The Feminist War on Science

“In This House, We Believe: Black Lives Matter, Women’s Rights Are Human Rights, No Human Is Illegal, Science Is Real, Love is Love, Kindness Is Everything.” These are the words plastered on many signs that dot the landscape of lawns across America, but especially in and around liberal enclaves. It is interesting to note that Truth, of all things, is left off of the sign.

The statement that “Science is Real” is the most puzzling when you think about it, given the political message that the sign, as a whole, entails. The obvious intent of that statement concerns itself with global warming and nothing other than that. Fine. Except that many of these people who state that they believe science is real don’t really believe science is real.

If science is real then why don’t liberals embrace what any high school student learns in Biology 101: human chromosomes come in binaries, XX or XY? The answer is obvious—because they don’t really believe science is real unless it furthers a particular liberal battle cry. When science conflicts with the liberal agenda it is disregarded as “fake.” After all, Yale just had a lecture series entitled “Bye-Bye Binary: Rewriting Histories of Non-Normative Gender.”

When studying feminist “philosophy” one can identify two particular strands (among others) that stand out. The earliest strand is so-called “first wave feminism” which centered upon increasing women’s opportunity for employment, the right to vote, and increased or equal pay for women. The second strand, beginning with “second wave feminism” and spawning a myriad of other waves, took a far different approach to the cause of women’s rights.
