Generics, Implicit Communication and Political Manipulation

Sally Haslanger has recently argued that generic utterances play a special role in transmitting racist, sexist and other oppressive ideologies. I argue against some of her specific claims and suggest that the use of generics she discusses needs to be situated in the broader context of implicit political communication, a greatly under-explored topic in philosophy.
