Today, the right is unquestionably more masculine. What happened? ... The remainder of this post reviews nine separate publications, covering several different methodologies, which all triangulate on the same conclusion: the right is more masculine than the left.
There is also an IQ gap.

American Journal of Psychology:

The past 30 years of research in intelligence has produced a wealth of knowledge about the causes and consequences of differences in intelligence between individuals, and today mainstream opinion is that individual differences in intelligence are caused by both genetic and environmental influences. ...

In this article I discuss 5 lines of research that provide evidence that mean differences in intelligence between racial and ethnic groups are partially genetic.

This should not be surprising. Intelligence evolved because it is heritable and useful. Group differences are expected.

This has little consequence, if you treat people as individuals.

If you are committed to Diversity, Inclusion, Equity, then it is crucial. It means that racial differences cannot be attributed to racism or socioeconomic background. They are genetic. In part, at least.

The Left keeps saying that we need a racial reckoning. Okay, figure out the genes for intelligence differences. If you are not doing that, then you are not even getting started.
