I have been part of a discussion elsewhere on the role of biology in causing men's violence, and more broadly on biological essentialism in general. I have noticed that some radical feminist bloggers seem to be expressing a more or less grudging acceptance of the role of biology in determining men's behaviour, especially when it comes to why they are so incredibly violent.
Word. Biological determinism has usually been a current in radical feminism, historically, but what makes it disturbing is that it is increasingly becoming *the* party line, and radical feminists with different analyses are being declared liberals and dick pleasers. Catherine does a great analysis on the science and what it actually says, and how limited it is. Within the p, considering boys are also gendered, we cannot observe anyone in nature, sans socialization, for example.
