Delicious LiveJournal Links for 5-11-2009

  • I'd been meaning to write this post myself. Thankfully someone else saved me the trouble.
    (tags: scifi Trek)
  • I want one!
  • Which highlights, amongst other things, that Facebook, Twitter (and Livejournal) are _novelty producers_, and that these will dripfeed you tiny bursts of satisfaction that distract you from concentrating on anything more productive.
  • Screenshots from a forum for those who believe that the Rapture will be here any second now... Funny _and_ scary.
  • The feminist critique of society started when some women systematically looked up at the top of society and saw men everywhere: most world rulers, presidents, prime ministers, most members of Congress and parliaments, most CEOs of major corporations, and so forth â” these are mostly men.

    Seeing all this, the feminists thought, wow, men dominate everything, so society is set up to favor men. It must be great to be a man.

    The mistake in that way of thinking is to look only at the top. If one were to look downward to the bottom of society instead, one finds mostly men there too. Who's in prison, all over the world, as criminals or political prisoners? The population on Death Row has never approached 51% female. Who's homeless? Again, mostly men. Whom does society use for bad or dangerous jobs? US Department of Labor statistics report that 93% of the people killed on the job are men.
