Finally, mathematics is a cosmic language. It is the same for the sapients who live in a galaxy a billion light-years distant as it is for us. Mathematics is not dependent on the race, or culture, or ethnicity, (remember Jaime Escalante?) or sexual orientation, or … of the sorry little species of H. Sapiens that has crawled out of the muck of this obscure planet. Mathematics is already out there; it came into being in the first explosion that coagulated into our marvelous expanding universe.


I had half hoped that the "Eye of the Anointed" would recognize this and continue to politicize other areas of study! Guess not!


….stay tuned for a large flap and squawk for the "Largest Little Virtue Signaler in Nevada County"…..it's coming up after Game 2 of the World Series!

Because “all knowledge is relative and ‘things cannot be known objectively; they must be known subjectively.’”
Yep - 2 plus 2 is only 4 if you are a racist. Woke people know it can be several different things. Say - can I remind her of this when she wants a raise?
I told you the left is insane. Maybe not every single one, but the rest are enablers.
Has she explained as to how non-whites are currently besting the whites world wide in math?

‘things cannot be known objectively; they must be known subjectively.’


Another trite slogan suitable for bold font on her departments website!

Sorry, but those who keep harping about racism are racists. Tunnel vision.

For years I've been corresponding with Wayne Bishop, a math professor emeritus from CSU Los Angeles who was introduced by Jaime Escalante to attendees of the premiere of "Stand and Deliver" as "my math teeecher"... Wayne was an honored guest of Escalante's.


Wayne and I have been labeled as the Syphilis and Gonorrhea of math education by a Math Ed "expert" of the NCTM, but I'm not sure if I am the Syphilis. He is the Walrus. Goo goo goo joob.

Yes, it is true that in mathematics, one is judged by how well you reason abstractly. Just as Musicians are judged by the quality of their music. Ms.Gutierrez has no math background to speak of (a BA in biology has minimal math content) but the ability to "do math" is not a hindrance to reach the pinnacles of math education in the US. After all, Jo Boaler of Stanford has no math degrees but she's a rock star in Math Ed now, and Phil Daro was hired to WRITE the Common Core math standards despite his only degree being a BA in English.

The world has become as queer as a clockwork orange.

First Math and Now All Science

A feminist professor at the University of California-Davis has vowed to “challenge the authority of Science” by “rewriting knowledge” through a feminist lens.

Sara Giordano argues that "traditional science" relies on "a colonial and racialized form of power," and must be replaced with an "anti-science, antiracist, feminist approach to knowledge production.”

I hear she'll be collaborating with professors Dunning and Kruger.

…..Why am I not surprised?

'Further, she concludes by expressing hope that people will soon come to “embrace an irreverent disdain for traditional science and instead practice feminist science,” adding that this is time for a “much needed anti-science, antiracist, feminist approach to knowledge production.”'
Ooooh - I can hardly wait for actual examples of feminist science.
They will, of course, be anti-science.
Who hires these quacks?

Straight from Central Casting: Biologly is sexist in and off itself. DNA research is not science, it’s colonialism. 2 plus 2 equals male privilege. Well, if science says every cell contained within Sara Giordano’s body is male, the solution is simple: Science must become anti-science and knowledge must be rewritten.

Sorry, Sara. You were born male without a uterus or womb and have never menstruated and never will. Plus, you were born with a stem on the apple. So, yeah, from your perspective, science MUST be rewritten, you freak of nature.

Sara looks exactly like my friend’s son who is attending a college in Seattle. Spitting image. A very handsome young man of Phillpino decent. Everytime my friend posts a pic of his son, everybody comments how handsome he is.

The young man’s grandmother read to me word for word one paragraph out of her grandson’s textbook has he was visiting and studying for a test. She called and read the paragraph to me twice. Made her more concerned that upset. The chapter listed the general attributes to what is known as “human thought” as opposed to the rest of the Animal Kingdom. In the paragraph was tucked away a neat sentence that said “Repubcans are sub-human”, then continued on with the categories of human thought and philosophies. Hmmm.

So yeah, if the good professor thinks science is grounded in Male Chauvinistic Pig Conquest, by all mean cut off her dong. I will even send her a knife. |

Fellow quacks! All backed up by the most useless creature living on this ball of dirt……the university president.

I had thought perhaps Mr Boardman would chime in as he seems to consider himself quite the expert on the subject. This new kind of math and science seems to be quite the thing these days. All of us grumpy old conservatives just don't dig the new way!
Mayhaps Mr Boardman could give examples of this new high tech? He seems to be jiggy with it. Mr Boardman?
