Quickies: Evolution of human birth, doctors treat women’s pain differently, and Trump on autism

  • The evolution of human birth – The latest video from Brain Scoop.
  • Your pain is not real: How doctors discriminate against women – “According to a ResearchGate investigation, there are more than five times as many scientific studies about erectile disfunction as there are about PMS, although 19 percent of men report suffering from erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives, compared to the 90 percent of women who have experienced symptoms of PMS.”
  • Social justice must be complicated because oppression is never simple – “But this argument that paying heed to “Identity Politics” is divisive or destructive is not only wrong, it runs counter to how we approach any other complex issues in our society, and underscores a fundamental misunderstanding of how systemic oppression works.”
  • Donald Trump has a dangerously misguided view of autism – “For Trump to be spewing rumors rather than facts and science, he’s in a position to cause real damage to both the perception of people with autism, and the potential progress we’re able to make in diagnosis and care over the next however may years we have left with him in office.”
