Halp!! I’m trapped in my dissertation!

(Also apparently I’m going to the UK this July to talk for exactly 20 minutes. Seems inefficient but good for me I guess?)

Apparently Judy Chicago is gonna set off some “feminist fireworks” in Prospect Park, where the word ‘feminist’ here means ‘depicting lots of vaginas and wholly lacking in relevance or significance to anything’.

Anonymous asked: Ok I like zinnia jones (forget what they go by now whoops) and someone told me to ask you about her presumably she did something dumb

jobhaver:

i have a running feud with her over how she talks about trans woman sex workers, something she has faced a substantial amount of criticism about by other trans women who perform in porn, and she dismisses. some of the posts pertaining to this can be found in the “sex work” tag on my blog (which i have been working on making a more comprehensive index of my writings on sex work).

specifically, things she has said i take issue with are that mainstream trans porn (which pays trans women such as myself cash to have sex in front of a camera) visually depicts trans women as being a combination of a cis man and a cis woman (e.g., looking like a cis woman while having the sexuality of a cis man). i noted that this criticism of porn is degrading to the workers.

more recently she mounted a defense of the idea that comparing someone casually to a person who has performed in porn or done sex work (in this instance, bailey jay) inherently sexualizes and objectifies that person. that notion i feel is rooted firmly in the idea that our personalities and images are damaged by our work and is also disrespectful to sex workers.

in both of these cases there are actually legitimate feminist issues to be addressed with respect to porn production and the types of predatory sexual behavior engaged in by men but that the way zinnia jones has addressed these has been at the expense of sex workers. zinnia jones rejects that distinction as being semantic and mocks criticisms by sex workers as being “tumblr social justice” gone awry.

more recently she has claimed to be a sex negative radical feminist, which i am also, but displays a basic lack of understanding of the conceptual framework from which those ideologies are derived and uses that ideological label primarily as an excuse to talk shit about sex workers. for example, when asked what she thought of marxism she said that she didnt know enough about it to respond and that it wasnt relevant to her interests. that anyone takes her recent posturing as radical seriously is absurd.

additionally, when i mentioned on my blog that i was uncomfortable being referred to with singular they pronouns, which she had been doing in her passive aggressive tweets about me, she mocked my pronoun preference and continued to exclusively use singular ‘they’ for me. to my knowledge she has never once respected my pronoun preference, something which for me triggers sex dysphoria

My partner was just interrogated by her mother over whether or not I’ve had “the surgery.”

Her reply was “it’s none of your business.”

Which is good and all…

But the correct response is “her genitals exist in a state of quantum uncertainty and only take form when they are allowed to be observed. She calls them ‘Schrodinger’s Gonads.’”

That’s not how that works. The thought experiment is meant to illustrate how the Copenhagen Interpretation is absurd. Further you’re misusing the term ‘observe’ in reference to QM.

I’m not thick headed, I’m quite aware that this is supposed to be a joke, but check yourself before you wreck yourself.

Eh, I was already kinda wrecked knowing my partner’s mother was interested in my junk.

Pretty sure humor often requires misuse of some words and concepts to make jokes work.

Wow the Humorless Scientific Nitpicking fandom is intense

Also Humorless Scientific Nitpicking asshole is being an asshole entirely unnecessarily. Yeah, Schrodinger’s example with the cat was meant to illustrate how positing wacky quantum states that become non-wacky when observed is fucking ridiculous and we should be hella skeptical of any theory of physics that says such weird shit. Who cares?

The fact is that Schrodinger’s cat, in the thought experiment, *is* in a super weird state which we can (roughly and colloquially, sure, but not inaccurately) describe as being “a state of quantum uncertainty and only take form when they are allowed to be observed”. The same goes for any noun we plug in to the construction “Schrodinger’s _________”.

The OP’s joke is *fine*. There’s nothing wrong with it, even if we’re being nitpicky assholes about it. But the thing is, even if there *was* something wrong with it, we don’t need to be assholes to people we don’t know just because we’re desperate to prove how smart we are. Especially when you’re wrong, in which case all you’ve proved is that you’re an asshole.
