Professor Natalie Gosnell has declared that astrophysics is a racist field. That itself is not unique. We have discussed how professors like Rhode Island professor Erik Loomis have declared math, statistics, and technology as “inherently racist.” However, Gosnell’s reason is that academia continues to focus on “individualism” and “exceptionalism.”
The Colorado College blog reported:
“As an astrophysicist, I’m a product of institutions that are steeped in systemic racism and white supremacy…The [tenets] of white supremacy that show up [in physics] of individualism and exceptionalism and perfectionism… it’s either-or thinking, and there’s…no subtlety, there’s no gray area.”
The attack on individualism and exceptionalism is a growing trend. We previously discussed how “meritocracy” is racist and furthers “white supremacy.”
Professor Natalie Gosnell also objected to “metaphors” that she believes reflect a “violent” and “hypermasculine” bias. With the exception of the big bang theory, it is not clear what the violence inherent in the astrophysics field might be. The article mentions examples of this “violent, hyper-masculine lens” as the “Vampire Star” and “Cannibal Star.”
It is not clear what might be suggested for feminine or non-violent alternatives, but there is a risk in proposing such changes since that could be seen as a play at “exceptionalism” as an academic.

Unaccomplished acacemics trying to get their turn at 15 minutes mention in the Press.
If I was a mystic I would pose that the first time hussein soetoro was elected, albeit not the beginning of the demonic invasion, it was the first time a queen demon was put in charge.
But I’m not a mystic.
These . . . things . . . I call “lefto-xeno-morphs” for leftist – strange – beings are doing all their worst to become non-humans.
Of course, in their worldview they are the new ubermenschen while humans get relegated to the position of untermenschen.
Add gleichschaltung and zersetzung and kadavergehorsamkeit that they relish in and we know how that works and how that ends.
I pose that the taxonomy of the leftoxenomorph should include a moral component and they can then be classified as a sub-human regression out of humanity.
Leftoxenomorphs hate humans and want our suffering and ruin and extinction.
They are not “nutty”, “crazy”, “insane”, “clowns” or anything of the kind.
They are bright enough religious fanatics of a most extreme form of lefto-pukism in its final form of a religious dogma that I call “leftoxenomorphism” You can call it what you want.
It’s out there.
They already own not only Venezuerica, the rotting remains of the late Constitutional Republic the United States of America (July 4th, 1776 – November 3rd, 2020) but also 95% of everything in any way organized they have captured through the Long March Through The Institutions and now skin walk and gatekeep jealously.
This is a religious war of conquest by an evil kind of former humans turned anti-humans that delight in bringing about human ruin and death.
To them humans are a “pathogen” on planet Earth and the planet would be better without us and they are working on a “solution”
A “Final Solution”
Most people still don’t see it. And many see it and turn away in horror and spend the rest of their lives trying to forget what they saw.
The “three wise monkeys” won’t help us none.
Open your eyes and see.
I think you’re on to something there. It is arguable that that end date should be November 6, 2012. The first time Obama was elected, it was excusable. But the second time, America chose him after we knew what he was (radical marxist). That’s the day I knew America was no more.
