Unfortunately I’d say some nursing students would not find this all that rare or surprising, although calling some patients “the worst” is a whole other level of racism. This kind of content, and behaviour, needs to be eradicated from health education. DONT BE THIS PERSON!

Hahahahaha sorry :) I mean yes science is great and yes “womxn in science” is also great and worth celebrating but to uncritically worship someone because the white imperialist royal society thought she was ok should be a warning signal if we are going to decolonize health care

Writing a book is a truly communal effort. My wonderful neighbours raised their storage unit for me and now I have filing cabinets!! (My grant budget does not include infrastructure!)

Making lesbians straight, a history of the hand-washing gender gap, & the not-so-romantic history of Valentine's Meat Juice. It's time for Sunday Morning Medicine.

If he thinks eugenics (ie killing) is an appealing ideology (regardless of whether it works or not - pro tip it doesn’t) then why even bring it up? The only reason to engage it with it is to refute it irrevocably as one of the greatest horrors of which humanity is capable.

The coronavirus danger in Australia is low, yet fear is running high. Racism, xenophobia and viral panics are presenting bigger threats. Time for the federal government to re-fund a national anti-racism strategy. Today’s column for

Historical knowledge grows slowly and precariously; precariously, because of the constant recurrence of discredited errors; slowly, because of increasing difficulty in obtaining new material. —George Sarton, The Study of the History of Science (1936)

But I think you’re missing my point, it’s not whether FN “founded” modern nursing, ie training schools. It’s that even THAT needs to be understood critically, because it’s not been a universal good. And only focusing on her erases alternative histories, which do exist.
