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.
"The gender gap doesn’t exist"
"We don’t need feminism"
"Maybe he just worked harder"
"*any MRA bullshit*"
not only are salaries affected, but female grad students/professors in the sciences are less likely to be given lecture teaching assignments and more likely to be given lab teaching assignments. regardless of their own gender, those doing the hiring regarded male applicants/students as more able to command respect from their audience.
the lab assignments are less prestigious, but they also take up 3-4x the amount of time to run - leaving the female academics much less time to focus on their own research and getting published, which will lead to slower advancement through the ranks to full professorship.
The other day my sister’s boyfriend said the words ‘Hawkeye is clearly the most useless member of the avengers’ and let me tell you, I turned to him with such a look of pure fury on my face that he nearly pissed himself.
this girl that sits with me was complaining..about another girl. because she likes the same band as her “but doesn’t dress like it” so obviously she doesn’t really listen to them
how do you DRESS like the music you listen to???

But mainly the Seven thing. That was really…….ugh, go to the corner and think about your transgressions.
