The rules are simple: Pick a number. Get a random-ass you tube video. Some are long. Some are short. Some are weird af. Some you may have seen before. I DON’T KNOW YOUR LIFE. Watch one. Watch two. Watch them all. Your work can wait. This is IMPORTANT.
Spring break is in view, but here’s one last distraction as you make the final push to tomorrow. If you’ve been feeling frustrated about sexism lately (or just always), this website is probably just going to make you angry, but it’s very interesting. Professor Ben Schmidt of Northeastern recently made an interactive chart allowing you to look at words used to describe professors on RateMyProfessors broken down by gender and department. Read on for some examples, thoughts on methodology, and general fuel for your anti-patriarchal rage.
Hint: there isn’t one.
Like kgibbel and others, I found Kate Taylor’s recent New York Times ‘whoa, women enjoy casual sex’ piece to be troubling. I am not going to recount other criticisms already leveled on this blog. Instead, I would like to focus on a false narrative that Taylor incorporates, undoubtedly without realizing it, into her entire article, and which transforms the piece from perhaps-well-meaning-but-nevertheless sensationalist drivel into something much more sinister and offensive. This is not a particularly new false narrative, or newly false narrative, or even really a growing false narrative, but it is, regardless, irreparably false.
That narrative is all claims laid to The Object.
