This distinction is one that de Waal has run into from philosophers who say that any of his observations of empathy or morality in animals can’t possibly tell him about whether or not they have norms. De Waal disagrees, pointing out that animals do recognise norms:
The simplest example is a spider web or nest. If you disturb it, the animal’s goi…
Hopefully one day rape will be taken more seriously by all and women’s testimony will be taken more seriously. Hope that day comes soon.
If they make these often trivial claims (e.g. brushed a hand on my ass) twenty plus years after the fact when it often seems to be politically timed; they are diminishing the weight of real claims. I don’t be…[Read more]
I heard on some show one of the characters say that “Easter was originally a celebration of a woman’s most fertile time of the year”. I guess cause all the animals do it in spring the pagans in the crowd co-opted it.

We’re still being exploited today. The rebuilding of the World Trade Center Tower recently didn’t get done without support from our tax dollars.

Tyson is accused of creepy behaviour which caused one woman to quit the TV show she was working on. It doesn’t sound that serious, however, it made one woman quit her job. He didn’t apologise.
Dr. Tyson described the first two instances as harmless gestures. He denied the allegation of rape.
Krauss is accused of grabbing a woman’s breast. I ca…[Read more]
Not another bloody outrage over false accusations of rape. Jesus fucking christ.
What is bullshit is obsessing about this problem solely through the lens of women accusing rape. There is a bias screaming out in most of these complaints and it focuses on three things. 1 Rape is a different kind of crime than other crimes. 2. Women often claims…[Read more]
