A few quick thoughts

Apologies for the lack of activity, I’m working on that major autism post I’ve been promising and reading “Performing Kinship” by Krista E. Van Vleet. Top that off with other obligations and I just haven’t had much time to write recently. I do, however, wish to share a few thoughts.

1) I find historical linguistic approaches to teaching science terminology works quite well.

2) Oversimplifications of scientific research happen all the time; so too do poor metaphors and distracting obfuscations of reality.

3) A wonderful bit from Pliny: Risk a Verse: Medical Genetics and the Economics of Ethics

4) The “biological parent” of Western society should be renamed “gamete donor” as the Sullk’ata demonstrate best that the individuals caring for the child are the “mother” and “father.”
