I think it's important to distinguish between male/female (physical sex) and masculine/feminine (gender roles, presentation, and expression). I.e. a female mechanic is no less female and no less a woman, due to her masculine career choice! This! I hate it when some guys say "a man with vagina&...

With this answer, bear in mind that I'm probably not autistic. I have dyspraxia with a lot of autistic traits (obsessions, social problems, repetitive/stimming behaviour, and mild sensory issues). I'm high-functioning enough that I can hold down a job and a relationship for years on end. My conditio...

I seem to alternate between living life reluctantly and ardently. I don't know which of those approaches is superior. Many people would say the latter is superior, but in practice, that lifestyle often presents more problems than it seems to be worth. The main reason to choose the former is that it ...

By 'superior', I suppose you mean in a moral sense? Most animals don't have the faculties to do something wrong, knowing that it is wrong, and still do it anyway. If they had that capacity, they would be morally superior to humans, but it isn't logically consistent to talk of moral superiority in a ...

I have it. I'm not sure if I actually have autism, really. I've been diagnosed with dyspraxia, but not autism. The two conditions have a lot of overlap because the personality traits that often go with dyspraxia can be quite similar to what used to be called Asperger's Syndrome. A fun thing to do if...

Well, keep thinking and listening. Just because few people are doing it, doesn't mean it isn't worthwhile. There's satisfaction to be found in trying to uncover the truth of any matter. I can't think what we're here for, otherwise. I get that in Scandinavia, the conformity expected on matters of opi...

You can say positive things about men; only those who don't want to debate will say otherwise. It's not worth debating with those who don't really want to debate, of any political stripe.

I bolded the ones I use. I'm starting to think there's a lot in Freudian psychoanalysis that is useful, even though like you said, it's unfalsifiable. Freudian psychoanalysis is mostly unfalsifiable and therefore falls outside contemporary psychology, but some of the ego defense mechanisms do have r...

I think it's also genuine guilt, as well as virtue signalling. I've been thinking a lot about guilt lately and the appropriate way to engage with it. For example, I'm British and white. What's the appropriate way to deal with the guilt of imperialism? I've long been wary of the self-flagellating way...

INTP Ah a kindred logician Yes, I prefer to think about emotions rather than with them. I'm a very passionate, emotional person, actually. I'm also very empathetic, but I sometimes say things is a very blunt and offensive way that upsets people. I also go on rants when I'm upset. I feel guilty abou...

Thanks for sharing those videos. I've been out of the loop because, like most of the non-SJW left, I've not been taking the alt-right seriously enough. It's a bit sad that there's such a vacuum on the left that issues around Islamism (and other types of religious fundamentalism) free speech and the ...

I've noticed that a lot of the newer 'coming out conservative' sorts seem like they're half serious half trolling, and I can't tell if it's because they saw it work for Milo or if it's just part of the Kekistani state of mind. Also as far as being combative - it doesn't seem like Laura Ingraham or ...

This one (well, former) doesn't. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KBzawNam14 What a strange woman, and what a strange ideas she has about feminism and the left/right in politics. She seems very interested in baiting left-wing women, almost flirtatiously. I know a high femme tease when I see one. :w...

] Judith Butler and Queer Theory for now hold the field and have reinterpreted 'gender'. Megan Murphy argued against this reinterpretation, as have Jordan Peterson, but the Canadian gender identity bill C16 is well on its way to become law. The idea of a dimorphic human species is well on its way t...
