Sue Jackson would like university teachers to pay more attention to the likes of Luce Irigaray (Letters, 17 December). Is this the same Luce Irigaray who wrote that physicists prefer to study the dynamics of hard "male" objects rather than squashy "female" ones because science is sexist, not because there are fewer variables to worry about? She also claims that it's unfair on the other velocities that the speed of light is the greatest. God help us.
