“It’s been almost two years since we learned about CRISPR, a ninja-assassin-meets-DNA-editing-tool that has been billed as one of the most powerful, and potentially controversial, technologies ever discovered by scientists. In this episode, we catch up on what’s been happening (it’s a lot), and learn about CRISPR’s potential to not only change human evolution, but every organism on the entire planet.

01) Bill Maher interviews Camille Paglia on Politically Incorrect


In this interview, we get a rare treat…

…Camille drops “the BL word”…in a positive way.

Camille at least used to have a positive opinion on pederasty…that’s “man with teen” hebephilia.

I’m not aware of her ever expressing anything supportive towards pedophilia, though.
