JudgyBitch: Women make babies, and men make Large Hadron Colliders

Legos for girls: Not a new idea (from a lego ad in the 1980s)
Legos for girls: Not a new idea (from a lego ad in the 1980s)

So our old friend Janet “JudgyBitch” Bloomfield has written a rather silly post on how men are a bunch of STEM geniuses while women are basically designed to make babies. (On average.)

You’ve heard all this nonsense before, I am sure:

Human achievement depends on the tenacity and ingenuity of men, and their willingness to shoot for the moon (or a comet). Our mastery of the human condition, an end to suffering and poverty and disease and destitution requires technology. Water doesn’t magically clean itself, food doesn’t spring forth from the Earth without coaxing (at least not in sufficient amounts to feed all of us), the oceans do not replenish, diseases do not cure themselves and our ability to communicate and connect with each other, from one side of the planet to the other, all depends on technology.

Technology is designed, built, installed, maintained, repaired and operated almost exclusively by men. Without men, we would be living in grass huts, eating mud.

I’ll give her credit for at least suggesting a slightly novel “solution” to women (allegedly) being a bunch of stupid-heads compared to men. And by “novel” I mean “novel” only to MRAs.

Here is what I propose: we socialize girls to be more like men, and more like exceptionally intelligent men, in particular.

As she sees it, that means (among other things) making girls play with legos instead of Barbies (or any other traditionally girly toys), forcing them all to play Dungeons & Dragons (no, really), and requiring that they

study logic and rhetoric and traditional game theory, to sharpen their ability to work through a problem using reason and the empirical method.

Huh. I’m thinking that most of the dudes in the Men’s Rights movement must have slept through that part of their male socialization.

JB’s proposals are weirdly totalitarian, envisioning a mandatory one-size-fits-all approach to education for girls. And the misogyny underlying her glorification of “male” ways of thinking is fairly obvious. Her attempts to challenge traditionally gendered ways of raising girls fall more than a few steps short of feminism.

Sure, feminists have long fought against the pervasive gendering of toys. But they’re also into, you know, kids making choices for themselves. Encouraging girls to play with legos? Great! Forcing all girls to play exclusively with Legos, because you want them to become STEM geniuses? Not so great. Some girls want to play with legos; others prefer dolls. As do some boys.

For what it’s worth, JB describes her proposal as, yes, a “modest proposal,” so it’s not clear if she actually thinks that raising girls the same way as boys is a good idea, or if it’s one akin to eating babies.

Speaking of babies, here’s my favorite line in her post:

[T]he ultimate expression of femininity is a baby, and the ultimate expression of masculinity is the Large Hadron Collider.

Assuming this is true — and Janet Boomfield said it, so it must be! — just imagine what humans could accomplish if men and women worked together.

Yes, I’m talking about the ultimate in technology: the Large Baby Collider.

Oh, wait, we already have one of those; it’s called the Men’s Rights Movement.

But that’s a pretty primitive model. Here’s a prototype for an improved Large Baby Collider. It’s still a long way away from perfect — you may notice that half of the babies have been replaced by dogs — but it’s still a wobbly step in the right direction.

Because of my profession and research work people constantly ask me to help them find information about women engineers. Some years ago I started to point out that they didn’t need me to do this for them, there was this thing called Wikipedia that can classify information like that and we didn’t need to reinvent the wheel. I started a campaign to get people to add links to this page:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Women_in_engineering

I do seem to have lost the battle to call it ‘women engineers’–I hate the ‘women in’ word construction–but at least we’re getting some links; there were only a dozen or so when I started encouraging people to use this page, now we’re at 126.

I was introduced to Fatima al-Fihri at this exhibition:

at the Science Museum in London–it was fascinating, enlightening, and beautifully put together. Not only was the exhibition itself excellent, it was profoundly moving to see Muslim children, particularly Muslim girls, being inspired by their scientific and technological heritage.

Fun facts about that Lego ad: it was the work of a creative director named Judy Lotas, who had two young daughters and wanted the campaign to stress that Legos were for everyone. The children in the ads were asked to play with Legos and were then photographed, in their street clothes, holding whatever they had built. The little girl in this ad is now a doctor.

Sorry, I mean none of that happened because women just make babies and eat dirt all day.

Supposedly women outperform men at language skills. Ergo we shouldn’t bother to teach boys to read because they’ll never be as good at it as girls, and boys should be discouraged from careers and hobbies that require literacy. Books by men should be treated as cute little novelties. Anyone who challenges this should be told, “If men are as smart as women, how come there aren’t any male writers?” over and over no matter how many examples of male writers they come up with.

Er, correction, she was involved with COBOL, one of FORTRAN’s contemporaries. Though since most higher-level programming languages make use of compilers, she does get credit for FORTRAN too, because it wouldn’t be a thing if it weren’t for compilers.

In order to spite Bloomfield, let me tell you a tale about a great female scientist.

Today’s story is about Maria Kirch, nee Winkelmann (1670 – 1720), one of the important early astronomers, back when the field was differentiating itself from astrology.

Winkelmann’s father was a priest of the Lutheran faith who raised her to believe that women were the equals of men in intellectual pursuits, and taught her as much mathematics as he knew. Since women were not permitted to attend Prussian universities, Winkelmann became an observatory assistant in exchange for lessons, working first for Christoph Arnold and later for Gottfried Kirch, whom she married.

The Kirch household must have been an interesting one: some visitors complained that Maria was too visible in the observatory and took too equal a role with her husband. There was also suspicion that a number of Gottfried’s papers were actually hers which he had submitted because she was not literate in Latin, the language of German academia at the time. Most interestingly, they solved the perennial work/family balance issue by training all four of their children as astronomers, who worked as their assistants.

Maria Kirch didn’t just work with her husband, however. She published her own papers on the side in German, concentrating mostly on observations of the sun; but also publishing on whatever happened to take her interest. On 21 April 1702, she spotted the comet now called C1702/H1 and rushed to publish her discovery.

What followed was a national prestige battle. On April 20, two Italian astronomers had observed it; on April 24 a Frenchman, de La Hire, had made the observation too. Each of the three nations claimed it for their own discovery, and Kirch became a Prussian sensation, winning its highest medal for science. Around this time she became a friend and correspondant of Leibnitz and, unusually, of the science-obsessed Peter the Great.

Sadly, Gottfried Kirch died in 1710, and the Berlin Academy of Sciences refused to let Maria take over his membership there; even with Leibnitz’s intervention on her behalf they refused to permit a woman to enter their hallowed halls. As a result, the Kirch family stepped up: their eldest son, Christfried, became the front man and Maria and the three daughters became his “assistants.” With their help, Christfried quickly rose to become the director of the Berlin Observatory, and was smart enough to not try to prevent his mother from continuing to publish her own work on the side.

Sadly Christfried fell under intense political pressure to not have his mother taking such a prominent place in “his” observatory and he was forced to order her to retire, which she did in 1716 with ill grace. She continued amateur work but her publishing largely ceased before her death four years later in 1720.

Christfried Kirch continued to be assisted by his three sisters, but none attained the independent respect that their mother had.

Maria Kirch’s work in her own name is central to our understanding of solar astronomy; she also did some of the pioneering studies of the planet Saturn and made some critical observations of the effects when Saturn and Jupiter pass one another. On the side, she did some excellent weather observations too (possibly when it was too cloudy for astronomy) and of the Northern Lights.

Kirch is also known to have produced several astrological charts for friends and patrons, but it is suspected that she did so with distaste.

Germany continued to press for Kirch to be regarded as the discoverer of comet C1702/H1 until the nineteenth century, when they recognised the Italian team as having made the first observation.

Isn’t socialising girls in a way equal to boys like… a major aspect of Feminism?

I dunno why she thinks lads all learn Rhetoric and Game Theory.
I went to the only school in my district that still teaches Latin, and the subjects of Critical Thinking and Advanced Mathematics were only available to A-level students (and usually only the high achievers). And of course, subjects are taught to pupils of all genders at a co-ed school.

It’s not as if Game Theory really has all that much practical application in the real world. Female-dominated subjects like Psychology and Languages are probably better in terms of being able to understand the world and bend it to your will like a manly man.

Engineers, meanwhile, tend to be the butt of jokes for being notoriously socially inept.

Gender should not get in the way of a well-balanced education, but it’s ridiculous to treat traditionally “masculine” subjects as inherently superior.

Marie Curie was born in a country where women were not allowed to study at that time. Her parents were poor and she made a pact with her sister Bronya. Bronya went to study medicine in France and Maria worked as a governess to pay for her expenses. Years later, Maria started studying science in France while Bronya, who had become a doctor, paid for her sister expenses in turn.

Who said women couldn’t stand up for each other?

I’m currently assessing local schools for my daughter, and I was rather impressed with a single-sex school whose presentation said that one of the major advantages of being single-sex was that it meant that their girls could explore whatever interests they wanted without any fears about gender stereotyping or being ridiculed by the (here nonexistent) boys.

Obviously, I’m not naïve enough to believe that this invariably works that way in practice, but the mere fact that they considered this important enough to bring up in an hour-long presentation was a very positive sign.

Lego friend filled a void that some adult fan (including me) needed, in term of color and theme (being the most people-oriented lego gamme for now, and treating a lot of thing classic city don’t).

I do find important to not say that “friend” lego aren’t true lego or anything. They have differents focus, and while thoses focus in friend could have been done better (and actually, were done better originaly than now, for sale’s sake AFAIK), they are good toys nonetheless in my opinion.

Woah, that article of hers is a mess, she goes from brown nosing Milo Yiannopoulos, to acknowledging discrimination by giving us a synopsis of crime drama The Bletchley Circle, then possibly spins off into satire. What is she trying to say? That encouraging girls to do STEM is ridiculous? Or she trying to make out that it’s actually boys who are being forced to follow a ‘feminized’ education?

So close JB, so close. If only you’d taken your line of reasoning a little further:

– “Men do ALL THE AWESOME”.
– “Women should also be taught to do ALL THE AWESOME”.
– “It’s almost like I’m suggesting that gendered socialization processes may have been holding women back from equal opportunity to achieve in STEM fields”.
– “And that these learned processes can be deconstructed”.
– “You might almost say I’m suggesting that gender and gender roles are social constructs which have privileged men and limited women’s choices.”
– “…feminism…?”

But then the mental gymnastics happen, and it’s back to, “…but most ladybrains aren’t as good as man brains so there”.

Women should not have to fight to be seen as rightfully intelligent (meaning they actually are really smart, not just think they are), and I am heartily glad that aspect of society has changed,

OK, with a little more finesse we could be getting somewhere…

but none of that changes the fact that great genius appears rarely in women, and more importantly, even when women are exceptionally intelligent, they still tend to embrace typically feminine interests. Remember Lauren? She tests extraordinarily high, and likes hair and make-up and wants to be a showgirl. Fair enough, Lauren, but I sincerely wonder how many men with IQs over 160 are interested in acting and dancing?

Niiiiiice zing with the LBC = MRM. If JB called this a modest proposal, she’s almost certainly referencing the infanticidal original, ago probably she is suggesting that having women socialized as men is unthinkable, which is probably why she summed up the post by asserting that men make SCIENCE while women make bebes, i.e. boys rule and girls drool, or some equally sophomorish (rhymes with borish!) quip.

@James Haynes,

No no no, didn’t you know that babies spring fully formed as hommonculi from the make and that woman is just an empty shell where the little rascals grow? Honestly, suggesting that women contribute anything of value at all to child bearing; you’re liable to offend masculine sensibility. We all know how delicate and fragile make egos are; it’s the hormones from making all those hommonculi! So please, be gentle on men, we suffer enough as it is making all the babies and also having to make all of the scientific progress OH WAIT, Rosalind Franklin. Gasp! Marie Curie. Zounds! Heloise. Nooooo! The purity of testosterone-fueled science, all rendered meaningless by filthy menstruation and estrogen. *hissssss* It burns us, Precious! Make it stop!!!

Note: in case it’s not obvious I’m being extremely sarcastic here. There have been HUNDREDS of women in science for hundreds of years. The lead researcher in developing an anti-cancer vaccine prophylaxis at University of Pittsburgh is a woman. Most of the researchers working there are women though there are some men too (notably me for a while back in 2007-2008!).

Aside from the obvious problems, most women have babies whereas most men do not create large hadron colliders. Or even contribute to the creation. I don’t have stats to back it up but I’d guess most people, including men, don’t even work in STEM. So.

@Fnoicby: There were almost 7000 physicists who had input into the design of the LHC, plus uncounted engineers and technicians. Let us assume that the engineers and technicians made up another 7000.

There are 3.5 billion men on the planet. This means that, if I can do maths, 0.0002% of men (one in 500,000) were involved in the building of the LHC. This is a small number, and judging every group by the actions of the most significant 0.0002% is a little unfair. That’s like saying that everyone in Atlanta is the mayor.

Buttercup Q. Skullpants

I feel like some of JB’s core assumptions need to be questioned here, specifically “Technology = good!” and “Technology = the only thing that matters!”

Our mastery of the human condition, an end to suffering and poverty and disease and destitution requires technology.

Technology is only one piece of human advancement. “Mastery of the human condition” also requires aesthetic awareness, spiritual development, empathy, self-sacrifice, negotiation skills, and emotional competence. None of these are the exclusive province of men.

Beyond that, technology isn’t a magical rainbow cure-all. For every problem technology solves, it creates several additional problems, which the “MEN INVENTED IT ALL!” crowd conveniently ignores. For example:

Water doesn’t magically clean itself

It does without the presence of humans. How did that water get dirty in the first place? Technology!

Apparently pollution, environmental degradation, resource depletion, etc. don’t get counted as specfiically male achievements, even though they’re the direct result of these (alleged) XY empire-building impulses. Men get to take all the credit for the good results of technology, but not the blame for the bad side effects?

food doesn’t spring forth from the Earth without coaxing (at least not in sufficient amounts to feed all of us)

Again, a lot of downsides of technology are hidden in that verb “coaxing”…pesticides, antibiotics, GMOs, soil depletion, erosion, diminishing biodiversity, effects on human health from industrial agriculture. Yay for temporarily being able to support seven billion people on the planet, but maybe we shouldn’t be mindlessly cheerleading unchecked growth?

the oceans do not replenish

Are we talking fish here? How did the fish stocks get depleted in the first place? Who depleted them? According to JB’s logic, it’s not women out there overfishing and manufacturing a mountain of throwaway plastics that kill marine life. Seems a little disingenuous to take credit for “solving” a problem you created in the first place.

Fair enough, Lauren, but I sincerely wonder how many men with IQs over 160 are interested in acting and dancing?

How many men with IQs over 160 feel social pressure to hide their abilities in order to feel worthwhile and dateable? Because that’s exactly what happens to young girls who are interested in math and science. Girls who are interested in STEM get an extra layer of bullying (reinforced by media stereotypes) that targets their femininity. It intensifies right as they hit puberty. Why are we surprised that some girls decide the relentless taunting and ostracism isn’t worth it, and why is that being presented as evidence that women are naturally inferior at STEM?

I know what I want judgybitch’s relationship with LEGOs to be, and it ain’t forcing girls to play with them.

“Are we talking fish here?”

Oh, are we?? Please?

Most fish are quite happy to lay 100+ eggs in a go and while LOTS of the newly hatched ones get eaten by other fish the bigger problem is most definitely that we just don’t give the ones that can live decades upon decades time to mature and lay the literally thousands of eggs fish can lay in their lifetimes. Fuck, my cories lay 50~ a go and since I’m not trying to breed them I just leave them be, even after the tetras eat the eggs, the little ones risk the filter and manage to find food (both not exactly a natural problem), I end up with 10~ survivors. Like, I don’t want more (I have tank space but come on, how many catfish can one person need?!) but I’m debating introducing more since I’m looking at 3rd gen inbreeding when this batch matures!

So yes, fish populations restock themselves, most species quite readily, and some we haven’t managed to breed in captivity at all — my loaches are wild caught, Puff too, but loaches rarely reach 10 in captivity and given their sizes probably live at least twice that in the wild where they apparently breed readily since they’re not threatened despite being popular aquarium residents.

Is their IQs important however ? I mean, it’s a flawed and partial way to measure intelligence. Being an actor is by itself something that need intelligence (you have to be both able to understand how someone else mind work, and be able to guess enough of the expectation of other to fool them), so I would treat them being good actor and great at human relation (another rather task who generally require intelligence) as sufficent proof that they have above average intelligence.

I guess a degree and/or high IQ remind that people don’t have to be utterly inept at everything social to be good at something else, and that in fact most people are skilled in several things, including social skills, because regardless of you being Einstein, Madonna, or Obama, you can’t get far without being at least good with peoples.

I wonder if the stereotype of “real savants” being socially inept isn’t just the consequence of knowledge being seen as masculine, and social behavior being seen as feminine.

Brian May originally did a maths degree. He later started a PHD but put that on hold when he got into music.

He actually completed his PHD a few years ago. It’s about Zodiacal Light, the glow caused by sunlight hitting dust particles.

One of the nicest things about Brian wad that, when he heard his friend Patrick Moore was having money trouble, he bought Patrick’s house for him so he’d always have somewhere to live.

It was Patrick who actually did work for NASA. He chose the spots for the Moon landings. He didn’t charge though, which might explain his financial difficulties.
