"I need feminism because I would like
to have real conversations with men."
Meanwhile Rachael, 24, is majoring in physics at BYU (who said women couldn't do math?) and is one of only a handful of women cadets in the Air Force ROTC program. She recently completed summer boot camp and has been selected to be a pilot . Her Facebook page features a poster from Chelsea about Cecilia Payne Gaposchkin, who discovered that the sun and stars and thus the universe itself are composed of hydrogen, not heavy metals as was thought. "While her name should be as well known as that of Galileo, Newton, or Einstein, the patriarchal structure of institutional academia preventing her from achieving such status."
"[I HAVE CONCLUDED THAT FEMINISM IS GENETIC] There was a disruption in The Force when someone who would later become a feminist gave away her first born daughter [me] to Mormons (not her choice). But 45 years later, her granddaughters from the relinquishment are feminist movers and shakers at Brigham Young University, a place where the birth mother was unlikely to ever have feminist influence. But because of a ludicrous, unethical adoption placement, she indirectly does have influence at BYU, and with academic Mormons. Weird, huh?"**
Not weird, wonderful!!!
