Wikipedia Primary School invitation for sexismEdit

Hi everybody. On behalf of the teams behind the Wikipedia Primary School research project, I would like to announce that the article sexism was selected a while ago to be reviewed by an external expert. Unfortunately, the expert who had agreed to review had to decline later on. Our first call for community review was already 6 months ago and since then the article has changed quite a lot. We have identified another expert to help review the articles. We would like to ask interested editors to join our efforts and improve the article before October 31, 2015 (any timezone) as they see fit.
A revision will be then sent to the designated expert for review. Any notes and remarks written by the external expert will be made available on the talk pages under a CC-BY-SA license as soon as possible, so that you can read them, discuss them and then decide if and how to use them. Please sign up here to let us know you're collaborating. Thanks a lot for your support! -- Anthere (talk)


More eyes needed at Talk:Race and intelligenceEdit

Editors who watchlist the article Scientific racism might be interested in looking at the related article Race and intelligence, which has been an area of contentious debate and edit-warring. (It is currently locked down for 3 days.) While Scientific racism is, I think, a good example of how Wikipedia handles fringe, the article Race and intelligence has a very different tone and content, as is clear from the first paragraph of the lede. See also Race and intelligence#The Jensenism debates. I'm putting this notice on all the WikiProjects that list Scientific racism as of high importance, in the hope that more editors will participate in discussions at Talk:Race and intelligence and help make the article compliant with WP:NPOV and WP:FRINGE. The problems at Race and intelligence were discussed off-wiki here: [1]. Thanks. NightHeron (talk) 13:40, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up and the link to the off-wiki article. Looks like the page in question has been improved a great deal over the past few months, though work clearly remains. On this topic, see also the hot messes over at The_Bell_Curve and Charles_Murray_(political_scientist). Generalrelative (talk) 20:36, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

Caste-based prostitutionEdit

An article caste-based prostitution was removed, to be redirected to prostitution in india, where any mention of prostitution revolving around caste was also removed. The section mentioning about it in child sexual abuse and child prostitution was also removed by the same users, with reasons given that vary each time it is put back. The topic is about villages of certain caste groups that revolve around prostitution of females, often groomed from a young age and it cites The Guardian and Al Jazeera. I would genuinely appreciate your input this matter here [2] [3]. JustBeCool (talk) 02:34, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

If there is anyone interested, discussion to delete this article is here. JustBeCool (talk) 06:44, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Help expand List of police violence incidents during George Floyd protests?Edit

There have been some 400+ documented incidents of police violence in the past days, according to one attorney's data. We need help finding reliable sources and generating NPOV text describing them. Please help, it's a large project. Feoffer (talk) 22:23, 11 June 2020 (UTC)

Reopening the conversation on Trumpism and fascismEdit

  You are invited to join the discussion at Talk:List_of_fascist_movements#Semi-protected_edit_request_on_11_June_2020.

I know that this is a well worn and controversial topic, but in light of the shift described in the recent article "The Debate Over the Word Fascism Takes a New Turn" by Jennifer Szalai in The New York Times,[1] I wonder it may be possible reopen the discussion in a civil and productive way. While a definitive statement identifying Trumpism with fascism may not be advisable, a section in List_of_fascist_movements detailing the controversy, and the fact that notable mainstream historians, philosophers and political scientists have come around over time (especially in light of recent events) to viewing the term as a useful description, seems to me appropriate.
