The Position of the Uterus and Fetus at Term (1872).
Braune, W. An atlas of topographical anatomy after plane sections of frozen bodies. Trans. by Edward Bellamy. (Philadelphia: Lindsay and Blakiston, 1877)
Author: Braune, Wilhelm, 1831-1892.
A mystic is a hysteric who has met her confessor before her doctor.
The jerk today says : “This isn’t “humor” or “satire.” It’s misogyny. Please educate yourself about the history of hysteria and how it was (and is) used to silence women.”
I’m sick of this kind of (daily) morons incapable of interpreting a phrase from Umberto Eco (or anything else for the matter),
and possibly unable to surpass his own mental illness. Fucking imbecile inmoral assholes deeply retarded substandard trolls. Talk to your psychiatrist, or better, with a coroner. Period… Sorry but I’m getting sick of this stuff every other day… It’s unfair, wrong and sick.
Other one: “Someone suggests that you educate yourself about female trauma, and you lash out, use horrible slurs, and suggest that they die? People like you are the reason that women leave STEM fields. I should’ve unfollowed you a long time ago.”
Please, learn to read, its was Umberto Eco speaking (not me), in a context, and focusing in a (precise) topic, mysticism, nothing to do with your chimerical and monothematic sexism (and even less homophobia) that passed many years ago for most of us… and if there are people who have failed on get over it… well, certainly it’s not me, definitely… This is surreal, like a nightmare… it’s sad :’(
"People like you are the reason that women leave STEM fields". Nope, I have taught a lot of girls (and also guys), very very clever by the way, and they are now biologists, geologists, physicists, engineers and economists, there is ZERO sexism in me, and neither in my post (or so I intend).
Another one: “Aaaaand unfollow this misogynistic crap.”
Why misogynistic crap…? For quoting Umberto Eco (who is speaking on mysticism, nothing about genre)? Who is paranoid here? Who shows signs of selfishness? No, no need to answer me, they are rhetorical questions, the answer is obvious. Well, this is sadly delirious… the new church of political correctness … what a pain!
There are out there people reasonable too, of course. Psychosynchrony says “Today, hysteria describes excessive, unmanaged emotion. While true that—prior to the late 19th century—hysteria was thought a problem in the uterus—Umberto Eco is a man of the 20th century, and the book was published in 2010. Breathe, people.
