Hey Shychemist. I've been following your blog for awhile and I want to bring up something that seems dated but nonetheless holds to be accurate today. I feel like the girls who consider themselves to be on the science side of tumblr to be horribly mistaken. It's statistically proven that women applicants struggle to get into stem doctorate programs, and rightfully so, they don't belong there. examples- atomic-o-licious, brainsx , adventuresinchemistry, i can't fit anymore but you get it
It doesn’t seem dated, your attitude is dated. This is the 21st century.
Women deserve to be in STEM programs just as much as men. I’d wager they deserve to succeed in the Sciences even more than men because of the sexism and misogyny they experience.
They struggle to get in because they’re the minority, and a lot of people who could admit them are sexist (regardless of gender) because of the society they grew up in. Its not through any intellectual weakness. These women are amazing and just as smart as the men in their fields.
You have no right to say these things to these amazing women, many of whom I consider to be friends.
Saving the world and conversations. Well played SuperheroTexts.
I tend not to share Buzzfeed articles but I’ll make an exception when they’re about a site I created! My thoughts:
1. Woo hoo, exposure!
2. Oh my god they used so many link backs! That is huge guys, so many list sites just take our images and either don’t link back at all or put one little hyperlink hidden somewhere. This was super great of them.
3. For some reason most of the link backs are to our twitter instead of the main site, but whatever.
4. The guy who compiled this has to be a super nerd. He chose some of the most obscure jokes we’ve ever run. He used the one about Mogo. MOGO! Who does that?
