Would that small ideologically -blinded group include the nice Dr Brash ?
He's one of the dudes handing out blindfolds
Brilliant work, Keith. Look forward to an update when the nex tax system is announced in the May Budget.
Would also be interesting to see the same treatment from the perspective of a small business owner employing staff, including all those costs of doing business that we have so few of compared with other nations. More complex, I know.
It is more important to have 1) a recommendation from I reader I trust 2) positive experience of the author 3) PAS people making me feel stupid if I haven't read it.
About The Cat in the Hat, well known speculative work..
masculine and feminine is gender
Actually, that is less confusable than "man" or "woman", given common usage.
So what I wrote above would say:
Females who do not have babies are not therefore males. However, it does affect their relationship with the socially-negotiated feminine role.
So my biologically male cat should actually be referred to as a "man"?
"Dude" will do, if you're talking about Colin
Still confusing sex with gender here.
Sex = male, female = biological.
Gender = man, woman = social.
Females who do not have babies are not therefore males. However, it does affect their relationship with the socially negotiated role of 'woman'. That has changed a lot over the decades, especially with women allowed to venture further than the kitchen and nursery now, but it's still fraught.
It's one of the things I enjoy about Mad Men, watching how much some things have changed and how little others have.
Some languages have genders for objects. I doubt it's because lightbulbs or schoolbuses are male or female.
Ben, smart folk have been debating the nature of human experience and "truth" for centuries.
You're using words like "reality" and "illusion" and "represent" in ways that suggest your thinking about this area is differently grounded to that of say Dr Tiso whose study specialised in that (and who therefore uses terms like "fictions" differently than most).
We weave our worlds with stories. Because Avatar is a very popular and powerful one, it shapes how people can think about what is real and what is meaningful to them and other humans.
Though nothing wrong with a little postneorealism.
Or even perhaps Keith talking about Google.cn:
