    Democrats are the Party of Science?

    Liberal Democrats try to portray themselves as supporters of science, and claim that "the science is settled" on this issue or that subject, labeling their opponents as "deniers". But are they really the party of science? Not so much. On social issues, liberals drag science to the closet, keeping it locked and chained to prevent interference with their agenda.

    For starters:

    To the liberal, gender is regarded as a personal choice that everyone else must accept, despite settled science to the contrary. "Transgender" is a fiction belied by science reality, and liberals are gender science deniers.

    To the liberal, women are fully equal to men in every regard (except in areas where they are claimed to be better). New technologies have generated a growing pile of evidence that there are inherent differences in how men’s and women’s brains are wired and how they work. https://stanmed.stanford.edu/2017spr...different.html

    To the liberal, ethnic diversity is something to be celebrated, mandated and enforced by government. This despite scientific studies showing that people are are less happy in diverse cultural settings, and would rather self-segregate to be around people with similar backgrounds. Self-segregation happens in college selection (historically black schools attract black students who want that experience, while other students attend elsewhere), housing, church attendance, and many other voluntary activities. Diversity mostly only happens where it is required by the government, such as places of employment and the military. Self-segregation is a personal choice that makes people happier. Liberals are science deniers on this issue.

    So let's see the actual science that says otherwise. Disagreeing with your opinion is not the same as disagreeing with the science.

    Strawman. It's not a liberal's position that men and women are exactly the same in every way. The "equal" argument tends to be in regards to worth and deserving of equal treatment.

    So let's the see scientific study that backs up this argument.


    And of course the "party of science" argument is generally in regards to things like evolution and global warming. I assume there's not much controversy regarding the statement that the liberal view is generally more accurate when it comes to those issues.
