Robert Sapolsky about his study of the Keekorok baboon troop from National Geographic’s Stress: Portrait of a Killer.
Thiiiiiiis, people, thiiiis!
1. Kill alpha male types
2. Achieve world peace
I’ve actually read a lot of Sapolsky’s work. He’s one of my favorite scientists in the neuro/socio world.
I just watched the documentary and there is so much more about the troop that isn’t in this photoset—not only does the troop have a culture of little aggression and greater cooperation, but any incoming jerk baboons learned within a few months that their shitty behaviour was in no way acceptable, that the troop only rewarded sociability, and they changed accordingly.
If effin’ baboons can learn this there’s pretty much no reason to believe that our only option in dealing with assholes is to just ignore their behaviour and let it continue.
there really is no excuse.
"incoming jerk baboons" hahaha
Dear Diary, there are two things you should know about me: I’m still fat… and I’m still mad.
Power Structure of Oppression
Yes. Yes. YES.
I’m just gonna leave this here, in case anyone thought their fee fees were more important than systematic oppression
I will honestly reblog this every time it comes across my dash. It is so important.
important note: saying “it’s just a joke calm down” means nothing because jokes are still oppressive
“this leaves men confused and unable to pigeonhole you. What they are forced to do instead is… take you seriously.”
Reblog every time
Whoever wrote this dialogue is a freakin’ genius
