Roderick Kaine – Smart and SeXy: Biological Differences Between Men and Women

Roderick Kaine is an American who has a degree in biochemistry, and he has done professional research in both Biology and Neuroscience. After moving on from this work, he has focused on writing and independent scholarship. Around 2010, Roderick began his work on his book, Smart and SeXy, which describes the biologically based cognitive differences between the sexes by using the latest research in neuroscience and genetics. Smart and SeXy was published in 2016. He has been active in the neoreactionary movement since 2014, where he writes under the name Atavisionary.

Roderick joins us for an eye-opening conversation on the biological differences between men and women. After a lighthearted rumination on International Women’s Day, we dive into the main topic of the show. Roderick explains that most scientists are aware of racial and sexual differences, but choose to keep quiet for the sake of their careers. Next, we discuss anthropologist Melvin Konner’s assertion that maleness is a defect – an absurd claim, to be sure, which Roderick easily refutes. We then discuss the discrimination hypothesis. Roderick argues that it is biological differences, not discrimination, that results in different outcomes for men and women. The first hour covers much more, including male-female differences in intelligence, transgenderism, and homosexuality.

In the members’ hour, we shift gears to consider the big picture. We consider how Western civilization lost its patriarchal vigor, as globalism and Leftism appear to be guiding us towards a more matriarchal culture. Roderick argues that the root of the problem lies in academia, which has become a Leftist echo chamber. We then ponder why men allowed feminism and the dissolution of traditional gender roles in the first place. While on the subject of gender roles, Roderick argues that both men and women must be forgiving to in order to return to more harmonious, traditional gender relations. Later, we discuss how fertility rates differ by political orientation, and what implications this holds for the future. The members’ hour also explores masculinity, legal factors in sexual relations, and the possibility of a peaceful solution to the West’s current crisis.

    How about women fighting alongside men in many so-called pagan societies? Then women as leaders, often quite capable, and also, don’t forget women interested in science, like Hypatia of Alexandria for instance, before idiotic Christians killed her. The real myth here is “traditional gender relations”, and modern feminism is a pendulum swung too far in order to balance it, nothing more. Simply adopt pre-Christian view of how men and women are part of Nature, both to be respected, and all of these debates are not needed anymore.

    These various strengths and weakness of the sexes I think if anything serve as further examples of the natural dimorphism of our species. I don’t know i can be so sure its simply that women don’t have equivalent mental faculties available to men, it could be an effect of women’s naturally greater capacity for empathy and their tendency towards emotion versus men’s own tendency to emotionally disconnect. This among the many other factors both known and unknown in any given case can lead to women being more likely in general to fall into the trap of letting their emotions get the better of them, regardless of the situational particulars. I don’t however see that as enough evidence to say women lack equivalent mental capacity, rather their emotional capacity might conflict with their own desires to discover their mental capacity more so than men. And of course theres the tricky game of trying to sort out how much biology influencing society influeneces our view of how much biology influences society. Do women choose teaching and nursing and veteranary school because its just easier than the other similar feilds or do women genuinely prefer what those jobs offer like men prefer what is offered by the jobs whose fields they dominate? I think it all goes back to our dimorphism.
