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

Oh and please stop sending me messages that are explicitly sexual. I'm a sexually liberated woman, not a hole in the wall.
