again Edward Hammond Clark was born in Norton Massachusetts okay Edward Norton he was the fourth child of Mary who was an eager amateur poet and picked Clark who had attended Harvard was a robot and spend his life as a minister ok so his dad's name is Clark Clark minister says that the gas station a man eighteen forty one he graduated from Harvard Medical School K at the age of twenty one ok solid those unable to attend the graduation ceremony due to problems with his digestive system voicemail the fixes his own body at this point Mom Wow he's a Harvard doctor it sounds like he was the sums are shedding digest this is a problem you can go somewhere that means you're you're you're shooting situation right you might have a situation these problems plagued him for most of his teenage years and through college ok despite this he finished first in his class ok the malignant affection of his in the lower portion of his intestinal track would dog him for the rest of his life okay great so we've got that look for to train as a doctor in Philadelphia and Europe then settled in Boston where he set up a practice specializing in the year diseases okay man it's fun private huge back then yeah it's also got to be fun to get in that game and I just want to look at problems inside of years I just want to go when getting your hear that because when you hear stories about like even

sorry let me do the procedure then I'll tell you I say I do in Europe a one hundred dollars he made a name for himself using the latest medicines and people came from across the country to be treated by him so he's hot shit is a lot of their problems their problems up the fuckin wazoo and share eighteen forty now so click the game well placed in Boston society Wright sees a fancy doctor share and in eighteen fifty five was appointed professor of medicine at Harvard ok if we had a toilet in his office yes or just a buck but something was hanging art God something is happening in the world which was concerning to Doctor Edward Clark Boyd the education of girls ok there and we've got I have lived I I a title and the number of young women going to universities was increasing dramatically crazy that's you know that not happening that the idea that you like the what the media know the debate the ass the debate of whether or not women should go to school have been going on for quite some time sure the woman question as it is called started in the later nineteenth century it was a question the role of women in industrialized countries like America yeah now many question whether women had the intellectual capacity for education and others argued their bodies couldn't handle the rigors of intelligent work here's the thing then let him fail at what would be none eye contact always going to protect these little dirty shit different day when the last side if that's the upside is to say that women will completely collapse if they learn fact the need to win the the buyers of bones in a win inks mode we can't have women in piles of bones and skin and prevent being women and sprouted a good enough are they saying that I'll take you you ask him now in the eighteen seventies there was an established consensus in America that boy's education should be extended beyond reading and writing to math science and philosophy to prepare them for the new industrial age sure with girls this was still a debate right yup sure thing they were discouraged from science and math I don't know I don't want you I had to add numbers unless of course we're talking about the numbers that baked dish is cooked huge the in about a woman to you know what to bake a pie I don't think you who understand you should be way out flower ok they had all they needed finishing schools that taught home economics to prepare them for lives of Housewives she had no choice your job is to serve your husband but now many girls were continuing with schooling into their teenage years the day the Emma Willard had opened a school for girls in Troy New York in eighteen nineteen and Catherine Beecher open a school for girls in Hartford Connecticut in eighteen twenty three it's spreading public schools for girls in Boston and New York were established in eighteen twenty six no it was happening which was very upsetting to men like Clark that I buy the eighteen seventies although all Hell's breaking loose on Lady front women were campaigning for suffrage working in factories medicine and most frightful e to Clark entering public high schools and universities need to lay down I'm lightheaded or does God say in my touch and see that they're going to explode in eighteen seventy one Harriet J Cook became the first woman college professor in the United States the talk the the she was appointed a full professor with a salary equal to her male peers of God in eighteen seventy three Ellen swallow Richards became the first woman to receive a Bachelor of Science from MIT know several women and swallow Richards how the game gave the the the time in several women's colleges opened across the northeastern USA in the seventies including Smith Vassar Bryn Mawr and Wellesley College's by eighteen seventy American women could choose from two hundred and thirty nine colleges but only a handful were co educational ok it's mostly your lady go to places it should be if you have that resistance coming at you while as you're after is like you know let's get some judgmental Meadow rare but they wanted but but the education and equal rights the boys are getting better educations so feminists in education or former senator fighting for CO edge of Kush co education right put him in the same school in higher education a better education led to a lead to greater demands for equality everything is snow balling women were abandoning the finishing schools in favor of public schools and universities looking to improve their lot in life for Clark this was disturbing and dangerous and it all started with education in eighteen seventy two is a professor at the Harvard Medical College at the height of his profession Clark was invited to speak at the New England Women's Club which was an organization of progressive women why was he invited and have no idea where they did they not do there I think because he's their brains too mushy from all the books I think he's I think at this point he might not have been vocal about it and he's just this guy from her medical schools they invite him to talk they'll be in light because Doctor rife with little that they know the topic of his speech was appropriate methods for education of girls Clark told the audience of forward thinking women that educating girls was dangerous to grow between thirteen and seventeen spent too much time learning the energy put into developing her brain would hinder the growth of her ovaries and uterus I just what is so reminiscent honestly i and i won't it just sounds like the climate change debate ok well it's just like the idea that you're like when you are like those facts trying to sound like you know what you're talking about when you're bullshitting is really hard oil you know like that is just like not know what happened is ladies listen you got an and Emme was going to happen is you won't be going to dry up and you'll be barren because you won't bones connected via brain bone right ok he's right because the blood comes out from you the blood that in your vagina parts comes UP UP UP India brain weight with the learning is happening in the lower parts they dry on the take the microphone away from you for a second because I feel like I was kind of fitness on the head and you're going heavy on the the blood general race yet not to know outfit know what happens the whole pussy zero I got them I cut all the mics all the mics to be kind all day cut them now so the clerk later wrote that his speech had quote excited and unexpected amount of discussion and has emboldened me to think that their publication in a more comprehensive form with added cycle lot of physiological details and clinical illustrations might contribute something however little to the cause of sound education to every rule was passed and he's like the book the critic much happened that the ascent these women A should write it down ladies be careful you don't want to get some said your brains don't work and you won't explode right to this such an amount of discussion that is going to write it down in eighteen seventy three published Sex in education or a fair chance for girls that's the Bastille I'm looking out for you ladies I am looking out for what's happening with you lonely you just have a baseline and Clark did not raise too little of the to stay in the kitchen and they called a collector not believe use axis this was simply science men and women he said were both able to reach the same intellectual heights they can both learn languages medicine philosophy literature and any other topic to the same level quote man is not superior to woman nor woman to man ok now here's a little but he has to say this because the times have changed and is now in the seventies been proven that women can learn medicine fuzzy that they can sew it so now the old argument that women there that they can handle intellectually right that's gone because of because of women doing it so but then so what is his argument has now morphed into here we go ok many women's physiology is we're different and particular clock was concerned about the organization of men and women what he says organization he's referring to their reproductive organs he is sticking with the badge no way a woman's organization quote limits or how either way I mean I have to refer to it as an organization for awhile aye ma'am I'm looking to get inside your organization I'd love to be a part of the team and what the hell is the kinda bang yet the air my resume it's pretty clear I a woman's organization it's her what good is a woman's organization limits or power and reveals her divinely appointed tasks just as man's organization limits his power and reveals his work in the development of the organization is to be found the way of strength and power for both sexes limitation or development leads to both to weaken and failure with women treated the same as man it was damaging their organs their organizations yes Clark said there should be a quote feminine training arranged to develop a feminine organization what does he have an argument or is he just likes the camera he's trying to say that that may learn are different and and their their womb area their sweet over reason and Joshua are harmed by the state's care of them to take care of it was a ticker of what their organization but does that mean what in lesser du xing or letter masquerading as much as hear them and now I'm trying to hear the man out but so then what is he saying they said to him and he is what happens to a man's penis becomes harder and smarter cock he used a metaphor to illustrate okay about the Lily is not in fear I got to go right now the Lily is not inferior to the Rose nor the oak superior to the Clover yet the glory of the Lily is one and the glory of the oak is another and the use of the oak is not the use of the Clover that is pour her a culture which would train them all like so you don't treat the Clover like oak or the Lily like the oak they're different he's literally using flowers and would you treat treat differently than Lily don't you sir yes sir yes you do thank you we are adjourned I don't think this is the court though women can learn as was men they shouldn't because it would harm their organs that this is but OK but there's literally no medical connection to what know that he's a doctor not a doctor quote It is not true that she can do all this and retain an injured health and a future secure from disease hysteria another Derangement of the nervous system post here what if she follows the same methods that boys are trained and he saw this as a problem for the future of America this is an astounding level of bullshit how can according to Clark women in the eighteen seventies in America where a disaster their situation was dire they were diseased and there and these diseases were all related to their menstrual cycles wow this I mean what's he makes a point of listing these diseases you notice that week when they get it they become real bitchy thank you well my theory he makes a point listing these diseases throughout his book almost all are normal functions of the female body has to lose Soria which is the discharge of Moriah when a woman a Mrs. so far they just like opera so no one misses three periods or oh dis Moriah pain during menstruation chronic or acute over itis inflamed ovaries so he lists all these things then and that's connected to learning right right and of course there is hysteria which was a common diagnosis of women at the time that is total bullshit yeah why would they be a hysterical mood in this time women considered to have had a wide array of symptoms including fitness nervousness sexual desire insomnia should I get fucked the the subtle desire it but that is that is so thick that is still true in some morphed version of words like acceptable for a man to be sexual unlike its not ok many ages you know also insomnia fluid retention heaviness in the abdomen shortness of breath your ability loss of appetite for food or sacks and a tendency to cause trouble there is also a pro lapses you to Rye well when weakened or damaged muscles and ligaments allow the uterus to slip into the vagina right when the uterus moves n yeah and yeah the uterus moves into the vagina right were I had a poster on the wall Merle G Woodson but those are all like those are things that happen it's just that he is he is connecting that to learn of neural Jia which we now recognize as a symptom of a few diseases stabbing burning off in severe pain occurs from a damaged nerve so he lists all these things and says they're they come from books going to Clark these afflictions tortured women and will result not just of education but also food clothing and exercise ok quote We live in a zone of perpetual pie and donuts well I would love to take him today is only in that zone yet as late as I was the perpetual The donut he's been hanging out in a bakery like I am the days change much also may be credited to artificial deformities strapped to the spine or piled on the head much to corsets and skirts so is blaming the way they dress which is which is surely a product of how men view and treat them too of course before this guy's got a good job of walking away from the scene of the crime on a comeback food and fashion were more indirectly to blame the real cars came from quote the neglect of the peculiarities of a woman's organization so they're not they're neglecting their lady area because of that getting super sick with all these different problems ok you can't neglect it have to take care of it sir believe by going to school girls couldn't look after their periods oh my guide his theory is that they're too busy to deal with being a woman he's basically saying that if a woman as a period she just shut everything else down and just focus re start just south hit the reset button so a woman is Clark pointed out that a wealthy European woman who visited America commented that American women were a feeble race and that she quote never saw before so many pretty girls together they all looked sick what is she who is that this track raisins off this is a dank angry German what God the I did stop the ever before and are shot out grows the switch it's the doll have I been clear like and studied in Europe and wrote he was quote always surprised by the red blood that fills and colors the faces of ladies and peasant girls he is really walking a dangerous line here with the amount of like insinuation that says just at the start of the sentences are like dead I know you had a doubt but he does but IMO is equally surprised on my return by the crowds of pale plum this female faces that suggest consumption grow fuel which is a swelling of lymph nodes in the neck anemia and or neurology up to a large extent our present system of educating girls is the cause of this power in weakness the period was a wonderful thing and it needed attention what he what is he is really going for the into the heart of the storm unfortunately in America the period was being neglected in love due to school that is crazy quote I was so busy reading I just realized that area it's all over the cow I don't know on going to be fun I forgot all the facts to quote this neglected herself in girl hood when her organization is duct Island impressive bull breeds the germs of disease is that later in life yield torturing or fatal malady I know the only time that men give a crap about a vagina is when they're legislating a stirrup that's only care about it when they're fuckin true outside of that the only thing they care like we still have they still are like demanding control of the verse over genitals so gross neglect and shame of their cycles in favor of study had the disease making them weaker the endgame was the the American middle class would fail to reproduce it would soon be outnumbered by an educated immigrants so that to jump yeah this whole thing's a job I just like insane jobs boss and this time Ed very quickly of a quick growing Irish population and that caused
