Is This A Priori Research – The Orange One

BT is an intelligent, beautiful, charming student doing anthropology research at the university where I studied classical Latin, philosophy and English language and literature a long time ago.

In a one and a half hour interview for BT’s qualitative research project on Melbourne’s freedom movement, I detected an a priori trend in her/his/its/your/our/their thinking.

I expressed concern to BT as best I could that I was uncomfortable that there might be what I considered a priori conclusions about me which I considered ageist racist or sexist in the research conclusions and requested permission for that opinion, if I held it when I read it, to be printed in the final project.

That request was never discussed with me.

BT told me that she/he/it/we/you/they could not work with me.

I believe that inclusion is always better than exclusion if what we are all doing is working for the common good.

But that is an old fashioned belief of a now redundant male midwife living in poverty in what BT seems to agree is a police state.

In the fight for freedom and truth, we should be on the same side.

As far as I can tell.

P.S. at the time of writing I do not know what BT’s preferred pronouns are, just that BT told me that he/she/it/we/you/they does not identify as a woman.
