    I'm so done with TSR. All you c*nts ever do is bash people's degrees and make it seem like anything other than STEM is worthless when it clearly isn't the case. It just makes people feel as if they are a useless parasite who deserves to be put down unless they are a doctor or engineer.

    why not? Disregard the hyperbole in the last sentence if you must.
    Because it's just my opinion and has no empirical evidence to support it.

    your hypothesis on the original thread sounded fairly convincing tbh.

    STEM Master Race theory isn't just a TSR thing dude, I experienced discrimination for being non_STEM at work too

    'so what' would be the next step of course, but the not knowing whether it is or not is just as bad as being told it is/isn't.

    I refer you back to Groot 'why do guys get upset…if 2 people both have great personalities and treat me well, but one has [X skill-set above the other, in her case aesthetics], of course I am going to be more attracted to [1 with superior skill-set], that's just the way it is'

    apply to [X degree]

    in the place I have been lurking non-STEM is a deal breaker aye. In my old work-place, my colleague frequently told me how only STEM grads are going to get jobs in the current climate, non-STEM has no value. Etc.
    Well yes, I agree if there are two men that are EXACTLY the same then the one with a better skill set is a more attractive option. But really. That is very unlikely, each person has different things to offer, it'll never get to the point where the only difference is whether or not they did a STEM degree.

    Your friend was clearly talking out of his ass. Your problem is that you find it hard to decipher between what's common sense and what's insensible advice. Therefore you take many things to heart. Stahp it.

    It's been done now, get over it.

    Think of how you can use that degree to your advantage.
    Eva did you get hurt, you do realise I was joking right.:rofl:

    You're so sensitive.:laugh:

    Yep, he can remake as many accounts as he likes but it's always obvious it's him when he goes ON AND ON about the same stuff constantly winging.

    I don't see why it makes a difference, but yes I was outed by the forum about a month ago as 'Riku'. Troll, troubled young man, obstinate pseudo-intellectual, think of me what you want I just need answers

    nope; however you are biased towards pandering my insecurities as first respondent to the question in favour. Did you do Arts/Humanities/Social Sciences yourself?
    How can you answer with 'nope', and then not elaborate, when you told another poster not to do that? You cannot disregard my opinion of how my views fit within society with a single word, as your opinion is not more factual than mine. I wasn't pandering, by the way, I was simply stating my view on the question you posed.

    I'm in sixth form, currently studying English Lit., Geology, and Physics. I also took French, but dropped it before this year.

    then why did Groot make this argument as a pure hypothetical; she must have experienced it no

    yeah my support worker tried to epxlain this but I do think it's possible for 2 people to identically meet all controllable variables and then 1 having 1 slightly better controllable variable. If we forget uncontrollable variables such as e.g. height then yes the hypothesis remains valid

    ah by 'nope' I meant 'you are right, that does not make you part of general society; however' [see previous post]

    'This doesn't answer the question?'

    'Yes it does'.

    This can either mean

    a) 'it answers the question'

    or

    b) 'yes, STEM degrees are superior'

    What's the point being insecure about it? You chose to do that degree at whichever institution you attended. If your degree doesn't prove to be particularly useful and you find yourself lacking employment in that field, pick something else that doesn't require a degree you don't have and work towards that instead. Nothing gained in feeling insecure/moaning about it when you've already done the thing.
