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.

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.

image

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

image

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:

Presenting our research at a conference on Physics of Living Systems:

And visiting the Wind Tunnel experiment after presenting our research at Max Planck Institute at a Advances in Cardiac Dynamics Workshop

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.

image

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

image

"don’t belong there"?! excuse you! 
Im not a science tumblr but i am a girl and a geologist so i kinda prove you wrong…?

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
image

I’ve got image 

SCIENCE TO DO

image

NO TIME FOR SEXIST MAN CHILD ANONS

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

image

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.

       ”It’s become clear that the men in our lives are too busy with hubris, bad jokes, and         secrets to worry about saving the world. Well, ladies, I propose a secret of our own.”S.H.I.E.L.D. has fallen. Part hostile takeover, part gross negligence. In the wake, the world is left without leaders. Without direction. Spared the reputation of her predecessor, Director Maria Hill (Smulders) has chosen the proactive approach to protecting the planet from threats both terrestrial and intergalactic. 
Taking two of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s former elites with her, Agent Sharon Carter (VanCamp) and the enigmatic Black Widow (Johansson), Hill embarks on the monumental quest of establishing a team of superheroes to call her own. She calls upon the strongest woman she knows, the Lady Sif of Asgard (Alexander), along with the smartest, Pepper Potts (Paltrow) to round out the team: five fearsome Avengers ready to perform the work the men aren’t fit to do. 
The team, dubbing themselves The Secret Avengers, quickly makes an enemy of a HYDRA cell run by the white-knuckle Viper (introducing Emily Blunt to the role), one of their top agents. Caught in the crossfire is another one of the organization’s top assassins, Jessica Drew (introducing Meghan Ory), known as Arachne, who has been brainwashed into believing S.H.I.E.L.D. is the enemy. 
Following an attempt on Pepper Potts’ life, Agent Carter and Sif capture the masked assassin and Hill, using her position as interim leader of the intelligence agency, accesses restricted technology in an attempt to undo the effects of the reality warping nanobots. Though it takes some time to get Drew to trust them, her intel on the inner workings of Viper’s cell gives the Secret Avengers the edge they need to infiltrate and dismantle HYDRA’s operations outside of Wundagore. Without causing $160 billion worth of damage.

Important things to take away from this: 
No one has managed to buy the Daily Prophet and fire Rita Skeeter (why? it’s well worth the money).
Harry is still living an active and adventurous life years after Voldemort’s defeat (I knew he was an adrenaline junkie).
Ron is going bald.
Harry and Krum have kept in touch over the years and are, presumably, still good friends.
The wizarding public knows about the Horcruxes and that the trio destroyed them.
Hermione is a rising star in the Ministry of Magic (like that’s a surprise).
Luna is as eccentric as always, and has made peace with her dad.
