It's no different at all; in fact it's identical. We're telling women exactly to be scared of someone based on his gender! Evolution works best in the natural world. It ain't gonna do shit for us in the unnatural world we have been creating ever since the first tribe of cavemen discovered how to cultivate plants and herd animals, taking us from the Paleolithic Era into the Neolithic. Ever since then, we have been steadily transcending nature. That often backfires, but when it succeeds, it's breathtaking. Evolution simply does not work fast enough to adapt us to every Paradigm Shift we create. Deep down inside, we're still Paleolithic hunter-gatherers who would rather sleep on the ground and shit in the woods. We mollify our Inner Caveman with pizza, TV, cold beer, motorcycles, football, air conditioning, and a domesticated wolf at his feet who thinks he's God. But every now and then he gets restless and does something utterly Paleolithic. Most of the time we're able to clean up the mess, but not always. Especially when some asshole with the gift of rhetoric convinces an entire population to let their Inner Cavemen take over, and start a war. Wow! My dad bought the first set of seat belts in Arizona out of the J.C. Whitney catalog and installed them in our 1955 Studebaker. I've been living in the Washington region since 2002 and I can assure you that 9/11 shook a lot of people down to their chanclas. (We've both lived in California so I assume you know the jargon.

Something like that just changes you, if only temporarily. Americans were ready to burn the first person they could find who had the slightest responsibility for that. Unfortunately we were under the leadership of a traitor who didn't dare let us know that 9/11 was almost completely planned, financed, managed and executed by Saudis, because the Saudi royal family are his daddy's bosom buddies in the energy industry. His daddy had already convinced us that Saddam (arguably the leader of the only major secular, pro-Western government in the Middle East--not to mention the ally we supported with money and guns during his war with Iran) was a monster. So even though he knew that the U.N. inspectors had already discovered that he had no WMDs, we didn't know that, so he told us we had to take him out. If he'd told the truth and threatened to bomb Riyadh and Mecca instead of Baghdad and Kabul, King Abdullah (does anybody really think that he didn't know where his own renegade brother-in-law was at every moment?) would have had Osama's head delivered to the White House service entrance in a FedEx truck within 36 hours, and this would have all been over. And nobody would be blaming Obama for the $3 trillion increase in the deficit that Backward Baby Bush created by simply borrowing the money for the war from China. If only somebody had the balls to prosecute the Bush family for their crimes!
