Feminist Biology?

by W.F. Price on April 23, 2014

The University of Wisconsin Madison is preparing to offer the first post-doctorate program in “feminist biology” in the US. So what is feminist biology? Apparently, it is not science at all, but rather more “intersectionality” gibberish:

UW was granted the opportunity by Gertraude Wittig, a German Ph.D. biologist in the 1950s, Janet Hyde, professor of psychology and director of the Campus Center for Research on Gender and Women, said. Wittig suffered through bias and sexism that many women faced during that time frame, she said.

After working for the U.S. Department of Agriculture for several years, Wittig researched universities nationwide with strong gender and women’s studies programs to find one she believed had a strong emphasis on the intersection of gender and science, Hyde said.

“She concluded that ours was the best one to give the money to partly because we have a long history of representing biological research in our program, which is unusual for women’s studies programs,” Hyde said.

Hyde said they hope to make advances in approaches to science that detect gender bias in traditional biology and also pioneer new approaches to biological research that counteract those biases.

Houck said the department has a strong history of feminist analysis of science and biology and health. The post-doc is important for the department to continue its strong, innovative legacy, she said.

“For the larger university, what this does is sends a message to the academic community that UW-Madison cares about feminist science, they’re willing to promote feminist science and we want to be known as a university that supports and nurtures feminist science,” Houck said.

[...]

Fellows working in the program will be responsible for two parts, Hyde said.

The first is conducting biological research incorporating a feminist point of view, Hyde said, and the other is instructing a course for gender and women’s studies each semester. She said they have not had a faculty member be able to teach this course because of budget cuts over the past several years.

“What we need to do is produce more feminist biologists,” Hyde said. “We’re hoping to encourage that now and to make it a much larger and vibrant field.”

As colleges are beginning to fail around the US, instead of doing the sensible thing and eliminating useless departments like gender studies altogether, some are apparently choosing to wreck the legitimate disciplines by dumping contaminants like feminist biology into them.

When the universities inevitably go into steep decline, they will have only themselves to blame.

A Biology bachelor’s degree qualifies one to clean out monkey cages at the local zoo. A PhD in Feminist Biology qualifies one to clean out lavatories at the local dyke bar. An evolutionary advance.

The curriculum of feminist biology can’t be as harmful to common decency, security, safety and goodwill as the curriculum of feminist jurisprudence which has created manifestly more casualties.

But I agree, the tainting and the biasing off all things toward a feminist point of view and genderist construction cannot be a good thing long term.

“Lysenkoism (Russian: Лысе́нковщина), or Lysenko-Michurinism was the centralized political control exercised over genetics and agriculture by Trofim Lysenko and his followers. Lysenko was the director of the Soviet Union’s Lenin All-Union Academy of Agricultural Sciences. Lysenkoism began in the late 1920s and formally ended in 1964.

“Lysenkoism was built on theories of the heritability of acquired characteristics that Lysenko named “Michurinism”.[1] These theories depart from accepted evolutionary theory and Mendelian inheritance.

“Lysenkoism is used metaphorically to describe the manipulation or distortion of the scientific process as a way to reach a predetermined conclusion as dictated by an ideological bias, often related to social or political objectives.”

Frau Wittig, is clearly an oppressed woman as I am unable to find a Wiki page for her (come on girls, write one); but I wonder how even with her PhD-level of education it can be claimed that someone who was not even American was oppressed when she is taking jobs from American scientists and presumably American men at American Universities. What is the betting that she slept her way to Tenure. Is not this yet another woman making it all about her Vagina.

I wonder what kind of Biology Darwin did? Just consider how he kept some better qualified woman off The Beagle in his search for Patriarchal Finches in The Galapagos; the theory of evolution by way of natural selection is surely a theory of male privilege, and has no place in any modern equality-sensitive curriculum.

Speaking of feminists, recently I drove through Yellow Springs with an old drinking buddy. We checked out some ancestor graves at nearby Clifton Cemetery and reminisced about our life back in the 70s, when Antioch feminists destroyed the college and the town became a strident gaylesbian enclave. Eventually the college closed for good but the town continued on as a local hipster attraction. (My buddy informed me that “hipster” is derived from opium-smokers, who would lie on their hips during their reveries. He, a classic good old boy cracker, lives in the roughest black ghetto in Dayton because it is one mile from the metal shop where he has worked for 30 years.)

On the way out of town noticed a new building for “Antioch of The Midwest”, as the college has re-emerged and re-branded itself. Their concept for learner-directed education has some merit but their history of being steeped in feminist excess will be difficult to overcome towards making a profit. The “diversity-vibrant-social justice” website theme is not helping them in that regard.

“What we need to do is produce more feminist biologists,” Hyde said. “We’re hoping to encourage that now and to make it a much larger and vibrant field.”

This would appear to be about 20 years too late, fortunately. The entry above on Lysenkoism is extremely apt; not only did Lysenkoist agricultural policies lead to crop failures and thus famine, but Lysenkoism itself all but killed the study of genetics in the USSR for nearly a generation. Sending many of your brightest academics into Siberian forests to cut timber, or to the Kolyma gold mines, has obvious results.

Biology is one of the fields of science that appeals to women, because it plays to their strengths. Hopefully the ongoing study of the brain that continues to reveal clear and quantifiable differences between men and women will serve to spike “feminist biology”.

@ chinesefootsoldier

Actually, “anti-racist” mathematics isn’t as bad as it sounds. It’s mostly just a push to use ethnic names in word problems (for instance, “Chaim” instead of “Charles”, etc) and to teach children more about the history of mathematics outside of Europe (ie, discuss mathematical knowledge in ancient civilizations outside of Europe). Children actually leave school believing the only significant contributions to mathematics were made by Europeans. In other words, they leave school with a deficient education of the actual history of mathematics.

There many problems with left-wing social justice types, but the limited and correct aims of so-called “anti-racist” mathematics are actually fine by me. I do wish they’d pick a different name though.

I think more intelligent people like Andrew Sullivan are well aware of the overreach, and maybe they have a sense of how much anger it is causing, but I don’t think they’ll slow it down. Instead, I expect it to intensify. I know this because I happen to be Catholic and I live in Seattle, which is among the most partisan cities of all on this issue. Many people are calling for revocation of the Catholic Church’s tax exempt status here, and it’s only a matter of time before some jackass puts a bill in front of the legislature or some political appointee judge makes a ruling along those lines. They’re already trying to force the church to provide abortions at its hospitals, and this is the next step. Our mayor, BTW, calls himself a Catholic and has made demands that the church sanctify gay marriage. Who does he think he is, the pope?

Of course no discipline is immune to the strike force of F16s which is Feminist ideology. Consider the following from Susan McClary PhD at McGill University from as long ago as 1987 – she is – in case it is not immediately obvious – referring to Ludwig Beethoven:

‘The point of recapitulation in the first movement of the Ninth is one of the most horrifying moments in music as the carefully prepared cadence is frustrated, damning up energy which finally explodes in murderous rage of a rapist incapable of attaining release”. [isn't that contradiction in terms Susan?] What greater proof do you need that Beethoven was a Rape Culture practitioner.

..but there is more: Sonata form is apparently sexist, misogynistic and imperialist. Yes, C.P.E. Bach, she is referring to you; happily Alesandro Scarlatti’s 600 odd Keyboard Sonatas do not use Sonata Form (in the classical sense in which Susan uses the term) – lucky escape there Alesandro!

Dragnet, it has been obvious to me for some time that the US can either have “gay liberation” or it can have “free speech” but it can only have both for a rather short period of time. Because “liberation” unfortunately goes far, far beyond the live-and-let-live toleration of the 80′s and 90′s and now is heading into “mandatory celebration” territory. That’s the end of free speech. If I am required to publicly approve of something that my conscience is opposed to, then I’m being forced to lie, and since the ultimate power of the state always rests on men-with-guns, it’s a choice of “lie or die” at some point.

As we have seen with the Mozilla case, witchfinders will ferret out any deviation from the new normal, and seek to punish it. The parallels from the 20th century are numerous, and all of them can be called totalitarian to some degree regardless of the color of shirt worn.

The elites are trying to square the circle. Either they disappoint their radical gay allies, or they finish off free speech.

…and upon further reflection, “feminist biology”, Lysenokism and the new normal in anti-gay witchfinding all are merely a different shade of the same thing. Top-down, ideologically driven attempts to re-order reality no matter what the cost and no matter how bizarre or unrealistic.

In the long run, ideologues lose when they fight with reality, but it can be ugly in a lot of ways on that long run. An extreme example being People’s Kampuchea in the mid to late 1970′s, where the vanguard of the Khmer revolution attempted to kill every literate person in the country, in order to achieve a true, Year Zero restart of civilization. I’m not saying that’s the goal for any of the groups under discussion, but I am pointing out that campaigns to “cleanse society” of badthinkers can go pretty far in a short period of time.

I think Sullivan is genuine on this.

You might be right about this getting worse before it’s gets better. But I live in Boston and the liberals here seem pretty content to let the churches do what they want with regards to marriage and would disagree with the goings-on in Seattle. I maintain that a lot of the left-wing nuttiness in Seattle has less to do with liberalism that it does with personality disordered individuals who have managed to seize too much power.

And if churches are engaging in overt & strenuous political advocacy (ie, taking a position on gay marriage ballot initiatives, etc) then the question of revoking their tax-exempt status seems fair game to me. But short of that, I think the folks in Seattle need to cool their jets.

For now, maybe that is true. I live in flyover country and don’t see what Welmer sees in this regard. But that may just mean the local leftists haven’t gotten the bandwagon under way yet.

I think Sullivan is genuinely worried about it. He should be, because it isn’t setting a good precedent for when the shoe is on the other foot, which it may well be ten years down the road if things don’t work out so well for the progressives. And yes, there are plenty of disordered people in Seattle who have more influence than they deserve. Dan Savage is a good example of one. I heard him on the radio some ten or fifteen years ago late at night drunk or high talking and laughing about how he liked to go down to an area high school swimming pool to leer at the boys’ diving team, and now here he is lecturing the rest of us on what’s right and wrong…

Boston, for all its holier-than-thou liberalism, at least has some restraint and tolerance for people with different points of view. Seattle, on the other hand, is a left-fascist, culturally clueless little enclave that thinks way too highly of itself. The local press, business magnates and politicians all function as one unit, so there’s close to zero visible dissent. Hell, it took Eric Holder and the DOJ to finally force the local police to stop shooting anyone who flinched and to raise the county jail above medieval standards. Ordinarily, I’m not a big fan of Holder, but seeing as I’m one license suspension away from a trip to that jail and a possible MRSA or hepatitis infection as a result, I’ve got to give credit where it’s due.

And if churches are engaging in overt & strenuous political advocacy (ie, taking a position on gay marriage ballot initiatives, etc) then the question of revoking their tax-exempt status seems fair game to me. But short of that, I think the folks in Seattle need to cool their jets

Keep in mind that churches did most of the heavy lifting in the Civil Rights movement, which was definitely strenuous political advocacy, and yet nobody that I can recall ever threatened to remove their tax exempt status over that activity. That today’s “liberals” now want to use that tool says a thing or two about their methods, and their character I might add.

Quite frankly, I’m finding myself increasingly suspicious of these people and not at all convinced that they have benign intentions toward those who disagree with them.

While it is true that Boston and the SFBayArea are less militant about their leftism than Seattle..

…You really must come to terms with the fact that most of the left is not ‘liberal’ at all anymore, but rather illiberal, intolerant, and rigid. They are the only group who overtly wish to harm anyone who does not conform with their rigid dogma. That sounds pretty illiberal to me…

I’m reminded of a critique of “feminist science” written by a rather embarrassed sounding female scientist — I wish I could remember the title and author’s name.
I recall her telling about feminists who claimed that if only someone besides white European men had described the laws of gravity gravity would behave differently from the way it now does.
She also discussed the feminists who lamented the “triumph” of the Copernican astronomical system over the “Ptolemaic” system that was followed since Roman times because it was a “patriarchal” triumph over a “feminist” system. She noted that the feminists didn’t count the fact that Copernicus’ system is mathematically more efficient and has enabled space travel — and that the Ptolemy who systematized the cosmology of Classical times was also a man.

Secular-progressives like to ridicule creationists (ie – Christians only), for believing the world was created in seven days 4500 years ago as written in the Bible. But science has yet to prove how the universe was created – who created hydrogen and carbon? What’s the origin of matter? What’s beyond the universe, a brick wall?

The more theories, the more questions.

Meanwhile, greenhouse gas emissions cause global warming even though earth’s climate has been in a cooling trend for the last 19 years. No one’s more strident and dogmatic in their belief system than the Greens right now. Perhaps they should try prayer. Pray that China, India and other egregious polluters of mother earth will follow the once great super-power’s lead and sacrifice their economies to save the planet. Wishful thinking.

Yes, anti-racist mathematics is a disaster, because it’s just the beginning.

It starts with

“Frank and Mike start out 300 miles from each other along the same road. Frank drives east at 65 miles per hour, Mike drives west at 55 miles per hour. When do they meet?”

Which via anti-racist mathematics becomes

“Frank and Shaq start out 300 miles from each other along the same road. Frank drives east at 65 miles per hour, Shaq drives west at 55 miles per hour. When do they meet?”

Which becomes

“Frankie and Shaniqua start out 300 miles from each other along the same road. Frankie drives her big rig truck east at 65 miles per hour, Shaniqua drives her police cruiser west at 55 miles per hour. When do they meet? (See the accompanying illustration of Sophia, a real-life woman trucker, and Monique, a real-life woman State Police officer, meeting at a truck stop.)”

Which is how the 225 page, 1 pound math books of the 1960′s turn into the 1500 page, 10 pound math books of today, which systematically frustrate students with real math ability and which are never carried home or to class because they are too big.

Arab mathematicians get more than they deserve, especially since they stole most of it from India, like their numeric system.

There is no bedrock in biology called feminist biology, just as there is no such thing as masculine biology. It would be like saying we are all going to learn feminist astronomy. There is no such thing!!!!! Or feminist physics!!!! It doesn’t exist!!!!!!!
What disgusts me is that this German wants to come over here and re-write college books with an emphasis on feminism when it wasn’t women who discovered the truths about biology, it was men. Most of what they discovered happened in the 1800′s and 1900′s. What an insult to women, to steal from men and try to reintroduce it with a feminist message?
Any woman who is dumb enough to buy into this deserves every bit of brainwashing that she will absorb. Right now corporations are hiring less and less college graduates because the quality of education is getting lower and lower. If you were a scientist would you hire a woman with a feminist biology degree? Or would you rather hire someone with a normal, scientifically proven biology degree that is neither masculine nor feminine?

Feminist “Biology”?

Is that like Creation “Science”?

a German's opinion June 17, 2014 at 01:16

Please don’t make a big thing out of the fact that “this woman” was born a German. We, “the Germans” have nothing to do with that woman. If we would have known her at all… we would be happy, that she had left. I suppose, sunny California is the right place for her? ‘Cause I was told, that many loonies live there.
