Pointing And Laughing Isn't Emo

Another day, another internet tempest in a tea pot.
I’m so used to liberals telling conservatives that they’re anti-science. But liberals who defend this and say it is not a bad thing are very anti-science. When you look at biology, when you look at the natural world, the roles of a male and a female in society and in other animals, the male typically is the dominant role. The female, it’s not antithesis, or it’s not competing, it’s a complementary role.
It's hysterical that Erickson appeals to science to defend an idea that is increasingly understood as anthropomorphism.  From a scientific standpoint, how is it possible to generalize about gender roles from non-human species?

But, of course, ignorance of science hasn't stopped the American right before, so why stop now?
In a blog post on, Editor-in-Chief Erick Erickson replied to criticism of his Fox Business appearance Wednesday evening, in which he railed against the uptick of "breadwinning" mothers he says is "tearing us apart."
"Many feminist and emo lefties have their panties in a wad over my statements in the past 24 hours about families," Erickson wrote on Thursday. 
On Fox, Erickson expressed his dismay about a recent Pew study the found mothers to be the breadwinners in 40% of American households with children, explaining that a cursory glance at the animal world reveals that males are the dominant gender, and liberals who fail to see this are "very anti-science." . . .
A couple thoughts.  When you're in a hole, stop digging.  It's fantastic to watch someone demonstrate unrelated ignorances of both science and pop vocabulary.
