    As a professional internet, it’s my job to search the web for quality, intellectually stimulating content. Like this.

    The heavens parted, and delivered unto us a scion of hope, a glimmer of immortality. This song.

    Its been a few hours since I posted this and I’m pretty sure I’ve gone back to listen to it about twelve times now and each time it still makes me almost develop a hernia from laughing so much.

    i’ve never loved something the way i love this post

    Anonymous asked: 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.

    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:

    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:

    "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

    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—

    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.

    starrylane asked: Gosh, I feel like I'm going through the same thing as you and it definitely sucks. It feels awful and it makes me sad to see you're going through it too. But seeing your posts makes me realize I'm not alone in this which in a way kind of helps. I guess I just want to let you know you aren't alone in this either and I hope things start picking up for you.


    Answer:

    Thank you, I hope things start picking up for you too :)

    It really sucks when you’re trying to heal from a break up and you watch a movie and suddenly it has one of the sweetest love scenes you’ve ever seen and then you start sobbing in the theater
