Re: Alternatives to Jordan Peterson

I'm saturated with straight white men asking me so politely and rationally to explain that sexism and racism exists, or that so and so is really saying anything unreasonable. Maybe I reached that saturation point in the 3.5 years you've been away. Or maybe you've missed the many conversations about...

Re: Alternatives to Jordan Peterson

Hmmm... If I concede that the question I asked was improperly framed, and that you may fairly have felt I was attacking you out of nowhere, or defending Jordan Peterson apropos of nothing then I can certainly understand why you have reacted this way. As I asked the question in good faith, I will pre...

Re: Social justice and psychotherapy

Good to see you old timer. It's been too long. It has indeed, but I do sleep a lot longer than I used to these days. Not sure how that aphorism or position was initially designed, but I am not sure if I agree that one needs to hold onto ones pain in order to do anything. Holding on to the pain, or ...

Re: Alternatives to Jordan Peterson

I should also add that plenty of (to my eye) overtly fascist figureheads have been lifted too, from Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, Steve Bannon, Milo Yiannopoulos and Nigel Farage to Donald Trump himself. However, like Christina Hoff Summers, Peterson's academic credentials and ability to skirt the extreme...

Re: Social justice and psychotherapy

Why do I suddenly feel like John Sims character in Life on Mars? (checks posting history) Oh yeah... it has been a while. The other part is the interpretation of 'social justice', which is equally as varied as 'liberalism', and I am not going to answer on the behalf of Lancaster how they define it. ...

Re: Should I get a parrot?

What is the appropriate age to come to the realisation that sociology was never a proper subject, stop moaning about things that don't and have never actually existed and get a degree in something useful instead?

Re: Should the DCP really be stipulating the language we use

I suspect it's more of a context thing. No CP would ever address someone as an expert by experience, in a clinical setting etc. It's a term used in situations like this, where service users have contributed to documents. I have to say I'm not overly fond of it myself, but the service user's i've co...

Re: Should the DCP really be stipulating the language we use

Referring to someone as an 'expert by experience' is better than referring to someone as a patient? That sounds a bit like newspeak to me (and the document on the whole reads like it too). Sorry guys, if one of you swapped the latter for the former when addressing me I'd have difficulty in taking yo...

Re: What colour is this dress (brains are amazing)

That is odd. I used to have a thing when I was tired/stressed my depth perception would fail - or rather my brain would fail to project the image into space; it did project it but only about 2 inches in front of my eyes, like a flat image. It only ever lasted about 15 mins though. Vision researcher...

Re: What colour is this dress (brains are amazing)

I have, only seen this dress as being Blue and Black, whatever I did, wherever I saw it, be it on the internet in a lit room, or in a newspaper on a less than optimally lit tube; only ever seen blue and black and I haven't got what all the fuss is about truth be told. I'm currently under an enormous...

Re: Psychology

Perhaps you can seek out your careers adviser at school? If there is no careers advice that's available, surely the person teaching you psychology could also be asked for help?
