“I read the whole “overdramatic illness” thing is actually an evolutionary trait from way back when. If the (cave)men were expected to hunt animals and they got sick they could A) Tough it out and possibly get killed by these animals (boars, mammoths, deer, etc.) or B) Rest and recover so as not to get killed by these animals. The genetic trait for resting and recovering was passed on because those guys survived.
Women, on the other hand, never had the need to rest and recover because the risks were lower in the cave, so the ones who powered through were able to raise better-suited offspring than the ones that would succumb to the illnesses. Those better-suited offspring inherited and passed on the “females-tough-it-out” gene because they could acquire more mates than those whose mothers weren’t toughing it out.
But who knows?”
Safety shouldn’t be earned, safety is ubiquitously deserved. But primarily advocating for and focusing on self-protective measures is really saying “make sure he rapes teh other girl” (from shondaland article)
The picture of the man holding the woman holding the baby from the flood with the caption about the way “this is how things should be” I’d be interested to do a qualitative design survey and see if people talk more about it’s a romantic idea or “should” be… code for “should” vs “nice” vs “secure” vs “olden times”
Maybe a before/after exposure to the idea that this is one way a family could vibe or feel positive or secure or attraction or romantic or love… or some people read that interpretation and others read the “should be” or “defense of traditional gender roles” perspective, and rate their attitudes or endorsements or emotions afterwards
Different ways to think about regression
- Describing the relationship between two variables (describing bivariate data)
- correlation (assesses the linear relationship between two variables)
- Two Parts.
- measures the association between two variables
- Literally, the variance across two variables
- Testing if a correlation is significantly different than zero
- Finding the line of best fit from a noisy data scatterplot
You regress DV on IV
The slope of the equation is the association between the two variables
Street harassment is a product of objectification, feeling disempowered but entitled to power, UGH. Read the comments, esp the screenshotted one

I want to expand and deepen white privilege
I want a white society, a European EMPIRE
Power is GOOD
Racial differences cannot fundamentally be breached, ever
God made us all the same? That’s bullshit
Equality? That’s nonsense, there’s no equality in nature… there is DIFFERENCE
Charles Barkley says “we want the same things out of life” Spencer goes “you sure about that?”
Barkley says if you get your dreams, you kill our dreams. And I’m sure Spencer sees that as “nature” “survival of the fittest” “competition, mannn” *more co-opting of evolutionary rhetoric as justification

On a post in the psych methods fb group about a critique of Amy Cuddy’s power pose:
There have been other published critiques along similar lines, for example: http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/science/2016/11/power_posing_s_real_problem_is_with_hormones_not_data.html. And there was also a critique published early on in an endocrinology journal.
The slate article tagline is that the issue is thinking testosterone is the way to power.
Do we know for sure what testosterone is linked to? Is the only definite thing sex drive? If so, that seems like an important part of the sex as conquest narrative… something about the most base-line thing a man conquers is a woman in sex, somehow that is the seed that spurs all the societal level conquering/dominating/colonizing? Idk… Testosterone Rex will be so helpful for this part though
