Thread: Over Half of Liberal White Women Mentally Ill

  1. #31
    Does this prove they're insane, or just that they're self-absorbed attention whores who think the world owes them a $200/hour licensed "expert" to listen to them whine?

    Then again, maybe that's the same thing...

    I'll just repeat my previous response:

    Whether or to what extent psychiatry is actually just a bunch of hoodoo gussied up as "science" is an issue about which volumes could be written.

    Science requires rigorous definitions and objectively reproducible measurements. These are things in which the field of psychiatry is severely deficient.

    But for the sake of what follows, let us assume that psychiatry is not just another instance of overweening scientism.

    Did the study account for how likely members of the various groups (liberal, conservative, male, female, young, old, etc.) were to seek psychiatric diagnoses in the first place?

    For example, is it the case that young liberal white women are, for whatever reasons, more likely to seek psychiatric diagnoses? If so, then it can hardly be surprising, let alone considered meaningful, if they end up getting more positive diagnoses. Also, it is difficult to see how this could be corrected for, since any such correction would have to correctly estimate and account for the number of undiagnosed respondents - along each of at least four axes, no less (liberal vs. conservative, male vs. female, young vs. old, race vs. other race) - who would have received a positive result had they sought a diagnosis (i.e., such a correction would, in effect, have to attempt to diagnose the undiagnosed with some reasonable degree of accuracy).

    Did the study account for how likely members of the various groups were to accurately self-report any diagnoses they had received?

    For example, apart from the question of whether old conservative men are more or less likely than young liberal women to seek a psychiatric diagnoses in the first place, how likely are members of each group to accurately report positive results? How likely are old conservative men to misrepresent having received a positive diagnosis (or any diagnosis at all)? How likely are young liberal women to misrepresent not having received a positive diagnosis (or any diagnosis at all)? Recall that at the height of the AIDS epidemic, there were gay men attending support groups for those who did not have the disease because they were feeling "left out" of being part of something "special." Might something broadly similar be involved here? If so, to what degree? The upshot of all this is that studies that hinge on self-reporting are always and automatically at least somewhat suspect, at absolute best.

    And these are just two questions of many that lead to skepticism concerning the validity of such "studies."

    One doesn't need to resort to psychiatric scientism in order to know that many on the left have gone cray-cray ...

    Or? Why not both? (The former could even be caused by the latter.)

    The worst supervisor that I had worked was a Bernie Sanders supporter. He was the most greedy two faced person you could ever meet. In private he would ridicule disabled people.However, he would always preach about social justice in public, especially around people in power such as upper management.

    It bears repeating.

    If the stampman tells you to kiss his ass, shall he get away with it and live? Don't let your courage cool, or a few bullies scare you. We've nothing to fear but slavery. Love your liberty, and fight for it like men who know its value. Once lost it will never, never be regained.
