But somehow, some think that means “all are literally identical” which it of course doesn’t.
It is an ethical claim.
People vary by individual, sex and population. And they all have equal inherent dignity.
Another misunderstanding related to this, is the belief – or myth – that everybody can succeed intellectually if they put in the hard work. No, just as everybody can’t succeed in professional sports etc.
And it is harmful to all to perpetuate this myth; especially to those that can’t succeed.
