I really just wanted to make 3 comments on it:
1) The blog post really goes where I never ever expected it to go, which is why I had to share it.
2) The author uses my first name. It appears only women are prone to this infantilizing treatment. Yay.
3) It would have been really cool to have made this one research paper part of a longer story explaining epigenetics. I think a good percentage of newspaper readers (sadly not 100…) get genetics, and epigenetics would blow many of their socks off. If they are above a certain age (not very old!) they certainly wouldn’t have learned it in high school and perhaps not even in college.
