Some politicians, when given large campaign donations from wealthy businesses, organizations, or individuals, they think "This is free, I need to take it, and it's free. And I need to do it now." Now, my brain, being a normal persons brain, I think differently, and say well, it's not...it's not free, there's a cost to this.

I'm a man, and I survived four years by bumming free food from college events.

Another week, another statement from a politician that brings into question his scientific literacy.

If they'd started off the article with "He's a Republican" there wouldn't have been question as to his scientific literacy. Seriously, at this point I just assume all Republicans in office are still at the "four humors" and "four elements" stage of things.

Now, my brain, being a man's brain, sort of thinks differently, because I say, well, it's not - if it's free, is it really free? Because I say, in my brain, there's a cost to this."

so, men ask themselves 2 questions...
can I fark it?
will it cost me?

In this case, he cannot fark it, and it will cost him, so NO.

GOP, stop talking.

Reminds me of this classic:



Women, know your limits

It would seem a better approach to throw one copy apiece of (TFA recommended) "Delusions of Gender, the Real Science Behind Sex Differences," "Pink Brain, Blue Brain," and "Brain Gender" at him.

Ideally, large-print hardback editions.

Do they make Classic Comix versions? Or maybe a Pop-Up Book?

From the other side of the aisle, I hear the conversation being about: free. 'This is free, we need to take it, and it's free. And we need to do it now.'

I'm more outraged by his blatant straw man than his overt sexism.

But it's soooo cute that he reaches for sexism to hide the straw-like nature of the man he built. If only he had added something about minorities, it would have been the Aristotelian ideal of Derp.

"Men are from Mars," to my knowledge (I've never read it) was never meant to be a scientific standard, just a statement on the different ways men and women communicate. My man's brain always cringes whenever I see a Republican use it to justify knuckle-dragging sexism.

(Not defending the book, just pretty sure it doesn't mean what he thinks it means.)

FTFA: "For example, women (again, on average) tend to have a larger hippocampus, which plays a major role in memory, among other functions. Men, on the other hand, tend to have a larger amygdala, which is involved in emotional processing."

Translation: Women forget NOTHING and men are driven to heart attacks from that.

This is what Republicans apparently believe.

Christ what an asshole. They're giving you money to take care of your electorate and all you worry about is how all this health welfare is really killing them? Of course she's wrong, though, she's from Venus!

I think I'm going to go with that next time I want something from Neil Gaiman to be true.

Outside of the Witcher books, that MIGHT be my very favorite piece of prose.
