It doesn’t seem dated, your attitude is dated. This is the 21st century.
Women deserve to be in STEM programs just as much as men. I’d wager they deserve to succeed in the Sciences even more than men because of the sexism and misogyny they experience.
They struggle to get in because they’re the minority, and a lot of people who could admit them are sexist (regardless of gender) because of the society they grew up in. Its not through any intellectual weakness. These women are amazing and just as smart as the men in their fields.
You have no right to say these things to these amazing women, many of whom I consider to be friends.
Wow. That seems like really fucking wrong. And offensive.
And I would love to take some more time out of my day to be pissed about it.
It seems that I have a lot of fucking science to do.
So, uh, screw that.
If anybody needs me, me and my lady bits will be getting some fucking science done.
I’m oddly excited to have been name checked by this shitty anon. Because it means that the very fact that I got into an Ivy League, top 15 science PhD program (where I fucking belong) is a giant fuck you to shitty anon. Also, shitty anons make Lewis sad. Because Lewis is a feminists science hippo.
Best way for me to deal with shitty nonnies who think women can’t do science? DO MORE SCIENCE!!!! MWAHAHAHA
Crap, I’m a woman biologist. I’d go get another career but I have a groundbreaking thesis on rapid evolution of reproductive isolation between seed beetle populations to finish.
I’m not a well-known tumblr scientist…but I am a scientist all the same. And while I could probably obtain a more gender-appropriate occupation… I’m pretty content with the fact I’m an atmospheric chemist Additionally, I am also one of the few women who have managed to be selected to intern at NASA’s airborne research program.
Do I not deserve a place in the STEM fields, anon?
Hey ladies! Mind if some physicists join in?
At the CERN visiting the CMS part of the LHC where were were working for 8 months on both computational and experimental work:
Presenting our research at a conference on Physics of Living Systems:
And visiting the Wind Tunnel experiment after presenting our research at Max Planck Institute at a Advances in Cardiac Dynamics Workshop
Oh, me? What do I do? I try to understand why superbursts happen in neutron stars! This is important because: they shouldn’t happen but they do. And the implications could be astoundingly helpful for things like, oh I don’t know, nuclear fusion.
Oh, just me, at a conference after presenting this:
"don’t belong there"?! excuse you!
Im not a science tumblr but i am a girl and a geologist so i kinda prove you wrong…?
In the Sorbas Basin finding fossilised bird trackways and fossilised rain drops
Using HCl to dissolve solnhofen plattenkalk (limestones) to make plastic copies of exceptional fossils
On board the HMS Discovery, a state of the art scientific ship which anchors at the NOC (national oceanography centre Southampton)
Doing some geological mapping and fieldwork in Ingleton Yorkshire
So yeh anon, you’re wrong and very very very outdated in your opinions
oh wow this anon thinks that women don’t belong in STEM—
better throw my archaeology B.A. in the trash, burn my thesis and stop teaching biology, chemistry and physics to the 8-12th grades.
SCIENCE TO DO
NO TIME FOR SEXIST MAN CHILD ANONS
oh I guess I should burn the cheque I got for guest lecturing in grad school too—
Sorry, no time to answer douchey anon. To busy getting paid handsomely to do research things like this
While dressed fabulously like this
Because unlike the bullshit movies would tell you, geologists don’t wear white lab coats. Something to do with all that dirt.
I’d tell my grad school and all the funding bodies that gave me a fellowship and research grants that they were totally mistaken because girls don’t science well except OOPS ALREADY GOT MY MS IN GEOLOGY, TOO LATE.
Well darn. Guess I better just get back to doing science instead.
Huh, it’s interesting that women aren’t smart enough to get into graduate programs. I wonder why my biomedical Ph.D. program at a large, prestigious research university is consistently ~60% women. Maybe men don’t want to live in the extreme weather conditions of southern California or something. Oh but wait, that’s actually the same demographic as the 9 other large research universities to which I applied. So please, tell me again about how women struggle to get into STEM doctoral programs because they’re not smart enough.
those moments when straight people assume you’re one of them and you feel like a gay secret agent
it’s an ace case
OH MY GOD
Asgardians don’t know about Beyoncé.
#this just occurred to me#like Thor is watching tv with Darcy who is watching random music videos#Who Run the World starts to play#and Thor is like#’Who is this fierce warrior? She leads her troops in a such rhythmic way.’#Darcy’s like#’ Holy crap you don’t who Beyoncé is’#she plays all the albums in her itunes and let’s him watch the Super Bowl performance#and Thor’s mind is settled he must go to a concert#long story short Beyoncé is the first Migardian singer to perform on Asgardian soil#spoiler alert: she’s a huge success#spoiler alert 2: Asgardians are like ’ HOW DID WE SURVIVE SO LONG WITHOUT THE SONGS OF WARRIOR GODDESS BEYONCÉ???’#spoiler alert 3: Sif plays ‘Who Run The World’ as she dives in to battle with her all female army’#’ IN THE NAME OF BEYONCÉ!’ she’ll scream#’BEYONCÉ!’ Sif’s female army will yell back (via ororosmunroe)
CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT THIS SUPER SWEET ICE-CREAM AD LESBIAN LOVE STORY WITH LILY ALLEN AS THE CUPID
Look, it’s 8 minutes of queer love story that isn’t about being queer and how terrible it is. Instead their problems are perfect rom-com problems. This is what I’m talking about.
Give me a hundred thousand versions of this. I’ll pay you. I’ll give you my soul for these two in SPACE.
Some context: entering this season, no woman had completed a televised course in either Japanese or American Ninja Warriors. I’d also argue that ANW’s qualifying courses are harder than any Stage 1 course on either.
This woman is a fucking badass. First woman ever to advance!
I’m not crying your crying
