National Review's Kat Timpf gets her kicks from a gender-studies type who suggests, in Minnesota Review, that Newtonian physics leads to an excess of classification.
Personally, whenever I think about oppression, the very first thing that comes to my mind is: “Damn it Isaac Newton! This is all your fault!” I’m just glad someone is finally writing about it. Maybe someday we can take it a step further, and replace all lessons on Newton in our schools with lessons on quantum feminisms. Ah, yes. Then, and only then, will our nation be truly great.
Perhaps, though, intersectionality is a fad, soon to go to the stacks the way representative agents and enlightened social planners did in economics.
