Our flippers

I agree that human behavior is evolved, but I believe that we evolved into humans. If we still had the hierarchies and behaviors of apes on the savannah, we’d be apes on the savannah. (Also, even apes are often more complex than Kanazawa assumes.) It’s like saying “dolphins are descended from land creatures with legs, therefore dolphins have legs.” And the idea that men are harem-keeping sperm machines and women are antler-contest-judging baby machines is some serious dolphin legs. Morality, creativity, abstraction, empathy—these are our flippers.

Aus der Polanski-Diskussion

Bezugnehmend auf die Kommentare unter diesem Tagesspiegel-Artikel über den Fall Polanski bloggt die Autorin:

Auch bitte dort bei Gelegenheit die Kommentare verfolgen, die meisten Kommentatoren, die darauf beharren, dass die Unschuldsvermutung gelte, solange er nicht rechtmäßig verurteilt sei, kommen von Männern. Die Kommentare, die darauf beharren, dass politisches Kalkül bei all dem mit im Spiel sei, kommen von Männern. Die Kommentare, die darauf beharren, dass es im höchsten Fall Missbrauch und keine Vergewaltigung war, kommen von Männern. Die Kommentare, die das Rechtswesen hoch und runter durch deklinieren, kommen von Männern. Die Kommentare, die dem Mädchen und seiner Mutter die Schuld geben, kommen von Männern. Gegenkommentare kommen von Männern und Frauen.

Active Consent am Beispiel der gastronomischen Belästigung

Waiter: Would you like some coffee?
Woman: Yes, please.
Waiter: Just say when. (Starts to pour.)
Woman: There. (He keeps pouring.) That’s fine. (He pours.) Stop! (She grabs the pot; there is coffee everywhere.)
Waiter: Yes, ma‘am.
Woman: Well, why didn‘t you stop pouring?
Waiter: Oh, I wasn‘t sure you meant it.
Woman: Look, of course I meant it! I have coffee all over my lap! You nearly burned me!
Waiter: Forgive me, ma‘am, but you certainly looked thirsty. I thought you wanted more.
Woman: But -
Waiter: And you must admit, you did let me start to pour.

Das unbekannte Wesen

Das Buch „Why Women Have Sex“ von Cindy Meston und David Buss ist anderswo schon ausführlich kritisiert worden, zum Beispiel bei Figleaf. Holly von The Pervocracy kommentiert es so:

I‘m going to write a book, „Why Women Have Lunch.“ Hunger is the obvious reason, but as my highly scientific survey reveals, women may also have lunch to socialize, to take a break from work, or even simply out of habit. Some women want the opportunity to try a new food, and others may want warm food on a cold day. Wow, women sure are complicated!

Freundliche Hinweise

Via Figleaf fand ich eine Umdrehung von „rape prevention“-Verhaltensempfehlungen, die sich üblicherweise an potentielle Verwaltigungsopfer richten. So klingt es, wenn die potentiellen Täter entsprechend angesprochen werden:

1. Don’t put drugs in people’s drinks in order to control their behavior.

2. When you see someone walking by themselves, leave them alone!

3. If you pull over to help someone with car problems, remember not to assault them!

4. NEVER open an unlocked door or window uninvited.

5. If you are in an elevator and someone else gets in, DON’T ASSAULT THEM!

6. Remember, people go to laundry to do their laundry, do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.

7. USE THE BUDDY SYSTEM! If you are not able to stop yourself from assaulting people, ask a friend to stay with you while you are in public.

8. Always be honest with people! Don’t pretend to be a caring friend in order to gain the trust of someone you want to assault. Consider telling them you plan to assault them. If you don’t communicate your intentions, the other person may take that as a sign that you do not plan to rape them.

9. Don’t forget: you can’t have sex with someone unless they are awake!

10. Carry a whistle! If you are worried you might assault someone “on accident” you can hand it to the person you are with, so they can blow it if you do.

And, ALWAYS REMEMBER: if you didn’t ask permission and then respect the answer the first time, you are commiting a crime- no matter how “into it” others appear to be.
