'Feminist Health' Course Examines if Diseases Are Biased
A feminist health regimen consists of activities such as: ambling from the couch to the fridge. Repeating "I'm fat but fit" in front of the mirror. Waddling onstage to hijack conservative events. The usual stuff.
It's with this fitness interest in mind that empowered wildebeests are now offering a "feminist health class" at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Take a guess as to what it covers.
Bonus points if you guessed: What is disease patriarchy?
[The class] aims to debate the social construction of disease.
Feminist Health Politics is offered by the school’s department of Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies.
The course explicitly takes the social constructionist approach to health, explaining that students “will examine how health becomes defined, and will question whether health and disease are objectively measured conditions or subjective states.”
Students will also learn how standards of health can be used to oppress racial minority populations, according to the course description.
This self pitying hodgepodge is what passes for higher education these days. Hence why college is becoming a fat no-go (see Study Shows College Enrollment Steadily Dropping. Here's Why...). Turns out not everyone wants to pay thousands of dollars to study underwater basketweaving and sickness sexism.
We've surpassed the age where it was enough to simply laugh at feminist crazy. With more and more stupid creeping into college courses, prospective students should consider fleeing at the sight of any lecturing (wo)manatee. Consider a trade school instead. Opt to learn from the Mike Rowes of the world over the Emma Watsons. It has nothing to do with gender and everything to do with evading feminist stupid. For the sake of your brain cells.
"Body positivity" and health mix about as well as alcohol and keys to a car. More on that below:
