APA Pushing Deviant Morals: American Psychological Association Launches Open Marriages Task Force

From: World Affairs Brief 7/12/19 by Joel Skousen

APA at the Forefront Pushing Deviant Morals: The American Psychological Association (APA) is revising its standards on everything from pedophilia to monogamy and trying to make the case that monogamy is the new bigotry—that open marriages and even a person’s predilection to have sex with young children is not necessarily evil, but should be given more tolerance. According to the official declaration, “the ability to engage in desired intimacy [of any type] without social and medical stigmatization is not a liberty for all.” In other words, we should tolerate everything.

APA: We’d Like to Teach the World to Swing…

July 08, 2019

Just when you think you’ve heard it all, the American Psychological Association (APA) decides this: Monogamy is the new bigotry. That’s right. According to the supposed “mental health experts,” open marriages are the tolerant approach to intimacy. And they’ve launched a task force to prove it to the world.

STUDY: Women leaving STEM due to depression, unhappiness

Jul 26, 2018

A new study has discovered that depression, rather than sexism or discrimination, is driving women’s desire to leave STEM fields.

“In terms of reported work engagement, depression, perfectionistic discrepancy, and stigma consciousness were significant negative predictors, while having perfectionistic high standards positively predicted work engagement,” the abstract reports, adding that “for work engagement, lack of comparable pay was a nonsignificant predictor.”

The study led by Department of Veteran Affairs Researcher Erin Reilly, “The Relationship Among Stigma, Consciousness, Perfectionism, and Mental Health in Retaining Women in STEM,” was published in the newest issue of the Journal of Career Development.

The work sought to shed light on the mass exodus of women from STEM. As Reilly and her team note, previous research has shown that 52 percent of women leave STEM mid-career to stay at home or to join other fields.

“[I]n the [United States] alone, approximately 3,000 PhD-trained women leaving science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) result in an economic loss of US$1.5 billion per year,” the researchers note. …

Though the researchers acknowledge that they could not clinically diagnose any interviewees with depression, respondents were asked whether they “felt nervous, felt so down nothing could cheer them up…[or] felt downhearted and blue” during the preceding month.

After analysing the data, researchers concluded that “women with higher levels of depression and perfectionistic discrepancy reported greater levels of intent to leave their current job,” adding that “depression was a consistent predictor of job outcome variables.” …

A recent study by Colorado School of Mines professor Greg Rulifson tracked 21 female students who started out as STEM majors in college, finding that one-third left STEM to major in fields that involve more “social responsibility.”

“Women in engineering are more motivated by helping others, and engineering education needs to provide more examples of engineering as a helping profession,” Rulifson recommended. …

I transcribed these important, politically incorrect words, starting at 7:10:

Men’s and women’s roles are completely equal in importance, and should be valued and respected as such. In our demented modern world, ‘equality’ has come to mean that women should want to be engineers or soldiers, and that men should want to stay at home and look after the kids or become nurses. But even when they choose to have careers, women make very different choices to men, which befit their natural inclinations and talents. The fact is that no matter how much social engineering the left tries, it can’t make engineers out of women in any significant number.

When women do try to enter STEM fields [science, tech, engineering & math], for example, they often find they are simply unsuited to these ways of thinking. They get depressed and frustrated. …

..voting patterns between the sexes are remarkably consistent. If only men voted, we would likely never have a social/democratic government ever again. And if only women voted, goodbye nationalism forever. It is no coincidence that nationalism is dominated by men, and that women play a much bigger role in open borders movements like the Green Party.

These voting patterns reflect the natural roles the sexes play. Men are more cautious, and given to the protection of the tribe and the borders of the country, while women favor the more trusting and open approach to people.

The left wants us to equality with sameness, but this is deranged. … I’m talking about ending the creepy, politically correct obsession that there can be no differences between the sexes. … I’m talking about allowing the sexes to be themselves, to abandon the idea that men should be more feminine and that masculinity is toxic.

This is quite literally a matter of our nation’s life or death.”

I would say that in general, women are more subjective, and men are more objective (“not influenced by personal feelings or opinions in considering and representing facts”).

Study: IQ Scores Are Falling Rapidly – Seven Points per Generation!

They’re not mentioning the effects of vaccines, less healthy food, cellphone and cell tower radiation, being nursed on soy milk instead of mother’s milk, etc..
– –

The Flynn effect – named after the work of Kiwi intelligence researcher James Flynn – observed rapid rises in intelligence quotient at a rate of about 3 IQ points per decade in the 20th century, but new research suggests these heady boom days are long gone.

An analysis of some 730,000 IQ test results by researchers from the Ragnar Frisch Centre for Economic Research in Norway reveals the Flynn effect hit its peak for people born during the mid-1970s, and has significantly declined ever since.

“This is the most convincing evidence yet of a reversal of the Flynn effect,” psychologist Stuart Ritchie from the University of Edinburgh, who was not involved in the study, told The Times. …

What the results show is that a turning point for the Flynn effect occurred for the post-1975 birth cohorts, equivalent to 7 fewer IQ score points per generation.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen this kind of dip. Research by Flynn himself that looked at the IQs of British teenagers almost a decade ago observed a similar fall in test scores. …

In the new study, the researchers observed IQ drops occurring within actual families, between brothers and sons – meaning the effect likely isn’t due to shifting demographic factors as some have suggested, such as the dysgenic accumulation of disadvantageous genes across areas of society.

Instead, it suggests changes in lifestyle could be what’s behind these lower IQs, perhaps due to the way children are educated, the way they’re brought up, and the things they spend time doing more and less (the types of play they engage in, whether they read books, and so on).

2011 STUDY: Abortion tied to sharp decline in women's mental health

A provocative new study shows that women who have an abortion face an increased risk for mental health problems including substance abuse, anxiety, and depression.
“Results indicate quite consistently that abortion is associated with moderate to highly increased risks of psychological problems subsequent to the procedure,” the authors wrote in the study, published in the September 1 issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry.
For the study, researchers analyzed data on 877,000 women, including 164,000 who had an abortion. They found women who had an abortion experienced an 81 percent increased risk for mental problems.
Women who had an abortion were 34 percent more likely to develop an anxiety disorder, 37 percent more likely to experience depression, 110 percent more likely to abuse alcohol, 155 percent more likely to commit suicide, and 220 percent more likely to use marijuana.

(Studies) Internet pornography akin to cocaine – A chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuits — Brain atrophy – less connectivity between the right caudate and left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, the seat of executive functions

Internet pornography—akin to cocaine
A chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuits.
Nicole M. King and Bryce J. Christensen | May 8 2018
The progressives who brought the world the sexual revolution assure one and all that that Internet pornography poses no threat to social or personal well-being; indeed, they argue that Internet pornography deserves the same legal protections afforded expressions of political opinion. But the progressive view on pornography appears ever less credible as evidence accrues showing that addiction to Internet pornography looks very like addiction to cocaine and carries consequences that may prove just as harmful for individuals and families.
