She should have stuck with her homework

The Amazing Miss Rittlemeyer allows herself a digression into gender theory. I would advise you, Miss Rittelmeyer, that it is a waste of time to read anything that contains a sentence like this:
Embracing individuality and agency can include both pursuing personal interests and social, cultural, and environmental projects that incorporate political and social justice orientations.
The reification of abstraction is bad enough -- I challenge anyone to explain how this pretentious word-salad applies in any way to that quaint thing called "the real world" -- but the phrase "social justice" is the real deal-breaker for me. Social justice is a mirage, as Hayek observed.
