Apparently, evolutionary biology is a dangerous field for men’s brains — it totally warps them in ugly ways. In the ongoing saga of the decadence of Jeffrey Epstein, we have another testimonial. Epstein is the filthy rich fellow who allegedly buys and sells underage girls for his sex parties, and then buys a veneer of respectability by supporting eager, money-starved scientists and influential politicians. He is not a nice man. The latest story of Epstein’s corruption includes statements from another beneficiary of his tainted largesse.
"Did he get an easy deal? Did he buy himself a light sentence? Well, yes, probably, compared to what you or I would get, but he did get locked up," Trivers said. He said he got about $40,000 from Epstein to study the relationship between knee symmetry and sprinting ability.
Trivers also said he believes girls mature earlier than in the past. "By the time they’re 14 or 15, they’re like grown women were 60 years ago, so I don’t see these acts as so heinous," he said.
That’s Robert “Reciprocal Altruism” Trivers. He’s one of the very biggest names in evolutionary theory…and there he is, stating that he is just fine with rich people buying justice, and basically endorsing the sex trafficking of 14 year old girls because “they’re like grown women were 60 years ago”. And as we all know, it’s just fine to buy grown women.
I am so disappointed. I would have thought buying a man with Trivers’ reputation would have cost far more than a measly $40K. Gosh, that suggests that mere women and 14 year olds ought to be really cheap.
