    Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

    We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

    No justice, no peace.

    You are not a burden.

    You are not a bother.

    You enhance the lives of others.

    People smile, not groan, when you text them.

    Your voice.

    Your presence.

    You, matter.

The original is good, the comment is STUNNING. Love it!

So, basically, this is a symbolic representation of internalized misogyny:

    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.

    image
    Wow. That seems like really fucking wrong. And offensive.
    And I would love to take some more time out of my day to be pissed about it.
    But…
    image

    It seems that I have a lot of fucking science to do. 
    So, uh, screw that.
    If anybody needs me, me and my lady bits will be getting some fucking science done.

    image

    I’m oddly excited to have been name checked by this shitty anon. Because it means that the very fact that I got into an Ivy League, top 15 science PhD program (where I fucking belong) is a giant fuck you to shitty anon. Also, shitty anons make Lewis sad. Because Lewis is a feminists science hippo.

    imageBest way for me to deal with shitty nonnies who think women can’t do science? DO MORE SCIENCE!!!! MWAHAHAHA

    Crap, I’m a woman biologist. I’d go get another career but I have a groundbreaking thesis on rapid evolution of reproductive isolation between seed beetle populations to finish. 

    I’m not a well-known tumblr scientist…but I am a scientist all the same. And while I could probably obtain a more gender-appropriate occupation… I’m pretty content with the fact I’m an atmospheric chemist Additionally, I am also one of the few women who have managed to be selected to intern at NASA’s airborne research program.

    Do I not deserve a place in the STEM fields, anon? 

    Hey ladies! Mind if some physicists join in?

    At the CERN visiting the CMS part of the LHC where were were working for 8 months on both computational and experimental work:

    Oh, me? What do I do? I try to understand why superbursts happen in neutron stars! This is important because: they shouldn’t happen but they do. And the implications could be astoundingly helpful for things like, oh I don’t know, nuclear fusion.

    Oh, just me, at a conference after presenting this:

    So yeh anon, you’re wrong and very very very outdated in your opinions 

    oh wow this anon thinks that women don’t belong in STEM—

    better throw my archaeology B.A. in the trash, burn my thesis and stop teaching biology, chemistry and physics to the 8-12th grades.

    OH WAIT

    SCIENCE TO DO

    NO TIME FOR SEXIST MAN CHILD ANONS

    oh I guess I should burn the cheque I got for guest lecturing in grad school too—

    Sorry, no time to answer douchey anon. To busy getting paid handsomely to do research things like this

    image

    While dressed fabulously like this

    image

    Because unlike the bullshit movies would tell you, geologists don’t wear white lab coats. Something to do with all that dirt. 

    I’d tell my grad school and all the funding bodies that gave me a fellowship and research grants that they were totally mistaken because girls don’t science well except OOPS ALREADY GOT MY MS IN GEOLOGY, TOO LATE. 

    Well darn. Guess I better just get back to doing science instead.

    Okay, one last post for Math and Science Week/Future of STEM because it’s just too good, and I didn’t officially end the week yesterday as I meant to. Enjoy! You can read all the Week’s posts here.

    "I loved you, always.”

    going to comment a little on this game: the overseeing voice talks as if it owns you, and defies your free will. if you follow its orders, you are praised, and the worldview becomes sharper and more detailed. if you don’t, you are chastised, and the world becomes more vague and difficult to navigate, but also more colourful and loud. it’s odd, and sort of eerie, but definitely interesting. take it as you will.

    This game really unsettles me. It unsttles me that my first choice to obey, and when I played again and disobeyed, I got really emotional really fast. Failure hurt me more the more I disobeyed. It was… interesting to experience.

    i’ve always said we are trained to obey more than to think.

    holy shit. i reblogged this the first time without playing. then i played in and it is terrifying. i very much like this, but it will give you intense feelings. 

    What’s the game??

    you obey everything the game tells you too, even jumping into barbs and basically killing yourself. if you dont youre chastised and even the scolding is terrifying

    So, essentially, it’s a game that illustrates what it’s like to be in an abusive parents or an abusive relationship - and how it affects you emotionally. That is horrific and ingenious - the next time someone negates the affects of emotional abuse, I’ll take them to this game and let them come to their own conclusions.

    This game absolutely gets it. The most solid and reliable degradation is a gendered insult. The more you obey and co-operate, the better understanding you seem to have of your word, and things seem easier. But what really gets me is the contradiction. You are not allowed to have the correct answer. Are you a boy or a girl? The answer is no, I will give you the answer. even towards the end, your “praise” is “no, I will give you the answer. You earned this answer, but it is given to you by me.” Disobeying makes the world frightening and confusing and difficult, but beautiful in a world devoid of flavour.

    Not just a gendered insult, either. The nameless voice that directs the player’s actions is supposed to be a hateful, abusive monster, and when the game’s designers asked themselves “okay, what’s the most degrading, dehumanising thing this voice could possibly do to the player?”, the answer they came up with was “deliberately misgender them”.

  14. "Jury duty at a rape trial? Acquit!" says MRA Paul Elam

    fuckyeahfeminists:

    feministingforchange:

    sneferie:

    misandry-mermaid:

    A Voice For Men (MRA website) founder Paul Elam would rather see a male rapist walk the street freely than charged for his crime.

    He admits that he would never convict a rapist, even one who is unequivocally guilty.  He claims it’s because the “system is rigged” (ironically, it is, but not in favor of the victim), but it’s obvious that he would really do this because he doesn’t think rape should be a crime.

    But MRAs are more about helping men with legitimate problems than oppressing women at every opportunity, right? Get the fuck away from me right now if you don’t think the MRM is a hate movement.

    This is disgusting and deplorable.

    ugh
