Except that metaphor isn’t really apt. 

It would be like if your bully wears a white T-shirt. 

Day in and day out, White T-Shirt.  So one day you crack and punch out your bully. Good for you. 

You then proceed to run around and punch everyone wearing a white T-Shirt.   

Tumblr Kitties seem to think their post are a lazer targeted missile, only hurting the people they intend to. 

It’s not. It’s a flamethrower. 

Tumblr Kitties, just put down the flamethrower. 

This explains the point beautifully. Thanks, cisfist, for a great analogy and a great last sentence.

One would assume that scientists, who are trained to think objectively, are completely immune to gender discrimination. However, a recent Yale study by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues suggests otherwise.

The researchers created a fictional student and sent out the student’s application to science professors at top, research-intensive universities in the United States. The professors were asked to evaluate how competent this student was, how likely they would be to hire the student, how much they would pay this student, and how willing they would be to mentor the student. All of the applications sent out were identical, except for the fact that half were for a male applicant, John, and half were for a female applicant, Jennifer. Results showed that, with statistical significance, both male and female faculty at these institutions were biased towards male students over female students.

Data from the study shows that on average, science faculty was willing to pay the male applicant about $4,000 more per year.

"We don’t need feminism" 

"Maybe he just worked harder"

"*any MRA bullshit*"

I had to read this study for class. It is thorough as fuck.

The thing is when you’re bisexual, you’re not really surprised when a straight person is biphobic. Sure it sucks and you’re like “well fuck you too dude” to whoever the prick is; but it’s not so astonishing.

Biphobic gay people on the other hand, actually hurt like a motherfucker. Like bro you’re supposed to be on my side??? Like even “my people” can’t accept me?? That hurts so much more than some random dude who expects a threesome.
