    Feminist "Psychology" (The Association for Women in Psychology)

    So... I got an email from these people...well actually from an old college friend, who was telling me about her professional life and how she has special accredidation as a feminist psychologist. We haven't spoke in several years. I decided to explore the website at her recommendation.


    AWP is a not-for-profit scientific and educational organization committed to encouraging feminist psychological research, theory, and activism. We are an organization with a history of affirming and celebrating differences, deepening challenges, and experiencing growth as feminists.

    The mission statement said a lot. Just right there. It's fine that individuals want to research a particular thing. I have no problem with this. (I would really like to do/see more thorough research on gender development myself) But I have a problem with someone with an axe to grind in some form trying to do research in a field that is notoriously soft.

    Their objectives are hilarious and scary(soul wrenchingly depressing scary):
    1. Challenging unfounded assumptions about the psychological "natures" of women and men.

    [LC: Ok, I can get this, but...]
    2. Encouraging feminist psychological research on sex and gender.
    [LC:.. it really isn't unbiased is it?]
    3. Combating the oppression of women of color.

    [LC: How is this even related to psychology? I advocate for men's rights but I'm not going to pretend that it's related to psychological research. ]
    4. Developing a feminist model of psychotherapy.
    [LC: What would this model of therapy include? What makes it better than say...Jungian or Freudian psychotherapy?]
    5. Achieving equality for women within the profession of psychology and allied disciplines.

    [LC: What? I know more female psychologists than male psychologists(though that may be a result of where I live) and they happen to be doing just as well as the men.]
    6. Promoting unity among women of all races, ages, social classes, sexual orientations, physical abilities, and religions.
    [LC: Again, this isn't even related to psychology]

    7. Sensitizing the public and the profession to the psychological, social, political, and economic problems of women.

    [LC: See above]
    8. Helping women create individual sexual identities.
    [LC: Fine, but I want to do this for men and women.]
    9. Encouraging research on the issues of concern to women of color
    [LC: ]

    I am forever amazed at feminism's parasitic behavior when it comes to racial issues, as well as many others-economics, enviromental issues etc. It is as if everything is all about feminism. But of course that is how they want it isn't it?
    Do not ever suppose that a small group of people can never change the world. INDEED it is the only thing that ever has.

    Re: Feminist "Psychology" (The Association for Women in Psychology)

    Actually I find blending gender and race interesting, it muddies things up sometimes, but some of it can be rather interesting (if you can separate what disadvantage comes from what, and then determine the multiplier effect, if there is one) Even if it is psychology

    Also ANYTHING is better then freudian psychotherapy. If they were interested in doing a women's model (perhaps a method of psychotherapy that worked better regarding interactions with women, especially as a form of group therapy that would be interesting) id be down with that

    You should join, and just shake the place up a bit.

    What else would you expect from those who can even turn men suiciding and dying in wars into 'feminist issues'?

    Not so sure, anymore.

    Why of course! My woman's voice needs to be in anything and everything to have a feminist perspective!

    It has it's flaws.(It's a bit funny to note that it really isn't practical to do everything as he suggested) But so does any other form of psychotherpay.

    I won't join it out of principle and out of a desire to maintain my individuality.

    I don't think the Queen Bee would view this idea very well.
    The most offensive thing you can do to a feminist is treat her with FULL equality.

You wont join because if you were to actually take a stand for the average HET NORMAL fucking male, your head would pop... and you would most likely find yourself on the end of what most males that dare take on the fem-machine. Out of work and screwed....

    Typical female. What? Stand up for normal everyday men? No way! I aint about to do that... I like my privvies..... Now, gimme some special type person, then we can talk... cause, you know, they is so special...

    You are so fucking transparent. I can't take it anymore. You have no right to call yoruself an MRA. You are a joke.

    Re: Feminist "Psychology" (The Association for Women in Psychology)

    Femanazi psychology?!!??! WTF?
    More like tribal witchdoctorism.

    I may not know more about mid fuck for fun and profit but I do know that psychology is saposed to be neutral on all levels and not be infulanced by polptics, but then again it seems like everything it poltical in this day and age.

    I mean was is the diffrance between femanazi mind fuckery and non femanazi mind fuckery?
    I think the only diffreance is women's naracssim and ateention whoring, basicly femanazi mind fuckery is all about women and girls and to hell with men, at lest with non femanazi mind fuckery is that there is a few things for men all though I would not call them good.
    When the femanazis tell me it's their way or the highway I tell them to fuck off and die, because at lest the highway leads to new and intresting places, their ways is a dead end.

    Re: Feminist "Psychology" (The Association for Women in Psychology)

    And there we have it - official feminist psychology.

    Now what was I saying about psychology being an ideological tool?

    Squueze hard enough and the truth comes out.
    The greatest enemy of the truth is very often not the deliberate lie - but the persistent, persuasive and unrealistic myth that the lie creates

    My previous rolf apart, this is harsh and unjustified.

    If a person gives a reason, it is not necessarily the only reason or the most pressing.

    The issue was raised by the very person being condemned. It was raised to show the unfairness and bias. Don't shoot the messenger especially if you are going to miss and shoot your own foot.

    This is not the first time. You must sit a lot.
