Research says most people who use drugs are men. And many people think there is no reason to involve #women in #drugpolicy. But they are mistaken. The drug phenomenon is not #gender neutral.

Why a #feminist perspective is essential 👉💡🧵...
Due to gendered norms and notions of #femininity that are incompatible with #drugs use, the complex realities of women are often ignored. However, a growing movement is trying to shift this perspective to better understand the unique challenges that female users face.
Let’s have a closer 👁️👁️ why…

#Women who use drugs are often judged because they don’t comply with socially constructed #norms and challenge the traditional role of women.

Al- Salam Alykum everyone, I’m Zeinab Seid Ahmed, a mother and secondary school teacher. I have been a teacher for 15+ years now, for me teaching is not just a profession, it’s our guaranteed plan to flourish as a nation and that’s exactly what I keep repeating to my students
You are our hope for a better tomorrow”
Being a mother and a teacher offers me a great opportunity to help my daughters & students shape their futures. Unfortunately sometimes the decision isn’t in their hands nor mine. Today Im going to share the story of my dear student Fatima.
Fatima was one of my brilliant students, she was delightful & energetic, aspiring to become a lawyer. She was full of hopes and dreams that she wanted to pursue.
Suddenly Fatima was absent from class for a while, I was worried about her especially that she wouldn’t miss classes+

1/9 #Colonial #Victorian tropes of #primitive and #civilised are never funny @BBCNews @BBCWorld. They were actively used to justify colonialism.

Anyone raising #Norms arguments who has not been thoroughly consistent as to those alleged norms will go on mute .... I will accept but ignore (as it is boring) partisanship etc but spare me the hypocrisy.
Also (speaking as someone without for some time now) if you do have living parents - whether or not this pandemic is on - then why are you here online arguing about things you cannot change? At least call them, or if you can, see them. Nothing else really matters by comparison.
Thank you for coming to my TED talk etc

💥New WP: Hate Trumps Love💥
RQ: study behavioral-, belief- & norm-based mechanisms through which perceptions of closeness, altruism & cooperativeness are affected by political polarization under @realDonaldTrump

Findings: it’s grim

Short thread👇 Image

Rising political polarization is often linked to fractured societies rife with racial inequality, factional conflict & partisan animosity.

In the U.S., many issues yield a surprising partisan divide, think mask wearing (see also recent paper by @spbhanot & @dhopkins1776)

In multiple pre-registered *behavioral* experiments, I study the perceptional & behavioral consequences of polarization.

In particular, I examine the behavioral-, belief-, and norm-based mechanisms with which this political intergroup conflict materializes.

2/5: " more benign social environments w/ simple, targeted taxes & subsidies, calibrated to amplify contagion effects, rather than w/ complex, intrusive regulation," we'll have to look at integrating such measures w/in a multi-level selection evolutionary framework.

I found in the archives this Times (UK) 31 July 2006 profile of the late Senator John McCain and his most admirable family of serving sailors and Marines. Note this incredible statistic of dynastic political corruption, which one suspects only got worse since 2006
My google search for this piece also produced this *August 2008* story re Hunter Biden’s ‘entrepreneurial’ activities amid his father’s lawmaking office holding....I am sure this was all above board as well.…
Will simply say, again, that when Caesar marched on Rome, a good century of dynastic political corruption and plundering of the Republic’s offices meant that Caesar, even with his legions, was always pushing at an open door, due to popular disgust with the status quo

🚨New WP (theory + experiment): lying & belief distortion under norm-uncertainty🚨
w/ @cbicchieri (@Penn) & Sonderegger (@CeDEx)

RQ: how do we engage in deviant behavior when social #norms are uncertain?
A: self-serving belief distortion

Thread ⬇

#Lies are ubiquitous & people often lie for their own benefit or for others (@UriGneezy et al., 2018 AER, Abeler et al., 2019 Ecta)
◈ Reasons (not) to lie: ethical dissonance, image concerns...

--> we take a complementary approach: norm-following considerations

Existing scientific approach to the study of norms:
◈ Clearly define norms and study how individuals react (tradition of @RobertCialdini, @CBicchieri, Fehr & others)
◈ Find: social norms motivate and affect personal decisions, even when they are not in our own self-interest
