    I assumed it was from a GOP hearing on Women's Health.

    That didn't seem real at all but... f it. I choose to believe that's correct.

    No fun. When the myth becomes the legend, print the legend.

    That, and I believe they also had some longstanding legal problems with Universal, who trademarked the name "quidditch" years ago when they opened the Potter theme park.

    My softball team played against a team with a trans woman last night with no issue. Our co-ed league rules require an even number of men and women on the field (or if you're short handed you can be off by 1), and that your line up bat boy-girl-boy-girl.

    I'm hoping we get to the day where she doesn't feel the need to tell the other coach/team that they have a transgender woman on the team before the game starts, but I'm guessing that currently it's the best way to avoid questions and arguments about adhering our co-ed rules.

    A guide like this shouldn't even be necessary, but here we are.

    Happened upon discussion of the ethics of care while listening to a history of political philosophy. There are some very interesting points raised by it. Some key empirical claims:

    + Conducted research review of psychologists' list of characteristics of "a psychologically well adjusted human being." Compared psychologists' list of characteristics of the stages of healthy psychological development of boys and girls. The former list matched the boys' list.

    + Conducted experimental studies of how children respond to typical ethical thought experiments, e.g. "If X has a sick child and cannot afford the medicine that will save them, is it just for X to steal the medicine from a pharmacy?" Found that boys tended to argue the question on traditional utilitarian and deontological grounds, pretty much as one would in a college philosophy class. Girls on the other hand approached the problem very differently, bringing in many unforeseen but connected consequences. For example, girls would argue things like "if X is arrested, who will take care of their child then?" Concluded that girls tend to place actions within a complex social context while boys tend to be reductionist and solve ethical problems like logical or mathematical puzzles, breaking them into self-contained components and then aggregating the Boolean results of those evaluations into a calculated solution.

    The implication is that women have ethical understandings which are erased from public discourse or considered anomalous or beside the point, and this is a hidden consequence of patriarchal and misogynistic culture. Really interesting.

    BTW, Gilligan is simultaneously attacked by the Right ("durr she hates boys durr") but also, potentially legitimately, from the Left, as essentialist (the idea that there are fundamental differences between genders, though I don't see this as a necessary critique because she could as easily be talking about how we raise boys and girls). She's also not a lesbian which makes her unpopular in Gender Studies circles.

    Worth a look.
