“It is my judgement in these things that when you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it, and you argue about what to do about it only after you have had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb. I don’t think anybody opposed making it; there was some doubt about what to do with it after it was made.” Robert “Oppie” Oppenheimer
Shit like ^^^^ THAT will send a woman reeling if we have to really think about it, but the truth is that shit like that is patriarchy in a nutshell, and there is nowhere to run. Patriarchy is global, pervasive, in our beds and in our minds. The part that sends me right over the edge is this: “I don’t think anybody opposed making it.” REALLY? Did you ask WOMEN? Oh, RIGHT we are NOBODY. Whoops, keep forgetting that detail. So basically we’re in the trunk of a car with the kids, Windex and gloves (cleaning it) and the driver is drunk, headed towards a cliff, and he won’t even at least let us drive so we’ll get to hell safely, cause he says we’re incapable of driving.
Oh my Goddess, my head explodes.
“There was some doubt about what to do with it after it was made.” Okay, dude, you’re just trolling us now. Please, for the love of all women’s sanity, do not suggest that on TOP of all this, you do not know why you built an atomic bomb. Even the ants know why men built an atomic bomb and what will be done with it. The purpose of a bomb is to blow shit up. That is the only reason for making a bomb. THE ONLY ONE.
