Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Figuring out how to live my own life, rather than just, you know,
get married, pop out kids, etc. It kind of amazes me how almost
nobody ever really questions the life society tells us to live.
Nearly all my friends from college are married and having kids
already. I mean, that's fine if that's what you want for yourself,
but I worry that some of them never really contemplated it, just
assumed that's what you do.
Gender, feminism, to what extent people are unaware of their own
biases. My facebook newsfeed is awash in arguments where people
regurgitate talking points as if it's their original idea. I think
when most people are confronted with whatever new issue of the day
the media is obsessed about, the average person thinks about it for
a second and a half and picks a side based on their "gut." Then
they just grasp at somebody's talking points and then act like
they've made a real informed decision and want to make sure
everyone hears their side of it. Seriously, most people act like
they are politicians, they want to make a gut call, then never
change their mind, otherwise they'd be flipfloppers. It's all part
of our anti-intellectual society that looks down on statistics and
research and throws praise on fortune-cookie sound bites. /end rant
