This whole story is just beyond bizarre...and the craziest thing is that several of the articles on mainstream media outlets that were bashing Matt Taylor were actually written by DUDES.

For instance, the one posted on The Verge was not only penned by a guy but had a significant amount of male SJWs supporting the nonsense in the comment section.

Also, the insanity level is absolutely amazing. Rocket-scientist who just achieved the impossible celebrates dressed in a shirt with cartoons of sexy women and is shamed to such intensity that he goes on to issue a crying apology...

Meanwhile America's #1 girl Kim K is showing off her naked ass on the cover of some magazine and we get articles like "Moms can be sexy too. Stop slut-shaming Kim Kardashian" on Vox(dot)com (which is actually The Verge's parent company).

So hey which one is it? Sexy Women = Sexist and Demeaning or Sexy Women = Strong and Indepent? The answer is obviously whichever will benefit them the most at any given moment.

No, those are not dudes, and not men. They are pussified mangina cunts. Not men.

[–]elderstorm 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's an insult and a big fuck you to mother nature to call them men or even consider it at this point .

This whole story is just beyond bizarre...and the craziest thing is that several of the articles on mainstream media outlets that were bashing Matt Taylor were actually written by DUDES.

This whole story just confirmed my views on an alarming trend. The unbelievable power SJWs have. It is a small group but loud as fuck. Companies/people are so afraid about political correctness that even a downright ridiculous bagatelle is handled like a Watergate scandal.

What power did SJW have in this situation? I mean if Dr Matt Taylor and the whole European Space Agency just ignored this pathetic outcry there is nothing SJW could have done to seriously harm Dr Matt Taylor. Seriously what can they do if you just ignore them? Start a petition because of a shirt? Send him death threats to his Twitter account? Maybe I'm missing something but in my opinion the mistake was to take this seriously.

This is what makes me angry and ashamed. Every intelligent person knows how pathetic it is. The majority knows it. But nobody oppose this bullshit. His employer made him apology instead of supporting him. Like I said I see no serious harm if both, ESA and Dr Matt Taylor, just ignored it. After two weeks SJW would have a new scandal to talk about. His employer threw him under the bus. Dr Matt Taylor had two options: An apology or stand his ground and refuse to apology/ignore it. Do you really think ESA would have fired him if he just refused to apology? I don't think so. But without the support of his employer he felt pressured to apology or even worse, he is so wimpy that he thought he had to. I guess his tears lead on to the conclusion that he is a wuss.

The whole situation is just disgraceful. I'm even more mad/ashamed of Dr Matt Taylor and ESA than of SJWs. You can sum it up with the word fremdschämen.

[–]ArchetypalSage 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yeah I agree he handled it like a wuss, with the crying and apologies...yikes.

But you know, this is a feat that exists far beyond of what the average human could ever dream to achieve.

Think about the moment when the Philae lander touched the Comet. That's literally one of greatest achievements of mankind, acomplished with technologies developed by the brightest of our species over centuries of sweat and blood.

It outshines the great pyramids, magellan's circumnavigation, michelangelo's pieta, the freaking moon landing...you name it.

So regardless of how he handled it, the fact that lesser men and women get to shame one of the minds involved in this amazing feat and ruin his big day just pisses me the fuck off.

[–]WhiteE350 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I say never apologize. Unless you fucked something up and you are taking responsibility as a man. Because even when most people apologize they get fired anyway.

Why not keep your fucking dignity and focus on the reason your in the spotlight in the first place. What are the feminists and SJW's going to do? Are they going to run around mission control and pull the fire alarms and start bullhorning the scientists?

People need to stop enforcing rules that don't exist. By apologizing you are only lending to the legitimacy of bullshit unwritten rules.

[–]1User-31f64a4e 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Well, perhaps his options were constrained by the ESA - after all, it is a European political entity. As such, it will be highly sensitive to issues of public relations. I would be shocked if he wasn't called into an upper management office and ordered to apologize in order to salvage the scraps of his former career.

This is total bullshit; feminists complain coverage of Clinton, Thatcher and Palin dwells overmuch on what they are wearing ... then that's their primary concern with a rocket scientist who just accomplished the amazing.

[–]vakerr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

salvage the scraps of his former career

Any private space company would be happy to hire the lead scientist of such a mission. I'd have made my own statement (no apologies), and quit if the bosses have a fit.

[–]kellykebab 32 points33 points  (3 children)

It's okay to be a sexual object. It's not okay to like sexual objects. Makes sense, right?

    Every women is a double agent. She will sink your entire company if the prestige she get from doing it is more valuable to her than her job.

    Lets play spot the cognitive dissonance!

    Astrophysicist Katie Mack said earlier this week "I don't care what scientists wear. But a shirt featuring women in lingerie isn't appropriate for a broadcast if you care about women in science"

    [–]Hokuto199x 17 points18 points  (1 child)

    This is the part that pisses me off. She's a woman in science. She should be saying "if you have the passion and aptitude for science this guy's shirt would not hold you back..."

    Instead she for some reason went into girl power mode instead of looking at it rationally. She's an astrophysicist ffs; she has no excuse!

    [–]vakerr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    instead of looking at it rationally. She's an astrophysicist ffs

    Makes me seriously wonder if there's something fishy with how she obtained her credentials. Was it on her knees like Zoe Quinn?

    [–]vakerr 108 points109 points  (6 children)

    Nobody sane cares about "women in science". Those that can hack it, good for them. Whiny, crazy, destructive, attention whoring, drama queen cunts can fuck right off.

    Sane scientists (if they didn't know it yet) have now learned not to risk having women anywhere near any important team.

    [–]ashglass 7 points8 points  (2 children)

    This is what I hate about feminism. It completely goes backwards on itself and gives women an even worse reputation by stupid shit like this.

    [–]vakerr 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    There are plenty of other reasons to hate feminism.

    [–]Unfiltered_Soul 14 points15 points  (2 children)

    What is important to do when faced with something like this is to parry it off and keep on trucking. No matter what your accomplishments are people WILL find something wrong with it especially when it is posted nationwide. So fuck them right in the pussy for petty shit.

    [–]vakerr 40 points41 points  (1 child)

    This could have been the perfect moment to put feminists to their place:

    "Ladies and gentlemen, I just lead my team to achieve the greatest victory for mankind since the lunar landing. (wait for applause to die down) If all feminists can think of at such a time is a shirt, then it clearly shows how petty and dumb they are. Me and several million other guys really like this shirt. If you have a problem with it go pound sand. Thank you, this is the end of my statement."

    [–]thrway1312 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Unfortunately he was in a position such that he was speaking for the ESA; his superiors would never allow such a reasonable yet controversial statement.

      MechE student here: haven't heard a peep about this from the cumulative total of 5 girls across my classes this semester.

      [–]1Krackor 4 points5 points  (2 children)

      It's telling how much difference there is between students in something like astrophysics (which almost exclusively funnels into academia or a bureaucratic government organization) and something like MechE which funnels mostly into private industry.

      [–]thrway1312 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      To be fair I'm completing pre-reqs at a CC; many of my classmates are also CS, (astro)physics, EE, chem, math, etc. majors.

      I don't think any of my major classes (including very low level math) had >20% of female enrollment; all my soft science electives -- anthro, psych, archeo, philos, socio, etc. -- were at least 50-60% women.

      [–]HonestyVersusPC 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      The feminists were butthurt about a shirt

      Honestly I don't think feminists are even actually offended by a lot of the things they pretend to be offended about. In a lot of cases they just see things like this as opportunities to undermine successful men. It's about power and justifying themselves.

      [–]balalasaurus 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      What bothers me the most about this is the fact that feminazis everywhere are always going on about 'false standards of beauty' and how 'patriarchy forces women to dress a certain way'. What they've clearly done is force a standard on a person and dictated what they should and should not wear. Yet this same imposition is branded as a 'victory' for social justice. It's honestly pathetic.

      [–]angryadult 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      I'm a hiring manager at a STEM job, and I do everything I can to avoid hiring women. They're just too risky. Not only the feminazi risk, but so many of them are mothers -- demanding to come in a 10am and leave by 3pm to take care of their precious babies. If you don't let them or try to explain you are expecting an 8 hour workday, get ready for HR meetings and sensitivity training and all that. No guys are sitting around whining that 5 hours is too much work.

      [–]evafha 9 points10 points  (1 child)

      This is actually a common belief in Silicon Valley and I have done quite well for my company by hiring women who are not feminist/SJW/just want to write computer programs and not shower.

        Dear genius, don't say shit like this. If you're actually starting up your own business (big if), you need to be able to avoid publicly admitting to have an illegal hiring policy. Say lots less in general, listen to those in this sub who are past the anger phase. Contribute only after you've caught up.

        You're a brand new account that's just posting about how much you resent women. It's incredibly transparent.

        [–]Endorsed Contributorcocaine_face 3 points4 points  (4 children)

        Isn't it illegal to do that?

        [–]qwertthrowaway 9 points10 points  (0 children)

        Not hiring women based on that alone is illegal, yes. But 1) 95% applying will be men and 2) there was just another better candidate... who happens to be a man.

        [–]robot-b 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        You can't refuse to hire someone because of their sex, that would be discrimination

        but if someone wants to sue you under any antidiscrimination laws, they generally have to prove it. So unless you have made it clear to them by saying it or by having it written down as a policy, it will be hard to prove.

        you just have to have some kind of interview and assessment system that you can point to which selects the best candidate.

        Sometimes there is mandatory 'gender' reporting requirements but this is only really an issue for bigger companies, and even then they cannot force you to hire women but you may have feminist organisations run a boycott against you because of perceived discrimination if your workforce is all men.

        [–]IdiotPedant 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        Yes, it's very illegal and not even a smart policy. The "feminists" stirring the shit aren't the ones competing for skilled work in the tech field, they are probably unemployable twitter and tumblr users. The two worlds rarely meet, they wouldn't make it to an interview in the first place.

        The user that posted what you're responding to is a new reddit account that only posts about how he doesn't like women. He's got like 3 upvotes because occasionally people encourage immature anti-woman shit in threads where we are discussing a feminist is being an asshole. Don't encourage or take these people at their word. They're angry, that's all they are. There's no depth or wisdom to it.

        [–]dicklord_airplane 7 points8 points  (7 children)

        that's idiotic. you'll miss out on a lot of quality people if you assume that all women are terrible, and that will reduce your competitive edge in the market. women who actually have the drive to succeed in STEM are often different from these radfems, which is evident by the fact that lots of women work for Matt Taylor and did not raise any alarm over that silly shirt and his antics. my boss is an old female hippie who's extremely valuable in the oil industry, and my company would've been retarded if they avoided her just because she's a woman. most of my team in seismic processing for oil exploration are young women now, and they don't care about that guy's shirt either because they are serious, dedicated scientists. not all women are tainted by radfemmery, especially not amongst serious STEMers, trust me.

        i'm warning you that other professional STEM men will lose respect for you if you go around spouting this idiotic, prejudiced, narrow minded nonsense. cut that shit out and judge people as individuals, or else the good ones will be sure the avoid you and you'll be living in your self-fulfilling prophecy.

          [–]vpwnz 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          This is exceptionally on-point. I imagine if I was a guy in charge of hiring peeps, every event like this would just remind me to avoid hiring women just as a precautionary measure / screen them extra hard.

          [–]monsieurhire2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          Hmmmm... I was expecting more blubbering. It seemed like he was faking being upset, and that guy that patted him on the back with a smirk on his face. Yeah, I dunno. He seemed to get a little choked up, but it could have easily just been allergies. Looks like people took the bait.

          Also, you have to love how they're shaming him for crying. But had he not expressed remorse, they would have also been kicking him for being insensitive.

          He could have also spun it as "celebrating the beauty of women's bodies" with a smirk on his face.

          [–]1AreYouAware_ 161 points162 points  (44 children)

          Something to bear in mind, for those of you who might be just recently unplugging, is you might have been under some mistaken impression that we're living in an age where there is a new appreciation for the nerd, as he's finally taken his rightful place as an important and respected cornerstone of the world. Modern society would literally crumble without his knowledge and efforts, so surely this must make him powerful, desirable, and respected.

          Think again.

          All that's happened is that nerds are thought of at best as super beta bux ATMs, with insufferable personalities. At worst, those without a good job are just flat out repulsive with no redeeming qualities. Women in general, and feminists in particular hate nerds for everything except their money.

          You're probably not physically attractive, and you probably don't have social skills either. As for status, your job certainly has no prestige. You're either a peon working for the management, or you're the king nerd managing other nerds. If you're judged by the people you command and all you command is a Poindexter, a video game addict, and the dude who watches too much anime, then you're really not showing much value of your own. If a woman wants to be the Queen, then she is surely not going to settle for Queen of the Nerds.

          Pay close attention to what they're doing. They're taking your accommodation, your alliance, your sympathy... And they're chewing it up and spitting it right back in your face.

          [–]yeahweewee 78 points79 points  (17 children)

          the rise of the internet simply made nerds profitable, not cool great post

          [–]1AreYouAware_ 43 points44 points  (0 children)

          Indeed, not cool at all... But useful. Feminists see how desperate nerd culture in general is for female validation, and they play on that need to garner support. They make the nerds feel solidarity with them as fellow oppressed people. The line of thinking goes as such:

          Surely if we stand up and help out our oppressed sisters in their fight against the evil cool-kids club known as Patriarchy, we'll prove ourselves to them as worthy men and mates.

          So yes, they're in many ways the useful idiots of feminists. But certainly not cool nor desirable.

          [–]Redpillc0re 2 points3 points  (1 child)

          Nerds could always usually get a decent job and many of them made money alongside the public-facing CEOs. The internet however provided a better gathering place that makes nerds feel less isolated.

          [–]WardlyHasted 23 points24 points  (3 children)

          I dunno... crying on national TV is pretty weak. Not that crying automatically makes you less of a man, but there's a time and a place for it.

          Not to mention that someone like George Clooney or Russell Brand would have laughed at the fact that some woman was offended by their t-shirt.

          [–]vakerr 21 points22 points  (0 children)

          You need to realize this was a really emotional moment for him to start with. Culmination of a decades long mission, achieving a first for humanity, and the goddam lander is running out of electricity. Guy is an absolute hero. I'm really, really upset with these goddamn cunts who stirred up petty shit right at this moment. This is why we can't have nice things.

          [–]_BEENTRILL_ 0 points1 point  (1 child)

          C'mon, let the guy have his moment. Being a "man" doesn't mean you have to be a caricature. While I would try to avoid crying on national TV, you gotta look at the context of it

          [–]WardlyHasted 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          I am looking at the context of it. He cried while making an apology to a bunch of feminists. An apology he was making because they told him they didn't like his shirt.

          That's not something to cry about on national television.

          [–]frequentlywrong 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          His professional achievements don't make him an alpha in personal life. The two are completely separate. Like most nerds, he probably has poor social skills while being a badass at his job.

          [–]kellykebab 10 points11 points  (5 children)

          From what I've interpreted from TRP, being "alpha" basically means effectively managing one's social position, i.e. being a strong leader. Tattoos are a costume. They mean nothing. Holding a doctorate means you are smart and hard-working, not necessarily a leader. Wearing a "crazy" shirt means you either have a wacky sense of humor and a fun vibe or you are tone deaf to social conventions. Crying in public when you get in trouble for a non-issue strongly suggests the latter. Not very "alpha."

          [–]vakerr 3 points4 points  (3 children)

          This guy just lead to success a decades long mission and achieved a first for humanity. That's way more leadership then some bro posturing. If only we had more leaders like him.

          [–]kellykebab 1 point2 points  (2 children)

          Undoubtedly, this guy has achieved something exceptional. The crying and certainly the shirt do not take away from the fact that this guy is an impressive person. However, as I understand the concept, being alpha has a specific definition that has a lot to do with one's social ability, as it certainly does in the animal kingdom.

          Taken by itself Taylor's career accomplishments might be evidence of "alphaness", but his crying provides strong evidence to the contrary.

          Imagine if Obama broke down whenever North Korea insulted his leadership. Would we look up to him for this? Of course not! He'd be taking bullshit personally, a clear sign of weakness. Matt Taylor should have treated this issue the same way.

          Final thought: one can be a worthwhile person, without being " alpha."

          [–]_BEENTRILL_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          He led a 10 yr long mission SUCCESSFULLY and achieved something great for humanity. As far as I'm concerned, he could cry every time he's on national TV and still be "alpha" in my books

          Can you explain Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Steve Jobs, Steve Ballmer, Adolf Hitler, Albert Einstein, the founders of Google. These are all literally the most influential men of our time, whose work had has had an impact on every single human being on this earth, whose knowledge and efforts did make them the most powerful and respected men on this earth. Whether their inventions and power brought them women's desire is irrelevant, they still changed the very fundamentals of how we go about our daily lifes today.

          You are basing a mans worth of what a women thinks of him, which to me is completely against redpill way of thinking. You say "Pay close attention to what they're doing. They're taking your accommodation, your alliance, your sympathy... And they're chewing it up and spitting it right back in your face.", but yet WHO THE FUCK CARES, these men landed a fucking probe, on a fucking rock, through mathematical calculations they made 20 years prior, and you're trying to make this about why being a nerd doesn't matter cause women want alphas.

          I completely agree with you, a woman doesnt care whether a man can dominate numbers, she wants someone who can dominate her in bed, toss her around as though shes a ragdoll. But dude who gives a fuck, women are not all there is to life, I would rather be the dude that fucking lands a probe on a fucking comet, than the dude that slays a women in the bedroom. But thats just my 2 cents

          if you're judged by the people you command and all you command is a [whatever]

          Who are these hypothetical people that are being so critical of the company or partners in which we associate ourselves with?

          Honestly though.. I just don't see how your point even stands to reason as a valid form of argument, considering it's completely your opinion what constitutes a 'nerd'. I'm just going to go ahead and for the sake of the argument say 'nerd' here can be referred to as 'intelligent'.

          Sometimes there are people who are 'intelligent', but of course given their heightened awareness and clearly obvious mental dominance.. there are certain social stigmas that have been placed in society to prevent them from gaining dominance from mind alone, possibly even by lesser fortunate individuals who sought to even the playing field.

          Or maybe it's just a socio-biological thing of nature that has played out over time, where physical dominance always remains the superior factor in sustainable genetic structure.

          anyway explain like you're 5.. Uhh, 'nerds' are just people born with the smarts to realize an education will get you far in life. This was a personal decision and not one based on women, though a good job obviously gets you paid and laid. Society over time has somehow made the 'nerd', or 'pointdexter' [ ? ] stereotype that you have emblazoned in your mind. It's simply how you see the world and other beings better, it's easier to associate them with a certain type of personality or trait. Though in my opinion the term 'nerd' will quickly become a moot word, or begin to allow for more room for interpretation.

          tl;dr -> sorry for the rant, 'nerd' is a Bill O'Reilly kind of argument. Intelligent people obtain game changing knowledge for our society, and profit well from this.

          If you think wearing glasses and using technology or tools you don't understand is "nerdy" then you are hung up on the same social stigmas as the girls you are chasing. Not exactly thinking outside of the box are we?

          [–]g4zda 10 points11 points  (1 child)

          If you think that nerd just means intelligent, you're living in a cave and need to see Urkel in action. An intelligent person is just that, intelligent, and a nerd is someone that has poor social skills, doesn't have many friends and spends his time studying or playing video games (used to be Dungeons and Dragons). The ones that study get good and dependable jobs/careers so they're useful as BB.

          And being dependable and having a good job are no substitute for social skills and will usually get him a trophy wife that will cuckold him and take half in a divorce.

          [–]PookIsLovePookIsLife 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          Agreed.

          Even in tech, you can have intelligent yet socially aware men, like Elon Musk or Steve Jobs. On the other hand, you can have someone like Terence Tao, the "genius award" winning professor from UCLA who was recently on the Colbert Report who is clearly quite socially awkward.

          Most Americans working in tech tend towards socially awkward to autistic from what I've seen. Asians born in Asia are a different story, since many go into STEM fields purely for the career prospects.

          The old "the odds are good, but the goods are odd" phrase has some truth to it.

          [–]_BEENTRILL_ 5 points6 points  (7 children)

          This all implies that there is an objective opinion for "nerd"

          The traditionally "nerdy" interests and hobbies are far more socially acceptable now than they used to be. Obviously not get-you-laid acceptable like being a good sports player or whatever, but the idea of the stereotypical nerd isn't necessarily a basement dweller anymore, which is good for confident guys who like traditional "nerdy" hobbies.

          Your hobbies don't inherently say anything about you as a person, imo

          [–]1whatsazipper 2 points3 points  (6 children)

          Your hobbies don't inherently say anything about you as a person, imo

          On the contrary, they often say the most about a person, as hobbies are what a person does out of personal enjoyment.

          [–]1Krackor 2 points3 points  (4 children)

          Yeah, that's kind of the hobby equivalent of "sleeping with tons of guys doesn't make her a slut".

          [–]_BEENTRILL_ 0 points1 point  (3 children)

          But that's more of a direct result of an action

          Outside of generalizations, what does it reflect on someone's character that they enjoy programming, or collecting models, or whatever other "nerdy" hobby? Not really much.

          Of course these stereotypes exist for a reason and I would even say a majority of the people who enjoy these things are super beta, enjoying these things themselves doesn't inherently make you socially awkward

          [–]1Krackor 2 points3 points  (2 children)

          It might not say specifically that you're socially awkward. It certainly does say something about you though, even if that something is just that you enjoy that hobby. Your actions define you, even when those actions are just for a hobby.

          [–]_BEENTRILL_ 1 point2 points  (1 child)

          You're right, maybe I should've rephrased my original argument to convey more that your hobbies don't necessarily mean you fall into the general stereotype of that hobby.

          I just think that basing your life around a caricature of what a "man" should be is beta in itself - picking your hobbies not because you enjoy them but rather because they fit a stereotype of "manly" hobbies - basically leading your life to someone else's codes.

          [–]1Krackor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          Of course. Create your own frame, instead of conforming to someone else's, even if their frame is called "alpha".

          [–]_BEENTRILL_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          I guess I mean that just because you enjoy nerdy things doesn't inherently make you a beta fag.

          A hobby tells you about what they enjoy doing for fun but not any more about their character. There are drastically different people that share the same hobbies

          [–]robotghow 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          This is not new. Seventy years ago, a small group of scientists built the the most powerful weapon ever created by man. It was a doomsday device, one that could literally wipe out countries off the map. Did everyone tremble before them? Were their opinions about how to use this weapon respected or taken into consideration? No and no. They got their prestige, but it was worthless. The power, as always, remained in the hands of politicians, who are the alpha version of middle management.

          Are geeks becoming more and more important? Is a revolution coming? Even if so, it's going to take a fucking while.

          [–]DarkCircle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          You'd think with all the people claiming to be geeks and nerds it would finally be cool to be one. Nope. Doing that is a way of taking geek culture and claiming to be cool, while denying it. These people would flip their shit if a need tried to talk to them.

          [–]Ahib 57 points58 points  (2 children)

          he landed on a fucking comet, he can wear whatever he wants, he should be wearing it on some talk show and joking about it

          and then he should sell it on ebay

          [–]ThePedanticCynic 14 points15 points  (0 children)

          And have the female artist friend who made it modify the shirt to say that.

          [–]stickfiguresk 53 points54 points  (8 children)

          Is this what the female SJWs want? If it is, this is clearly sadistic and they get sexual pleasure from it.

          [–]Here2lrn 38 points39 points  (5 children)

          Nah, they just want to be told that they're the victim. That the reason they're not working in science is because the man is stopping them, not because they're not good enough.

          [–]evafha 5 points6 points  (2 children)

          I don't think it's that they're not good enough, more like, very few of them want to make the sacrifices required to land a spaceship on a comet. What was Isaac Newton doing when he was 22? Staying up late in his room studying math and physics, not going on Tinder dates and getting free drinks.

          [–]Here2lrn 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          Personally, I don't want to make those sacrifices either. But I'm not kicking and screaming and demanding the standards be lowered to accommodate my lazy, party boy ass.

          Don't even want to watch the video. I just have a feeling in my soul that seeing this man cry because of some dumbass feminist will fill me with rage. The man helps a team accomplishes the incredible and these fucking bitches make it about gender equality.

          [–]ThePedanticCynic 27 points28 points  (2 children)

          You know what will make you rage harder? The realization that feminists everywhere were smirking and laughing as they saw this. They feel they've won something by breaking this fucking genius down into tears over a non-issue to anyone with two fucking brain cells.

          This situation is how you know civilization is really heading downhill.

          It's a technological milestone that'll be in the history books, and the amount of effort behind it is well beyond what these feminists can even begin to comprehend.

          And now one of the scientists that made this happen, a genius with probably a hundred times the mental capacity of all these feminists combined, is subject to a witch hunt because his SHIRT WAS OFFENSIVE.......

          God damnit guys....i'm past the anger phase, or so i thought, because seeing this picture just makes my fucking blood boil.

          Not a pussy. He probably never heard of anything like this. The reporter was American and third wave feminist from America are usually obnoxious. He simply wouldn't know people would get offended by a shirt he probably has been wearing for a long time. He genuinely felt he was doing something wrong. Once someone tells him how filthy these SJWs are he will realise he wasn't wrong. The real question is, do you want people who further humanity like him to worry about non issues like this bullshit.

          [–]WardlyHasted 10 points11 points  (0 children)

          Honestly, this makes me sick. If you do a quick Google search for the name, "Matt Taylor", all of the top hits are articles about him apologizing for his shirt or bullshit SJW blog posts about how his shirt is misogynistic.

          The man was responsible for the most important space-based mission since the moon landing and this is what's being reported. A mission that was 10 years in the making, that required an incomprehensible amount of preparation and technical knowledge.

          This is an absolute travesty. Shame on the "authors" who choose to write these pieces, but more importantly, shame on the publications who decide to allow this trash to be published as "news".

          [–]aazav 8 points9 points  (1 child)

          [–]Shellworld 12 points13 points  (1 child)

          Whenever this man looks back on the greatest achievement of his life it will be looked back on by him with shame and humiliation. I don't think women understand the psychological repercussions that a man will face after crying publicly on camera. It's one thing to say "Oh, he's a real man who isn't afraid to show his feelings. Being a mature grown man this wont phase him"... But really, they fucked up his life and tarnished his life's work. Tomorrow he could discover a method for limitless energy, but he'd avoid announcing it due to anxiety over public humiliation.

          [–]tatti_ke_tukde 8 points9 points  (0 children)

          This wasn't some class project. It was probably the highlight of his career, something which will be a significant memory for him. Imagine if someone ruins it like this for you. How do you justify this? This is the main reason I am pissed of and genuinely feel bad for him. There are better ways this could've been communicated to him if it was really a problem (In private)

          No one has the right to steal and spoil this great and memorable moment like this from anyone. It is a crime in my eyes.

          The sense of entitlement these people feel is dangerous. Some guy commented a couple of days back on trp saying we are a generation of people who are entitled to every fucking thing in the world.

          Also, I was reminded of this video

          http://youtu.be/vzmbW4ueGdg

          where a tranny SJW, when given the opportunity to ask a question to one of the greatest programmers of our generation, asks whether he is doing anything to fairly represent trannies in the oculus team. Any programmer with a rational Britain would feel honoured to speak to John and look how this SJW utilised such a golden opportunity.

          http://unqualified-reservations.blogspot.com/2013/09/technology-communism-and-brown-scare.html

          The logic of the witch hunter is simple. It has hardly changed since Matthew Hopkins' day. The first requirement is to invert the reality of power. Power at its most basic level is the power to harm or destroy other human beings. The obvious reality is that witch hunters gang up and destroy witches. Whereas witches are never, ever seen to gang up and destroy witch hunters.

          ... We do not see Pax Dickinson and Paul Graham ganging up to destroy Gawker. We see them curling up into a fetal position and trying to survive. An America in which hackers could purge journalists for communist deviation, rather than journalists purging hackers for fascist deviation, would be a very different America. Ya think?

          Whereas the real America, the America in which a journalist little more than an intern, with no discernible achievements but a sharp tongue, a Columbia degree and trouble using MySQL, can quite effectively bully one of the most accomplished hackers of his era, not to mention a way better writer - this is the remarkable America that we live in and need to explain.

          ... Just as pornography can stimulate the human sex drive without providing any actual sex, democracy can stimulate the human power drive without providing any actual power. But one of the problems with American democracy today is that it's far too constant. It's like a single page ripped out of Playboy, pinned up in your prison cell. Fifty years ago it was still enthralling, even though your forebrain may have known it was meaningless. But eventually even your hindbrain figures out that it's just a piece of paper with some ink on it. And it sure doesn't help that your forebrain knows the real lady in the picture, while real and actually female, is actually on Social Security by now.

          Witch-hunting on a purely informal basis, Popehat's "social consequences," scratches the political perfectly, because of course here is actual power - the power to harm other human beings - being exercised by ordinary people who are not mysterious DC bureaucrats. Never, ever understate how fun it is to just chimp out for a minute. If you mock it, it's because you've never had a chance to be part of the mob.

          [–]evafha 8 points9 points  (1 child)

          Correct, realistic response that you could actually give today, not some fantasyland:

          "Yesterday, in my excitement over our landing the first spacecraft on a comet [demonstrates achievement], I failed to realize that my image would be seen by millions of people around the world who were tuning in for this historic human achievement. As the leader of the team [demonstrates status], I was focused entirely on the mission [demonstrates focus], and I accidentally wore a shirt which was unsuitable for broadcast television seen by millions of children worldwide [frames complainers as children].

          I apologize for any hurt feelings my clothing choice may have caused [the blame is on the clothing]. I fully support all efforts to get more young people, especially young girls, into science and technology-related fields, and hope that a young girl might be inspired by yesterday's historic achievement to one day pilot a spacecraft to a comet and land on it herself."

          In all fairness, he probably had to cry or feign some form of sincere sympathy if he wanted to keep his job- yes, even after landing a probe on a fucking comet. Work places take their EEO reputation very seriously, as stupid as it is.

          Certainly doesnt excuse how stupid this whole situation is, however.

          [–]tatti_ke_tukde 21 points22 points  (2 children)

          You don't see. This type of fake reactions are expected in companies dealing with consumers. Not from people who have nothing to do with other humans. Environments where people like him work usually are lax about attire and social skills so they can concentrate more on the real work on not the bullshit. I don't think he was forced to do this. This is simply a very unfortunate incident. I hope someone gives him the message that he wasn't wrong in the slightest.

          [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          The problem is that he works for a public agency and was in the public spotlight. At some point, some elected official stands to lose from this. Shit flows downhill.

          At least The Telegraph gets it

          I was getting worried that we were the only people talking about the absurdity here. I just don't get it, this idea that being offended is justification (for anything). Being offended does not establish that anything is actually wrong. Being offended only indicates what the offended party is willing to spend energy expressing themselves about, which they should do with a therapist. I can remember specifically being told to "brush it off," "turn the other cheek," "move on," and "let it roll right off your back," all throughout childhood. When was it ever cool to be the complainer in the group?

          Interesting side note: did y'all see the oiled up amateur pornstar on the cover of Paper? What a strong role model.

          [–]1 Endorsed Contributorvandaalen 4 points5 points  (0 children)

          I've been linked to some feminist shithole website, which name I gladly forgot, with an article on that issue and I couldn't finish reading it, because my fucking blood began boiling.

          The inevitable conclusion, which that cunt drew was, that "subtle misgynistic things like these are the cause because women feel uncomfortable entering the STEM field".

          No they are not you envious, solipsistic asshole. Most women simply aren't interested in that stuff. Big news, huh?

          Besides of that most of the women lack the dedication to end up in such a position and be able to execute such a delicate task, because you are just lazy beings who will only do the bare minimum you are required to, but still feel like you deserve a "Worker of the year"-medal once you accomplish the goals set in your contracts. You won't learn how to stear such a machine from making your orbiting co-workers do the work for you, while you cash in the rewards.

          As a European it also leaves me baffled, how such non-news can have this big of an impact. Over here he would have been shamed for his bad taste at most. I mean, come on, it indeed is a shitty shirt, but I don't believe anybody would have mentioned it all.

          I've just got the hopes, that this is this guy's wake up call, and in five years, he won't be such a blue-pill-pussy anymore.

If you know how fucking ridiculous they are, it would be as if you are smiling at children. You don't break down & start crying. Turn the computer off, do some light reading & go about your day as if nothing happened.

          He probably has never met anyone so stupid yet bold enough like that reporter. When I met or shared the room with ultra smart people, I knew to shut up and listen and talk only if I really knew my shit. Reporters don't have in depth knowledge of any topic in the world. Couple that with an SJW mindset and you've created the perfect entitled cunt.

          That is clearly one of the reasons that women dont go to STEM. Reason #2 is that it's hard. Higher order nonlinear equations are oppressive and patriarchal, as has been clearly and scientifically proven by generations of feminist warriors. Reason #3 is it requires work and original thinking. Let's admit it the universe has bent its laws to favor men. It's impossible for a sensitive woman to work with such hostile nature.

          As men, we really need to work hard to change the universe so that we can finally have magical unicorns in STEM fields, gentlemen. They are then Only Ones who can teach us how to dress.

          This pisses me off tremendously. This mans achievement is humankind level of importance and feminists are concerned about a fucking shirt.

          Fuck them. Fuck all of them. I will not remember this man because of a shirt. I will remember him because he is now a fucking legend to science and all man kind.

          The only thing holding back women is women wanting their /r/PussyPass.

          [–]jrdnsln 4 points5 points  (1 child)

          I don't even wanna watch this. You would think Feminists would be excited about humanity getting one step closer to populating a planet without men.

          [–]ThePedanticCynic 6 points7 points  (0 children)

          You misunderstand. They don't want us gone, they want us enslaved.

          [–]648262 1 point2 points  (2 children)

          An interesting observation is that the only place I've seen mention of his shirt and feminists problem with it is in TRP. Though that might say more about me and where I read my news than anything else.

          The dude is a hero in my book though. yes, he apologized when he should not have, but his achievement is in science - not in being a man.

            I don't care what that guy wears and the reaction to the shirt are ridiculous but let's be honest it's kind of a dumb choice and shows he is pretty oblivious and lacks self-awareness, eg. almost omega type like albeit he doesn't look like an omega.

            [–]ExistentialDread 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            This is exactly why women shouldn't work in STEM. They want to slam on the brakes and dogpile anyone who hurts their feelings. That's not the way science works. Science isn't a democracy, and it doesn't care about your feelings.

            [–]Seductivethunder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            They're saying he deserved it because of what he was wearing? Gosh, that sounds familiar.

            [–]JovianTrainWreck 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            This completely reinforces my belief that feminists are just begging to be hate-fucked. It's not rape if they're begging for it

            Joking aside, this shit should really be in the national news cycle. It won't be, because news media is in bed with feminism. Which pisses me off. I'm no expert on social media, but can't we use it to bring attention to this issue?? There are enough people out there that are sick and tired of feminism for this to gain traction! If 'gamergate' or whatever can hit the spotlight, why can't this?

            [–]infernalsatan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            I would like to try an experiment. I would make breakthrough in female health science, and I'm going to wear the same shirt in the public announcement.

            Let's see what the feminists are going to focus on.

            (Well, I'm not a scientist so I can't really carry out this experiment. But I do encourage anyone who is in this field to do this)

            Kicking it under the rug on the feminism subreddit

            If they do have any discussion of the subject over there, they didn't even bother to mention his name.

            When a wise man points at the moon, the imbecile examines the finger.

            [–]Here2lrn 4 points5 points  (4 children)

            It's a bullshit overreaction, but that's the world we live in right now. Take the world as it is, not as you'd like it to be. If you have to do any kind of public speaking; put a damn suit on and have a pre-rehearsed speech with lots of politically correct goodness.

            [–]vakerr 2 points3 points  (3 children)

            On one hand you're right, that is the safe thing to do. On the other hand if no one stands up to these destructive morons they will just keep demanding more and more. They need to be told that they are morons and need to fuck off.

            [–]TakeYourSoma1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            Appeasement: not even once.

            [–]ThePedanticCynic 2 points3 points  (1 child)

            The problem is women live longer than men, don't die in wars, and aren't involve in industrial accidents; so they are the majority vote. Politicians want the woman vote, and have shown they're willing to sell us out to do it.

            [–]alclarkey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            Feminists win this round.

            Maybe, or maybe we need to have more of the crazy under the spotlight for people to see.

            [–]kellykebab 3 points4 points  (0 children)

            What have been the concrete consequences to Matt Taylor's career?

            My impression is that he's received some bad press in blogs and on Twitter. However, he works in an industry that is still (mostly) shrouded from the press and not particularly reliant on public opinion.

            Am I ignorant of some part of the story? He's not losing his job, right?

            [–]2asd1100 4 points5 points  (4 children)

            Let me be clear on one thing. He is a pussy, you can not save a pussy, especially from himself.

            On the subject. It doesn't matter. Women will bitch and jump on any news story they can. By engaging with their idiotic pretences you are just making it a legitimate dialog.

            Treat it like a shit test: "I don't care if he has a sex dungeon filled with feminist, he contributed to mankind's development. If you consider that can be downplayed because of his sexism or even more retardedly by a shirt, you are a idiot and issues like this are what really set women back and make actual sexism and feminism a joke."

            [–]jmg83 5 points6 points  (3 children)

            Pussy or not, he's still a brilliant man, who has potentially set humanity on a new course. Personally, in his position, I'd have told them all to fuck off. Then again, I'm not as smart as he is, so I wouldn't be in his position.

            [–]cashmoney_x 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            Notice the woman in the video SUPPRESSING A SMIRK when he starts to cry?

            It's all there folks, all of it. Just gotta look.

            [–]rednukleus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            Gosh they really cracked him, huh. I would have said nothing, made no public comment about it, and retired the shirt. Maybe I would state that it was a gift handmade by a female friend. Other than that I would let it die out on its own. I can't even watch his apology after he starts to cry. His apology surely fell on deaf ears.

            For all those saying this was an American feminist thing, you are mistaken. GB is so fucking conquered by the left-feminist it's shocking.

            [–]MaegorTheCruel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            Funny how they said he deserved it because of what he was wearing. Doesn't that sound familiar? And they say you shouldn't judge a girl for what she's wearing, and if she gets raped when she's wasted and dressed like a slut that she didn't deserve it regardless. But now they're crucifying a man for wearing a shirt of women. You know what I hate about most women? How personally they take things. Like, don't like his shirt? Don't fucking think about it. End of story. They're trying to force their insecurities on everyone and they've ruined this man's biggest day of his life. If I could smack every tumblr feminazi who participated in this witch hunt, I would. Additionally, I'd also rip out their uterus so they can't possibly pass along their horrible ideals and double standards. Fucking pathetic.

            [–]2lightfire409 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            The more sinister take is this guy knew exactly what to say to drive hundreds of thousands of clicks to his article. But its likely this dude truly believes they fucking shirt the scientist wore is a problem. So fuck him either way.

            [–]Transmigratory 0 points1 point  (1 child)

            Haven't seen the feminists in question complain, but I'll willing to hazard a guess and say they're ugly and/or fat.

            [–]Nerf_Circus[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            That's pretty much ticket to ride the feminist hate train. With the exception of the new wave of tumblr feminists are majority of the attractive feminists, guessing once they hit their 20's and ovaries start screaming to reproduce they are going to forget what a rape culture promoting jerk the college quarter back is.

            [–]hairaware 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            I hope he does something equally great later on. realizes this was stupid and wears an even more offensive shirt.
