Feminism, Art, Contradictions – Journal #92 June 2018 – E

Understanding art as a field (of socialized human action) defined by contradictions bears on how feminism is organized as political practice within this field.

This is exactly what trolls want. A 2014 study published in the psychology journal Personality and Individual Differences found that the approximately 5% of Internet users who self-identified as trolls scored extremely high in the dark tetrad of personality traits: narcissism, psychopathy, Machiavellianism and, especially, sadism.

Mark Driscoll is an unorthodox American Christian preacher who, until recently, was planning to come to Australia.
