And I even agree with you about the distinction between prejudice and stereotyping. Thanks for your post in general.
I don't mind being a devil-but I've been told I make a better succubus.
After a week and a half of lectures, homework and study on the specific differences between prejudice, stereotypes, system 1 thinking, system 2 thinking, how evolution theoretically plays into all of it, discrimination etc... I figured it would be helpful to point out that there is in fact a difference. We often link them, we often see where there are legitimate links. But-the existence of one doesn't necessarily mean that the other is actually there.
