In another "this is why women in STEM aren't taken seriously" entry, we have these lovely future MENSA members. --> https://archive.today/w9688
I'll save you the time of reading through the triggering cis-hetero oppression and bring you the good stuff myself.
One of the scientists, Matt Taylor, was being interviewed in the moments leading to a (potential) touch down after Philae began its descent onto the comet. The scientist, clearly thrilled, is interviewed. Then, muh oppression was triggered. Taylor was wearing a cheesy bowling shirt with scantily clad (not naked) women on it. Even funnier, his friend, a female, made it for him. Oh no, what about muh oppression??
We have to go deeper.
No one knows why Taylor chose to wear that shirt on television during a massive scientific mission.
Oh, but we have an idea. His card carrying member of the vagina club friend made it for him for his birthday. It was probably a tribute.
No one asked him to take it off, because presumably they didn't think about it. It wasn't worth worrying about.
Probably because they were too focused on landing on a goddamn comet.
This is the sort of casual misogyny that stops women from entering scientific fields. They hear comments about "bitches" while out at a bar with fellow science students, and they decide to change majors.
This reminds me of the "ban bossy" meme that feminists created. If you can't handle upsetting language, you aren't fit to be a leader. Further, if a woman can't handle hearing the word "bitch" at a bar without having to run home and switch from physics to the gender studies program, who has the real mental illness here?
This is why we don't want women in groups where men are trying to get shit done. Why? It's the same reason that male siblings don't want their younger sister tagging along when it's time to play with the boys. This kind of morality policing and attention whoring happens in every field where women are not the majority over men. The myriad PC tentacles of these people are always trying to pull the rest of us down with their inane bullshit. Everything isn't about all about making me comfortable, why is the world so oppressive?!?! This is the perfect representation of how fucked and ridiculous our society has become.
This guy is part of a team that just landed on a comet with a mission that was 10 years in the making. These women can't even hear the word bitch without having a mental breakdown. And he has the problem? The comment section is filled with women crying and white knights talking about how "unprofessional" it is to wear that shirt. I can only dream of a future where the environment is even more "hostile" to these people as the PC shit finally recedes back into a sense of normalcy.
In the meantime, I hope all these fuckers die.
