Stanford “Gender Research” Director Declares Space Exploration To Be “Another Example of Male Entitlement”

as11-40-5875hreditWe previously We discussed recent publications by academics arguing that math is a form of white privilege and male domination.  Now, Marci Bianco, the communications manager of Stanford University’s Clayman Institute for Gender Research, has found a new manifestation of patriarchy: space exploration.  In the article on NBC.com, Bianco declares that “the patriarchal race to colonize Mars is just another example of male entitlement.”  The efforts reveals a “Columbusing attitude.” The movie The Martian will now be renamed “The Patriarch.”

Bianco goes after Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Richard Branson, as domineering, testosterone driven males.  Their effort to explore space is described as “the same instinctual and cultural force that teaches men that everything — and everyone — in their line of vision is theirs for the taking. You know, just like walking up to a woman and grabbing her by the pussy.”

Bianco apparently relishes the attention derived from her bizarre tirade.

Of course, you can also get responses by raving on the subway. NBC considered this low-grade and insulting analysis to be worthy of publication. That is why we are all discussing it.  Sometimes a lot of buzz about your work is not a good thing.

    1. David Benson – I know you are big on technicalities, so California will slip or slide into the ocean, not fall. 😉

                    1. David Benson – are they actually doing that for a living or doing that between gigs waiting tables?

                    2. David Benson – if they are actually making a living in the industry, good for them. 🙂 However, they may want a more experienced director than one whose resume is “Once saw Walt Disney”

  1. Victim profiteering.

    Honestly, she makes women appear to be helpless neurotics. This kind of harassment drives many women away from the feminist movement. This is the exploitation of women.

    Why doesn’t she work to stop female genital mutilation or domestic violence in America. You know, real oppression.

    1. It’s because women in nations practicing these mutilations have no political power or money to contribute toward these charlatans. Plus, these downtrodden women probably do not know this professor and never will. As a result they cannot provide the audience these public feminists want and need to promote themselves.

    2. Spot on, Karen S. When I was in law school back in the 80s, I studied the rise of FGM and believed that if ever confronted with this scourge as we are now, the West would stop it in its tracks. I never counted on the entrenchment of political correctness in how the West deals with practices contrary to our civilization. I was wrong.

      To Darren Smith’s point, it is interesting how feminists are fighting tooth and nail to protect a “woman’s right to choose” abortion, but are not stepping up for a child’s right to choose whether her genitalia will be mutilated. Of course it comes down to money and power.

  2. Amazing parallels of late to the Late Antiquity period’s decline into the Dark Ages. Does anyone see Visigoths on the horizon?
