Rasism har funnits i drygt 500 år, långt innan idén om biologisk rasism dök upp. Det säger Mattias Gardell, professor @UU_University. Expos Faktalabbet har pratat med Mattias om vad rasism är och hur den tar sig uttryck. https://bit.ly/3g79nJM

Content Warning: Text description of image in previous post Rich white man holding an assault rifle (pointed away), pointing a finger at unfocused protestor in the foreground. White woman stands besides the man holding a hand gun looking away. Unfocused protestor in foreground is pointing both hands towards the rich white man.
The white man and protestor seems to be exchanging arguments, perhaps shouting at each other.
(This is one of many images widely circulating in media recently of a couple standing outside of their property holding guns while a protest passes by.)
RT by @guldfiske: In Sweden there’s a traditional radio talk during summer. Lately, the most important ones are done in English as well. First this year, and impossible to topple, @GretaThunberg : https://sverigesradio.se/avsnitt/1535269?fbclid=IwAR0aqG
"On June 14 a family court judge ruled in favour of an unconventional family — made up of two men and a woman — who all wanted to be legally recognized as parents to a child the woman had in 2017.
All three now have their names listed as legal guardians. Before, the law only allowed two people to be listed."
I think the concept of "species loneliness" has it right. Living in an economic system that regards nonhuman beings - plants, animals, ecosystems - as a mere stock of resources to be exploited leaves us on some subconscious level deeply troubled by the trauma of our separation.https://nitter.net/jasonhickel/status/1272559742502633473#m
Content Warning: From another thread, Metadiscussion, derailing, block-policy. (This post is a continuation of a discussion from another thread)
(I read your response feel free to take your time to answer. I'm a bit busy afk as well, so no worry but thanks for the heads up.)
First of all I want to point out that I'm not straight out denying that the problematic post is dog whistling.
But I think this calls for some metadiscussion to minimise misconceptions, I don't want to make any assumptions on our shared views and terminology, that tends to create problems further along the discussion.
So here are some statements that I just want to check we both agree with.
1) Dog whistling is using a specific expression to signal a specific view without expressing that view itself. Often used to express problematic views.
2) Sealioning is the constant argumentation of something not for the sake of a good dialogue, but for the sake of derailing the discussion and/or wear out the person engaged with. Often using fallacies and provoking the person engaged with. (Ok, this might not be the perfect definition, if you've got a good one feel free to provide it.)
3) The initial problematic post is a straw man attack, and possible a red herring. (which might very well be used for sealioning)
I think we should start from there, so we don't engage in further misconceptions about each others viewpoints. We can then further discuss the subject if you wish.

Me while coding: Hmmm... this isn't what I expected this piece of code to do. Me 1 second later: Wait, what do I want this piece of code to do? *confused about why I even wrote the code in the first place*
Perhaps unpopular and unconventional opinion of problems of peer review in science and academia:
Click to open/closeWorks published only in for profit journals inevitably have a conflict of interest and should be regarded as problematic for that reason. It also inhibits proper peer review. If a work can't be freely accessed and referred* to it shouldn't be regarded as a serious contribution to the scientific community.
* A reference to a work that isn't freely available is also highly problematic.
Rudan is far from the nicest nature reserve, but it's very accessible if you live in Stockholm. I had 4 hours between work, so I took a short trip to satisfy my two strongest withdrawal syndromes - that for tea and that for nature.
