      Culture artificially stunts natural selection with things like medicine, laws, socialism, breast implants, political correctness and the like. For humans, it's not a function of being responsive to change; rather it's a function of being an active force that changes--acting as first causes rather than respondents.  Animals just react; humans have the capacity to be proactive and to defy nature with culture to some extent.
