Yes. I'm still thinking about that study showing that 'kids these days' can't tell the difference between real and fake news. In part because I have more to say, but today's topic extends beyond just kids and fake news. Listening to someone the other day call trump supporters 'stupid' because they voted for him and the reactions to the study... I just. At some point it would be really nice if we all stopped assuming students/kids/ppl we don't like are stupid. There are many problems with this (beyond basic ableism). The valuation of a human's worth based on intelligence has a long and violent history. I've talked about this before when I criticise the notion of 'rationality' but this is the flipside of that discussion. So... let's talk about why assuming other people are stupid (or ignorant) is fucked up.
