dad gets defensive
Dad: You shouldn’t downplay traditional Chinese medicine, Jane. Some practitioners can lay their fingers on your wrist and tell if you’re pregnant or not.
Jane: I don’t believe that’s true at all.
Dad: You know what you are? You’re anti-science, just like the people who locked up Galileo.
Jane: Excuse me? Are you comparing me to the guys who burnt witches at the stake?
Zhao: I think, maybe Dad meant to compare you to people who deny tenure.
Jane: Which in academia, is still equivalent to death.
