Kudos to Echidne

As I've said previously, it's not often I agree with Echidne of the Snakes, politically or regarding feminism, but she has put together some very fine posts over the last week regarding evolutionary psychology (particularly Satoshi Kanazawa) and her regular roundup of stories regarding the abuse of women. At first, these areas don't seem linked, but the problem with Kanazawa's work is one can certainly see where adhering to his theories (such as that men should dominate women) can lead to abuse of women (such as this article about Somali Islamists whipping women for wearing bras). Much food for thought here.
