Over the last couple of weeks, I have been accused of not being able to “critical think” because I don’t agree with the Depp v Heard court case.
This post today will be one of the last times I talk about DvH, but I’m using it to talk about a topic. Quiet frankly I’m over it all. I know what’s right and what’s wrong.
So, what is critical thinking, exactly?
- the objective analysis and evaluation of an issue in order to form a judgement.”professors often find it difficult to encourage critical thinking among their students”
Now when I get accused of not being a critical thinker, I have noticed that with people who are clearly not being objective. Always accuse me of “rambling” and making “accusations”. Of course they can’t actually back it up.
I truly do believe though, that a LOT of us have lost this skill, some probably never had it too begin with.
Take transphobic people, as another example. They do the same things, but instead they’ll call you a homophobe, pedophile, groomer, misogynists’. When you back up what you’re saying with facts, they’ll either call you one of those names, or just block. Then keep writing about you from a block.
So too take a little but more of a coherent look at critical thinking. I’ve made up a table below, too take a look at some facts, about the D v H case, and transphobia. When you’ve read through, write what you’re thinking below in the comments.
|D v H||Transphobia|
|D, been found twice of wife beating.||Majority of cis women always support trans people.|
|Legal analysts say the Jury got it wrong.||The top psychiatry assoc, say conversion therapy is mental torture|
|The GOP, Right, Christian Extremist support D||The GOP, Right, Christian Extremist, do not support the T|
|D is still trying to control.||Tran’s people do just want to get on with their day.|
|D wanted to keep Heard quiet, and he has not fought for male victims.||Trans people are fighting for them, but also WITH/FOR cis women|
|Deppford Wives make up lies, insult and harass those who don’t agree with them.||Transphobes make up lies, insult and harass those who don’t agree with them.|
|Oh, the gas-lighting||Oh, the gas-lighting|
