Update on Gender Knot Post Due Today
I promised you the first post on The Gender Knot today, and I still plan to get it up today if at all possible. My plan had been to work on it Monday and Tuesday but most of those days I was plagued with headache and it was difficult to concentrate on writing. So, it’s not done yet.
Please note Chapter 1 is available online here.
In the meantime, perhaps you’d like to listen to fellow Scienceblogger Pal MD’s latest Palcast, The Kitchen Edition, which relates to my post On Being A Patient.
Or maybe you’d like to read this post by Sheril Kirshenbaum at The Intersection and just puke, puke, puke on John Rushton’s shoes. Be sure to enjoy Zen Faulkes’ comment with the perfect book review for Mr. Rushton, and then my buddy Pal MD again who notes, quite rightly, that Rushton is “not even wrong”.
Or maybe you’d just like to sit and quietly contemplate this: The whole Susan Boyle thing – is “ZOMFG the homely old ladee can SING!” the celebrity-land equivalent to Science-land’s “ZOMFG, look, the pretty young girl does skienz!” ????
All three items should be as good a prep as any to diving into the The Gender Knot.
