Kathleen Seidel: the Conspiracy Deepens Because Women Shouldn’t Be Able to Research Like She Can

Clifford J. Shoemaker has filed his response to the instruction to show cause in his action against blogger-supreme, Kathleen Seidel: Welcome to My Conspiracy. We can’t begin to do it justice, go and read it.

But, any of you women who are sassy enough to think that you can use Google and consult journals and basically read and stuff, you’d better take any blood pressure medication that you can get your hands on.

Faced with the specific harassment of witnesses and parties to this lawsuit, by a person utilizing investigative ability well in excess of that available to the mother and housewife [Kathleen Seidel] claims to be, justifies inquiry as to whether any of her support and information originates with this defendant or its affiliates, employees or industry organizations is legitimate.

Mouse over any links for a flavour of Kathleen’s dry humour (for any women reading, Shoemaker would want me to tell you that they are the blue words that are underlined).

After your menfolk have spared you time for this cyber-excursion you may be feeling a little too militant by proxy to return to your domestic tasks. I’m sure that Attorney Shoemaker would want me to advise you to listen to salient passages from Coventry Patmore’s The Angel in the House just to settle yourself down.

He is my head, as Christ is his!
None ever could have dared to see
In marriage such a dignity
For man, and for his wife, still less,
Such happy, happy lowliness…

And, ladies, always remember that reading is taxing and nobody finds bluestockings attractive even if they can defend the homestead with Google-Fu. As Patmore expresses it so eloquently:

A woman, like the Koh-i-noor,
Mounts to the price that’s put on her.

Many people are eagerly anticipating the judge’s response to this remarkable response from Attorney Shoemaker.

  1. Too much comedy gold in those legal documents… Mark Geier’s apparently also sceptical re Kathleen’s abilities:

    [quote]The scope of Ms. Seidel’s capacity to dig up material on my past is incredible. I do not believe that she could do this without a lot of help[/quote]

    Nice to see that Geier is retaining all his tact, as well, with a charming reference to “losing” children to autism. I guess, if autistic children are already ‘lost’, this might go some way to explaining certain researchers’ approach to ethics when experimenting on autistic children?

    Teh interwebs really do look like magic to some people, as does the capacity to consult various official documents etc., visit national libraries, order from stacks, read and understand documents.

    a critical perspective on the recent Geier co-authored paper, disappointingly uncritically reported by Ed Silverman on Pharmalot.

    Why is Dr Geier surprised that a trained librarian can locate information?
    Go Kathleen, from a fellow librarian.

    Haha – shades of Dorries demanding an enquiry on how written evidence – published openly and in full during a select committee hearing – could have got into the public domain.

    “Why is Dr Geier surprised that a trained librarian can locate information?”
    I thought locating information was pretty much what librarians did. Maybe Geier was confused about what librarians actually do.

    “I thought locating information was pretty much what librarians did.”

    Yep, it is and these days, thanks to the magic interwebs, we’re less likely to put our backs out grappling with hefty volumes of citation indexes, directories and the like!
