Litemind Microaggressions: More than Just Race In a previous blog (Microaggressions in Everyday Life), I indicated that most well-intentioned White Americans have inherited the racial biases of their forebears; that the most harmful forms remain outside the level of conscious awareness; and that making the "invisible, visible" is the first step to overcoming hidden prejudices. Since that posting, many readers have asked me whether microaggressions can be directed at women, lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgendered (LGBT) persons, or those with disabilities.

EyeWire Creativity Cards Rape Culture in Popular Culture - Shameless Magazine - your daily dose of fresh feminism for girls and trans youth In the Blog Let’s start out with a few basic facts: Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a dreamboat. Like, on a scale of one to super-ultimate-double-plus-dreamboat, he is pretty high up there. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is reaching unprecedented break-my-marriage-vows levels of attractiveness. I would pay good money to watch a movie that was nothing but Joseph Gordon-Levitt sitting on a chair reading the phone book. Not convinced? And Exhibit B: [YouTube video of Joseph Gordon-Levitt singing a cover of Nirvana’s “Lithium.” Are you done swooning yet? It’s fine, I’ll give you another minute. Shhhh, I know. All right, are we good? Now, given the fact that I’ve just used science to prove that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is maybe one of the best things since sliced bread, what I’m about to say next might shock you: Not every heterosexual woman wants to date him. For example, the film (500) Days of Summer centres around the fact that Zooey Deschanel is not interested in dating Joseph Gordon-Levitt. That is rape culture.

Creative Techniques This A to Z of Creativity and Innovation Techniques, provides an introduction to a range of tools and techniques for both idea generation (Creativity) and converting those ideas into reality (Innovation). Like most tools these techniques all have their good and bad points. I like to think of these creativity and innovation techniques as tools in a toolbox in much the same way as my toolbox at home for DIY. It has a saw, spanner, hammer, knife and all sorts of other things in it, they are all very useful, but you have to pick the right tool (creativity / Innovation technique) for each job. For the future, the aim is to also have sub-categories which will identify Techniques for; Problem Definition - including problem analysis, redifinition, and all aspects associated with defining the problem clearly. Special thanks to the Open University for their kind permission to use material from their publication B822. Subcategories This category has the following 5 subcategories, out of 5 total.
