Is a Neutral Standpoint Possible?

After reading both “Feminist Standpoint Theory” in the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy and Wikipedia’s statement on “Neutral Point of View (NPOV)” consider the following questions:

  • Is it possible to keep your standpoint AND remain neutral?
  • Can you “begin with the lives of the marginalized” and be neutral? Why or why not?
  • Is neutrality problematic for WGS? Why?
  • How has remaining neutral silenced you or ignored your lived experience?
