This teacher is working on her doctoral dissertation. I didn’t know you could get a Ph.D. in ‘Dumb.’

If she wants to believe that 2+2=4 is open to “other interpretations,” fine.

But lots of luck getting medication filled where the pharmacist “re-interprets” the prescription numbers in a more woke manner. Or walking into an elevator where the building construction crew “re-imagined” the blueprints based on their feelings.

Brittany Marshall, a self-described teacher and Ph.D. student, took to Twitter this past weekend to voice her displeasure about the concept of 2+2=4, saying the “idea” of the simple math equation is merely “cultural.”….

“Nope the idea of 2+2 equaling 4 is cultural and because of western imperialism/colonization, we think of it as the only way of knowing,” wrote Marshall (HT: Disrn). Never mind that the Arabic numeral system we use is not, you know, “Western.”….

Just the kind of person you want teaching your kids, right?….

Marshall’s tweet appears to be part of a larger discussion on Twitter that began with this assertion from Ida Bae Wells, whose Twitter bio says she’s a reporter for New York Times Magazine “covering race from 1619-present.”

The discussion prompted another teacher, Kim Charlton, to declare that “math isn’t objective.”

She added in a subsequent tweet, “Just because we’re told standards/math are objective doesn’t mean they are.”….

    What do you do with these people? I mean that. What? Where do they go? If you hold up two fingers and ask how many fingers am I holding up, what do they answer? Cantaloupe? I cannot wrap my mind around the depths of their detachment.

    OK, while Ms. Marshall is working on her doctoral degree, perhaps she’d like to comment on this somewhat famous equation: E=mc2. It might challenge the mass (matter) that passes for her brain.

    Ph.D. = Philosophy Dumbassery?

    Their purpose isn’t about solving problems. Their purpose is about controlling your mind; that was the theme of the book 1984. If they can convince you that 2+2=5, they can convince you of anything. Never forget that.
