Compassion, What’s it Worth?

Peace Not Pas

In the Oxford English dictionary, the word compassion is defined as ‘sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others’. The Middle English word is thought to have originated from Anglo-French and in turn from the Late Latin word compassio, meaning to sympathize, to bear, suffer. In numerous philosophies and almost all of the major religions, compassion is ranked as one of the greatest virtues.

The ability to be able to identify with another individual is a key component of what makes us human. Mirrored behaviours start in early infancy, with the mimicking of facial expressions and body movements of parents and carers. Such behaviours are highly related to the concept of compassion.

Gawker is Literally Hosting the Oppression Olympics | Critical-Theory.com

Who’s more oppressed, south Asians or black people? Trans-women or trans-men? Gawker is here to find out! All good branches of thought have their ad absurdum moment where, following an otherwise sound logic, thinkers are brought to obscene conclusions that legitimate straw arguments against the field as a whole. For instance, Marxists claiming that not being sexist is a distraction from the revolution, or shitty 2nd wave feminists who claim that trans-women are part of a larger misogynist plot to invade women-only spaces. And of course, the whole host of Tumblr academics who are trying to play the oppression olympics. The oppression olympics takes a wide array of awesome scholarship about the oppression of non-white, non-heterosexual, non-male, differently abled (and usually poor) folks and takes sides.
