We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Stop Equating “Science” With Truth

10th August 2017

Chanda Prescod-Weinstein (I am not making this up) delivers a hiding to your lying eyes.

It’s 2017, and people are still debating whether or not women are intellectually inferior to men, and whether we are entitled to a workplace that isn’t toxic to people simply based on their gender and sex.

Well, no, actually. People are debating how much to tar and feather the straw man of ‘women intellectually inferior to men’, which nobody actually believes any more, but it’s such a useful straw man than it’s perennially resurrected for the Two-Minute Hate.

Note the forced distinction between ‘gender and sex’, and the focus on whether women have a workplace that isn’t toxic and to hell with whether men have the same. Men and women are absolutely identical and besides women are superior in SO many ways.

To make a tedious story short, she has a problem with science because it doesn’t square with her Diversitarian religious beliefs. Poor baby. I am especially struck by her treatment of ‘the invention of whiteness and the invention of race’, as if these were constructed surreptitiously in a lab in the basement of the Koch brothers mansion and then foisted on an unsuspecting proletariat, women and minorities hardest hit etc. etc.

This woman is a ‘philosopher of science’ (how can you be a ‘philosopher’ of a field that you despise?) and alleged ‘particle physicist’ (not sure I believe that) at a state university. Your tax dollars at work (or, in this case, at random).

Apparently science is just another instance of White Privilege. Who knew?
