No, not voice input, iPad input. I have a bluetooth keyboard, but I was using the onboard keyboard where you often make mistakes. Then the OS guesses what you meant. I didn't proofread well.

Actually, my whole response was intellectually sloppy.

Interesting to think about groups and individuals. The ability to see someone as an individual AND as a member of various groups is a necessary one, I think. We need both types of information to interact socially. The problems arise when we confuse these two modes or start denying the validity of one or the other.

As for example illustrations... That's okay. That's why they built the 'Net.

How do you like your iPad?

You might like the Steele book. He talks a lot about the various groups people identify with and what he calls "identity contingencies." They're the results of identifying or being identified as part of a group and they can be positive, negative, or neutral.
