Emma Watson's feminism is to accepting. submitted by thatcoolmartian to tumblrinaction

I love this sort of thing, I really do. Whoever came up with "intersectionality" is a fucking genius. Rather than be happy that a high-profile celebrity is endorsing feminism, she goes on the attack because the celebrity in question isn't black!

Men can't be feminist. White women can't be feminist. Trans women can't be feminist. Straight women can't be feminist. Healthy people can't be feminist. Thin people can't be feminist.

What we're left with is the ultimate special snowflake. A cis, fat, black, lesbian with a speech impediment in a wheelchair. And best of all, SHE can't be a feminist because she's not Asian!

Scientists can use magnets to make you less religious and prejudiced submitted by kikiomishi to science

That's basically what TMS does. It uses magnets to temporarily disable a region of cortex, simulating a lesion.

An alternative title for this post is "Scientists can simulate brain injuries that would make you less religious and prejudiced".

Billion-dollar brain training industry a shamnothing but placebo, study suggests submitted by Mixplate to science

My_Not-PC_Alt 1 points 13 points (+14|-1) ago

Interesting, an article on /v/science that is actually from my field of research.

First off, way to go arstechnica for overplaying the actual science in their reporting. This, in a nutshell. Literally all the study is showing is that placebo effects are important to consider when we do cognitive training experiments. I can't find the pdf of the actual study right away, but their abstract is pretty clear that this is really just a small study to illustrate the importance of controlling for placebo effects.

The trouble is that the "double-blind" standard is actually inappropriate for behavioral interventions. And really it's about practical considerations: people are kinda reluctant to join a weeks-long experiment with absolutely no information about what's happening to them, so good luck getting participants if you don't have at least a small carrot to draw them in. Also, people are way more motivated to look for "what's really going on" in a psychology study than they are with pills, so good luck keeping things secret. And also (and here I speak from experience), when you have to sit with people and train them how to do things in an intervention-like setting it's really fucking hard to get good research assistants who can do the task when they don't know what the fuck they're doing. Handing out white pills from a bottle is an entirely different thing, and so you're really comparing apples and oranges with the whole "double-blind" requirement.

Which is why the entire field is dominated by (you guessed it) studies that have experimental controls, and control groups, and try their best to keep from telling participants what's going on - but aren't "double blind". Scientists actually know what they're doing, and they know when to draw the line with standards. That's why training studies typically need a pretty strong effect size to be accepted as "effective". The author should know, she's published other training studies that aren't double blind.

That said, speaking as an insider, Lumosity went too far with their advertising. Their paradigms don't transfer and don't train anything worthwhile. But that's not to say that other brain-traning methods don't work. And saying the entire industry is a sham is utter horseshit. Beth Mole doesn't have the first idea what she's talking about.

[Breitbart] GamerGate Critic Sarah Nyberg Claimed To Be A Pedophile: Milo Yiannopoulos submitted by Quite_Intangible to KotakuInAction

As entertaining as this type of shit is, I really hate this side of GG.

Yeah we get it Milo, a bunch of anti-GG people are real assholes who only support "social justice" to cover up their very-sordid pasts. You did the same to Harper, and look where it got you: nowhere.

You know what would be actually helpful Milo? Try putting as much effort into painstakingly documenting the ethical violations of Kotaku's writing staff and editors. If GG is really about ethics in journalism, why is Milo spending so much time smearing people?

Yeah good luck enforcing that. Saying fuck everyone and everything is how you win in business. Just ask Trump.

Corporations have no national loyalty, acting like they will is naive.

Edit: Half a dozen downvoats and not a single one of you cucks has even tried to counter my argument. You all suck on the teat of corporations and develop a stockholm-syndrome type love for them and think they'll love you back. They don't give a shit about you and you know it, but you play pretend because it's too scary to believe the truth. I bet half the downvoats are just because I pointed out (correctly, I might add) that your hero Trump did and continues to do the same thing I'm describing. Your hero complex is too big to recognize that "Making America Great Again" is just another corporate lie to get you to sell your souls. The only difference between Hillary and Trump is that he owns the corporation whose interests he's going to put in front of the cucked voters rather than simply being bought out.

In that case it should be easy for you to provide us with a link saying so.

Go ahead.
