Saturday marks the beginning of NaNoWriMo, and it seems like a lot of ideas are in progress and about to be bravely crafted and thrust out into the world (whether your world means the secret between you and your laptop, a self published ebook or crowdsourcing ideas through Archive of Our Own).

My food groups are cheese, bacon, and hot tea. I like studying cities and playing with my cat, Buffy.

20-something internet fiend. My scrolling finger gets regular exercise. When I'm not building a small army that can kick you in the shins while simultaneously learning their abc's, I'm perusing the internet to fuel my fangirl life. I dream of one day becoming Lucille Bluth.

It’s been several weeks since the tragic murder of Michael Brown and in light of those events, it’s important to acknowledge how intersectionality of identities complicate the dominant news discourse and that yes, we should still be angry about the miscarriage of justice in Ferguson.

The Science of Race: Is it Genetic or a Social Construct?

[E] Hillary

Hillary is a giant nerd and former Mathlete. She once read large swaths of "Why Evolution is True" and a geology book aloud to her infant daughter, in the hopes of a) instilling a love of science in her from a very young age and b) boring her to sleep. After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.

[Original publication date: Nov. 16, 2011] In response to my Ask a Nerd post, Lucia asked: I have a science question that is very unpopular.  I do not mean to be offensive, I really do want a good scientific answer to understand these ideas.  So, here goes”: Is there a genetic basis for racial differences?
