Geez that's a question
Probs but he did found modern psychology
Then the neofreudians came around
Which shifted to behavioral theory I think?
oh yea conditioning
Classical and operant conditioning were behaviorism
Which was tested with animals
I thought it was Skinner who started behaviorism wasn't it?
Was he a neofreudian?
Turns out he wasn't one
He came up with the conditioning theory
Watson came up with behaviorism
Sorry to shift topics quickly, however, the previous points lead me to yet another disturbing corner of psuedoscience-in-the-name-of-promoting-degeneracy:
John Money. The bizarre man that castrated a kid and made him get fucked by his sibling (while both kids were toddlers) just to prove gender wasn't aligned with sex.
How the fuck did he manage to go from predator-with-a-god-complex to being rated highly credible by most of Academia?
Was that before ethics were a thing
Sounds awfully extreme
Born in 1921
Tranny book published in 1969
Gender was a made up term in the 50s I think
the David Reimer stuff is still very controversial
Really? I could've sworn it's cited almost everywhere by trannies and cis-allies
Oh it was a made up term in the 50s to identify with "one's self"
NO it's not.
Most transgenders don't site MOney.
They'd site judith butler or Serano and the brain chemistry differences in transgenders
which is pretty hard to argue agianst
It is a false distinction between one's identity and biological sex though
Dressing as a girl doesn't make you a girl
No but having the brain chemistry of a female might.
I doubt that is the main drive
Grey vs black matter precentanges in a transgender persons brain are aligned with the sex they idenitfy with
so whether or to what extent gender is a social construct isn't really the issue
But yeah MOney was a monster
No arguments from me on that
Well then the conclusion is that it's a biochemical problem
Or a social problem depending how you look at it.
It's the problem of which came first the chicken or the egg?
Damn, I must've been living under such a fuckin rock.
Social problem is an understatement to political correctness today
