Video excerpt

A new study sheds light on taboos in science confirming that race and IQ are the most taboo subject of all. They condensed down a bunch of statements into 10 most taboo topics in all of psychology. Let me read to you the top 10 from the study. 

The authors of the study began by interviewing 41 Psychology researchers to get an idea of which topics are most taboo. Using the different researcher answers as a guide, they condensed those topics into a set of 10 statements.
Number one – The tendency to engage in sexually coercive behavior likely evolved because it conferred some evolutionary advantages on men who engaged in such behavior
Number two – Gender biases are not the most important drivers of the underrepresentation of women in stem Fields 
Number three – Academia discriminates against black people in hiring, promotion, grants, invitations, etc.
Number four – Biological sex is binary for the vast majority of people 
Number five – The social sciences in the United States discriminate against conservatives 
Number six – Racial biases are not the most important drivers of higher crime rates among black Americans relative to white Americans 
Number seven – Men and women have different psychological characteristics because of evolution 
Number eight – Genetic differences explain non-trivial 10 percent or more variances in race differences in intelligence test scores 
Number nine – Transgender identity is sometimes the product of social influence 
Number ten – Demographic diversity race and gender in the workplace often leads to worse performance

The study authors studied 470 Psychology professors and basically found that so many professors are terrified censorship at the same time they are terrified of speaking up and out on any of these topics. Which one of those topics do you want to talk publicly about. I mean there’s some stuff on the list, like the biological sex of men and women is binary for the vast majority of people, which states a scientific. But in a public High School sports team debate, a trans woman who is absolutely destroying her competition is  not going to be okay with that topic.
