There are a lot of reasons sociologists go on and on about how so many things are social constructions. It's important because if those before us constructed something harmful (and they did), we can deconstruct and reconstruct it. #socialized
What Is Socialization All About? ow.ly/RYAJ30mxKWn #socialized
Socialization keeps us alive, helps us work together - but it can also train us to be complicit in oppression and/or internalize the lies of oppression. #socialized
Here are some examples: 11 Things That Are Social Constructs ow.ly/OW9w30mxL7u #socialized
So many things we have come to accept as facts are really more like socially constructed notions. For example ... The Social Construction of the Continents - Sociological Images ow.ly/T42h30mxNfP #Socialized
Humans have nipples. That's a fact. What they mean ... now that's something else -> The nipple - Sociology Toolbox ow.ly/V5YQ30mxNod #socialized
Think about the agents of socialization in your life, in the lives of others. Then think about choosing who will influence u, rather than just accepting what u have been conditioned to believe: Agents of socialization (video) | Khan Academy ow.ly/IWWw30mxNtS #socialized
What We Mean When We Say ‘Race Is a Social Construct’ - The Atlantic ow.ly/Psa130mxNEt #socialized
I've got some resources about socialization and social constructs on this Pinterest board; I will keep adding items: pin.it/cd3e24vg6ntrrm #socialized
I will add #SoJustChange to the #SoJustHashtags collection and start working on gathering resources to discuss how change happens in ways that cause a social movement - see #SoJustTactics and #SoJustProtest for methods
Here's the new Pinterest board for #SoJustChange about how to make change happen / social movement info -> pin.it/ontyy56j664su3 - Visit #SoJustSystemic to explore the way oppression works systematically thru social structures and institutions
U can find resources about systemic oppression in the #SoJustSystemic Pinterest board - and at the hashtag of course pin.it/c5f2ngt62wwrsg
See how these ^^^ #SoJustHashtags work together to create conversations about complex topics? #nerdlove
