    It is not inheritable spelling skills.
    It is not inheritable knowledge.
    It is not connected to race.

    GENETIC LITERACY refers to the knowledge people have about GENETICS.

    I cannot believe there are people on this board who are stupid enough to think that literacy can be inherited.

    Wait, yes I can. It makes perfect sense that the same people who think that literacy is inherited would also think that genetic literacy refers to inherited knowledge.

    And the final irony....the fact that most of the people who are reading this STILL don't get it is evidence of TRUE illiteracy, i.e., the inability to make sense of what you're reading and a lack of education and ability. It's classic.

    The exception, of course, is MM...who is so supremely stupid that not only is she embarassingly ignorant, she broadcasts her desire to remain so, and simply ignores that which doesn't jibe with her "world view".

    Also classic. Classic racism, classic ignorance, classic arrogance. The quintessential liberal.

    What is your fucking deal, Allie?
    I told you I didn't look at the link.


    You are on a liberal hatefest, all the while claiming liberals are the ones being hateful and racist.
    And someone who started a thread on something she knew nothing about, should really not talk.

    I also agreed with you, which you know from my neg rep.
    But keep putting words into people's mouths, you are good at that.

    Well Luissa, much as I like you, I wasn't talking to you specifically.

    Though if you want to think so, that's okay too.

    the ability to BECOME literate is inherited, culture influences the value of literacy, but often it is the tendency of the individual that is the deciding factor in how fluent in language they become. not everyone likes to read, smart or not, but the smart reader gets a whole lot more out of reading.
