    LGBTQ+ Sensitivity, Control, Identity

    because that kind of perspective/mentality is the kind that makes lgbtq probably not want to interact with you in their communities in the first place you find them interesting because they're "uncommon", and think therefore they should feel like interacting with you? what if they just don't...

    climate change "skepticism"

    Global trends in temperature increase mean that the regional things that affect climate and cause heatwaves for example, are exacerbated and more severe than they otherwise would be. Moreover, climate change is not limited only to temperature changes as a result of greenhouse emissions...

    Australian Bushfires

    unfortunately yeah it's a double edged sword the amount of area burned by the bushfires is crazy, basically an entire continent caught fire (and more still.to come in the coming months probably. not out of threat until later in March usually) and heavy downpour is set to pose another public...

    serac takes issue with climate activism

    the only reason you'd think greta's climate change activism makes her a demagogue would be that political decision-making is currently out of touch with ecological science on climate change and its effects. If calling for action based on science rather than corporate interest makes someone a...

    Meditation links and practices

    Well Sam Harris is a neuroscientist so this is an area he's actually qualified in. He's pretty good at talking about mental states and ways to control them and avoid common pitfalls etc. Haven't done the 50 days thing myself but I'd shill for Sam Harris in at least this area too tbh

    serac takes issue with climate activism

    i mean climate change projections pretty comfortable estimate that the number of climate refugees will be will into 7 figures by 2050 if glacial melting continues at the rate it is now. not sure why you're so bitter about a teenage activist who happens to care about this in a thread about a...

    many barriers to solutions are artificially imposed political barriers and bureaucracy though there are a number of robust economic concepts that show positive benefits across the board that are stonewalled to protect the interests of corporate lobbyists and their political ties it's not that...

    Careers an INTP would enjoy

    @SlothfulGinger there's a lot of nurse-adjacent jobs you can get with a nursing qualification iirc not necessarily locked into a hospital gig. but yeah it's a pretty secure starting point for a career i guess.

    Revolutions

    Ideally through a representative candidate you'd be able to effectively impact legislative matters as a unified voice. Unionisation and public pressure would ideally protect against abuses and help to usher in paradigm shifts in legislative decision making. This worked for a while, when the...

    how women judge you (opposite sex)

    there's actually quite a lot of women on this forum they tend to avoid these topics when as you say, people talk about them irrationally as if they operate on entirely inhuman concepts of logic. when people point out they don't they typically get backlash for it it's not the only topic it...

    Female Dominance?

    i don't think many relationships (platonic or romantic) follow a true dominant/submissive divide. few people are so linear and simplistic as to fall squarely into one category, though sure, those people do exist. @Inexorable Username if you're interested in reading about social dynamics pick up...

    Female Dominance?

    there's so many different contexts where power dynamics apply that it doesn't seem pertinent to apply a uniform label or to try and figure out 'dominance' based on hormones i think there's a lot of nuances in the power struggles of human interaction where people's general preferences can be...

    Racism is innate

    Not really talking about sociological theory though. Talking plainly about the reported reasons for rape by perpetrators and how we assess what particular behaviours they engage in mean. From a reductionist point of view you could say that a lack of ability to fulfil a biological sex drive...

    Racism is innate

    To be clear: no one is denying that there is a biological basis for emotions and motives. This is a phantom that you are working yourself up to argue against. What's being contested is the idea that it can be chalked up to 'horny'. All studies on behaviour of perpetrators of rape (that I've...

    Racism is innate

    That's because it really is blaming the victim. There's quite a few levels of violence between inappropriate remarks or an isolated event of inappropriate contact without physical harm and actual rape. In certain contexts I might not condone but also not necessarily condemn the former as being...

    INTP Memes

    On one hand I think it's important to differentiate between institutionalized belief and individual belief.

    dark energy probably doesn't exist and universe might not be expanding at accelerating rate

    i've been skeptical of the concept of dark energy for quite a while i've read through the paper but i'm still thinking about it. i think it's not really an embarrassment so much. it's still an important step in the discovery process to see that the universe is expanding from our frame of...
