Safe link to Instapundit; you can decide when you get there if you want to click on NBC’s sub-Buzzfeed, sub-Newsweek level #WokeTrolling.

Here’s some stupid words from NBC’s “Think” piece:

These men, particularly Musk, are not only heavily invested in who can get their rocket into space first, but in colonizing Mars. 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. Indeed, there is no ethical consideration among these billionaires about whether this should be done; rather, the conversation is when it will be done. Because, in the eyes of these intrepid explorers, this is the only way to save humanity.It is the same instinctual and cultural force that teaches men that everything — and everyone — in their line of vision is theirs for the taking. You know, just like walking up to a woman and grabbing her by the pussy.

It’s there, so just grab it because you can.

I didn’t make that up. You probably think I made that up, but get this — I didn’t.

The desire to colonize — to have unquestioned, unchallenged and automatic access to something — is a patriarchal one.

No offense, but if women think that striving to achieve the impossible and add immeasurably to the sum of human knowledge and wealth is “patriarchal,” then:

1, It’s little wonder they make, allegedly 77 cents on each “male” dollar, and

2, 77 cents seems way too generous. Perhaps they’re being overpaid just because of their sex.

…This Columbusing attitude — a strident business acumen laced with an imperialist ethos — comes with an air of benevolence: Musk doesn’t just want to colonize Mars to satisfy his ego. No, he wants to colonize Mars to help his fellow humans….

Rather, the impulse to colonize — to colonize lands, to colonize peoples, and, now that we may soon be technologically capable of doing so, colonizing space — has its origins in gendered power structures. Entitlement to power, control, domination and ownership. The presumed right to use and abuse something and then walk away to conquer and colonize something new.

It’s called “progress” and “daring,” and you’re welcome for the electricity you’re currently using, Useless Mouth.

And yes, this is a woman writing (or xhe identifies as female, at least), and yes, of course xhe identifies as a Gender Studies Scholar.

….As if history hasn’t proven that men go from one land to the next, drunk on megalomania and the privilege of indifference.

This sounds an awful lot like a woman who’s very bitter that she doesn’t get a lot of second dates on

The raping and pillaging of the Earth, and the environmental chaos that doing so has unleashed, are integral to the process of colonization. And the connection of the treatment of Mother Earth to women is more than symbolic: Study after study has shown that climate change globally affects women more than men.

Yes, all those female roofers baking in the summer sun. Sad!
