Reconnect The Dots

April 30, 2022

There’s more than one way to see the world and more than one tool to dissect history.

Yes. Men are disproportionately in positions of power.

But that doesn’t mean they were put there by some invisible guiding hand of #patriarchy.

Yes. The average American man is paid more than the average American women.

But that doesn’t mean these women are being discriminated against on the basis of their gender.

Agreed. Men can do some truly awful things, including to women.

But that doesn’t mean they did it *because* they were men.

These points are up for debate.

And we shouldn’t be confined to such restrictive and often absurd perspectives on the world, or cancelled for demanding better ones.

For we live in a society of science, of psychology, anthropology, neuroscience and economics – yet so many in these fields are cowed into subordination, afraid to speak on controversial matters, or scared to present scientific data that betrays ideological dogma.

So how do you connect the dots?

How did we get here?
