Heads up October 12, 2005

Posted by Winter in junk science.

Go read this excellent article by Natasha Walter in the Guardian on the wests recent love affair with biological determinism. That biology is increasingly being used to “put women back in their place” and that Medling with nature will “end in tears” is something that I believe should really be of concern to feminists. I’m going to try and think of ways that we could try and counter this trend, any ideas?

Go read this, she puts everything so much more articulately than I could. Thanks to Kameron Hurley at Brutal Women for the tip.
