Hooooly shit. Footnote in Half the Sky, chapter called “Investing in Education,” my copy page 170:
Larry Summers offers an example to emphasize the distinction between correlation and causation. He notes that there is an almost perfect correlation between literacy and ownership of dictionaries. But handing out more dictionaries will not raise literacy.
this is not a drill, one of the best-selling “feminist” books of the century citing Larry Summers for insight about equality
goodbye, I am done, thank you
I stillll frequently see that quote attributed to one “Kelley Temple” even after what I thought was a pretty big reparative campaign

Cold turkey on eye-rolling. Stop feeling antagonized by your peers, you are many years older than them, you want to become a teacher of undergradients, you can’t do this anymore. There was never a time when you were in a high school class as an educator and guiding students through the readings like “ughh what is wrong with you sixteen year-olds,” and it never occurred to you to even think like that, there is zero reason why you should be like “ugggh what is wrong with you nineteen year-olds,” except that it sucks that they kind of technically are your peers and they are pretty capable of inflicting violence and harm on you but like, whatever. Anyway, it’s your fault they are still your peers, you could have turned in your final to Intro To Feminist Theories last year and, you know, not had to retake it. Your bed! Be humble and transparent and funny and self-deprecating, the way you are, about it.
Do I tell people “uhh I’m taking this class because I failed it the last time?” I will tell the instructor, probably. Do I say “last time I did this I was a noted campus anti-rape activist who like, was written about in the newspaper and got death threats about it, most of you don’t know about all of that because you are too young, since then I was raped by anti-rape activists and pushed out of anti-rape activism on campus because it is 100% rapists, but if you have filed a disciplinary action against your rapist on campus without having to face them YOU’RE WELCOME you couldn’t do that three years ago, lotta good it did any of us.”
