"The idea that math (or data) is culturally neutral or in any way objective is a MYTH. I'm ready to move on with that understanding. Who's coming with me?" Brooklyn College professor of math education Laurie Rubel tweeted...

"along with the 'of course math is neutral because 2+2=4' trope are the related (and creepy) 'math is pure' and 'protect math.' reeks of white supremacist patriarchy. I'd rather think on nurturing people & protecting the planet (with math in service of them goals),"

A Columbia University PhD no less!

What's scary is that at some point in the future the majority of the academic community will regard this as fact (or at least publicly conform to that view despite private reservations). Just as moral-posturing wise they accept systemic racism/sexism pervading every nook of the rest of society (including such being behind STEM imbalances). Abuse of social justice crusading is the weapon that anti-naturalists and pre-modernists having been seeking for generations to magically cause the brains of scientists and intellectuals to fall out.
