What's our stance on sex work?
  • We should accept that there's both people for whom sex work is just like any other job, and people for whom it implies renouncing to an element of privacy they'd rather to share only with their partner/s. Should it be legalized? By criminalizing it you're screwing over a lot of people who do want to perform that work and don't provoke any issues in the world, but legalizing it might have ramifications that are horrendous.

    For instance, say your country has an unemployment system where you'd lose your unemployment benefits if you receive a job offer and reject it, and immediately after getting fired you receive an offer to work at a brothel. That's great if, for you, there's no emotional element attached to sex, but for a lot of people that would be a nightmare, especially if they need either a job or the unemployment benefits.

    So, my take: decriminalize sex work but don't regulate it yet. Once we have either socialism or UBI or both, and no one gets under risk of suffering personal misery for not having a job for a while, legalize it like all other jobs.

  • I'm seriously on the fence with this one. A couple of points make it really difficult for it to not to be satire, but I've met guys who would unironically think of "can think for herself" as a malus - but they wouldn't admit it out loud. Now, can there be some kind of cave creature so pulled apart from civilized life that they would think this and post it?

  • Zelensky wants China at Ukraine peace talks, cites ‘influence on Russia’ | CNN
  • As I hinted at at a recent thread, one of China's geopolitical principles is the respect for internationally agreed territorial integrity, because their legitimacy to reclaim Taiwan as theirs relies on it. China tolerates Russia's stunt because they're allies of necessity, but it forces them into an uncomfortable position.

  • [US] Rep. Robert Garcia calls out Peru for classifying trans, intersex & nonbinary people as mentally ill
  • The way other countries do it is by considering "gender dysphoria" an illness. This way, you aren't ill for being trans, but you can absolutely feel sick if you're trans but cannot transition, so the cure for gender dysphoria is to facilitate medical transitioning.

The post-colonial status of France in plenty of countries in West Africa also make a sizable amount of people there hostile to France, even if the situation is more nuanced. Personally, I'm not a fan of any empire.

  • Kim's sister denies North Korea has supplied weapons to Russia
  • Russian's current military doctrine involves overwhelming its opponent with larger amount of fire over precision. This means that they give preference to dumb munitions (this is, projectiles which trajectory you cannot change once they've been fired) over precise munitions, and North Korea is pretty much capable of providing a bunch of the former. Given North Korea's current economy and the fact that not many countries would be interested in that kind of armament, it would make perfect sense for Russia and North Korea to make that trade. Nothing of this are judgements of value over any country, just facts and analysis.

  • Marjorie Taylor Greene pushes wild conspiracy theory about Slovakia PM’s shooting: ‘No wonder they shot him’
  • The idea that the Slovak Prime Minister was shot because of his views in vaccines is ludicrous. The shooter had plenty of views on plenty of different issues, having supported both far right and social liberal parties. Doesn't look like vaccines were relevant in any way. This is just Taylor Greene sparking unjustified indignation among her base.

  • Is this discrimination?

    Hi everyone. I don't have ADHD, but someone who joined my family some time ago does (we'll call him T), and is currently going through some trouble which I find quite perplexing.

    Some background: T has two daughters (8yo and 6yo) under shared custody with his ex-wife (they spend roughly the same time with each of them during the week). T has had some serious difficulties through his life, some of which are structural and will likely stay with him forever, such as difficulty to hold onto a job or keeping his house tidy (even less so when his kids are home), and others of which are temporary by nature, such as the recent death of his mother.

    His daughters had been having some issues for quite some time, including school performance and very frequent misbehaving. I don't particularly dislike kids, but holy shit, the very moment they got used to me, they became imps, almost constant screaming, fighting each other, not attending to reason, and so on. And I've barely seen them a handful of times. Anyhow, T decided to seek the root of these issues, discussed with his ex-wife the possibility of getting them evaluated for ADHD, and the ex-wife refused. T went forwards anyway, and the girls are now diagnosed with ADHD, and assigned to a psychologist who should theoretically have a session with them each month, but in practice, they're given less than 5 appointments a year. In general, T's complaints that he wanted more guidance on what to do with them have fallen on deaf ears.

    A few weeks ago, social services knock into T's home, and naturally, they find that the house is a mess, because it always is. They take note of it all, and recently summoned him for a meeting.

    T's current partner recently told me how the meeting went: social services claimed that the kids are sometimes late to class and they sometimes don't go at all, attributed all the responsibility to him, and he refuted that, while he's sometimes late when it's his turn to take them to school, they only completely miss class when they're staying with their mother. Social services disregarded this (shouldn't they have the means to corroborate it?), and proceeded to explain that, as a person with ADHD who cannot keep his life in order, he doesn't seem to have the competencies to raise the kids, so they want to impose a change in custody where they would stay with him less than 33% of the time.

    What I'm getting from this is that the only thing the administration will take into account when determining whether you should be raising your kids or not is your medical conditions and how disorganized is your house. The kids have some issues, sure (I'm not arguing that they being late to class or missing at all is ok), but if there are two separated parents, and one has an ADHD diagnosis and the other doesn't, is it ok to attribute all issues on the diagnosed parent rather than checking where the problems are coming from? Shouldn't the fact that the kids have ADHD a reason to want to make sure and the parent who does also have it to be more involved in their upbringing, since the one who doesn't will have less experience with it and its difficulties?

    Study suggests up to 1 in 5 U.S. adults currently suffer from major religious trauma symptoms
    www.nbcnews.com Religious trauma still haunts millions of LGBTQ Americans

    Some mental health experts are advocating for religious trauma to be considered an official disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

    Religious trauma still haunts millions of LGBTQ Americans

    > Swift-Godzisz is among the 1 in 3 adults in the United States who have suffered from religious trauma at some point in their life, according to a 2023 study published in the Socio-Historical Examination of Religion and Ministry Journal. That same study suggests up to 1 in 5 U.S. adults currently suffer from major religious trauma symptoms.

    > Religious trauma occurs when an individual’s religious upbringing has lasting adverse effects on their physical, mental or emotional well-being, according to the Religious Trauma Institute. Symptoms can include guilt, shame, loss of trust and loss of meaning in life. While religious trauma hasn’t officially been classified as a mental disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), there is debate among psychiatrists about whether that should change.

    > Experts say LGBTQ people — who represent more than 7% of the U.S. population, according to a 2023 Gallup poll — experience religious trauma at disproportionate rates and in unique ways. Very little research has been done in this field, but a 2022 study found that LGBTQ people who experience certain forms of religious trauma are at increased risk for suicidality, substance abuse, homelessness, anxiety and depression. And as political animus toward the LGBTQ community intensifies ahead of the 2024 presidential election, many queer people say their pain is resurfacing.

    Macron calls for 'lasting ceasefire' in Gaza (plus others)
    www.tbsnews.net Macron calls for 'lasting ceasefire' in Gaza

    The Israeli military has said it “regrets the harm” caused by an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) strike that killed dozens of people in the Maghazi refugee camp in the centre of Gaza earlier this week

    Macron calls for 'lasting ceasefire' in Gaza

    I actually want to aggregate several articles from the last couple of days, for good reason. Let's hope the mods understand:

    Biden says he is pushing for six-week Gaza pause

    China Calls on Israel to Halt Military Operations in Gaza as Soon as Possible

    Macron calls for 'lasting ceasefire' in Gaza

    German foreign minister heads to Israel to urge for ceasefire as IDF prepares to enter Rafah

    Egypt, Slovenia call for immediate ceasefire in Gaza

    UK Foreign Secretary calls for ‘immediate pause in the fighting’

    Notice that even countries that have taken a favorable position towards Israel have asked for a ceasefire in the last couple of days. This is due to the imminent Israeli attack on Rafah, where most of Gazan displaced population is currently located, which to any rational observer is a giant warning that we may soon see a catastrophe.

    Rafah’s 1 million refugees fear Israeli onslaught after night of bombardment

    [ I would have liked to link to an article that relates both the latest diplomatic moves by so many countries and what's just about to happen, but unfortunately the only one I have is in Spanish, so I'm trying to do this is whatever way the community's rules allow. Please consider the possibility of allowing news aggregations in the same post. ]

    Calls for ceasefire in Gaza are mounting up before catastrophe: USA, China, France, Germany, Egypt, UK

    Allow me to aggregate plenty of news in the same post for a good reason. Heads of State, of government and ministers of plenty of countries though the world have urged Israel to pause hostilities during the last few days, including many that have positioned with them during the last few months.

    Biden says he is pushing for six-week Gaza pause

    China Calls on Israel to Halt Military Operations in Gaza as Soon as Possible

    Macron calls for 'lasting ceasefire' in Gaza

    German foreign minister heads to Israel to urge for ceasefire as IDF prepares to enter Rafah

    Egypt, Slovenia call for immediate ceasefire in Gaza

    UK Foreign Secretary calls for ‘immediate pause in the fighting’

    The reason for this is that everyone who is taken a hard look at the situation is well aware that the next move declared by Israel is going to have catastrophic dimensions: if they attack and invade Rafah, the Gazan city where the immense majority of displaced population has ended up, we'll see the death of tens of thousands of civilians in a very short time, to the point that even Israeli allies might have difficulty justifying it.

This ends up cementing the ludonarrative dissonance where the player has to justify themselves into thinking that what they're doing is morally acceptable, despite being presented with actually ethical in-lore alternatives that they just do not have access to. It is understandable that, from a game design perspective, the Pokemon/Palworld developers do not want to spend significant effort into reworking the mechanics of Pokeballs/spheres, which are already effectively fun for their gameplay loops, but that leads them into the position where Team Plasma and the Free Pal Alliance have to become caricatures of their actual ideas, which on the other hand is a waste for their respective lores. > > Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my rambling.

    Let's discuss monotropism

    Monotropism is a theory of autism that posits that the main functional characteristic of autism is a cognitive configuration that prefers to have less channels of attention. Despite the fact that there's very little discussion about it, it is incredibly consistent regarding what we know about autism, and it might help us understand ourselves a little better.

    According to this theory, autistic brains are better wired to pour as many resources as possible in fewer tasks to focus of attention on, in contrast to allistic brains that would prefer to distribute resources among more different tasks at the same time.1

    How well does this theory in more concrete aspects of life? Let's use communication as an example. People typically use plenty of tools to communicate: verbal language, tonality, hand and facial gestures, etc. If you were to define these as physical problems, this is, tasks that must be approached and worked through by a cognitive mechanism through material means, working according to algorithms of some sort, each of these tasks would have to be separated into individual problems, along with other functions such as coordinating the information gained through each of these processes to build a somewhat coherent whole that allows you to communicate back. If your brain works faster through individual tasks, but cannot handle as many tasks at the same time, it will have a tendency towards ignoring the least useful ones.2

    If you'd prefer a more down-to-earth metaphor, imagine communication is a card game where polytropic players are receiving one card of each category (verbal language, hand gestures, facial expression, etc.) each round, while monotropic players receive as many cards each round, but they can only belong to one category. Naturally, the monotropic player is heavily incentivized to choose verbal language, because that's the main pillar of communication for contemporary human beings. If you were to give this player the form of a human child, you'd get a kid that uses language with a lot of precision and is probably using more technical words than you'd expect at their age, but doesn't look at your face and often has a very unchanging tone. You can even link this with the double empathy problem, and argue that, since communication is a cooperative two-way problem (problem understood as a task to solve), information flows better when both players are using the same channels of communication in similar intensities (this is: using more technical language isn't that useful if the other person doesn't understand it; using facial gestures isn't useful if the other person isn't looking at your face).

    Let's get more practical. If the theory is correct, it would likely follow that the very first thing you have to do in order to prevent cognitive delays in autistic babies and children would be to reduce the sensory complexity of the environment. Choosing where to focus your attention is a cognitive task, which is easily understood when you compare how capable of reading you are in your living room in comparison to a disco, where your brain has to work on filtering the music, the conversations, and the lights. If someone's brain prefers to focus on as few tasks as possible, putting them at a place with plenty of noise and lights will collapse the resources of the brain, hindering their development in an optimistic scenario or even provoking trauma in one of the worst ones.

    Note that these previous paragraphs of mine are built as narratives. The site https://monotropism.org/ explains the theory at a divulgative level, references the researchers behind it and some relevant papers, and proposes some practical avenues to improve the lives of autistic people by respecting these different cognitive needs and preferences from the experience of people who have worked with the theory at a scientific level - but it should also be mentioned that monotropism has, unfortunately, received very little attention in comparison to previous theories ( mind-blindness , extreme male brain ) that had very little evidence and have since been proven as bullshit, and therefore there's relatively little research on it despite its apparent solid predictive capacity.3

    Does any of this ring a bell to you? Can you recall experiences that could be explained through monotropism?

    1: Because virtually no person focuses all their attention in one single cognitive process at the same time, and no single person places infinitesimally small amounts of attention into an infinite number of tasks, so I think it'd be more appropriate to talk about monotropism-leaning and polytropism-leaning minds.

    2: While the human brain is not a computer, the physical infrastructure of the human mind is the brain, and in order to fulfill specific tasks, it must be able to compute the solution to problems in a material way, even if that material way is immensely different from how contemporary computers work.

    3: It might also be noted that, as far as I'm aware, the theory of monotropism would explain autism at a functional level, but not yet at a physical one. This is, while monotropism could serve as a central piece to explain fundamental practical aspects of the lives of autistic people, there would yet not be an explanation on what's the specific neurological difference between the brains of autistic and allistic people.

    Spain wants to change how it evaluates scientists—and end the ‘dictatorship of papers’

    cross-post from: https://sh.itjust.works/post/10264322

    > Spain’s much-maligned system for evaluating scientists, in which the sole criterion for career advancement is the publication of papers, is set to be overhauled under new proposals from the country’s National Evaluation and Accreditation Agency (ANECA).

    > The reforms, announced earlier this month, would for the first time see researchers at Spain’s public universities evaluated on a range of outputs besides papers, and would also encourage the distribution of findings via open-access platforms. Many scientists are welcoming the move, saying it will help academia move on from a system that has been described as establishing a “dictatorship of papers.”

    (...)

    > Under the new system, ANECA wants assessments to consider a broader range of research outputs, including “publications, patents, reports, studies, technical works, artistic works, exhibitions, archaeological excavations, [and the] creation of bibliographic records.” Assessors will no longer consider only the impact factor of the journals in which scientists publish, but also details such as whether the research reaches nonacademic audiences through news reports or government documents. Papers will also score more highly when coproduced with local communities or other nonacademic authors. And in an attempt to reduce the level of public funds being spent on publication costs, assessors will take into account papers published on noncommercial, open-access publishing platforms that don’t charge author fees, such as Open Research Europe.
