‘Checking Privilege in the Animal Kingdom’: Biologists Investigate Animal ‘Inequality’

ANALYSIS: Increasingly, scholars and the media link so-called animal privilege with economic and sociological terms such as inequality and intergenerational wealth

“Squirrel privilege is real.” “Checking Privilege in the Animal Kingdom.” “Even Hermit Crabs Have Wealth Inequality.”

These headlines hail from Salon and The New York Times, respectively, and represent a growing trend among scholars and the media to tackle animal “inequality” — and also argue humans can learn important lessons about income inequality and privilege from such studies.

 

“Inequality is a threat to our social fabric, but it’s not just a human problem,” argued the World Economic Forum in January in a piece that connected human and non-human inequality.

Headlined “Inequality is not confined to humans. Animals are divided by privilege, too,” it was based on an essay published in Behavioral Ecology in December 2021, an essay which helped spawn a spate of recent articles on the topic.

 

“Mammals, fish, birds and even insects have been shown to benefit from inherited wealth and abilities,” the forum’s report stated. “…Some have a better quality of life than other members of the same species – including access to food and shelter – just because of their parents’ status.”

A flock of inequality examples were cited in the piece as it relates to animals such as hyenas, clownfish and wasps (the insects, not White Anglo-Saxon Protestants). Hyenas inherit territory, and similarly clownfish inherit sea anemones (think Finding Nemo). Wasps inherit hover nests:

  • Spotted hyenas inherit their rank in the pack from their mothers and these high-status families tend to be larger and outlive other families. Individual females often join to defend shared territory, with the highest born having the most access to resources.
  • Even underwater, rank and privilege persist, the study reveals. Individual clownfish inherit the right to hide in large sea anemones. This ensures them better protection from predators than those without such a birthright.
  • In the insect world, some female wasps inherit their nests from their parents which means they are more likely to produce offspring than less privileged “lone” females who are denied access to the nest

The forum’s piece then segued into a human-focused section labeled “extreme inequality,” noting that while “the top 1% of the wealthiest people own 38% of all wealth created since the mid-1990s, the poorest 50% of people have gained just 2% of it.”

 

The New York Times in its December 2019’s article “Even Hermit Crabs Have Wealth Inequality” cited a study which found the distribution of shells in a single hermit crab population “was surprisingly similar to the distribution of wealth in human societies.”

 

The “resemblance between crab and human inequality might come from similarities between crab vacancy chains and the ways people pass on wealth. While smaller crabs don’t exactly inherit their wealth from bigger crabs, the largest shells are a scarce resource that only a few crabs are privileged enough to get their claws on,” the Times reported.

The New York Times also cited the Behavioral Ecology piece in its January 2022 article “Checking Privilege in the Animal Kingdom.”

“To study wealth transfers between animals, scientists can ask concrete questions: Does a lizard that lives with its parents survive longer? Does a monkey with access to larger nut-cracking rocks go on to have more children and grandchildren?”

 

The December 2021 Salon report also cited the essay in its piece, “Squirrel privilege is real: Intergenerational wealth drives animal inequality,” noting: “Perhaps by understanding how privilege perpetuates among animals might help humans understand how to improve equity among our own species. Or, at the least, dispel outdated myths about the cause of inequality.”

The piece did not explain how better understanding the pine cone-gap between squirrels would “improve equity among our own species,” nor how this would “dispel outdated myths about the cause of inequality.”

Robots turn racist and sexist with flawed AI, study finds

Neural networks built from biased Internet data teach robots to enact toxic stereotypes

Key findings:

  • The robot selected males 8% more.
  • White and Asian men were picked the most.
  • Black women were picked the least.
  • Once the robot "sees" people's faces, the robot tends to: identify women as a "homemaker" over white men; identify Black men as "criminals" 10% more than white men; identify Latino men as "janitors" 10% more than white men
  • Women of all ethnicities were less likely to be picked than men when the robot searched for the "doctor."

Do you remember the good old days when we just tried to instill a sense of decency and kindness in little ones without any confusing mention of sexuality?

 

The fact that they are focussing on making kids wonder 'who they are', sexually, is nothing short of abhorrent. We are witnessing the destruction of childhood innocence and these deviant, predatory adults need stopping. No 'ifs' or 'buts' - just NO!

STOP PANDERING TO THE MENTALLY ILL!

Thankfully, at the present time in this country the vast majority of people are 'normal', and don't try and pigeon-hole themselves into these various minority interest groups.

 

Tolerance and 'inclusivity' need to work 'both ways' - why is it that this extreme minority who preach for 'tolerance' are actually the most intolerant people?

 

Tolerance, in this situation, is ignoring the "hurty words" like 'ladies and gentlemen... ' and focusing on the more important bits like "the next station is Norwich, please have your tickets ready for inspection"

 

The world would probably be a far more tolerant place, if we could find a way to close down Twitter, so these mentalists have no platform to push their minority views, and companies wouldn't need to keep 'apologising' or pandering to these minority interest groups.

This is more and more like the invasion of the bodysnatchers?

 

Friends creator Marta Kauffman donates $4m to apologise for lack of diversity.

 

https://popculture.com/tv-shows/news/friends-co-creator-shares-emotional-apology-over-controversial-aspect-classic-show/

 

Also in the Times, Telegraph Independent ...

 

Despite previously dismissing critics who said the NBC series wasn't diverse enough, the showrunner sees now that they were right.

 

 "Admitting and accepting guilt is not easy," Kauffman told The LA Times on June 29. 

 

"It was after what happened to George Floyd that I began to wrestle with my having bought into systemic racism in ways I was never aware of,"

 

"That was really the moment that I began to examine the ways I had participated. I knew then I needed to course-correct."

 

David Schwimmer had previously been critical of the series, sharing that he believes the show should have done more to uplift Black actors.

They could cover inclusivity succinctly by addressing announcements to, 'Ladies, gentlemen and the mentally confused'.

 it's past time we collectively call for ZERO tolerance without the fear of US being called the hurty names; racist/bigot/*phobic et al🤬

Zero Tolerance. That should be our new philosophy. Now that it's obvious that "tolerance" was a false value - Marxist language trickery -promoted by filthy subversive perverts who have dragged down all of Western civilization and is now practiced religiously by all the stupid fvckwits of the world. We should never again be duped into thinking this is a good thing.

The greatest minds of history have warned us against this, equating tolerance with the designs of a collapsing society. We are saddled with de-tolerating all that was once tolerated. 𝗦𝗶𝗲𝗴 𝗛𝗲𝗶𝗹!

Who gets to judge what is "too much" tolerance? No one gets a vote on it.

And what poor down trodden victim doesn't get "enough" tolerance? in your opinion.

 

"Tolerance" is the problem, especially when mixed with an apathetic, dumbed down, fluoridated, castrated society.

 

The Marxist's of the 60s in America (ex Frankfurt School) were all about breaking down social norms which they thought of as "pathological" - think "The Authoritarian Personality"

Herbert Marcuse  and his subversive ilk fled Nazi Germany to the United States. They lived in California which at the time was literally heaven on Earth and they sat indoors, in suits, in their beachside home and plotted and schemed on how they could destroy it.

 

And here we are today.

He had a few things to say about "tolerance" and "tolerating the intolerable"

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Critique_of_Pure_Tolerance

 

Marcuse argues that "the realization of the objective of tolerance" requires "intolerance toward prevailing policies, attitudes, opinions, and the extension of tolerance to policies, attitudes, and opinions which are outlawed or suppressed." He makes the case for "liberating tolerance", which would consist of intolerance to right-wing movements and toleration of left-wing movements.[5]

The harm done by long-term exposure to injustice—to the kind of imagery found in racist books, microaggressions and discrimination—calls for more than a simple understanding of kindness.

Sorry, me woke antennae got triggered by the use of "microaggressions".  Didn't read any further as the author is bound to be a tosspot.

 

Snap!

 

It's the adoption of pseudo-scientific terminology to invent some problem that makes me see red. These people need their 'mocroaggressions' stuffed up their noses, sideways, along with thier malignant brainwashing.

I remember being at school in assembly where we would all recite the Lords prayer and sing beautiful hymns. These days in schools it's lucky if they get one mention of Lord.

That's because hymns are racist.

Note the date - told ya they've been at this stuff for decades!

It's only gone 'mask off' since they made us wear masks.

And since Trump/Brexit gave them the sh!ts.
