Почему-то прилетело только Ньютону.  Фарадей, Галилей, Лавуазье  и прочие Эйнштейны не удостоились. Вероятно, она про них ни сном, ни духом.
А вот обидная история с яблоком, несправедливо упавшим не на ту голову, вызвала жгучее желание деколонизировать науку:

Josef Joffe, the editor-publisher of German weekly Die Zeit, suggests the easiest way to end the “Trump catastrophe” is to murder the president in the White House.

Times columnist and author India Knight has called for the assassination of U.S. President, Donald J. Trump.
During a days-long invective against the newly inaugurated President, on Twitter in which Knight called Mr Trump a “
moron”, “mad”, “needy”, and an “arse”, among other things, before telling him to “shut up”, she mused “the assassination is taking such a long time.”

Politico уволил Юлию Йоффе ( за испущенный ею твит следующего содержания: “Either Trump is fucking his daughter or he’s shirking nepotism laws. Which is worse?”
Уволили ее за obvious violation of POLITICO standards. Без работы она, впрочем, не останется - в январе начинает работать в The Atlantic.

Интересно, что именно не соответствовало стандартам - смелое предположение или его словесное оформление?

Член горсовета, социалистка, предлагает открыть в Цюрихе бордель на деньги налогоплательщиков. Осталось, правда, убедить остальных, включая ее товарищей по партии, которые проституцию не одобряют.  Горсоветница ее тоже не жалует, но аргументирует тем, что бордель приведет к улучшению условий труда в сфере сексуальных услуг.

Некоторые геи катят бочку на трансгендеров и хотят выкинуть их из ЛГБТ.

A page called “Drop the T” has been doing the rounds for the last few days, brought to prominence after I tweeted it. The petition makes a compelling case for the expulsion of the transsexual lobby from the LGBT umbrella. It asks that gay rights organisations “stop representing the transgender community as we feel their ideology is not only completely different from that promoted by the LGB community … but is ultimately regressive and actually hostile to the goals of women and gay men.”

Несколько смачных отрывков:

It seems like any time you hear about  an LGBT person causing a scene, it’s a transsexual.

those playing the trans card in the media, whether personally transgender or not, are very often
the most awful people on the planet: hectoring, nannying control freaks without an ounce of joy in their hearts.

trans activists seem obsessed with policing and controlling others. They are humourless, divisive, hateful, god-awful bores who have inherited the very worst from their intersectional third-wave feminist antecedents and who seem more interested in laying down the law about pronouns than anyone’s health or welfare. Frankly, I’ve had enough of them.

Not, of course, that transgenderism is an alternative sexuality at all. It isn’t.
It’s a psychiatric disorder. Sorry, no offence, but it’s true: you only have to look it up. Everyone’s pretty much sold on gays and lesbians as a sexual orientation now. But you can’t do the same with trannies who require hormone treatments and the services of a skilled butcher.

Progressives, who are wrong about everything, are freaking out because their grip on the most powerful and successful minority of all – gay men – is loosening.

So, there’s a minority war brewing: progressive columnists are bearing down on gay men, telling us that we’re – get this – privileged, because most of us are still white and male, telling us that our sexual preferences are “racist.” They’re trying to push the G out of LGBT. I say: strike first.
I mean, let’s be honest, the whole rotten LGBT edifice needs to come down. Why are we still pretending gay men and lesbians even like each other? I get that in the old days it was nice to have somewhere to hang out together, but lezzers don’t even want that any more: male gay bars are open to everyone, but their dyke equivalents are very often women-only. Lesbians are the blacks of homosexuality: welcomed everywhere, yet also allowed to reserve certain places only for themselves.

Там еще много прекрасного и удивительного.
