Colin in the Bath with Boats, Jane Fisher. 1996.
The fine art Ba lecturers at Falmouth university put on this show in a big old dilapidated house (mansion?) on a big private park and it was so beautiful. The space in limbo between decay and renovation, wallpaper and plaster stripped away in patches, holes bricked up, builders’ scribblings along the walls, things removed but left, fixed but unfinished - barely started, objects of purpose left useless and bewildered within the stubborn shell of a forgotten paradise.
The work, slotted in amongst the missing teeth of the building’s bare skull with no distinctive beginning or end between each artist, adds to the melancholic poetry of the structure. there is no seem between the art and the site; the viewer moves through it as one flowing detached experience, as in a dream.
The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology has dealt a devastating blow to the notion that men and women are fundamentally different when it comes to how they think and act.
“Although gender differences on average are not under dispute, the idea of consistently and inflexibly gender-typed individuals is,” Bobbi J. Carothers of Washington University in St. Louis and Harry T. Reis of the University of Rochester explained in their study. “That is, there are not two distinct genders, but instead there are linear gradations of variables associated with sex, such as masculinity or intimacy, all of which are continuous.”
Analyzing 122 different characteristics from 13,301 individuals in 13 studies, the researchers concluded that differences between men and women were best seen as dimensional rather than categorical. In other words, the differences between men and women should be viewed as a matter of degree rather than a sign of consistent differences between two distinct groups.
You mean human beings, like everything else, living and mineral, in nature exist on a series of both parallel and intersecting spectrums, and there is no such thing as a definitive binary or black/white divide?
MRAs, RadFems, and EvoPsych people everyone will be horrified to find this out.
