Friday Quote

"By Darwinian standards I am a horrible mistake, a pathetic loser, not one iota less than if I were a card-carrying member of Queer Nation. But I am happy to be that way, and if my genes don't like it, they can go jump in the lake."

If someone voluntarily decides not to have their own children, Society will not beleive. Such is the mentality of the society. Probably some cognitive bias.

Forget the society

Pinker is a great thinker, and the quote was fantastic.
