isthisfeminist:

This woman is doing science. IS THIS FEMINIST? 
“Science,” as a narrative of knowledge, prizes a phallocentric adherence to logic and mastery, breaking things down into discrete parts and seeking to name and control their interactions, rather than viewing them as an intuitively connected, interdisciplinary, feminine whole. This woman is adopting and reinforcing a masculine-supremacist view of intelligence which encourages women to rely on externally defined “facts” and academic credentials, rather than heeding their own inner wisdom. A true feminist simply knows the cure for Alzheimer’s disease, possibly because it’s yoga. PROBLEMATIC.

From the Health Care Debates:

In which Rand Paul makes some bizarre “philosophical” comments on health care rights and slavery.

"Hey, Men, I’m Funnier Than You"

"Oh, great! Let’s talk some more about how women aren’t funny. Science has performed yet another study of terrible people, and—surprise!—unearthed terrible results: Apparently women in the workplace are incapable of making funny jokes. Men’s jokes, on the other hand, receive laughs 90% of the time. The reason? Well, science checked with conventional wisdom, and conventional wisdom explained that "Men in general are the ‘funnier sex.’" COOL STORY, BROS. TELL IT AGAIN."

I dreamed we were there. The plane leapt the tropopause, the safe air, and attained the outer rim, the ozone, which was ragged and torn, patches of it threadbare as old cheesecloth, and that was frightening. But I saw something that only I could see, because of my astonishing ability to see such things: Souls were rising, from the earth far below, souls of the dead, of people who had perished, from famine, from war, from the plague, and they floated up, like skydivers in reverse, limbs all akimbo, wheeling and spinning. And the souls of these departed joined hands, clasped ankles, and formed a web, a great net of souls, and the souls were three-atom oxygen molecules, of the stuff of ozone, and the outer rim absorbed them, and was repaired. Nothing’s lost forever. In this world, there’s a kind of painful progress. Longing for what we’ve left behind, and dreaming ahead. At least I think that’s so.

I am 28 years old. I have an undiagnosed, debilitating, neurological disorder. I haven’t been able to work in 3 years. I’ve barely been able to get out of bed for 10 months. After fighting tooth & nail, I received medicaid only to lose it right before my diagnosis. I just got it back but the doctors here quit taking it because they weren’t getting paid. I am back at square one and it is taking months to get in to a new doctor. I don’t qualify for disability (because I don’t have a solid diagnosis). I’ve been homeless for 3 years. I’m afraid I will die before I get treatment. I’m afraid I will die on the street. I’m a favor away from living in an alley. Mom can’t help, she’s severely disabled too. Step-dad finally found a job, after a year of looking. He’s getting laid off tomorrow. This isn’t just about the bailout, this isn’t just about justice for those who put us in and are keeping us in this situation. This is about survival, being able to provide for our families, being able to find a job, being able to eat and have a place to live. We are only as strong as our weakest link. I am the 99%
