Yeah, it took me by surprise too. You’ll be relieved to know it’s on a nice, quiet, non-controversial topic, Contraception and Healthcare Rights. Here were my thoughts as I read:
- Yay! A Tollefsen article my readers will actually like!
- Ooops. Nope. More mad readers. Uh oh.
- No, never mind, I think it’s good after all.
So, er, read at your own risk. It’s written philosophy-style, of course, so you’re constantly behind the curve, never really sure whether you agree with the guy or not. But I’m pretty sure he makes sense. In that special philosopher way.*
*Keep in mind that professional philosophers have to work day in and day out with people who aren’t strictly sure they exist, or perhaps are sure they exist, but also that they only turned up at the conference or the coffee bar on account of their molecules making them do that. I’m not making fun. That’s what a subset of real live tenured philosophy professors actually think. I’ve taken the classes . . . I know. You’d write reaaally caaarefullly if you had to present your papers to those people. (I mean, for a living. If you’re a student, you could just write normally and live with the B.)
