Yep. There actually are people and means by which how our evolution has effected our psychology could be studied scientifically. What we see though is girls like pink because women collected berries and a bunch of rationalisations for the belief black people just aren't as intellectually capable as white people. Why should that be funded? It doesnt have a scientific basis. It's just explanations white guys think of while sitting on the toilet. By all means, people can believe it but it's just that - belief.

But what if we actually find some particular mechanism in the brain, traceable in development of the brain, that makes it statistically more likely for a female of the species to prefer pink? What then?
