> Something can be "real" and not exist at the same time.
Oh im having a laff m8.
'People think something is true' being true and 'thing is true' being true are not the same.
>Ignoring that social trends and constructs have an effect on how the world functions
I never said that. I said they aren't real. The subjects of the social constructs that is, not the fact that people believe in them.
Every time someone makes this shit argument that "but ppl think so and so they do things didferently so it EFFECTS STUFF" they're just using it as abit of mental gymnastics to make the leap to 'so yeah its basically real in some sense I can now go on acting and feeling as though it is.'
No its not.
