    word meaning

    Blind spots


    A blind spot is the converse of a triigger. It is something which should arouse a eaction but does not do so.For example, a white man may be sensitive to racism and be very committed to anti-racism while at the same time, having little or no sensitivity to sexism. That is, he may be 'gender-blind', seeing the world through a man's eyes and failing to recognize that woman that women are likely to have a different prespitive. similarly,a person who is keen to ensure that childern's rights are not overlooked or undermined may,ironically, display a very negative, patronizing or dismissive attitude towards older people.This is a point to which I shall retun in Chapter 9.
