I have decided that the theme on the blog this week will be the feminist war on space exploration because feminists are constantly attacking space exploration from so many angles. A feminist in the magazine, Scientific American, attacked space exploration as being excessively male (and white and American). Feminists attack space scientists like Dr. Matt Talyor who successfully accomplish new things like landing a probe on a comet over the most trivial of reasons such as his attire. Feminist website, The Good Men Project, outright lied about NASA’s budget effectively accusing NASA of eating up most of the federal budget. Feminists have also made space out to be a place where women will get raped. Feminists have attacked Elon Musk many times. (I will write about that later this week.) Feminists have attacked the plaque that was put on the Pioneer 10 probe for “having a man raise his hand in a very manly fashion”:
The plaque shows a man raising his hand in a very manly fashion while a woman stands behind him, appearing all meek and submissive
Here is the Pioneer 10 plaque where a man is being very manly:
And feminist attacks on space exploration aren’t limited to what actually happens. Feminists have Interstellar, a movie where thanks to space exploration humanity is saved from a dying Earth, as “aggressively masculine”. They also said that the spaceship in Interstellar was an extension of the penis.
Why do feminists attack space exploration? The main reason is that space exploration has nothing specifically to do with women. As we know between 70% to 80% of government spending is a transfer from men to women. Money spent by governments on space exploration is money not spent on women. It doesn’t matter that the amount of money spent on space exploration (both by government and privately) is infinitesimal compared to the amount of money spent on women. Feminists are greedy and want it all. Attacking space exploration is also an extension of feminist attacks on science such as by Sandra Harding who called Newton’s Principia Mathematica a rape manual. Space exploration is also very nerdy, and feminists hate nerds as we see with things like #GamerGate.
Something to consider with nerds and space exploration is that space exploration is a way to escape Earth. In the last several decades, nerds went off on their own and created Silicon Valley and the modern tech industry. Feminists do not want to see that happen again with space exploration, especially since if nerds move to Mars (or elsewhere in space), they will be out of the reach of feminists.
