    The goal (of a “demo”) was / is:

    to help the visitor change their perspective of the world through the lens of the demo. In trying to shift their thinking, we had to invite them to see the world differently. The demo was a prop. Everything about what I do as a researcher is rooted in the goal of using empirical work to help challenge people’s assumptions and generate new frames that people can work with.

    Fundamentally, the problem with systemic sexism is that it’s not the individual people who are the problem. It’s the culture.

    When educators encourage students to focus on sourcing quality information, they encourage them to critically ask who is publishing the content.

    Think about how this might play out in communities where the “liberal media” is viewed with disdain as an untrustworthy source of information…or in those where science is seen as contradicting the knowledge of religious people…or where degrees are viewed as a weapon of the elite to justify oppression of working people. Needless to say, not everyone agrees on what makes a trusted source.

    We live in a moment where people do not know how to hear or understand one another

    we live in a moment where people do not know how to hear or understand one another. And our obsession with quantitative data means that we think we understand when we hear numbers in polls, which we use to judge people whose views are different than our own. This is not productive.

    I blame the media. Reality check time.

    Understanding how people really think can be used to communicate truths, not Big Lies or ads for products.
