The Wall Street Journal has published a sequel to their infamous wave-generating article "Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior" written by Amy Chua based on her book Battle Hyms of the Tiger Mother. Only this time, the we're on the opposite end of Eurasia. Like its predecessor, this article, "Why French Parents Are Superior" has generated... Read More
Mr. JayMan Jr. has arrived! Here he is with his dad. And here he is with Grandma, well one of them: So you folks will understand if I'm a bit behind on the posting for a while. Though I have been paying attention to goings-on out there. So this is to the folks out there... Read More
Continuing my ongoing investigation into fertility, I wanted to take another look at who's having children. This post will look at fertility from a different angle: the spread in fertility by sex, IQ, political orientation, and education. I was prompted to this by a recent article describing parenthood in Norway. It found that a fifth... Read More
ABC News ran a story two nights ago about men and women and story cited that women are, on average, lighter sleepers than are men, being far more easily awakened. (Now I'm sure Heartiste and a few others will have a little bit of fun with this particular video.) It featured ABC's current female TV... Read More
Due around the beginning of next year:
This is my 100th blog post. Upon reaching this milestone, I thought that this would be a great time to take moment to look back at my experience as a blogger in Human BioDiversity (HBD) and share my thoughts on the things to come. 1. The Beginning 2. Fertility 3. Immigration and the economy 4.... Read More
This post is meant to serve as a prod to certain of my smart liberal friends to start having children. It will come as no big surprise to my long time readers. The 2012 General Social Survey (GSS) results have been released. I decided to take a quick look to see if certain trends were... Read More
To demonstrate a point that I have asserted at various points – a point that tends to be often indirectly hinted at in the blogosphere and only occasionally stately concretely, I again avail to maps to tell a tale. First, I'll start with a previously featured map of fertility rates across Europe: This is a... Read More
Following up on my previous post, a commenter over at Ellen Walker's Complete Without Kids responded to my comment there with this: I wanted to see if this was in fact true. So I took a look at what the GSS could tell me. First, I used the CHLDIDEL variable, which reports the answer on... Read More
Over at Psychology Today, clinical psychologist Ellen Walker has a blog called Complete Without Kids, which is dedicated to the modern child-free (presumably professional) adult. There, she extols and rationalizes the conscious decision to not reproduce. Of course, it's not like Psychology Today isn't loaded with the typical cutting-edge suspect psychological wisdom, and it isn't... Read More
EDIT, 5/30/15: [Post updated with results of new meta-analyses of behavioral genetic studies. See below!] Edit, 1/3/13: [Post updated to reflect additional information provided in the comments. See below and see the comments.] The time has come for a little reminder of the First Law of behavioral genetics. In my final post of 2012, I... Read More
There has been a lot of discussion in the blogosphere as of late as to whether the "cads"—i.e., low paternal investment, promiscuous (and often low-IQ) men were siring more children than "dads"—high paternal investment, monogamous, high-IQ men. While I and others have produced some evidence (primarily from the GSS) that tenuously indicates that this is... Read More
A common theme that circulates in the HBD/Game blogosphere is that, in the wake of the sexual revolution, an increasing number of men end up mateless, thanks to the fact that a minority of men ("alpha males") monopolize most of the women. A commentor over at Peter Frost's blog even attached his own made-up numbers... Read More
Commenter redzengenoist has brought to my attention that in his homeland of Denmark, policy seems to have accomplished two rather remarkable feats: Fertility among non-Western immigrant women (primarily Muslims) is down to 1.88 children/child-bearing woman, from a high of 3.4. And, more importantly, the fertility rate among educated Danish women has nearly caught up to... Read More
Post edited (9/28/2012), see below! A new study was released, discussed by Ilana Yurkiewicz at her Scientific American blog, that seems to conclusively prove that gender bias in the sciences does exist. The article describes the challenges involved in studying this and how these challenges were overcome: It’s tough to prove gender bias. In a... Read More
Following up on my three previous posts, I want to talk again about what to do with this HBD knowledge. It is now clear, or at least should be, that demographic issues drive many of our current problems. Indeed, changes in the population drive history, and these changes are the primary reasons that civilizations rise... Read More
Following my previous post. [youtube especially be mindful:
Ron Gunhame over at Inductivist has an interesting post looking at out-of-wedlock births had by Americans, by political orientation. By looking at the GSS data, he seems to have found that among the never married, conservatives were far more likely to have children. This is interesting, for one, because of its implications for my "pioneer... Read More
By BENJAMIN RADFORD, Discovery News Jan. 22, 2012 A study followed nearly 20,000 students from kindergarten through the eighth grade in 1,000 public and private schools. The researchers examined the children's weight and found that in the eighth grade, 35.5 percent of kids in schools with junk food were overweight while 34.8 percent of those... Read More
New blog post #2! Recently a doctor at Harvard University, David Ludwig, claimed that some parents—those of children who are morbidly obese—should lose custody of those children, for the child’s own good. This is reported in this news article from ABC News here. Here are some quotes from the article: Of course, if you read... Read More
EDIT: Post updated, 3/17/14. See below! Welcome to my blog! New Blog post #1! So I moved over from Blogger.com because it didn’t allow people to comment without signing in. Why would I want to restrict people that way? So this post is mostly copied from that site with a few changes. This will be... Read More
