Personal Epistimes

Most people live in a world very different world from myself in a way that is related to my autism but is not a first-degree symptom of it. That is recognizing my own cognitive biases and counteracting them. The way I ultimately managed to mask required that I be cognizant of my cognitive biases soContinue reading “Personal Epistimes”

Giving Toxic Relationships Happy Endings

It used to be a cliché that bad boys were faustian bargains and ultimately girls would be hurt by them. In the last few decades, they did a Taylor Swift and rewrote the ending so that Edward Cullen and Christian Grey, bad boys with so many red flags they may as well have been Soviet,Continue reading “Giving Toxic Relationships Happy Endings”

The Perennial and the Pundits of Christianity

What does Jesus think about abortion? The answer is like what most religion and secular ideology is, whatever you already believe, your tradition is on your side. To escape this, there must be a philosohical framework with which to answer. My answer is Jesus is not a pundit and Christianity is not a platform ofContinue reading “The Perennial and the Pundits of Christianity”

Capitalism & Suicide: The Modern Examples of Weber and Durkheim

For parents, especially contemporary culturally suburban ones since the 1990s, the aim has been to have successy children who excel. I never had this ambition and always saw it as wrong. A good woman is not a CEO because a good person is not a CEO but an underground activist resisting the CEO. I sayContinue reading “Capitalism & Suicide: The Modern Examples of Weber and Durkheim”

The Psychology of Reactionary Politics

Reactionary politics is considered by many to be a synonym with conservatism but it is not. I define it as the politcs of unthinking reaction. I recently wrote an article about the anti-catcalling laws. How, among other things, the same movement against mass incarceration and arresting people for minor crimes are also for doing exactlyContinue reading “The Psychology of Reactionary Politics”

The Spectrum Between Romance and Platonic Realtionships

As a heteroromantic asexual, I view it as inappasite to classify the type of relationship I would want to be the same as a hetererosexual. Fundamentally, a heterosexual wants different things. Also, as someone with a disability, I have different needs. For example, for someone with a lower-functioning disability, combining maternalism and romance may beContinue reading “The Spectrum Between Romance and Platonic Realtionships”

The Never-Ending War: Will Gender Dynamics Ever Harmonize?

Will the questions around third-wave feminism regarding creepiness ever be resolved? If these traits are inherrent to a large portion of men then is there an end to the #metoo movement? Are there social changes that would satisfy it so that it would disband? Well, no. This is not to say there are no socialContinue reading “The Never-Ending War: Will Gender Dynamics Ever Harmonize?”

Safety Versus Eudemonia in Third-Wave Feminism

Third-wave feminism is plagued by the Marxist belief in the false consciousness. That is that the proletariat would agree with the socialist intellectuals if only the elites had not brainwashed them. Therefore, it is the charge of the “vangaurd”, the socialist elites to unveil that brainwashing. The idea of the false consciousness has sometimes hadContinue reading “Safety Versus Eudemonia in Third-Wave Feminism”

The Price of Universal Deceit

It would be impossible to live by Kant’s strict code of honesty. Lying, according to him, sets a precedent that everyone would potentially follow and if everybody lied then no one could trust each other. To say nothing about the lack of psychological science backing that up, it would lead to mass metaphorical crucifixions. Likely,Continue reading “The Price of Universal Deceit”

The World According to True Crime

A while back, I believe 2015, I was at a town council meeting and the town council was voting on whether to approve the construction of a new playground. In what should have been a resounding approval, a NIMBY rose her voice. Now, her reasons for not wanting the playground likely had to do withContinue reading “The World According to True Crime”
