Abstract

This holiday season, millions of Americans will gather with their families, some for the first time in nearly two years. But these gatherings may not all be happy ones, writes Dan Cassino. Discussing the findings of a national survey, he finds that those who want to talk about social and political issues are more likely to hold false beliefs about them, to the likely dismay of family members whose beliefs are based on facts. This is made worse, he argues, by men who are attempting to assert their own sense of masculinity by “mansplaining” their false beliefs to others.
