Righteous Feminism versus brilliant Science

Well put Andrew , the thing that annoys me about so many feminists is their complete humorlessness, they see the world througgh the cloak of their claimed victim hood and do their very best to suck the joy out of so many aspoects of our lives with their utter bullshit. This is just one sad example and another is the “campaigns against Games like GTAV and “gendered” toys


Ayaan Hirsi Ali pings the handbag hyenas for pursuing “trivial bullshit”. 

I noticed the extraodinary wailing and subsequent humiliation of Dr Matt Taylor, project scientist of the European Space Agency who managed the remarkable feat of landing an exploratory spacecraft onto Comet 67P for wearing a colourful shirt at his press conference.

His sin was to wear a pop-art style shirt with pictures of “gun-totting women” dressed in what otherwise might have been classed as “sisterhood approved burlesque“. But no.

With the whiff of complaint by the sisterhood, the American Astronomical Society (AAS), The Astronomical Society of Australia (ASA), the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS), and the American Geophysical Union all caved in to the Barking Spiders and fell over backwards to apologise. The RAS even added, just in case we hadn’t got the message, that behaviour such as clothing choices “can discourage women from pursuing careers in science.”  Ouch.  Of course.

    No bright young man will pursue a career in astronomy or space exploration for a generation or more. Thanks to this public pillorying of an eminent scientist, the Chinese will land a man on Mars before the Americans do it.

    Serves them right.

  2. Iain Hall says:

    If the Chinese do land a man on Mars first it will be because they won’t bringing him home as it considers its people entirely disposable.

  3. Paul Murray says:

    True, but I can’t help feeling that if the americans did exactly the same thing you’d be using a different combination of words to describe it.
