First they politicized climate science, now biology?

 

Can't we get behind this?

Can’t we all get behind this?

University of Wisconsin – of course – announces new post-doctorate degree program in”Feminist Biology”.

“The program is the first in the nation — and probably the world,” said Janet Hyde, director of the campus Center for Research on Gender & Women, on the university’s website. Dr. Hyde is a professor of Psychology and Women’s Studies who received her Ph.D. in 1972 from the University of California-Berkeley.

The first post-doctoral fellow, Caroline Van Sickle, also responded to Campus Reform’s inquiries about the program, saying via email: “We aren’t doing science well if we ignore the ideas and research of people who aren’t male, white, straight, or rich. […] Feminist science seeks to improve our understanding of the world by including people with different viewpoints. A more inclusive science means an opportunity to make new discoveries.”

The university’s program in feminist biology begins in September.

One of the (many) reasons communist countries lagged behind the west in science was that all research had to be conducted and interpreted according to the rules of Marx and the People’s dictatorship. Now, scientific research is to be judged by the extent to which it includes a gay or poor or “feminist” perspective? I can think of no private sector job that would accord any value to an extra year spent studying biology from a transgender or feminist perspective; on the other hand, it’s easy to envision such a program as a requirement for a government or academic position.

Just saying.

    So if a white male cures cancer we should ignore it. Brilliant!

    The prior achievements of a lot of white males have given these people far too much time to think. The results are a disaster.

    Like I said here many times, much of the US educational system is fraud on the American people.

      Yet ultimately they sew the seeds of their own destruction. When the consumers understand that they aren’t getting any value for their edukashun dollar, they will stop buying garbage degrees. Mass educratic layoffs will follow, and then starvation since the purveyors of this garbage possess no other skills marketable outside of the cocoon of a-caca-demia.

    Why do women have periods? Because they deserve them!!

    I got more!!

  7. “State” universities went on a PhD creation gig in the late 60’s
    All about marketing….and tax funded budget increases
    Check out the Nouveau Gauche Organizations and almost all have a couple to give credibility to their “scientific research”.
    Check out what their incredible amazing new breakthrough discoveries, peer reviewed and fully vetted by international scholars as were the original PhDs and there won’t be any…except the perfect fund raising fit to the NGO.

    Sounds like Dr. Hyde is pissed she had to work as a stripper in the late 70’s to pay the bills while a biology student, and hates men as a result.

    Was Dr. Jekyll a feminist?
