What do psychological experiments really show about human nature?

Your professor will not be happy with you if he says the Stanford Prison Experiment shows human nature and you say it shows the nature of white middle class college-aged boys.

Like he will not be happy at all.

The last comment is very good as well.

    I was startled that you linked to a site that lists TERFs and SWERFs, among others, as anathema. That seems incompatible with what you have written on your site.

      I was trying to show the tumblr that originated the post, instead of where I found it. I realize that was a mistake. I’m sorry, but I don’t remember where I first saw it.

    Thank you. I’m glad to see I haven’t been misunderstanding you all along!

    The sourice you linked to is interesting – how can someone unironically post such a statement while pretending that all it takes for a male to be a woman is to identify as one?

    Lord of the Flies, if all of those privileged boys had identified as girls … I am quite sure that would not have changed anything. (Haven’t read the book, but am fairly sure)
    Stanford prison experiment … certainly exactly the same.
