I feel like a robot controlled by my biology when I read about the ways women's brains are different from men's, and how that indicates that it's because men were out being hunter-gatherers, and how women act this way because it'll help them raise kids, blah blah. I don't want to hear that love is just a chemical meant to bring together a couple long enough to raise a kid together, or that sex is just our genes tricking us with immense pleasure into passing them on. Love, eating, sex - each of these things are worthwhile in themselves.

I need to read less speculative science because it doesn't make me happy, and most of it can only come to a limited, useless conclusion anyway.
