'Humanology' is a word I invented to cover the study of people in their entirety, from every aspect of individual and group psychology to the underlying growth and decay of civilisations and the reasons why empires rise and fall.
Because there is no word in the English language that expresses the sheer scope, and there should be.
This forum is the place to discuss every aspect of the human condition.
If you can phrase it in a way that doesn't cause problems for any of our younger members if their mothers catch them reading, and that won't be alienating to women, post by all means. If you can't, don't.
It's one of my few actual rules on the Chaos Cascade, and I'm sure I don't really have to explain why
'Female Friendly' - to me, at least - is basically avoiding anything that might give the impression this forum is meant to be a boys' club. Coz it ain't I like the idea of gathering lots of reasonable people from all over the world into one big talking shop where we can all have fun, without anyone feeling intimidated or unwelcome by the atmosphere.
So I guess the short answer would be 'showing consideration'

it will do, as one of the first things you need to do to "modernise" your society is to break down the sense of community, so that people will go for the things that make them better off, while not necessarilly been better for the community. You can later sell them the idea of community once you have all the nasty little things in place that allow you to keep an eye on people, but want the self govening aspect of community back.
