“you only started liking it cause everyone else did”
everyone was talking about it
i got curious
i watched it
and i liked it
how is that a bad thing
If you don’t use an empty house to sing obnoxiously and off key in your underwear you are doing life wrong
do rappers just call each other like
"hey i’m makin a music video today you’re not in the song but do you want to be in the background smelling money or something"
The only disabled character in Harry Potter was locked away for her entire life and killed at a young age. I just realized this…and it doesn’t make me feel good…
don’t forget the longbottoms being treated as a pity story and lockhart as a joke
and most illnesses and disorders and disabilities just being ‘cured’ with magic
Moody is about the only prominent disabled character and he spends half his screen time unconscious at the bottom of a case
Because I’ve studied Psychology.
Freud’s theories are unscientific, they’re untestable, they’re prone to circular reasoning, and are just… well, nonsense. He got the idea for his theory of the unconscious because he didn’t believe a patient when she told him her father had molested her, his reasoning was ‘a man would never do that, that must be repressed sexual fantasies.’ The vast majority of his so called clinical assessments are useless, because again - they’re based on nonsense. Thanks to him the general public to have this very misinformed view of psychology and as a result he’s set the science back because people assume that all of it is as wishy-washy and unfounded as the theories of a cocaine addict with a mother fixation.
Agree 100% and I think his theories, such as they are, actually continue to set back physiological progress to this day.
I may have once rolled my eyes when a professor mentioned we were going to study Freud and then giggled because I thought she was joking when she said she was a firm believer in Freudian analysis.
She didn’t really like me….
I took a psychology class at a community college in rural NC taught by a badass feminist army veteran. We got to the chapter on Freud and she literally said: “We’re not going to study this because it’s bullshit.” We spent exactly one class discussing why it was bullshit, then moved on to study the scientific method, Milgram and Harlow, and the development of ethical standards in the field of psychology. That is what Freud is to people who actually understand his contribution to the field: a gateway into discussing the way ideas become scientific theories and the ethics surrounding the development of said theories.
Because it’s not science if you literally say, “I don’t trust this woman because lol hysterical vagina syndrome, here’s the only misogynistic explanation for what’s going on, she is totes envious of the penis, haha, fact.”
I’m so glad I’m not the only person who recognizes this
Freud’s big contribution was the realization that maybe you could talk things through. It went like crap from there, but without that, I don’t think the later (and actually successful) therapies would have been viable. I think it’s useful to understand his role in the development of the field, but his actual theories are so fucking stupid it’s sort of terrifying.
I like learning from reading this because I had a high school one semester psychology course which made me go O_O at Freud very strongly
I’ve learned about Freud in multiple psychology classes (psych major… lots of them), particularly Adult Psychopathology, but it was more to look at the history of the discipline and how his ideas shaped things. Essentially it was “these were his ideas and this is why they are wrong.” He was crap at doing actual science, but he had a very strong influence on psychology and thus we learn about him as part of the history (his ridiculousness kickstarted better ways, thank goodness) and a cautionary tale…
