seems like an unfair caricature of her remarks on CFS and Showalter. It's funny how whenever feminists point out that science is embedded in layers and layers of cultural contexts, or that a particular scientific assumption coincidentally serves the interests of the powerful, we get slammed for being fuzzy-wuzzy nitwits who don't believe in DNA. (this has happened to me so I find it particularly annoying)
