Elon Musk is being criticized for what Marcie Bianco, editorial and communications manager at Stanford University's Clayman Institute for Gender Research, is calling a sexist approach to the space race.
Musk, you may remember, recently launched a Tesla Roadster into orbit around the sun aboard a SpaceX rocket developed in a program intended to put humans on Mars.
Bianco, in a Feb. 21 NBC News article titled "The patriarchal race to colonize Mars is just another example of male entitlement," takes aim squarely at Musk, though fellow billionaire rocket-men Jeff Bezos of Amazon and Richard Branson of Virgin get stirred into the same testosterone-flavored stew.
This article has to be a joke, please tell me it's a joke. Like the Onion or something. Humanity is doomed.
#4 The only thing that can possibly stop the left-right Civil War at this point is a surprise attempt at human genocide by our robots and supercomputers, which we have already learned they can create their own secret languages and stuff.
#5 Or maybe not. With Trump in charge, the specter of fighting for survival against human genocide sort of pales in comparison with the injustice of the white heterosexual male patriarchy and it's totalitarian death grip on Western culture.
What's ironic about it? It's annoying because it's stupid. How is being annoyed at stupid things ironic unless you say things just as stupid as well? Dude, nobody on the right has come with anything as stupid as this since voodoo economics. The far left totally own this crap. And that's what it is: crap.
This perpetually offended subset of the left is incredibly annoying.

It really is almost as bad as the perpetually offended entirety of the right.
"This perpetually offended subset of the left is incredibly annoying."
You must have remarkably thin skin.
Predictably, only on one side of your body.
Just got off the phone with the crazy ladys obgyn. apparently she was recently examined and they found cobwebs.
How is she right Bruce? When she says ""The desire to colonize - to have unquestioned, unchallenged and automatic access to something, to any type of body, and to use it at will - is a patriarchal one."?
What is the alternative? Should we not explore our Solar System so as to avoid spreading "masculine toxicity"? I have two nieces who work at JPL, should they quit because of those icky men?
The only person whining is Ms. Bianco, who is basically saying "Men Bad".
HRat is correct, you Lefties own this idiocy 100%.
If there is a sausage fest on Mars, I'm not going. They best include the lady's, be hard to colonize Mars without them...Just saying....
hard to colonize Mars without them...
So you think we are going to Mars??
1) All the Universe is rocks and Space.
2) Life is rare - Animal Biomass is rarest of all.
3) God created Man - no fangs, claws or muscles.
4) Man has the highest muscle to bone ratio among animals.
5) Man went to the moon 60 years ago and never went back.
6) Tens of thousands go missing every year with no traces ever found.
7) Hands and feet contain the lest amount of muscles.
8) Feet start washing up in British Columbia. No clue as to who they belong to.
Planet Earth is one big free range cattle ranch where man was created to serve as food. The best ranches are the ones where the cattle actually think they run the ranch.
Do you really think they are going to let cattle run free outside their pens?
