relationship with inanimate objects is sad and these people need help.

Bilal Johnson Oh I don't know Bilal, maybe something along the lines of therapy and counseling. At first I was going to suggest taking them out for some ice cream, but then I saw the absurdity in that.

So many inferences made subjectively by the researcher. Whatever happened to the scientific method? Too many possible influences ignored here.

Rudy TheCat Identity politics happened. #MeToo happened. There is no longer "truth"…. just "speak MY/YOUR truth" then condemn all dissenters who dare question as the enemies.... seeking to keep the patriarchal/racial institutions in place for pure self-interest greed.
