Men and Women Different? Nay! 'Science' Wrong Again!
My cyber-friend Malcolm Pollack recently blogged on the putative 'findings' of a so-called scientist, Mr. Larry Cahill, Principal Investigator of something called The Cahill Laboratory at the University of California, Irvine! Mr Cahill fancies himself an expert in Neurobiology and Behavior -- as if there were some link between the two -- and Malcolm tells us what this MAN is saying:
[T]hese profoundly disturbing new findings suggest that men and women might actually be quite different.Malcolm seems concerned in his blog post that these 'findings' might be correct, so I reminded him:
This 'science' must be WRONG because if it were true, there would have to be innate differences between the 'genders,' and we KNOW that there are no real differences because there are no 'genders' except insofar as the socially constructed 'male gender' oppresses the socially constructed 'female gender,' an oppression that began when the socially constructed 'male gender' overthrew the matriarchy ruled by the socially constructed 'female gender' and established a socially constructed 'male gender' rule of PATRIARCHY, so this 'science' is WRONG!Malcolm, nevertheless, seemed to remain under the sway of Cahill's pseudoscience and even suggested I was going a bit overboard in expressing the truth of what I know:
Your caricature is all too real, Jeffery.I responded as only a fair-minded person can:
Caricature? I'll have you know that even genitals are socially constructed! Even among animals! Not that animals are to blame -- they also suffer under Patriarchy's horrible, disfiguring power. Pity the poor porcupine, disfigured by a thousand pricks!I'll go even further: everything is socially constructed! Even Reality! Especially Reality! The honest truth is . . . NOTHING EXISTS:
And yes, it is sacred . . .
