“Philosophy requires reasoning, and women are irrational”

Funniest thing I have heard all week lmaoooo

What is it like to be a woman in philosophy?

I was accepted into a Masters program that did not accept many women. Several of the faculty thought that women had no place in the discipline. I happened to be in a class of almost all women, who were selected by a dissenting group of faculty in an attempt to balance the student population.

During my first year, I was told explicitly by one of my professors that I should not be in a philosophy graduate program since, “Philosophy requires reasoning, and women are irrational.”

The incoming class that followed my group consisted of about 15 students, all but one of whom were male.

Perhaps it’s not surprising that this school did not accept my application into its doctoral program, even though two schools of higher ranking did (thank goodness!).

Never forget, you are a woman, and he, is your husband. Never let your pride, power or position take away from that dynamic. You became one because of the unconditional love you had for one another. When you are with him, you are still a strong and powerful woman, just remember you are HIS strong and powerful woman. Don’t take away you sensitivity and softness towards the man that you love more than anything else…

This was just a friendly reminder, to always be a woman. We are sensual. Just dont be sensual with everyone.
