Earlier today I was reading a feminist philosophy book for class and the author (Luce Irigaray) said that E=mc^2, Einstein's famous equation, "privileges the speed of light over other speeds that are vitally necessary to us" implying that the equation itself is sexist. I've been trying to make sense of it all day and I'm still not sure if I agree. Do you think that she's right? Do you think it's a sexist equation?
