“feminist philosopher interested in social justice,”

Sorry, but I can't take anyone who teaches 'social justice' seriously.

Also she has green hair.

David

Also she has green hair.

Well, this week, at least. Though to be fair, it’s a relatively subtle shade of green. It could almost be natural.

Tom

Also, calling them boys isn't likely to win them over. Should a male TA refer to the girls he teaches there would no doubt be vapours, followed by demands for expulsion.

The hair colour is a nice touch and very thoughtful on Ms. Edell's part; much like the colourful blue-ringed octopus, or the rattles on a rattlesnake, she's helpfully warning people that she's dangerous and should be avoided.

David

Quite.

Bill Peschel

Maybe, and I'm just spitballing here, maybe she's being challenged because she's not that good a teacher.

I'll go sit in the corner now.

Microbillionaire

This response to the 78 cents nonsense is not a precise figure, but it's gotten stuck in my head because it's snappy and memorable, so it might be useful to someone: "(that's because) Men work 78 minutes for every hour women work."

David

Farnsworth M Muldoon

More comfortable in "higher education" than the workforce. OK, that rather speaks volumes in of itself, but I believe she is rather oblivious to what she actually said.

I still feel silenced in a class of men. I feel like the boys I teach don’t take me as seriously as they would a male TA.

Unless it is a mandatory class (if they still have them) there would only be two types of men in her classes 1) those looking for an easy A and some easy pickin' shaboinking with the females in the class, and 2) male SJWs who would hardly be threatening. Unless her classes are filled with type 1 (which I doubt), I expect she is off on another histrionic jag, again making up problems where none exist. Because victim.

While I also struggle with imposter [sic] syndrome, these feelings come from being in a setting that was not created for women to be included.

Right, feminist angry studies were not created for women to be included. I'd also "struggle" with feeling like an impostor if I thought like that and claimed to be an academic.

Daniel Ream

Maybe, and I'm just spitballing here, maybe she's being challenged because she's not that good a teacher.

Undergrads can smell weakness and insecurity and will torment a TA or junior prof that displays it. It's part of being away from home for the first time and trying to find their place in the world, and exerting their will on others in an adolescent way.

This caricature seems to exude insecurity. I'm not surprised they're giving her a hard time.

Tim Newman

Those type of glasses have become as useful an indicator as cats-eyes.

David

This caricature seems to exude insecurity. I’m not surprised they’re giving her a hard time.

Which reminds me of a secondary school biology lesson, in which we had a substitute teacher who, unlike our regular biology teacher, was visibly nervous and struggling to assert her presence. Within seconds, the livelier members of the class had identified her as prey and the half-whispered mockery began. Inevitably, and very quickly, the muttering and tittering escalated in both frequency and volume, which only undermined any remaining poise and self-possession. Maybe five minutes in, there was one comically unconvincing threat of detention, which only prompted outright laughter, and then paper planes started flying across the room. In a fit of exasperation, the unfortunate teacher turned to pull down a rolling projector screen to begin her slideshow, only for the whole thing to come detached from the wall.

I don’t think she was ever seen at the school again.

Y. Knott

Please - she did have nice legs.

I suspect the actual statistic is women take 78 cents of every dollar a man earns.

For crying out loud. Women either outnumber or out-privilege men in every major aspect of life, statistically and by popular recognition.

Has there ever been a woman-cave in the history of the domicile? A doghouse? Sleeping on the couch? The female basement or garage? How about a presumption of the fruits of divorce (and even divorce as a male-enriching strategy so pervasive it's a virtual term of practical law)?

Didn't think so. Women outnumber men, enjoy a net flow of billions of private dollars as a function of their sex, and outlive them, as if to make up for it all.

Bitch feels.

dicentra

she suffers from “imposter syndrome”

One of the managers on the software project I work on is a woman. She started out as a coder and then went into management. As far as I can tell, she knows her stuff. I always go to her for questions about how the guts work, as opposed to questions about hardware and scheduling and other generalities, which I take to the other manager (male), because that is his area of emphasis.

She told me that she suffers from "impostor syndrome," and she has felt the effects of being a lone woman in a male-dominated field. I haven't got any details on that, but I suspect that some of what she encountered was that she was actually treated like one of the guys, and that can be off-putting to women.

Why? Because guys razz each other using put-downs. If you screw up, they jeer at you and make fun of your lame skills. Among guys, it's all in fun, but when a girl gets it, it feels like a genuine insult. (They occasionally do it to me.)

For example, they used to put an ugly doll's head on the desk of the person whose code check-in broke the build that day. I reckon they'd still do it if they could find the head.

Most guys instinctively treat women differently than "the guys," but if she's right there in their crib, doing what they do, they'll go ahead and include her in the insults.

It's subtle but it's there, and women process the insults differently than guys do.

OTOH, she doesn't have a bold personality, so they could have walked all over her. The last thing they could accuse he of is being a bitch, because she's not harsh at all.

One thing I know bugs her: she works while her husband (a fiction writer) works from home, thus staying with the kids. Sometimes eyebrows get raised at this role-reversal, and she hates that like crazy. Not to mention that she undoubtedly out-earns her husband something considerable and it might be a sore spot sometimes.

Also, if Ms. Edell speaks like a teenaged Valley Girl (an unfortunate accent that has taken over an entire swath of the female population) it's Just Plain Hard to take her seriously.

DICTION NOW!

Heh. Guys barometer or prove friendship by the degree and alacrity of their personal put-downs, where more equals more. It's a self-righting function that keeps civilization loosely together.

I've never done it to or with women. Just can't. The only exception is the daughter, who gives as good as she gets. Still, it's just not right and I regret forgetting the distinction from time to time.

R. Sherman

Which reminds me of a secondary school biology lesson, in which we had a substitute teacher who, unlike our regular biology teacher, was visibly nervous and struggling to assert her presence.

Reminds me of fourth grade, when we had a very young and somewhat rotund substitute one day. She proceeded to introduce herself and then attempted to segue into the day's activities. Sadly, things went off the rails rather quickly when one of class's recidivist miscreants stood up and said, "Miss 'Jones,' let's lose some weight."

As for the "Shaming Carousel," I keep flashing on the "renewal" scene from Logan's Run with all of us screaming "Shame! Shame!" while the offenders float up to the ceiling and are zapped by giant lasers.

David

I keep flashing on the “renewal” scene from Logan’s Run

The principle is broadly similar.

Watcher

dicentra, I believe there's more than a bit of truth in: "Men abuse each other, but don't really mean it; women are nice to each other and also don't really mean it."

@Jen: "Also she has green hair."

She should be careful. That can be dangerous:

My experience with sexism in academia has been that I am more often questioned about my knowledge and ability by male peers people sometimes notice that I'm not a very good teacher.

Sporkatus

Do I dare ask what field is in question? I see no mention made in Mx. Edell's excerpted sentences, which makes me wonder if it's not a... what's the word, serious one.

Of course, even if it is, there are risks. I had an academically fairly bright lady in my engineering final project section, who unfortunately had absolutely zero knack for the function of machinery and little curiosity in the working of things... constantly on the edge of argument about things she didn't understand. Not because she was a woman, but she didn't *get* it, and had doubtless been fast-tracked in the field for gender bonafides of all those involved. One or two such experiences - the soft bigotry of low expectations being what they are - and no shock should be expected that there are those who won't take a woman seriously.

Most guys instinctively treat women differently than "the guys," but if she's right there in their crib, doing what they do, they'll go ahead and include her in the insults.

I have a female friend who only now is sort of beginning to understand this. My unfortunate tendency to include her in razzing has preserved more distance than I'd otherwise intend.

Sporkatus

I'd read the article to see if Mx. Edell mentions her field in a Sentence Not Of Excerpt, but as Bartleby, "I would prefer not to".

pst314

"much like the colourful blue-ringed octopus"

Beat me to it.
Will she exhibit another defensive behavior by, when challenged, disappearing in a cloud of ink?

JJM

"...gender minorities like women."

Yes, they're sometimes only 49 percent of a given population group.

Besides, if "gender" is no longer biologically determined, who the hell knows what the stats are?

We are now whatever we say we are: this week a woman, next week a man, the week after a transgendered thingummy.

For example, they used to put an ugly doll's head on the desk of the person whose code check-in broke the build that day.

Amateurs. We put that **** on a 60" TV.

I know in my experience in software engineering, there is a very strong "code quality talks, bull**** walks" mentality. If you don't know what you're doing or if you make exaggerated claims about your ability or your code, you will get savaged in front of your peers. It can be very offputting for people not used to the borderline-Asperger's lack of empathy.

She tried to calm him down, but he replied, ‘No, I am not OK, you are a Jedi Knight!’ and hit her across the face with a bottle of vodka.

...the Lords of the Sith are not recruiting quality like they used to.

He admitted he was on his second bottle of vodka that day, and had smoked Spice which a friend had given him.

Ah, there's the problem; he's clearly confused the Jedi with the Bene Gesserit. Easy mistake to make.

I think anyone who teaches will suffer from Imposter Syndrome, at least for a while. Even when experienced as a teacher, having to teach a new topic will put you in a situation of not knowing as much as you would like. Most of us get over it, especially if we realise how common it is.

and [she] struggles to sound confident and knowledgeable when voicing her thoughts in public.

That's not Imposter Syndrome. The whole point of IS is that act like an expert, which makes you feel bad because you are not sure that you are.

Inability to sound confident can be any mix of shyness, lack of actual knowledge or lack of experience.

Teachers usually get over any shyness and gain experience quite quickly. If you are struggling to sound confident and knowledgeable after some time at it, the likely explanation is that you don't know your stuff well enough.

Barb the Evil Genius

My 18 year old daughter has been playing Pathfinder (a game like Dungeons and Dragons) for about three years now with a group that includes her dad. She's learned the give and take of how guys razz each other. I never realized until now how beneficial that might be if she gets a job in a male-dominated field

Jim Whyte

Aposematism...bright colours warning of toxicity.

Seems to me that explains Partick Thistle's uniforms.

Our admin at work just had her hair done in a vibrant pink, just for something different. I still take her much more seriously than she takes herself, which I hope is pleasant for both of us. The difference between her and Ms. Edell may distill down to what geos call "competency contrast".

Dicentra's identified something feminism is unable to - or finds difficult (because it involves acknowledging men are different from women).

I'm not sure whether it can be a cause of "impostor syndrome" because that happens in a lot of professions, not all male dominated at all.

But certainly it's a dynamic in many workplaces that have been traditionally male which women find themselves in now. And the feminist response is to carry on with the revolution: these men are not being inclusive, the workplace culture has to change, blah blah blah.

There is usually little to no acknowledgment of the fact that maybe, just maybe, the woman might be processing the same thing in a different way to a man.

(Incidentally not all guys do this stuff either. I tend to be introverted and though I enjoy jokes like that I tend not to incur them or participate in them much either, and as I result I don't fit much in those environments either.)

David

As long as we understand that wasn’t actually a typo, obviously, but a test of observation skills.

Celia Edell is a Contributing Vlogger for Everyday Feminism, a freelance writer, and feminist philosopher. She holds a Masters degree in Philosophy from the University of Sheffield in England and is currently doing her PhD in Philosophy at McGill University in Montreal. Her interests include critical race theory, mental health awareness, and bad made-for-TV movies.

As noted in the earlier thread, there’s something faintly saddening about someone who’s spent a fortune and years of her life on a bag of degrees in philosophy, but hasn’t yet realised that “critical race theory” is appalling hokum, a ludicrous con. Something a sane and honest person would detect in an afternoon.

Regarding imposter syndrome, I suppose it may be worth considering the extent to which academic philosophy has been politicised and annexed by the left, such that the ludicrous Nina Power is employed to teach it, and such that “critical race theory” is deemed intellectually respectable. If a person’s career is to some extent dependent on signalling their possession of the approved political views – and Ms Edell’s are almost exactly what you’d expect – then problems will arise, especially if that signalling overrides rigour and expectations of evidence. You may score Career-Advancing Lefty Points by claiming that women are paid less than men for doing exactly the same work, and that women are “a gender minority,” even in environments where the reverse is obviously true; but such repeated dissonance with reality seems likely to exacerbate any feelings of fraudulence.

Hal

Incidentally not all guys do this stuff either.

I had one work environment with a pair of not too bright, and me, where their insistent form of entertainment involved screaming . . . oh . . . interpersonal commentary. No, that's not resorting to a euphemism, they just really hadn't mastered English as a first language. Therefore, for awhile one of 'em would lob some comment attempting to be in my direction, and I would matter of factly turn and verbally slice 'im off at the ankles, to the great amusement of the other, and then they'd trade off.

After awhile the general consensus was that of the three of us, I was the one with a command of communication---and quite bored with the situation---, where they finally just kept sniping only at each other, leaving me out of it and quite contentedly able to just ignore 'em . . .

---There was a truck driver making a delivery one day, who asked what all the bellowing from the other end of the building was all about. I informed him that the other two had started into a . . . discussion . . . of which was more superior, country music, or rap. As I recall, the driver didn't really have anything to say in reply, simply his expression was utterly eloquent.

David

As Christina Hoff Sommers noted recently,

For activists committed to the doctrine of intersectionality, universities have to be seen as racist, sexist, violent institutions. The theory demands it. In fact, our institutions of higher learning are among the least bigoted or violent places on Earth. To maintain the theory, activists stretch the meanings of words beyond comprehension.

And coincidentally, Ms Edell’s alleged personal experience of sexism is oddly vague and subjective, and never actually specified. No particular examples are given, not even one, and so we can’t determine for ourselves how credible her complaint might be, assuming her description were remotely accurate. Instead, we’re expected to take it on trust, which, all things considered, seems rather foolish. And as Ms Edell inhabits the Clown Quarter of academia, where lefties dominate, are we to assume that this crushingly oppressive sexism is coming from other lefties?

Matt G

"gender minority"

Minority?! Oh ffs. Ms Edell has evidently switched 'unmerited self-pity mode' firmly on!

Indeed, such breathtaking, tragicomic delusion almost makes the flat earth'ers of antiquity look mildly rational by comparison.

Incredible yet conversely unsurprising. Especially in this reality denialism infused age.

Lancastrian Oik

"As noted in the earlier thread, there’s something faintly saddening about someone who’s spent a fortune and years of her life on a bag of degrees in philosophy, but hasn’t yet realised that “critical race theory” is appalling hokum, a ludicrous con".

My guess is that Ms. Edell's "master's" is one that was taught as a series of modules, with a short dissertation required to get over the line, and therefore was heavily biased towards Angry Studies™ rather than rooted in rigorous philosophical analysis, and I'd also bet my house that hermeneutics was the overall winner when it came to choosing a methodology.

Hunter S. Thompson once mischievously attributed a Herman Melville quote to Art Linkletter: "Genius round the world stands hand in hand, and one shock of recognition runs the whole circle 'round". Something analogous happened here, hence the Ph.D in Montreal.

"Something a sane and honest person would detect in an afternoon".

An afternoon (more likely several months) spent getting to grips with, say, the Critique of Pure Reason would surely make it clear to Edell & co. that they are embroiled in a scam. But, as is often pointed out here, most of these bozos just aren't good enough to engage in a bit of intellectual heavy lifting in the first place, which is why Angry Studies™.

R. Sherman

Ms Edell’s alleged personal experience of sexism is oddly vague and subjective, and never actually specified.

Of course. We live in an age where one's personal narrative and experience is the supreme authority. No one is allowed to question bold assertions of oppression and identity because the worst thing in the world is "invalidating" any individual's insular reality.

David

heavily biased towards Angry Studies™ rather than rooted in rigorous philosophical analysis,

Hard to say. But the feigned victimhood and identitarian posturing don’t seem to impede career progress among such people, even when they entail regurgitating obvious falsehoods. I was reminded of Nina Power, a senior lecturer in philosophy, who describes student riots and opportunist vandalism as “uplifting” and grumbles about “white males discussing formal logic,” and then repeatedly makes pronouncements with no basis in fact or any discernible kind of reasoning. Having read her essays and Guardian articles, where so much is asserted and nothing is established, I’m inclined to wonder what her classes must be like.

Barb the Evil Genius

I think you could follow a line from Marx via Freud and the Frankfurt School up to the Sixties 'Counter Culture' nonsense right to 21st Century Schizoid Man Feminism.

David

Dr Power is a fairly good example of how egalitarian dogma is intellectually corrosive. Apparently, the notion that “everyone is equally intelligent” is something to be “presupposed,” by which she means - and contrary to a century of IQ testing and the everyday experience of pretty much everyone - assumed as fact. Rather than rethink her assumptions on this matter, reality must be denied, regardless of the rhetorical contortion that involves. She also rails against any cuts in public funding of the humanities, while telling us that she and her peers no longer need to be knowledgeable or competent in any conventional sense. Which isn’t perhaps the best incentive to publicly fund more leftwing philosophers.

And this, remember, is a professional educator.

" social justice" in this day and age means social IN-justice for white males.

Those "social justice warriors" only care to make things better for women, gays, immigrants/refugees/illegals and colored people.

Their heavily brainwashed minds can not conceive that many white men also suffer ( especially those who have been financially raped in divorce court...and even more those who's ex wife lied about domestic violence to punish even more the ex husband and keep him from seeing his own children), social justice warriors can not see that not all white men are billionaires and ultra privileged.

Injustices against white males are seen as social justice victories in the eyes of those seriously brainwashed dysfunctional dangerous leftoids.

I posted this on another site recently in relation to a member of the Sisters of Intolerance [Australian chapter]:

"Some years ago when I was working in the Victorian Public Service [Disability Welfare Section] as a behavioural specialist some woman, presumably one of the Sisters, posted a notice in the office: “Womanhood’s 10 Rules for [managing] Men”. The last rule read: “If any man learns any of the above 9 rules all rules are null and void and the rules will be changed.” That Feminists are confused is a given. They behave much like petulant toddlers, who, given what they want, then tantrum because they wanted to obtain it all themselves just to prove they could."

I had several women in my Engineering class and every one of them, including the ditzy redhed, was brilliant

The trouble was, she wasn't stupid in any meaningful way. Academically, sharper than me, and an eager learner. BUT, she was somehow in a mechanical engineering program with no real familiarity or facility with machines, and seemingly little interest in obtaining them. I remain baffled how or why she was in the program and not another in which she might have had interest, other than having the suspicion she was recruited to it.

Of course, there were two other ladies in the program I didn't get to know as well, both quite sharp in it - one with a bit of an Aspergers stereotype social set and the other quite charming, both perfectly competent. But - confirmation bias is a far easier thing to set than to remove, and a system which sets out to create cautionary tales like that has many issues.

the levels of vitriol and irrelevance displayed by people who prefer different versions of D&D.

Some of which people end up preferring a given version so strongly despite its faults that they set out to houserule the faults away and end up somewhere else entirely. Pathfinder for the mild case, Palladium games for the mad case.
