This is madness! This is NOT how medical research is done! If they stopped providing funding for research and treatment for, say, Sickle Cell Anemia "because all its victims are Black) or cervical cancer, "because all of its victims are female) os Tay-Sachs “because it’s a genetic condition carried by Jews”…? is so entirely arsy-varsy I can’t even think clearly or for that matter, without cussing a blue streak!
And I -am- a raging liberal - but I’m not a moron! But all of my family, also wild-eyed social liberals, nearly is in various branches of medical research. Oh man, are we going to hear some ranting over the turkey this year! This is the kind of thing that cannot be permitted to affect academic researchers, most of whom actually barely scratch a decent living (and the job security is nothing to crow about- they don’t just throw tenure around like nerfballs, no matter what people think), who are really, truly giving their all to make the world a better, healthier place.
Stupid, stupid kids, and even stupider University board for letting the lunatics run the asylum.
Pardon - I tend to get this way every single time people without the vaguest idea what they are dealing with are given the power to make just incredibly stupid decisions about stuff like this. Sigh.
