@GwenfarsGarden Mindhunters, starting over on season 1 apparently

Gonna go rest with some Netflix and snacks?

@hadleybeeman Combine this with homosociality, and it also illuminates why as a man some do not witness or perceive the same amount of such events as women report. They are more frequently out of the targeted vectors of gendered harassment, in addition to being around men more often than women. There is probably a better way of expressing this as a more general principle that doesn't just apply for gender but am lazy.

If 20% of a group are harassers (evenly across genders), & the group has more men than women… then each woman gets 16x more bad experiences than each man.

The Petrie Multiplier: in a group where x% are bullies/harassers, the minority will feel it (x/100)^2 more.

This blog post has stuck with me through the years. I like the maths in it, & I like the conclusion that attacking sexism/racism etc doesn't have to be an attack on the majority.

weird metaphor: racism kinda like having a strong accent taught 2 and learned by wP. but the societal wP accent is v dangerous and oppressive so if u hear PoC "that's not ok + the cruel dialect/zone that you were taught by society is slipping through and it is hurting the people who arent as privileged" it's not always about YOU its often what yr doing bcus of the racist world. it needs to be self monitored ✨AND OWNED UP 2 AT EVERY TURN✨ relying on prejudice is ingrained in wP we must fight it ♾

A pox on the house of whoever invented “omg you haven’t used social app in awhile, you’ll never guess what that person you may have accidentally interacted with once has been blathering on about, COME BACK COME BACK PLEASE PLEASE” notifications

I've got a poll idea, similar to the style of @ben 's "get the percentage to match the labels" poll. This is gonna be the same sorta thing - get the percentages to match the labels! Although, it should be way easier, at least, given everyone's trying to work together... you're all wanting to accomplish the same goal, right?
