Just a smile to start - or end - your day.  In August/September issue of Philosophy Now, Sandy Grant is talking about dogma, what it is, where we find it,  and how we deal with it.  She  says this:

 

There are also philosophical dogmas.  One of the dogmas of philosophy is that philosophy is not dogmatic.   (page 27)  :spin:

with my realistic approach,I believe that phlosophy needs positive sciences. there are a few scientific journals that try to use mathematics and physics in philosophy. but not all of them are professional and popular. all in all these contributions are again prominent

To separate the male & female populace. It starts in Elementary School with segregated restrooms. Then you go on to A) Workforce (homo), B) Military (Homo), C) Prison (Homo). You're not considered a person or as a member of society until they've drilled it into you for 16 (Kentucky)-18 years.

That view would seem to be a bit contentious. See the opening para of the Wiki article on dogma, in which followers of a particular school of philosophy can be said to embrace a certain dogma.

"Dogma" need not be a pejorative term, by the way.

Ah, no.  My quote was out of context.  She is not making it pejorative at all.  And she does discuss how followers of variouus schools of philosophy have their own dogmas.   Her entire article is about the meaning of "dogmas" and how people adopt them as authoritative philosophy, thinking it is a requirement if they want to be part of that "school".   She says  dogmas are not usually forcibly imposed on adherents.  They start as ideas and the adherents believe they are dogmas that have to be accepted as gospel (my term).   And she says that accepting ideas as dogmas "because I said it" ("I" being the voice of authority) is an awful thing to do.

 

So, in what I posted "as a smile for the day",  she points out the irony of a group that claims it has no dogmas but really has, as have most groups.

 

Does that clarify?
