This week, one of the online classes read Peggy McIntosh's Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack.

I don't pick the curriculum and the course is designed so that there is literally no discussion of any kind. It's an educational travesty, but they've opted to not to renew my contract at that particular gig, so it's an educational travesty I have no ability to repair.

I still get one last semester of reading Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack essays, though. My favorite moment so far: (paraphrased from a female student)

I totally disagree with the author. There are no unspoken expectations about the roles of men or women, or blacks or whites. He [the author} could not be more wrong.

I'll have to let Peggy know that she's wrong. And also about the gender-reassignment, based solely on her choice to write articles.
