From Bonald, resident physicist for The Orthosphere:
[T]he thing that irritates me about biologists and anthropologists is that they’re trying to manipulate me rather than teach me. They don’t want me to know things about the predators or cannibals they’re studying because their only goal in communicating with me is political advocacy [...]
Somehow the language of “discrimination” and “prejudice” has leaked into the natural sciences. It’s the same thing with medical scientists and health agencies, as I’ve said before when discussing leprosy. They’re not trying to tell me things I want to know–like how to actually avoid catching the disease. All they’re interested in is curing me of my prejudice, teaching me not to fear or shun lepers, say (no matter how rational such behavior might actually be).
