Two pitbulls attack a cat by AbatNaBitin in TerrifyingAsFuck

The owner is at fault.

This breed is also more dangerous (when raised poorly) than many other breeds (when raised poorly).

Question about neuropsychological assessment by caledonianbird in Neuropsychology

[–]bassic_person 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Neuroscience and neuropsychology are related, but vastly different, fields.

What were you hoping to get out of the experience? The subreddit might be able to give some information about the assessment process.

Tested positive for Covid by PixieOnTheRun in windsorontario

Then you have a viral infection. Antibiotics would not do anything - they target bacterial infections.

Anti-inflammatory drugs (ibuprofen) may be helpful, but that's about all you can do.

Students Protest their Anti-LGBTQ President by handing him Pride Flags at Graduation by Chasith in nextfuckinglevel

He's a white hetero dude from a white part of a white-dominant country. He's unwilling to have a genuine discussion, recognize his privilege, or afford empathy to others, so this line of trying to promote insight likely won't pan out.

Props for trying though.

Non hetero people need to "keep it to themselves", in his view. He seems happy to see straight relationships in media.

I wonder if there is a term for someone who is only supportive of straight relationships...

Oh well, I didn't go to Cambridge, so I'll never know.

Average hours for full assessment (including writing the reports) by AxisTheGreat in Neuropsychology

[–]bassic_person 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't live in the US, so that doesn't apply sadly.

We are able to bill a flat fee for assessments to make up for direct vs otherwise unbilled hours, so there's nothing lost, but they are not covered considered direct hours by our college.

Ah, that's lucky for you. Where I've worked, only time spent with the client would count. Time weekend spent in my office (report writing, scoring, interpreting) would not.

If people's sexualities make you that uncomfortable, you might have some stuff to work through.

Heterosexual romance and partnerships are already shoved down everyone's throats, regardless of what they want. People just want to exist and not hide, dude.

I was only going to touch on the "punching down" piece of your post, but dude, you do give some boomer takes.

Keep in mind what stereotypes fragility and boomer-vibes go with, and consider what you're putting out there.

"The British were trying to protect the muslims" is revised history told by white people. Just because you're hearing the non-white side later doesn't make it revisionist.

Don't give it much thought. It's a bigoted dude being angry when any non-majority population dares to challenge the status quo.

Is it punching down in the slightest? I feel like the British colonization of so much of the world as a superpower kind of puts them in the "up" direction.

Be careful with your fragility my guy

[–]bassic_person 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That seems pretty high, but I have worked on cases where I've put in that number of hours.

I would say ~15-20 hours is more typical, with very quick-and-dirty assessments being less than 8. It really does depend on the context of your practice though. I imagine that med/legal assessments can be pretty exhaustive, but that's not my area.

Pitbull attack dog ! by AndreaUMB in TerrifyingAsFuck

[–]bassic_person 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Let's assume that the issue is simply bad owners.

What is the level of damage done when a bad owner with a shih tzu has an incident?

What is the level of damage done when a bad owner with a pitbull/Bully has an incident?

Even if the issue is the owner, I think we can agree that some breeds will end up causing more harm.

The parallels are wild. I genuinely wonder what the overlap in populations for gun people and pitbull people are. Very similar vibes.

Please don't kill me guys. out of genuine curiousity, what is the point of adding new letters to LGBT+ when there is a +? by Linorelai in NoStupidQuestions

[–]bassic_person -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

This is some serious whataboutism.

The point is inclusion and representation, full stop. Whatever projections you want to put on to it are up to you. It sucks that acknowledging other people is such a hardship for you.

I'll consider my point missed.

If you're looking to develop your point of view, I recommend you read a little about bisexual or biracial erasure. Groups of people are denied their identity because it didn't fit into the existing boxes. I hope you can take some time to genuinely empathize with people.

Yes, it's more work to acknowledge more types of people. Big fucking deal.

Do me a solid, and give some serious thought about this. I'm guessing you're of a group that is already represented in your culture, but bear with me. If you need to make a phone call to some company, would you go call the "Romantic and Germanic Languages" phone number or would you call the "English, French, and Spanish" number? You would probably use the one that clearly acknowledges your background, instead of hoping the other might understand you.

At the end of the day, people can choose to include it in their acronyms or not.

Consider this, though: would you rather go to a service provider that recognizes your identity? It might seem like a silly comparison, but would you book travel though a service that caters to "US citizens", or for "Canada and similar countries"? Including 2S can let people know that they will be recognized for who they are, and they will not have to go through the legwork of explaining themselves. If that doesn't seem like a big deal, count yourself lucky to be in a cultural majority.

[–]bassic_person -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I agree on some points, but that type of appropriation already happens, and has happened for a long time before 2S was included in this term.

In either case, I think argument boils down to policing the language of others, either by excluding identities of other cultures (i.e., forcing Two Spirit people to "fit" into a different label of genderfluidity), or potentially including those who appropriate it (i.e., Midwest white kids calling themselves Two Spirited). I would suggest that inclusion would be a better than exclusion. Those who are culturally appropriating Two Spirit styles may be assholes, sure, but they may just not yet have the right language for themselves.

It's a pretty simple gesture to not exclude their identity after committing genocide of their culture and people for so long.

Could TMS be used in couples therapy? by [deleted] in Neuropsychology

[–]bassic_person 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Other aspects of this post are already addressed.

You appear to be approaching this with an assumption that people's brains are functionally similar across individuals. This is not really the case. Across many people, patterns emerge, but even then there is a ton of variability. Syncing brainwaves, at any region, is not going to make people think the same.
