Someone cut in front of me at Subway today.

At Subway...

Details follow:

When I stepped up to the counter, there was only one employee out and she was ringing up another customer's order at the register. I waited by the bread section for a moment until another employee came out and asked for my order. Around that time I noticed a lady standing several feet from the counter considering the menu.

So there I was, ordering a sandwich, when the lady stepped into line behind me. Moments later, she shoves past me and makes an order at the register. Her facial expression was as if this were the normal thing to do and what I was doing puzzled her.

I'll give her the benefit of the doubt and say that's very likely what happened in her mind, although I wouldn't discount that her rudeness indicates she thought I was causing some kind of problem and wasting her time. I believe so because she is Japanese, and this Subway is in Japan. It isn't the first time I have observed that Subway faces very serious challenges in marketing to the Japanese.

The sandwich-shop paragadim is foriegn to them in every sense of the word, and I am not sure it can ever fully integrate with Japan's fast-food culture.

First of all, there's a taboo against custom ordering western food. No one ever asks for a cheeseburger without pickles or with extra anything in Japan; Subway confronts them with making a series of uncomfortable, and--from their point of view--unnecessary decisons.

My instinct tells me everything older than a recent outage is probably borked. Images in posts over a week or two old are likely to be missing.

Treating women as sex objects interferes with their activities. Men too can be treated as sex objects, but it doesn't happen in a way that causes real problems for them.

I think there are two things here that are important to touch on: the first is how sexism and patriarchal worldviews *held by anthropologists* affect the practice of Anthropology, and the second is how useful the concept of sexism is for understanding other cultures.

The first one is, I think, relatively uncontroversial at this point: Sexism has and continues to be a huge problem in Anthropology, and it has a pronounced effect on how research is done. Lots of great people are trying to fix this with a combination of reflexivity–trying as best you can to become aware of your own biases and account for/be transparent about them–and feminist theory. @ruralarchaeologist is an excellent Feminist Archaeologist on tumblr who is doing archaeology in a way that strives not to make gendered assumptions about the past, but feminist theory is useful in all of the four fields of Anthropology, especially for guy-type anthro people like me who have a lot of extra unlearning to do. Basically: Feminist science is “better” science, wherein feminism is a deeper understanding of the role that gender plays in your own society and how it effects your thoughts, actions, and day-to-day life. At least, that’s how I was taught.

Regarding pre-agricultural societies specifically (by which I assume you mean “societies that predate the invention of agriculture anywhere in the world”), there’s not a lot of data to go on (compared to, you know, people we can directly observe and interact with), so checking your gender assumptions at the door is super-important.

The second thing–how useful is the concept of “sexism” when understanding cultures that are very different from our own (agricultural, state) societies–is, I think, a lot more debated. It’s important to remember that gender roles are not inherently sexist, so when you are studying other cultures one should not necessarily start with the assumption that women are subjugated and men hold power. Or the assumption that power and violence are common and normalized. You shouldn’t even start with the assumption that there are two genders. This is all related to the idea of cultural relativism: peoples attitudes towards anything, gender included, should be understood in the context of their own culture; not in the context of ours.

However, it’s important to recognize that patriarchal state societies have had an influence all over the world: colonization is a thing; and capitalism, white supremacy, and patriarchy probably shouldn’t be completely ignored while doing research on contemporary societies. If you want an interesting viewpoint on the obligation of researchers to be social justice-y, check out Philippe Bourgois’ landmark piece on Anthropological Ethics. It’s free and accessible!

Aren't a lot of academics also kinda sjw?

Cryomancer 16/12/04(Sun)05:38 No. 760578

No. While the anthropologists I've met certainly do have a love of mankind that trancends sexism and racism, they aren't in it to set right what is wrong now and rarely take issue with current social conflicts from a modern point of view. These people know, in great detail, some of the worst mistakes makind has ever made and they're mostly concerned that we do no repeat history, which might give you the impression that they stand for social justice as most of the mistakes that led to one culture or another dying out involved sexual, racial, or economic disparity.

I'm sick of people trying to define Anonymous, sick of hearing about new operations that will garner no support, produce no lulz, and, more importantly, produce no results aside from a couple of retweets on twitter and a self congratulary slap on the back from those that retweeted it. What the very airwolf is going on? Anonymous has turned into a bunch of pussy SJW faggots who wear stupid mask last time i checked we the people from the chans were the real anonymous and anonymous is a internet hate machine not a force for good and so to the V For Vendetta faggots i say please do us a favor and kill yourselves You do not understand the culture from which Anonymous was born, and you are doing more damage than good to our title as The Final Boss of The Internet.

This place never changes, it's almost the same as it was when Chanology was still fagging around.
Although there was a time when they closed /cake/ and there was an exodus to 99.
