Critical Thinking

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?

  1. 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

I had a really bizarre day yesterday, it was roller coaster at seeing the bad, the good and the mentally unhealthily obsessive with the “Hollywood” culture…And it got me thinking of a situation that I went through and have come through.

What is it with people and this whole…Two people do the exact same thing and yet, people can condemn one and revere the other? There was a situation I found myself publicly shamed, yet someone else came along, only a year or so later, did the same thing and they were revered. I have to say I did not feel ashamed having a one night stand (and it was the first time I’d ever had one) and did not realise that it’s something I should be ashamed of, or was other people’s business. The same situation kept happening, to the point I have nothing to do with this group anymore.

It’s always bugged me though, mainly because I guess because I don’t see it just with me anymore. I see it pretty much every where I go. It’s something I don’t understand. Sure if it’s someone I love and respect, I might be a bit shocked and try to understand. I just don’t get it.
