The question of a downside was interesting to me, because if something is beneficial in all circumstances you would expect natural selection to make it a "fixed" trait, rather than one that varies a lot between people
. Intelligence is costly because brains use up a lot of energy (and large heads make for more difficult births). There's also this
, though that might be more reflective of modern circumstances than the broader sweep of human history.
Cincinnatus, I've said similar things about some female diavloggers without getting censored. My guess about the difference is that I did so in a wordier manner that sounded classier than "X is hot". Or maybe Komment Kontrol was feeling censory the day you happened to post.
