…[W]hat troubles me most is how often an overly simplistic and reductive understanding of biology is dragged out in an attempt to refute the validity of some of these [gender identity] categories. My first instinct is to correct and clarify the science, but in all likelihood the science isn’t actually at the root of the issue so much as an attractive rhetorical option.

I promised we’d take the occasional break from evolutionary biology and simulated quandaries to check in on other science headlines, and that time has come. I’m going to try a slightly different format, more of a news roundup than a ramble on a single story. The biggest story of course is the landing of the […]
Previously in the Quandary Den, I gave you a chance to do some evolutionary artificial life experiments for yourself. I hope you got an opportunity to at least run a couple of different rounds with the simulation.
Last week I introduced you to my escape room/dungeon crawling/superhero training simulation and a few basic results. I don’t want to keep all the fun for myself, so now it’s your turn.
What do you with a biologist who isn’t great with living things?
