Part two of my series on Sex and Aggression is now uploaded. My first video in this series explored sexual violence as seen through the lens of primatology and evolutionary biology. In this video I look at how sexual violence is re-shaped through the lens of history and culture. I specifically focus on some of the major legal and cultural changes in views about sexual violence that occurred from the Medieval to Modern period in the West.

The rapidly changing structure of society led to a radically new way of conceptualizing gender and violence in the 19th Century, which has been critical in laying the foundation for how we have come to conceptualize sexual violence today.

Hope you enjoy!

Just uploaded my first video in a series aimed at tackling the difficult discussion surrounding sexual assault and sexual harassment currently exploding in the media. This first video sets a backdrop for a larger exploration of sexuality and aggression in humans by investigating the behaviors and unique selection pressures of our primate ancestors. I dove deep into research on Primatology for this video and found it exceptionally fascinating and illuminating. I look forward to any feedback and reflections from others on the research I put together and the views I came to through the research.

This one was a lot of work, so I hope you enjoy!

Uploaded Part 2 of my dialogue with award-winning philosopher Thomas De Zengotitia. We continue our talk on philosophy, mediated reality, and the search for authenticity in a postmodern world.
Also, I've contacted De Zengotitia and he is interested in doing a follow up interview five years on. We are going to be piggybacking off many of the themes we explored in this dialogue and discuss what has happened in the cultural landscape since. Well dig deeper into postmodernism, as well as other topics like academia, Trump, and Jordan Peterson.
Stay tuned.

Just uploaded a new video. My riff on why I got into practicing Muay Thai martial arts and why I recommend a martial arts practice to other women. Included is a broader discussion about gender roles, how to develop more resiliency in responding to aggression, and how women can release men from their traditional protector role.
