That could've been worse.

Oh, let's kill that noise right now.

At first glance I thought that was Michael Jackson.

DeaH: Fair question. Let me reply with another question, do you not hire someone like Neil deGrasse Tyson because the guys like to sit around telling racist jokes?

Neil would probably respond by making a gesture with both hands and implying sarcastically that the person making the joke is of an intimidating character and should be avoided.

a large number of women have floating through their lives on the wave of affirmative action in the sciences with the buoyancy of their tits. One example, is a girl i got put into a group with. she did nothing for 2 months while the men did all of the work. she specifically chose her senior design group to be men that wouldn't care if she did nothing. She got a job with Boeing as a freshman for going to a society of women engineers meeting. She has her rent paid for by her boyfriend. She has a pussy whipped nice guy make her breakfast every morning. its really sad and i have zero respect for her because she uses her gender as a replacement for merit.

There's not much I love more than a sexy science nerd chick. However, I can't see a sexy science nerd chick being as cool as this guy:

Just embrace your latent alcoholism and come over to the geology/paleontology dark side. Lord knows Ghastly, you'd make a better girl than some of the earthy ones we already have. I guess that's what all the booze is for.

As a female scientist, I'm getting a kick...
Well, not.

The problem is, if as a woman you're interviewing in a very specialized field and you're not getting hired after repeatedly rising to the in person interview stage, is it because you suck at being a scientist, or are the guys that they're hiring instead just better? You can't complain about the process or outcome even if the sexism is obvious because otherwise you get a reputation as a sour grapes biatch.


- No faculty position early, no play later. Self-defeating.
- Sexism in current academia drives women into hiring by pharm/industry when there's nothing else offered.
- Many intramural NIH groups are heavily male. As are University faculty by department. Still.
-aggressive attitudes and culture are rewarded.

It's only because men are better at science than women.
