Heather E HeyingHey @RoyalSocBio, #iamabiologist. I co-authored this paper in one of your journals. Note the reference to “eggs” in the title. “Eggs” refers to the gametes of females.

Nonsense becomes dogma, «woke» activists turn into left-wing authoritarians: the principles of the Enlightenment are collapsing faster than we might think. We must resist while we still can.
Heather E Heying“The gains made by 20th century liberalism, & any chance of confronting the big issues still before us, are being eroded by a new ideology. This ideology—call it the woke left, or the authoritarian left—traffics in blatant falsehoods & untestable claims.”
Heather E Heying@joelle_emerson There are many of us, from all over the political spectrum, who see in Critical Race Theory an anti-scientific, anti-human ideology. This essay might shed some light. You sound genuinely open and curious; if so, I would be happy to talk with you.

Heather E HeyingAnd the great @DouglasKMurray in conversation with @joerogan—well, just do yourself a favor and watch (or listen). Brilliance wrapped in humor that is by turns fiery, and exasperated. Exquisite.
In this episode of the podcast, Sam Harris speaks with John McWhorter about race, racism, and “anti-racism” in America. They discuss how conceptions of racism have changed, the ubiquitous threat of being branded a “racist,” the contradictions within...
Journalist Lenore Skenazy was dubbed “America’s Worst Mom” in 2008 for a column about letting her nine-year-old ride the subway alone. The controversy led her to speak out about finding safe ways to allow kids to be more independent and she founded...
Biden must show he can stand up to the toxic wokeness that dominates elite institutions—including a significant segment of his own party—in order to unite the country
Heather E Heying"The millions of undecided voters who will determine this election are not actually stupid or deranged: They see with their own eyes how leaders within liberal institutions have wilted when confronted with mau-mauing from the woke left." from @jkirchick
How do we defend free speech while pursuing social change? Heather and April dive deep and defying political stereotypes in all directions.
Heather E Heying“If we are going to conflate individuals with the populations that they are part of, & say that you are responsible for the sins of your forefathers,…that feels to me like the end of democracy.” –from my conversation with @AprilALawson at @braverangels.
In a video recorded from his hospital bed, Mr. Blake, who was shot by the police, says, “It hurts to breathe; it hurts to sleep.”
Heather E HeyingBuried deep in a laudatory piece from the @nyt, “On the day Mr. Blake was shot, the woman who reported the [sexual] assault called 911, saying that Mr. Blake was at her home.”

An internal review in the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests has led to an audit into some rooms and items
Heather E HeyingMuseums were established to “legitimise a racist ideology,” and “covert racism exists in the gaps between the displays.”
Museums are racist. What isn’t in Museums is racist.
Silence is violence. Words are violence.
Why are we celebrating such traps?
Both sides are getting their information through purposely bottlenecked media reports, and the results are predictably distorted and dangerous.
Heather E HeyingWhen reporting from Portland, “You do not show activists' faces. You only show activists in a defensive position: responding to, rather than inciting, violence. You enhance what can appear to be police brutality...” An important read from @NancyRomm
Sex came first. It arrived before any concept of self or other, before there was care for anyone at all. And certainly before love. Sexual reproduction first evolved 1.2 billion years ago, eventual…
Heather E Heying“Is letting the children you will never meet feast on your corpse a kind of love? It is dedication, to be sure, but it is not love.”
From "Sex, Love, and Sexual Autism", my latest essay in @AreoMagazine.
