What makes people change their core beliefs about how the world works (a.k.a. their worldview)? This question intrigues me, as I note in this post about how Canadian health care converted a self-identified conservative to support universal health care.
In this blog post, you can read about a similar sort of thing happening: a guy who used to be a real misogynist explains how, over a period of years, he slowly began to change his mind about the feminist conspiracy to oppress men and keep “nice guys” like himself from getting laid.
What would it take for you to change your mind about a deeply held belief regarding gender or sexuality? This guy’s journey involved self-awareness, analysis of his feelings, and empathy – tools I’d recommend to anyone.
