The Nordic Council of Ministers (a regional inter-governmental co-operation consisting of Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland) has decided to close down the NIKK Nordic Gender Institute. The NIKK had been the flagship of “Gender Theory”, providing the “scientific” basis for social and educational policies that, from the 1970s onward, had transformed the Nordic countries to become the most “gender sensitive” societies in the world.

The decision was made after the Norwegian State Television had broadcasted a television documentary called “Hjernevask” (the Norwegian word for “brainwash”) in which comedian Harald Eia exposed the hopelessly unscientific character of the NIKK.

Part 1 – ”The Gender Equality Paradox"

Part 2 – ”The Parental Effect”

Part 3 – ”Gay/straight”

Part 4 – ”Violence”

Part 5 – ”Sex”

Part 6 – ”Race” (password: hjernevask)

Part 7 – ”Nature or Nurture”

Tl;dr: Comedian completely destroys every claim by the gender studies institute with proof from actual scientists, biologists, psychologists etc. to the point where the state shuts it down.

This is possibly the greatest media presentation on gender issues I've ever seen. If you can only watch one of them, I think it should be the first part. When he shows the British professor the video of the sociologists completely dismissing the science out of hand, her reaction is priceless. She then gives an amazingly insightful comment about biology influencing our behaviors.

Honestly I think this video is one of the biggest testaments to TRP. Not only does it prove the differences between men and women that we have been stressing, but it also shows "scientists" (male and female) hamstering despite strong evidence otherwise. I also was fascinated by the idea that true equality creates inequality. This video pumped me up, and made me proud to be a red piller. I would recommend it to anyone new to this. I'm really curious to see what labels the general reddit folk would fling around after seeing this powerful video.

9 upvotesSexualStrategist6 years ago

true equality creates inequality

So true. This statement applies not only to men and women, but to all social issues and economic issues. The more society tries to create "equality", the more it creates a system where one person or group of persons benefits at the expense of another person or group of persons.

Yeah...

You know I find it amusing in that first video that the woman representing gender studies was always on her heels when he was asking the tough questions. The man representing gender studies was fairly articulate even though he was still being proven wrong.

Of course the ones championing biology and/or social conditioning together were the most articulate and believable because they actually had evidence and experience to back it up.

The problem is that the brain is so complex that we've barely scratched the surface in figuring out how it works. The opponents of the biological influence want to see definitive understood differences in the brain before they will even consider the idea that biology is at play here. Unfortunately the best that can be done right now is testing of the brain from the outside. Put the brain in situations and see how it reacts. The opponents of biological influences just dismiss such studies completely, which I think is crazy. That just means that there is low certainty about things.

Here is one question I have. Can science currently tell the difference between the brains of people with one type of personality vs another personality? We know it has to exist since brains don't just act in a consistently unique manner because of randomness. If we don't have that capability then why are the opponents of biological influence requiring that brain differences be detected before they will put any weight on the other experiments. If they can find the difference in the brain then we can assume, based off of the fact that adult males and females exhibit different personalities, that they also have different brains. Why aren't the opponents of biological influence then trying to prove their hypothesis by examining how those differences develop, and what proof do they have that the differences aren't biologically driven?

The only thing that I've ever heard of is connectivity and region size comparisons. Both sides continuously claim the other sides studies are bunk, and I'm not motivated enough in this topic to make this subject a big part of my life. Basically I'm staying out of it.

Either way, as I said before, size differences and large scale connectivity patterns only scratch the surface of how the brain works. There are many personality traits that are consistently exhibited by certain individuals and these behaviors somehow have basis in the brain. Until we're at the level where we can analyze the brain in a much more complex and involved manner trying to pinpoint many behaviors to the structure of the brain is a dream. Much of the brain right now can only be analyzed by looking at the behaviors produced. Trying to say that there definitely is no biological difference between groups because you can't figure out where the difference is in the brain is ridiculous. First of all, unless someone is going to claim that our behaviors originate from outside of our body, we know the differences are there. There shouldn't even be a question about if there are physical differences. They're there. The real question is if those physical differences that lead to our different behavior are things that we're born with or if they're things that we develop after we're born in response to external stimuli. The key part being, in response to external stimuli.

You've totally gotten involved. Everything you see in your daily life suggests that men and women act differently. Every piece of history you've ever read or heard of has shown gender roles exactly like the ones we have today.

If you don't come to any conclusions, it is the very definition of being unwilling to think about the issue. You could have just watched the documentaries instead of spending your time writing large comments and being the equivalent of an agnostic for the feminist religion.

6 upvotesjacobman6 years ago

I had already watched two of the documentaries when I made the comments. Unfortunately I have a life so I couldn't spend my whole day watching them all. Also, I didn't say I don't have opinions. I'm just not going to go way out of my way to become an expert in the research in the area. Therefore I'm going to stay out of the debate about what research is weak and what research has been refuted, which is what both sides seem to always claim about the other.

9 upvotesbam2_896 years ago

Social Science is largely a misnomer. Don't get me wrong, there are serious and highly qualified researchers involved in those fields, but for the most part, it lacks the defining trait of a scientific question: falsifiability. In actual science, there is always something that if introduced or discredited would falsify the assertion. For example: a human fossil in the Jurassic Period would totally derail evolution, but that hasn't happened. For these fools posing as scientists, there is nothing that would disprove the principles behind their SJW agenda. It's not science. Full stop. Even worse, it's pseudoscience.

I watched this with my best friend, who later made the mistake of arguing/re-watching it with his extremely (annoying) feminist girlfriend. Her response was basically the same from the start.

"No, that's wrong." When pressed for what was wrong, she was unable to answer other than saying "This is made by people who HATE women." When asked, even if that's so, what's wrong with their logic, she finally went full on yelling and asked why he was attacking her.

It's telling that a critique of Scandinavian Gender Studies is a personal attack on her in her mind. Any comment about women is a comment directly about her. Solipsism is powerful.

17 upvotesbunker_man6 years ago

How is it that all these otherwise seemingly sane people always end up with these radical SOs? Are they so desperate they'll take anything? For me it was fairly reasonable to just sort through and be patient until I found someone good who was not this insane.

19 upvotesBarbarianRedScourge6 years ago

If you really want a long response: he was raised mostly by a single mother who was so insane and controlling she really did a number on him. His dad, who was around at least but did not have full custody, was a total betamax despite looking more than a little like Sting.

I'll give you a super brief example of his mother's behavior: once he washed his hands in a theater bathroom and was freaking out because he was headed home right after that. The soap was very floral scented, and he worried that she would think he was doing drugs when she smelled his hands. I stopped him, "smells your hands? Why would she be able to smell your hands?!" He told me that she does that to see if he's been doing "things he shouldn't." Which probably meant more than he realized at the time, and grosses me out now.

So he's always had a preference for girls who direct the relationship. This one is probably the worst in the feminism department. She works for an non-profit and is very wealthy. She comes from a household with an extremely beta father. And she has no grip on what reality looks like. If they didn't spoon feed it to her in college, she isn't interested.

(Aside: she and I have had the women vs men earning rate argument, only because I wanted to rile her. She couldn't accept those numbers either, and we pulled them directly from the BLS.)

So that's your answer. He is with a girl who is roughly as controlling as his mother, just in different ways. He's seen my success with women over the last few years, and listens to me to some extent, so he isn't totally averse to the red pill ideals. But he constantly says "I don't want to do it that way." So he gets what he gets. I'm hoping this one is crazy enough to make him reconsider.

Yeah I dated extensively usually multiple women at a time until I figured out what it was I wanted. Most just date until they find something shiny and then keep it because it's shiny.

You have to be first aware that there is something you are looking for. Most people are not that self aware, they want looks and basic chemistry. That shit fades, you need actual compatibility. I looked specifically for a woman that had what I then called 30's housewife ideals. Found her and while some minor issues we are a great husband and wife as well as father and mother. Not a married couple with kids, that is modern era bullshit. Husband and Wife as well as Father and Mother.

That's the point. They legitimately see things as a one dimensional line of where females are relative to males. You're either closing the gap... or you're not. And if you're not, you're part of the problem. Even trying to dismantle ways females have it better for the sake of equality in all areas is anathema to them since they see that as widening the gap.

Oh, I promise you, when you understand the language (Norwegian here), their frantic stuttering and inability to argue reasonably is absolutely astonishing. It's just as bad as it looks. The only argument they have is that they don't understand why anyone would want to investigate biological differences. Damn, what a waste of government money.

Edit: I just want to add, I don't know if it shines through in the translation, but the woman in the video is eff-ing scary. She looks like one of those feminists that could explode into a screaming inferno at a bar or something.

Effectively, she is saying that her theory of gender equality does not permit any other answer, and therefore gender equality is true. This is a logical fallacy called "begging the question". I wonder what kind of pretend college gave her a degree.

The guy who refuses to accept any of the other studies has a more sophisticated answer; he wants to see the "exact way" in which biology affects gender choices, and in the meantime his gender equality ideas must be true. I'd say he is like someone who refuses to believe that physics is worth studying because it is only a bunch of theories. "F=ma has only been proven to 15 decimal places? Come back to me when you know EXACTLY." (Not that I'm putting forward a strawman here... Speaking of fallacious arguments...)

As someone who became an atheist in rural USA, I was surprised to see the gender theorists resort to the same basic arguments as religious fundamentalists. The comedian shows one of the gender theorists stone cold evidence, such as gender differences in one day old babies or gender differences across time. The gender theorists response was that no amount of "weak" evidence could ever "prove" biological hypothesis, so he would remain a good scientist by adopting an anti-biological perspective.

This sounds remarkably similar to denying the validity of evolution because not all past animals are accounted for in the fossil record. Also, just as religious fundamentalists will translate "you can't prove god doesn't exist" to "I'm going to continue to say god exists", the gender theorists translate, "You can't prove that babies don't receive some gender information from society" to "I'm going to say society dictates the gender of babies".

Fundamentalists of both groups respond to any rational skepticism by immediately attacking the motives of anyone questioning their religions. In this case, we see the immediate response of gender theorists to actual medical research is to ask, "Isn't it strange how frenetic these people are to show a biological impact?"

It's unfortunate the many people in the United States will rebel against their closed minded religious parents by going to university and immediately joining the "post-modernist" religion. These people never get a chance to see the world without constant brainwashing.

It meshes well with their jante's law culture. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jante_Law

13 upvotesautowikibot6 years ago

Here's a bit from linked Wikipedia article about Jante Law :


The Law of Jante (Danish: Janteloven (Danish pronunciation: [ˈja̝nd̥əˌlo̞ʋˀən]); Norwegian: Jantelova or Janteloven; Swedish: Jantelagen (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈjantɛˌlɑːɡɛn])) is the idea that there is a pattern of group behaviour towards individuals within Scandinavian communities that negatively portrays and criticises individual success and achievement as unworthy and inappropriate. The Jante Law as a concept was created by the Dano-Norwegian author Aksel Sandemose. In his novel A fugitive crosses his tracks (En flyktning krysser sitt spor, 1933, English translation published in the USA in 1936) identified the Law of Jante as ten rules. Sandemose's novel portrays the small Danish town Jante (modelled upon his native town Nykøbing Mors as it was at the beginning of the 20th century, but typical of all small towns and communities), where nobody is anonymous.

It's hard to get in the mind of a low IQ person. They have very short time horizons so it's hard for them to figure out what will happen to them when they do a certain action.

You're right in that sense, people who are really really dumb make really really bad decisions that screw up their lives. My problem is that I have such a high IQ that average people seem dumb to me, maybe that's my problem.

But it seems to me there's a common misconception in society equating intelligence to wealth and unintelligence to poverty. I've met many people with far lower IQs than me who have far larger bank accounts (that they earned themselves) than I do. I've also met people far smarter than me who are also much poorer than me.

IDK, I think we're both right.

No, and most things said about Scandinavia in this thread is extreme hyperbole. I mean, there are men importing Thai women but it's rare enough to be "my uncle's weird childhood friend". I've lived in Sweden for some years and sure, sometimes feminism here is just too much but once you put that newspaper editorial away most people are busy living their lives. There's a big difference between feminist bias in society, politics and media, and having female overlords whipping our men all the way to SE Asia. The former is a (very disturbing) reality, the latter is not. Swedish society may be one of the most gender obsessed in the world but the picture of feminazi hell painted here is just exaggerated.

I would agree that there are obvious statistical differences between men and women as a whole, but I would also like to point out that technology has gone to great lengths to minimize the role of genetic differences when it comes to societal roles - especially those relegated to one sex or another. Example: To perform well in the Roman Legion, one must have the stamina and strength of a man to fight in hand to hand combat, even if it was done in short, violent bursts. Now, exceptionally strong women can fight, since most of the strength and stamina involves carrying gear rather than actually fighting. It takes relatively less strength to point and shoot than it does to hold back an enemy with a shield and stab with a spear.

This is absolutely fascinating. I had no idea that genetics play such a strong role in determining a child's preferences, intelligence, addictions, etc. For instance, there is no correlation between adopted children's IQ and that of their adoptive parents. The correlation is only between their genetic parents, even if they are not raised by them. So interesting.

I must say that i too was surprised that there is no correlation. I would have expected at least a small correlation as it's hard for me to believe that intelligence is only influenced by nature. But of course, nurture isn't just the parents. But one thing i asked myself and maybe someone here can answer this: Are there special requirements on adopting children that can cut the variation on adoptive parents iq down to a point where a significant correlation is really hard to find? I mean stuff like income/social status/etc. that unfolds in a very homogen parent group. Kind of holding this one variable constant to see how much the other (genetics) predicts?

Feminists should be allowed to do whatever crazy shit they want in their own dark corner of society. I'm fine with a bunch of dumb SJWs deciding to start their own "Gender Studies" academy, funding it with private funds, and then getting people to go to it.

Here's the linked section Dismantled from Wikipedia article Nordic Gender Institute :


The institute was dismantled as a Nordic Institution in December 2011 by a decision of the Nordic Council of Ministers, but some of its functions will be reopened as a co-operative body some time in the future. NIKK had initiated important projects with the goal of gender equality, coordinated and carried out, including Investigations, studies, surveys, reports and opinions.

The public debate in response to the 7-part documentary series "Hjernevask" (brainwashing) of the comedian Harald Eia, which aired in spring 2010 in the Norwegian television NRK had influence on the closing. The Norwegian Parliament addressed these television reports, the core of the criticism concerned the scientific neglect of the biological to the social component. The Norwegian network for Gender Studies states correlations between "Hjernevask" and increased discussion on the gender studies in its Annual report 2010.

Ihle has stated that the pair initially planned to make a TV program about the biology associated with Darwin year, but Steven Pinker's controversial bestseller The Blank Slate convinced them to "go a little deeper into the biological basis for the difference between people". 2010, Eia received the Fritt Ord Honorary Award "for, through the programme Brainwash, having precipitated one of the most heated debates on research in recent times."

Like the rubber band that Harald uses as an analogy for the success of students in the second video, the rubber band of feminism is near its limit. Hopefully those who hold it in their hands will let go slowly and not bring things to a tearing point.

Download it, seed it forever - keep the truth out there. Being a public tracker, I'd suggest running a VPN.

It really is a great video series.

"he is seeing what he is looking for" while she doesn't present any sources for her hypothesis. even worse the guy who talked about missing links and wanting others to prove his hypothesis wrong as compared to himself proving it right (reminded me about creationists). My stomach hurts now.

They all touch on different angles but I'd go with the first one.

i haven't seen the others, but the first one is relevant to this sub, and demonstrates the hilariously poor foundation many social scientists use to present supposedly irrefutable truths.

Watch the one on sex. It discusses sexual strategy.

The first one discusses innate differences in male and female preferences in the work place.

Just watched Part 3; Gay / Straight - the gender studies people are getting annoyed now, and keep saying "it isn't interesting" as an answer to questions he asks. TBH they're beginning to sound like they know what they believe isn't true, like a religious freak just before the realisation and subsequent denunaction.

I'm not sure if it's all blind denial, it is their job in the end.

0 upvotes • [deleted] • 5 years ago

True, must be devastating to have a comedien ask you questions you can't answer. What I mean is that when the scientists were presented with counter arguements they didn't seem to get angry. When the socilogists were, you could sense they were getting irritated, then started just saying, "who cares" "it's not important / interesting"

The gender studies people do exactly what they accuse the actual Science based studies of doing: Confirmation Bias. Their faux outrage is ridiculous and they have nothing but their own minds to backup their notions of 'equality'.

What I find amusing/depressing is they have NO INFORMATION to even confirm what they think.

Can someone explain to me what was the significance of the biological link of the effects of ones own biology and his or her sexual orientation and why the Norwegian people he was interviewing were constantly denying the biological link completely ?

I just don't get what the big deal is that there is a chance some people are born different ?

2 upvotes • [deleted] • 6 years ago

Because they want to see everyone as inherently equal. And being different implies that some people are actually "better" in some areas over others, which would imply that inequality is an inevitable outcome.

Just watching the first one it proves more the influence isms can have on the perspective of the scientitific community more than anything else. Scandinavian researchers are going to be a self selecting group looking to support their BS concept of gender because of feminism. Same goes for atheism and socialism and Global Warming. They all impact the scientists or 'experts' looking to back up those theories (those 4 in particular) and if not deal with a huge amount of backlash. They go in knowing what they want to find.

6 upvotesflamehorn6 years ago

What specifically is it about atheism, for example, that colours scientific inquiry? What theories are scientists looking to "back-up" from the point of view of atheism? I would have thought that the exact opposite was true, Christian "scientists" ignoring all the evidence to hand to back up their theories that the earth is 6000 years old, for example.

3 upvotesHeuristics6 years ago

One example is the a-priori rejection of the big bang hypothesis due to it lending itself better to a theistic world view.

Another is the rejection of genetics due to it clashing with one of the tenets of scientific atheism (egalitarianism) in for example the soviet union.

-2 upvotesAMan_Reborn6 years ago

The atheists that go into it to actively disprove god. They reveal a part of the universe that we are ignorant of and say 'See this disproves god' not 'This is a piece in the working of the Universe'. They then take it and parade around saying that essentially the creator idea of the uncaused cause is no longer valid which is usually nothing to do with what they were looking for in the first place. Meanwhile not only has the creator theory as an uncaused cause not even been dented it has not furthered their own concept, or lack thereof, of what the uncaused cause might be. So things are exactly as they were but now we have atheists parading around telling us in fact its not. They are misconstruing the science to suit their own purposes.

So are people who talk about the 6000 year old creation. There is no decided consensus even among creationists or even Christians and Jews what that means. Many of those that think literally everything kicked off 6,000 years ago ignore the subtlety and nuance of the Bible.

This does not prove gender studies is nonsense, it shows their being inconsistencies in the orthodox "social nurture theory" prominent in the second half of this century. Many, the majority even, of social scientists do acknowledge temperamental differences between boys and girls, without disqualifying theories on social reproduction of gender roles. When a new particle is discovered, disproving a theory we do not say physics is nonsense- it is improved and refined and the same thing exists with the study of genders. If anything the show showed that there is a lot more to learn about biological and social elements of gender.

1 upvotes • [deleted] • 5 years ago

As you can see the gender studies scientists are outright discounting any biological evidence, which is not only unscientific, but, as we see, empirically and factually incorrect. Gender studies is nonsense as far as trying to "rectify" the "inequalities" in society.
