Don’t Ignore Half your Population

If it were customary to send daughters to school like sons, and if they were then taught the natural sciences, they would learn as thoroughly and understand the subtleties of all the arts and sciences as well as sons. And by chance there happen to be such women, for, as I touched on before, just as women have more delicate bodies than men, weaker and less able to perform many tasks, so do they have minds that are freer and sharper whenever they apply themselves.

- Christine de Pizan (1364–1440)

Don’t Ignore Half your Population

Inspired by Christine de Pizan (1364–1440)’s quote, “If it were customary to send daughters to school like sons, and if they were then taught the natural sciences, they would learn as thoroughly and understand the subtleties of all the arts and sciences as well as sons. And by chance there happen to be such women, for, as I touched on before, just as women have more delicate bodies than men, weaker and less able to perform many tasks, so do they have minds that are freer and sharper whenever they apply themselves.” The titled responsion is “Don’t Ignore Half your Population”. What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?

Pizan’s perspective almost has a ring of Skinner’s Behaviourism underlying her blank slate of female potentiality. Although the genetic difference are negligible we should not be dismissive of their existence. In the end, femalism empowers more than half our civilization, it civilizes it at the same time. Megalomaniacal despots and dictators of oppressive dogma need not apply!

I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.

Inspired by T.S. Eliot (1888–1965)’s quote, “I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.” The titled responsion is a little insight into how we brew the french press in the morning. By the end of the day we are all decaf!

A beneign addiction? Perhaps. Regardless, the staple of many an morning discussion, mid afternoon pickme up or evening comfort our coffee keeps us going. I would like to say that I couldn’t live without it but that we know is only a half truth. Pseudo you say and I would put forth a half ass response to match the sentiment of the cleverness. The donut is just added sugar and a möbius of sorts.
