Which do you think is more harmful: Sexism or Racism?

Posted by: Foodiesoul

Both sexism and racism need to stop because they're only causing harm and spreading lies and stereotypes that aren't true. Sexism and racism NEED to stop! We should all be treated equally, not oppressed and treated unfairly! Which do you think is more harmful: sexism or racism?

Both are equally harmful and will have a huge impact on the victim's life. I can't choose between the two.

The vast majority of countries are very racially homogeneous (and the ones that aren't are objectively the most tolerant) almost all have relatively equal sex distributions, simply more people are affected by sexism than by racism.

Both racism (at least, systematic racism) and sexism are virtually non-existent in today's society. So, why are we still talking about these non-issues?

@NewLifeChristian, I think you are confusing the west with the world, I'm sure Yemeni women think sexism is still an issue.

@NewLifeChristian I think experts in Racial Politics, Gender Studies, and Sociology would disagree with you
CharlesGrey says2016-07-11T00:39:20.8861991Z
If someone is an "expert" in racial politics or gender studies that's a warning sign they are about to say something either hilarious or terrifying, either way it's probably inaccurate. This is the field where less than half of studies can be replicated.

You forgot sociology, and also confirmation bias.
BrendanD19 says2016-07-11T00:48:51.8283088Z
Also, replication is not always required in the social sciences. Social Sciences are not exact sciences as humans are naturally erratic and unpredictable
CharlesGrey says2016-07-11T00:49:25.3750897Z
I didn't mention sociology because sociology even though it has the same replicability issue it is obviously at least somewhat legitimate. And what about confirmation bias?
BrendanD19 says2016-07-11T00:50:42.9219790Z
Your argument is guilty of confirmation bias.
CharlesGrey says2016-07-11T00:50:53.2483846Z
...If claims are maid based on studied that cannot be replicated then those claims are factually incorrect exact science or not.
CharlesGrey says2016-07-11T00:52:21.4907962Z
Umm how am I guilty of confirmation bias? I think you're assuming my inherent bias is against gender studies and race politics.
CharlesGrey says2016-07-11T00:53:08.7707590Z
Making an argument does not equate to confirmation bias.
BrendanD19 says2016-07-11T00:54:23.3174242Z
You cannot replicate in the social sciences. Humans are unpredictable and thus replication is impossible.
CharlesGrey says2016-07-11T00:56:08.4719790Z
And that's exactly why they aren't legitimate at least under the current set up...
