I will provide citation but its breakfast time now
Juan, is there any specific curriculum that's unscientific? Is it the overall theme, gender equality? What is it? Are there at least some anecdotal evidence? For starting a thread, you don't seem to pay all that much attention.

Re: Gender studies

Do they teach you to use gender pronouns like in NoQuarter's post? Or how to conduct yourself in social situations? What the hell is gender studies all about? It's more than a bit vague to me.

I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. Perhaps everyone should just claim victory by not taking a position. Yay everyone!

Why can't gender studies be parapsychology? This question makes no sense to me.

I don't know if gender studies is "scientific" or not. I suspect that juan is wrong, just based on his usually state of wrongness.

Re: Gender studies

From wiki:

Quote:
Gender studies is a field for interdisciplinary study devoted to gender identity and gendered representation as central categories of analysis. This field includes women's studies (concerning women, feminism, gender, and politics), men's studies and queer studies.[1] Sometimes, gender studies is offered together with study of sexuality.
These disciplines study gender and sexuality in the fields of literature, language, geography, history, political science, sociology, anthropology, cinema, media studies,[2] human development, law, and medicine.[3] It also analyzes how race, ethnicity, location, class, nationality, and disability intersect with the categories of gender and sexuality.[4][5]

Re: Gender studies

Yah, lol was just looking at wiki myself. There's enough for a class as long as you get a professor who's open minded, and go in with an open minded attitude.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gender_studies

Plenty of application in fields I don't find all that fascinating, but everyone's different.

Yes, you sound like someone who doesn't know any real scientists. Gender studies is an important discipline that will help the world tremendously in the 21st century and not just for women. I know what you don't; without women's studies and gender studies the world will be a much darker place in the near future.

We have a universities that are churning out "humanitarians" that have read all of those fields and have no real education outside of the made up fields and all wants to research it from the flawed information that they have recieved during their own studies.
Does anyone believe that their results will be anything other than biased from their own perceived version of reality?

If your results lean left and confirm what you have been taught you get further grants, if not you dissapear or get called racist/sexist/etc untill you are forced out of the limelight...

sputnik have you ever presented your ideas to women people in real life? like in a public forum. Have you ever been made to disappear?

Spaceman, there's nothing especially smart, profound, or clever about acting like an oblivious tard all the time. Not really sure what effect you're going for here.

Re: Gender studies

kioshk. I think right now the biggest thing for me would be if I could have a job where I could sit down for once in my life. Ive never had a job like that. I've worked in a car wash, in a factory, in grocery stores but if I could make money writing and didn't have to work so hard that would be great.

Re: Gender studies

Most people in my family have good 6 figure paying jobs and live in big houses. But no one is hiring someone like me, no one in my family will give me money anymore. I just wish I could've been normal like the other people in my family; graduated college settled down in Virginia with a wife and kids in the suburbs. but nope. I have too many mental problems. The fact is most people like me bow out early. So im highly motivated to share my opinions on the internet.

Re: Gender studies

And of course, that happens to me all the time online or in real life. If you're one grain away from perfect psychology people misread all your intentions and distort everything you say. forever.

Re: Gender studies

On gender studies im literally the only persopn on the forum who knows as much about it but nope no one wants to know they just want to say ignorant things over and over again and not even talk to me about it because they're so ****ing special and not abnormal and they figured out the cure of knowing im not exactly totally normal so no you can't even talk about that one ****ing thing at all without some ******* ridiculing me

Re: Gender studies

Yah, I'll start my defense of beta males counter-arg in a thread, which would entirely confound the forum, juan, etc. In true survival of the fittest spirit, beta males are attractive, and get with the next gen, lol.

My theory is that it's the best way he's found to consistently get attention here on 2p2, by acting like a weirdo. So he's nourished that skill, because his regular life isn't all it could be at this point.
