Psychology (Humanities), 1943

The unfathomably selfish idea of not agreeing to anyone changing anything they want on a whim for their own reasons.

A new entrant to the gender/culture war, “gatekeeping” is apparently “deciding who does or does not have access or rights to a community or identity”. Derived from psychologist Kurt Lewin’s 1943 “Gatekeeping Theory”, on the mass media, which was detailed in the chapter “Forces Behind Food Habits and Methods of Change” of “The Problem of Changing Food Habits: Report of the Committee on Food Habits 1941–1943”.
