MetaX

End of another week, let's talk about something else that is not related to politics. If you could have a super power, what super power would you choose? Flight, teleportation, superhuman strength, pyrokinesis, speed, telekinesis, telepathy, claws, a giant tongue or tail, etc. Here's a fun list of X-Men-like mutant powers. Do you think you'd be a hero or a villain? Would you team up and form a super-group or would you be solo? Remember, with great power comes great responsibility. Also, be kind to yourself and others.

sort the beans into four categories, decide each one is the less-preferred option.

After a few wonderful years on MetaFilter, I think I've picked up on a frequent thing that we tend to do when discussing power inequalities, i.e. sexism, racism, class and wealth, etc. I'd like to propose a 2x2 model for describing the possible perspectives that the analysis of the problem can take. Based on this model, I believe I have discovered something that MeFi "doesn't do well" - all possible conclusions are shot down as talking about the wrong thing. Hopefully, as a community we can recognize this and either "solve" the problem presented by the model, find alternative conclusions when using it, or at the very least stop using the model in the future.
