Wow. Read all of the comments. The level of butthurt that someone would DARE post a list of sexy FEMALE scientists is amazing.

Heh. The comments on his hot atheists post are equally insipid.

Apparently common-sense atheism involves filling your vagina up with lots of sand.

I am amazed they were able to shorten that list to anything below 9000. I guess they must only know 15.

I once met a German Particle Physicist who looked exactly like the hot blond from Lethal Weapon 2.

No shiat, EXACTLY. Had a great personality too.

Drew, it's your site and you're free to do what you like with it. This is one of my favorite places on the 'nets. But as a feminist, I am disappointed when one group I care strongly about marginalizes the other.

We are all attracted to human forms of some kind and there's nothing wrong with that. For me, the problem with a post like this is that, rather than celebrate human sexuality, it reinforces the cultural notion that women are valueless (regardless of career choice or ideological stance) unless they conform to a rigid notion of physical attractiveness.

If you enjoy looking at these women, that's fine. But posting this shows a disrespect to your female readership by exhibiting willful blindness to the hardships they face in being taken seriously in academic pursuits. You could have gotten around that by being more inclusive.

As a female physics grad student I agree. That and we should post a list of hot male scientists to offend everyone and appease the females (because hey, that works for me).

Obligatory you sound fat, etc...

But seriously - well first, Drew didn't make the list so I'd suggest that this would be better aimed at the author of the site. And secondly, I'd actually suggest there is more of an argument of reverse discrimination between physical attractiveness and scientific fields. I had to read the cheerleader pictured twice when I saw "rocket scientist" listed, not because I didn't think a lady could be rocket scientist, but I was surprised that someone who looked as hot as she does would be a rocket scientist.

And on top of that, there exists a stereotype wherein people think that hot girls have it easier than guys and less attactive girls because of their looks, and thereby are less qualified. "I can't get anyone to take me seriously because they think I've got where I am because of my boobs and not my brains".

funny. your feigned misunderstanding of my point,actually places emphasis on my point. its easier to dismiss the comment than take a google moment or 2 to seek out some ethnic diversity for this particular post. why should you..? you arent racist... you have plenty of Black friends and you love Jay-Z and Darius Rucker... ;-0 trust me, I get it. its not Drew's to make everyone happy, comfortable or welcome. its Drew's, he can run it as he wishes. i just thought he may appreciate the feedback.

but thanks for at least replying.

peace.

Andromeda: we should post a list of hot male scientists to offend everyone

I'm not really offended by pictures of "hot" people, no matter the gender. If it bugs me, I don't look.

I do get offended when people say they listen to Morrissey on purpose, though.
 
2010-07-19 04:41:58 AM  
Its not offensive, its just stupid. the list compiler just googled 'female scientist' and picked pictures he thought were hot.

Some of them arent scientists and some of them arent hot.. You expect a list like this to contain people the compiler knows about and finds sexy, both physically and personality-wise.

bleh.

THIS. Besides, this list was lazy as hell. Most of these women are slightly above-average in looks and low-level scientists (if they can even be called that). It's insulting that this is the best list he could come up with.

Oh, and Ms. Shankardass? I'd shank dat ass.

I could compile a list of about the same quality just going through female grad students in my own department at a relatively small university. The list also included at least a few undergrads, thta really opens up the list.

Meh.
