"My faculty (UK university) suggested turning all toilets into unisex. In a meeting with other managers I asked if they had done an equality impact assessment. I was thinking about ensuring adequate provision for women and people with disability... pic.twitter.com/Xr76OezRiA

Compare these two images @mattyglesias just linked. If we admit to top schools just on the basis of SAT scores, it'd cut the number of kids from the top income quintile by about half. Maybe that's why colleges don't want to do it? pic.twitter.com/MEL4rWsn5u

'Corbyn promised massive government spending and borrowing'. What the hell is Nick Robinson talking about. The government borrowed £227.6 Billion more to December. The sky did not fall in. The cost of the 2017 manifesto was £48.6 Billion and 2019, £82.9. #r4today

'We have "women and non binary seminars", "women and non binary" study groups. There are no "Men and Non binary" groups, of course. Men are the default and everything else just goes into “other”.' pic.twitter.com/aIy5RjHp43

“The modern conservative is...engaged in one of man’s oldest, best financed, most applauded, and, on the whole, least successful exercises in moral philosophy...the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.”

It is often assumed that scientists do not pay attention to philosophy of science. This is just not true. This paper just out in Synthese examines longitudinally which domains of science cite philosophy of science papers: https://t.co/MqGB1e4CTZ #philsci #bibliometrics #citations pic.twitter.com/ZZbaMb2I7b

So I've been stuck on the camera policy for my Zoom classes. I totally get the worries about student privacy and invasiveness. But I also know that my teaching gets radically worse when I'm facing mostly all black squares. So this time, I tried complete honesty.

"I never thought we would be at a place where, if you believe that sex is an axis of oppression, you are systematically excluded from academia. But that is where we are. It's more extreme that I could have imagined before I began... pic.twitter.com/ROm52EEp38

Qu’est-ce que l’islamogauchisme ?
▶️L’islam est la religion des opprimés
▶️Les musulmans opprimés sont la nouvelle force révolutionnaire pour combattre le capitalisme et la démocratie bourgeoise
▶️Les attentats sont une légitime défense face à l’impérialisme occidental
Ça existe

...I didn’t even know about GRA debate. Anyway I was shouted down for being transphobic. The loos are now unisex and as I expected the presence of urinals means that women now have fewer toilets than before as they don’t want to walk past men at urinals." pic.twitter.com/1dUViAyznO

He estat a Laietana, Urquinaona, Catalunya i Passeig de Gràcia. I la fúria amb la que els Mossos i les seves furgones s’han dedicat a perseguir manifestants en exercici del dret fonamental a manifestar-se era, avui, més propi d’un estat policial que d’una democràcia. pic.twitter.com/RPLxh6QVpP

I met #Rawls at dinner after a talk he gave at NYU in 1988. Although I was a lowly postdoc in a group that included Ronald Dworkin & Tom Nagel, I had the temerity to raise some questions about his talk. He was generous in his responses at the time & a week later sent me a letter. pic.twitter.com/TocK57rCtP
