Math is manual labor for the mind

Math is manual labor for the mind in a way that reading and writing aren’t. Since education pedagogy is loaded up with math-hating women, and got that way because math is simply more masculine and reveals obvious benefits from drilling compared to reading and writing (trash upon trash), we have all kinds of excuse making and dismissal of important male labor in providing things like calculators and code that thinks for you.

  1. I have a hard time understanding how education has taken this trajectory.

    For decades, the US has been criticized for lagging behind in math and science test scores compared to other countries. Yet, math is bad now? I want to ask these people, if math is “bad” how do they expect us to possibly compete?

  2. Reblogged this on Reading in Between the Life… and commented:

    This short post is a highly insightful observation about the trajectory of education and its increasing feminization. This is particularly true as we watch the academic establishment dismantle math instruction in the name of “diversity, equity, and inclusion”.
