    In fact, the entire idea of "white male science" reminds me, I'm afraid, of "Jewish physics." Perhaps it is another inadequacy of mine, but when I read a scientific paper, I can't tell whether the author is white or is male. The same is true of discussion of work in class, the office, or somewhere else. I rather doubt that the non-white, non-male students, friends, and colleagues with whom I work would be much impressed with the doctrine that their thinking and understanding differ from "white male science" because of their "culture or gender and race." I suspect that "surprise" would not be quite the proper word for their reaction.

    noam chomsky rules but he still sits on a platform of liberalism, so when it comes to things like that i believe he is wrong.

    my black friend fucking loves chickenwings

    i do too

    that makes me not racist

    I do not get this stereotype.

    Who the fuck doesn't love KFC and watermelon.

    If someone told me I could eat those two things for the rest of my life and have no nutritional problems, I would be so down with that.

    i agree

    HP Lovecraft was a notorious racist.

    Therefore Pirates of the Caribbean 2 is a notoriously racist movie as they took some of their design ideas from him.

    HP Lovecraft was also a bad writer but that's a different line of thought there!!

    there's not a lot more to say I guess?

    except that I think that the idea of 'white male science' is maybe the dumbest thing that academia has ever spat out

    White males are no longer able to think.

    Relatively no longer exists cause Einstein figured out that shit and the only things we know about nuclear physics comes from Curie.

    I never read any of his major works, just some assorted short stories

    maybe they weren't indicative of his portfolio, but I wasn't impressed

    People that aren't straight cis-gendered white males are unable to properly appreciate H.P. Lovecraft.

    Sorry.

    on some issues, yes, of course. for example, i am going to hold a gay person's opinion on gay rights in far higher regard (and be a harsher critic of) than a straight person's. the straight person is coming from a position of privilege and will have nothing new to ever add to any discussion.

    The idea - as I understand it - is not that 'white male science' is wrong, per se, but rather that it is irrevocably tarred by the sociological background from which it emerged.

    I mean, it's still a stupid idea, but it's not quite that stupid.

    i, again, never said the straight person's opinion is WITHOUT value, it just certainly has LESS value in comparison to the gay person in this example!

    Also as teefs isn't a white psy-gander like I, she isn't in a position to say that our science is wrong. And MY OPINION overrides hers.

    that's the practical (ie what actually happens) though. a straight person isn't really going to suddenly have this shocking new idea or perspective on LGBTQ liberation. i mean, if they do, i'll gladly revise my opinion, but for now, its just not the case

    I can never listen to music and write. It's always like, "Lyrics lyrics lyrics" and then I start singing them in my head.

    Then they translate onto the paper and I can't think anymore.

    it's pretty unfortunate that lovecraft was such a poor writer, because he had some shit hot ideas

    also pretty unfortunate that those ideas were rooted in extreme racism and xenophobia!
