my drafts are a train wreck
Things were so much simpler before women started stealing all of my favorite things from me. I don’t care what anyone says. Women aren’t and will never be…
When I say something that should not be controversial
Why aren’t 50% of coal miners women? Why not 50% of janitors or pest control workers? Don’t forget front line military!
Likewise, why aren’t men 50% of college enrollment and 50% of teachers?
We should eliminate the stupid “personal choice” thing because forcing people into certain professions is way more fun.
THIS IS NOT ABOUT FORCING PEOPLE INTO PROFESSIONS
THIS IS ABOUT WOMEN GOING INTO SCIENCE BEING DISCOURAGED
THIS IS ABOUT WOMEN BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST
FIRST, WHAT GBT SAID.^
FUNNY YOU SHOULD MENTION WOMEN COAL MINERS. BECAUSE I STUDY THEM. AND GUESS WHAT?
Women had to fight court cases to be allowed into coal mines as workers. Once a few women paved the way, thousands of women followed in short suit because on average, their incomes increased 500% over working as domestic workers, doing textile piecework and waitressing. Some saw their income jump 1000%.
Dig a little deeper, and you’ll find women have been mining coal for centuries. They were pushed out in the Victorian period because the mansplainers of the day could tolerate women wielding such a phallic object as a shovel underground with male workers present. And wearing pants! Still, women disguised themselves as men to work in the mines.
Oh, and World War II. Where did all the coal come from then? Oh, that’s right. Women. Women who were expected to stand aside and let the men take their jobs when the war was over and were denied benefits when they later developed black lung.
I feel like some people don’t realize the kind of discouragement women receive. It’s not like people stop them from majoring in science every chance they get, though that wouldn’t surprise me.
My brilliant friend was told she was trying to invade the “boys club of science” as an undergraduate by a male graduate student at a school not exactly hard to get into. She’s now studying at John Hopkins btw.
I know someone who was denied her degree by a man she had studied under because she switched labs since he was constantly commenting on her appearance and asking her out. When she tried to report him to the department head, she was told she dressed too revealingly and was just too flirty. In the end she got her degree because the other board members pressured him.
Another friend was constantly getting asked out by her boss but she couldn’t leave the lab because she needed the money.
The science itself can be sexist. In neuroscience, most experiments focus on males. The reason generally given: it’s easier. The menstrual cycle does have an influence on the brain but instead of looking into it, it’s widely ignored.
Can vouch for the science boys’ club thing…going from my undergrad (where the chemistry dept is mostly female professors, my research advisor was female, fellow researchers were all female) to grad school (male advisor, all male research group, and we shared lab space with another male-led all male group) was really intimidating and I felt really out of place. I didn’t feel like I could ask anyone for help and just felt really stupid in general.
Oh my god, I wonder why the military isn’t 50% women? Could it have anything to do with THE MASSIVE SEXUAL ASSAULT PROBLEM COUPLED WITH THE MASSIVE COVERING UP OF SEXUAL ASSAULTS PROBLEM? BUT SURE PERSONAL CHOICE BLAH BLAH BLAH WHAT IS CONTEXT.
if god hates lesbians then why did he make girls so cute

Science Fact: You are very attractive. Maybe not to yourself, maybe not to your significant other, but somebody out there thinks that you are the hottest potato in town.
Fucking excuse you this is a science fact, not a true or false question on your 10th grade history midterm.
A 9 year old gets torn apart for carrying a puppy purse, told she’s not really acting in the movie she got nominated for an Oscar for, and then, when she’s called a cunt by a satirical newspaper, told she deserves it for being rude.
Meanwhile, we can’t be too hard on Jennifer Lawrence for all the ableist and racist shit she’s said/acted in because she’s only 22.
DING DING DING.
I’m going to throw up
I hated that part because it was so emotional and it showed how strong Dirk is… he was struggling to put his head in the box because of the small chance that Jake wouldn’t go through with it and then Dirk would actually die.
