Pómó orðabókin

Fanna þessa orðabók á netinu (á síðu sem heitir fashionable nonsense) Þetta er orðabók pómóa, sálgreinara og pómó femínista:

E=MC2
Probably a sexed equation, the product of a male obssession with speed. 'Is e=mc2 a sexed equation?...Perhaps it is. Let us make the hypothesis that it is insofar as it privileges the speed of light over other speeds that are vitally necessary to us. What seems to me to indicate the possible sexed nature of the equation is not directly its uses by nuclear weapons, rather it is having privileged what goes the fastest...' [Luce Irigaray, Le sujet de la science est-il sexue?]

Empiricism
Absurd notion that observation and measurement are useful in getting to know about things (see positivism).

Evidence1.
Something that can be tailored to the requirements of my arguments.2. A tiresome thing that may conflict with something that I believe.

Fanatic
Someone who strongly believes something I don't believe.

Knowledge
A human convention subject to fashion, so likely to become out of date quickly, like clothes and shoes and hair styles.

Logic
Pestiferous male invention. Probably something to do with imperialism, too.

Measurement
Tedious, pedantic activity engaged in by scientists because they have nothing better to do. They need to get a life.

Narrative
It's all narrative. Get real, of course it is. All that stuff about evidence and logic is just window dressing, we all know that. Just a way for scientists to puff up their pathetic little egos. They're just spinning a tale like everyone else.

Newton
Like Bacon, an advocate of raping Nature. Also a pitiful has-been. Inventor of a pathetic outdated unhip linear kind of mathematics and astronomy-type thing that worked okay for a couple of centuries but has now been completely left behind because during the time that everyone was so fed-up after the 1914-1918 War, the Zeitgeist came up with quantum mechanics, and after that poor old Newton looked very very obsolete indeed. Shows you can never be too careful about keeping up.

Freud
Though he did have some unfortunate ideas about women, he discovered the Unconscious, despite the many people who had pointed out its existence before, so we have to keep paying homage to him.

Reason
Bad, toxic entity, that foolish people use when they ought to use their inner voice, or angels, or intuition, or a gut feeling, or their hearts, or the I Ching.

Scientist1.
Wicked, elitist, narrow-minded member of tiny unelected aristocracy which does not share the beliefs of the great majority of people. "How can metaphysical life [New Age] theories and explanations taken seriously by millions be ignored or excluded by a small group of powerful people called 'scientists'?" [Andrew Ross, Strange Weather]2. A bourgeois, legitimator of capitalist exploitation. "Science is the ultimate legitimator of bourgeois ideology." [Lewontin, Kamin and Rose, Not in our Genes] See Starbucks.3. A dull, plodding, unimaginative person who only knows how to count things; a bore; a geek, a nerd, a swot, a grind.

Self-esteem
What children go to school to learn. The curriculum.






3 ummæli:

Heiða María sagði...

Ég þyrfti að kynna þig fyrir Marín vinkonu. Hún er einmitt feminista-pómó. Og ekki einu sinni vitleysingi ;-)

Kjallararottur sagði...

Það er röklega ómögulegt, að vera pómó en ekki vitleysingur.

baldur sagði...

Mér finns æðislegastur þessi um freud.

Við verðum að virða manninn fyrir það að hafa verið karlremba og að fyrir að benda á fyribæri sem margir voru búnir að benda á á undan honum.

Karlremba sem hefur ekkert nýtt til málanna að leggja. Aðdáunarvert!
