What researchers discovered was surprising: Those who are described as ‘agreeable, conscientious personalities’ are more likely to follow orders and deliver electric shocks that they believe can harm innocent people, while ‘more contrarian, less agreeable personalities’ are more likely to refuse to hurt others.
The study also found that people holding left-wing political views were less willing to hurt others. One particular group held steady and refused destructive orders: ‘women who had previously participated in rebellious political activism such as strikes or occupying a factory.’”
u dont fucken say
haha hoho I am not surprised in the least that people who prioritise niceness are more likely to be morally bankrupt
In other news: sky blue, water wet. More findings to follow.
I think people generally know their own sexuality better, by living it, than their family does, just by looking at them sometimes.
Additionally bisexuals face a lot of erasure and social stigma, and people who like multiple genders are always getting pressured to ‘fess up’ to being just gay or just straight. But we’re not, no matter how long or how frequently we date one gender or another.
If your sister says she’s bisexual, she knows best here. If she feels romantic feelings predominantly for girls, she’s still bisexual. If she marries a girl, she’s still bisexual. If she never touches a dude’s dick in her whole life, she is still bisexual.
Lesbian relationships, gay relationships, straight relationships, even poly relationships, are not even remotely contrasting someone’s self identification as bisexual, because bisexuality means you like the same and other genders, or male and female genders, or male and female and other genders. Basically any possible dating activity from here on out she could be doing with other consenting adults is totally covered under ‘she said she was bisexual, so that’s what she’s being’.
Goddamn. Go apologize to your sister for going and talking to a total stranger to try and get info to use to invalidate her identity.
Chief Russell Mills to the LA Times after shooting and killing black 89-year-old great grandfather Shawn Monroe at a barbecue unprovoked. Today, he walks free with no charges, despite numerous witnesses and his own admission that he enjoys terrorizing black people.
Tell me again why Black people should be okay with police when they have, since the history of our being kidnapped to this fucking country, have not EVER been about protecting us, but about terrorizing us?
Police are NOT for Black people’s safety. They are about torturing us, terrorizing us and killing us. Period. There is no safety with police. There is no peace keeping with police. They have ALWAYS been a terror to the Black community and I am tired of this fact being pushed to the wayside.
And Ray Kelly, when he was Commissioner in NYC said the same thing.
Arpaio has said the same thing.
This is a ROUTINE assertion that the point of the police is to be an agent of state terror. And that such terror should be all but exclusively focused on Black and Brown bodies.
