"I tend to dislike large gatherings too.  I went to an atheist meetup for awhile.  It was very loud, constant talk by maybe 7-8 people.  That would be OK if they were saying profound and meaningful things, but they…"

Idaho Spud commented on Jonathan Tweet's blog post Talking Over Women
"I don't know if I talk over women more than men, but I talk over anyone very little.  Partly because I need time to think about the subject before I spout-off, partly because I feel like I should listen to the other person if I want them…"

Luara commented on Jonathan Tweet's blog post Talking Over Women
"Here's a meta-analysis of interruption and gender research.  Yes, there are different kinds of interruptions.  There are intrusive interruptions, intended to dominate. There's "back channeling", when the interruption is…"

Čenek Sekavec commented on Jonathan Tweet's blog post Talking Over Women
"Yes I quite agree regarding oppression in the sense that it can be an expression of power. For example I have noticed that I am far more likely to interrupt a social inferior (like an employee) particularly if they are wasting my time. Likewise in…"

Luara commented on Jonathan Tweet's blog post Talking Over Women
"It's certainly a problem involving the oppression of women.  Just because women are doing some of the oppressive behavior, doesn't change that.  Similarly, studies have been done where a woman applicant for a job was rated as…"

Čenek Sekavec commented on Jonathan Tweet's blog post Talking Over Women
"Let me clarify: I don't agree that the problem is that "Men talk over women too much." But rather, that women are talked over extensively by both men and women at equal rates [1]. This is why I don't think it is useful to…"

"That's interesting, Luara! On a somewhat unrelated note, in an Italian family, one does get talked over a lot...have to learn to hold your own. Too much yelling when I was growing up. :/"

Luara commented on Jonathan Tweet's blog post Talking Over Women
"From an informal study of interruptions: - Men did about 2/3 of the interruptions - Men were almost three times as likely to interrupt women as they are to interrupt other men. - Women interrupt each other constantly, and almost never interrupt…"

Luara commented on Jonathan Tweet's blog post Why Atheist Are Jerks

Talking Over Women

Posted on October 26, 2014 at 10:35am 17 Comments

Men talk over women too much. The atheist community would be better if we did that less. Let's do it less.

This Sunday's blog post is about atheism and Christianity in Denmark. Very different from here in the States.

Welcome,Jonathan ! Glad you could join us. :D

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.

It's always great to see a new member jump right in as you have done.
