Everyone hates environmentalists and feminists
Don't look at me like that. This is SCIENCE! [Image: 5propeller.gif]

Study: Everyone hates environmentalists and feminists
Salon

Quote:Why don’t people behave in more environmentally friendly ways? New research presents one uncomfortable answer: They don’t want to be associated with environmentalists.

That’s the conclusion of troubling new research from Canada, which similarly finds support for feminist goals is hampered by a dislike of feminists.

Participants held strongly negative stereotypes about such activists, and those feelings reduced their willingness “to adopt the behaviors that these activities promoted,” reports a research team led by University of Toronto psychologist Nadia Bashir. This surprisingly cruel caricaturing, the researchers conclude, plays “a key role in creating resistance to social change.”

Nonsense is nonsense, but the history of nonsense is a very important science.

There's also a reason deliberate punching men barefisted in the face in hockey matches isn't going away.

The connection... The opinions of Canadians

RE: Everyone hates environmentalists and feminists
Well, yeah. There do seem to be some negative emotions around both environmentalist and feminists. I've been called a tree hugging hippie many times but generally by people who aren't trying to be mean and do not mean it in a derogatory way (though they may find it slightly annoying). I don't know why being a tree hugger is a bad thing. I'm look at this research further after dinner. Part of my goal in my graduate program is to encourage others to engage in more sustainable behavior. I'm doing a 3 part until with 5-8 year children on animal conservation in October. Apparently I do not want to come across as a "typical" environmentalist.

Dena,
Check out the COBIT Implementation model and (I'll bet you know this already) John Kotter's 8-step stuff on organisational change.

Resistance to change is a well known phenomenon and has to do with moderate vs. extremes (bell curve).

No, support for the feminist goals is mostly hampered by the fact that people understand that feminists real goals are far from their proclaimed goals, or by people disapproving of methods proposed by feminists for achieving certain goals.

Feminists are all 100% crazy lesbian bitches. Fact.
Environmentalists are all 100% crazy lesbian bitches who don't shave under their arms. Fact.

That's why people don't like them.
