Is Your Beach Body a Harmful, Triggering or Otherwise Dangerous Symbol of Oppression Toward Women of Various Sizes in the U.K. and the U.S.?
this post is very late, but, it was in my drafts, so here you go
Asking the question ‘is your beach body ready?’, is just like asking the question, ‘are you ready to show off your hard work?’. However, some have viewed this ad as being an attack on the malleable, vulnerable mind. Minds that can’t tell the difference between an ad, and real life; minds that can’t tell the difference between beauty standards for mainstream advertising and beauty standards for actual cultures and societies. I’ve got a question for you: who the hell and where the hell are these programmable humans?
Mere-Exposure Effect Fallacy
I have written about the fact that people actually do know what they think and why they think it, and they do not hold contradictory beliefs about any given subject. Go figure! This only seems counter-intuitive because the average person is terrible at articulating what it is they believe and why. Others, many of whom would like to think of themselves as the intelligentsia, are terrible at the Socratic method.
Third Wave Feminism is largely about telling people what to think, because the feminist actually thinks he/she has the power to do so
The Single Perspective
In terms of peoples’ world views, how people learn and how they change their minds, I have called my model on the neural physiological nature of our world views as the Single Perspective Hypothesis, namely, you hold one single cosmic perspective as opposed to two or more conflicting cosmic perspectives or understandings of nature.
Try speaking for yourself more often, and try ignoring the ads you don’t like. Some of us go to the beach for the beach itself, some of us go to the beach to show off, some for other things. If you’re the former, you should ignore this ad. Violent video games don’t make murderers, and ads aren’t to blame for bulimia.
Third Wave Feminism is largely about telling people what to think, because the feminist actually thinks he/she has the power to do so. Also because they believe the patriarchy has had, and does have the power to control the public mind. As I’ve said in the last post, and we can reasonably induce, that they’re thinking, ‘How could anyone possibly disagree with me?! The only way it’s possible is if their minds have been warped by propaganda!’ This would explain why most feminists aren’t as interested in debating as they are with trying to control the media, shutting down free speech, banning things, blocking people they disagree with and otherwise attempting to control the narrative. Because they don’t need to question whether they’re right or wrong, to empirically verify all their arguments, to stop calling everything and everyone ‘sexist’, they just know they’re right, and now it’s time to destroy the opposition. That’s why they fight dirty.
If you’re not interested in or trying to understand the positions or perspectives of those you disagree with, then you’re no skeptic.
