The Behavioral Ecology of Male Violence
My argument here is that homicide and warfare are very much ‘natural’ behaviors, often tied to male fitness interests; however, such behaviors are sensitive to socioecological cues, and their prevalence can vary significantly across and within societies. Even among chimpanzees, we see significant variation in rates of lethal violence between different communities, even for those located near each other.

An important strength of the behavioral ecology approach to understanding human behavior is that it goes beyond more narrow ideas rooted in genetic determinism or social constructionism. Violence is not ‘innate’ in the sense of being predictably and rigidly determined by genes alone, nor is it the arbitrary result of socialization or cultural learning. Yet violence is nonetheless rooted in human biology, particularly in sex differences between males and females, and the prevalence of violence can vary substantially across and within cultures due to socioecological factors.

In understanding the cross-cultural trends, as well as accounting for the variation, we can better understand both why males everywhere are, on average, more violent than females, as well as how best to reduce the prevalence of violence within our own societies.

Gegen pseudofeministsche Filmkritik & Frauenquote auf der Leinwand
Als der Actionfilm "Criminal Squad" in die Kinos kam, überschlugen sich viele Filmkritiker mit Verrissen, besonders gegen den Strich ging ihnen dabei, daß in dem Film kaum Frauen vorkommen und daß die Männerfiguren (einer Verbrecherbande und eines Sondereinsatzkommandos) groß, stark und brutal sind und sie sich in ihrer Freizeit vermutlich nicht mit Gender-Theorien beschäftigen. Heute breitet sich eine denkfaule Filmkritik aus, die nur noch durchzählt, wie viele Männer und Frauen auf der Leinwand vorkommen - danach wird dann die Qualität eines Films bemessen. Das ist fatal. Wolfgang M. Schmitt jun. über die eigentliche Kraft des Films.

Forum 34 | Sara Ahmed | Complaint: Diversity Work, Feminism, and Institutions - YouTube
"This lecture will draw on interviews with students and staff who have made (or have considered making) complaints about abuses of power within universities. It will show how feminist complaint can be a form of diversity work: as the work you would have to do before some populations can be included within institutions. We learn about the institutional “as usual” from those who are trying to transform institutions. Finally, the lecture will discuss how identifying and challenging abuses of power teaches us about
the mechanics of power."

How to Hate Fur Without Hating Women
This reaction to women’s exploitation of animals is common, and it is something I have been unpacking. It clicked and made sense when I read Brutal by Brian Luke. “Feminine gender roles typically include an expectation of responsiveness to the needs of others, while masculine gender roles often include an expectation of a willingness to override or disregard [their] sympathies for others”. In other words, we accept, or expect, cruelty from men, while holding women to much higher moral standards. From women we expect nurture, sensitivity and (motherly) care. Seeing a woman driving a truck of chickens to their deaths challenges something fundamental to our constructions of femininity and what it is to be a woman.

What Is Post-Cyberfeminism? Here’s a Primer on the Latest Big Idea to Storm Contemporary Art
“Now we know more about the downsides of networked technologies; we had to learn how they are being abused by corporate and governmental interests in order to surveil and control users and citizens,” Sollfrank said. “This situation continuously needs to be confronted with feminist methodologies of analyzing power structures and one’s own potential and agency within.”

Shock! Jennifer Lawrence's dress is not a symbol of all feminism | Opinion | The Guardian
One of the most pleasing things of recent years is the resurgent profile of feminism in the mainstream. But what’s been lost somewhat is that There isn’t One Type of Feminism, and just because intra-debate occurs, doesn’t mean that everything starts collapsing, like a huge chunk of iceberg falling off into the sea.
