We have all heard in the news how NASA’s New Horizons probe has reached Pluto. This is momentous occasion and an amazing achievement in space exploration. That means feminists will attack it just like we saw with Matt Taylor (and Tim Hunt). Since feminists don’t have the excuse of a shirt this time, they have to lie like they did with Tim Hunt. Since there is no opportunity to lie about a single male scientist this time, feminists are attacking NASA like in this article at The Good Mangina Project:
However, for nearly a decade—and longer—America has invested what I would is assume less than half of NASA’s budget on modernizing public education and recreation in the inner-cities.
Spending more dollars on exploring solar-systems than improving school systems is cause for gross critique, not mass celebration.
I don’t applaud America for what my fellow countrymen perceive is a milestone. To the contrary, I shame this rich nation for its skewed priorities. The type of decision making that says unseen space is more valued than an occupied place is not one that deserves respect nor admiration.
And though access to quality public education ranks high on my set of values, which is why I referred to it early on in this piece, other social issues—like veterans’ quality of life, diversity in the technology and news industry, and homelessness—also weigh on me deeply.
