Possibly unpopular opinion 

EvoPsych is a lie. None of the field's claims are verifiable and it's extremely often just used to justify bigotry and essentialist, binary views on gender. It's the phrenology of the modern era.

This opinion is surprisingly popular considering I studied Psychology and my professors sure seemed to think the field was viable. o:

@slightlyflightyone My largest critique of the field of Psychology after leaving it is that there's a lot of unearned confidence about many of the claims they/we made.

It gets criticized for being a soft science for a reason. They tend to lean heavy on general conclusions made from a handful of studies, but there's not a lot of drive to reexamine studies or assumptions as a matter of discipline.

@sandrockcstm Interesting. o.o

That’s what I was going for before I shifted directions. Briefly to LCSW, and now Peer Wellness Specialist.
