girls and nonbinary people are better than men like this isn’t a debate sorry
Yes it bloody well is a debate, because I’m’a debate you right now. My position: all large groups of human beings are approximately equal. My argument: humans are sufficiently unclustered as a set of data points that for any division of humanity into a couple large groups, there will be more variation within the groups than between the group averages. I can’t provide detailed stats on this because it’s hard to precisely measure betterness and even harder to survey the entire world, but the burden of proof in on you for making a specific falsifiable claim anyway.
Accepting that there is more variation betwen groups than within groups, you aren’t allowing for controlling for some things that are easily controlled for. Say you’re at a place that you know will be filled with high-intelligence, highly educated, curious and intellectual people that you expect to be mostly white and upper or upper-middle class. At this point, gender can be the dominant predictive variable over a number of things that the person cares about.
Instead of trying to define an objective form of better, let’s try to think about what better means to witchesbrue. Assuming that witchesbreu thinks highly of themselves, this would be people who would entertain horrible ideas like “women and NB people are just better than men”. These people are almost certain to be female or NB. Female and NB people are also more likely to engage in social justice issues (do I need a source for this?), which means that they have more in common with witchesbrue. Judging people who are similar to you to be better is a classic human trait, and seems plausible enough.
To quote birdsrightsativist, “y u so bad at think?”
witchesbreu’s “better” almost certainly feels like an objective term to witchesbreu. Psychoanalyzing the thinking that caused them to make that statement does not make their conclusion correct.
I do agree that this is not a debate. witchesbreu’s statement serves only to signal bigotry and tribal association with certain social justice warriors, and it is rarely worthwhile to argue directly against a bigot. The best one can do is to occasionally catch them in contradictions and hopefully create cognitive dissonance.
In this case, we should smile and wave and expect witchesbreu to exhibit antisocial behavior towards men.
