i work at a gym largely frequented by older women, and today as one of them left after her workout she accidentally pulled the entire door handle off and just slowly looked at her bicep in horror as if she was terrified of her new strength. it was beautiful.

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. source

"The gender gap doesn’t exist" 
"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.

You don’t really understand Star Trek until you’ve seen Galaxy Quest.

Galaxy Quest is the best of all the Star Trek movies.

I’m actually concerned for boys who complain about how different girls look without makeup. Like did you think eyeshadow permanently alters a girls eyelid? Are you frightened when people change clothes

Babies have no concept of object permanence

That’s one of the sickest burns I’ve ever read.

The holocaust was 50 years ago and the Jews never bitch about it but slavery was 200 years ago and black people still use it as an excuse for their decline and criminality. Weird it's almost like they'd rather blame other people than take responsibility for themselves.

May 8, 1945, when the war in Europe officially ended, which you know would make that 69 years ago, so you’re wrong about when the holocaust was, for starters, and it’s still taught in public schools, people who were in it still talk about it and it’s generally treated in western society as a travesty, and used as the worst possible case of something that can happen, hitler is constantly brought up and used as the epitome of evil, things that happened during the holocaust are constantly brought up and used as examples of pique war crimes, etc. 

December 6, 1865 was when slavery was abolished in the united states, which would have been 149 years ago, which is… not close to 200, which would again make your dates wrong, unsurprisingly since you can’t seem to get dates right at all as I’m assuming you don’t like to research things before you make claims, however, American Apartheid, AKA The “Separate but Equal” doctrine was eventually overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Brown v. Board of Education in 1954, which would make that 60 years ago, which is 9 years closer to us than the holocaust. Which means, yes, lots of black americans are still alive today who lived through the american apartheid. 

I believe slavery in the world became entirely illegal in 2007, so that was 7 years ago, even you were likely around for that, human trafficking is an ongoing issue, more people are in slavery today than were in slavery in the 1860s, more people are in slavery in america today than were in slavery in the 1860s.

Redlining didn’t end until around the late 70s, but black communities still receive fewer loans than would make statistical reasonable sense today, so it’s still an ongoing problem affecting millions to this day, and the effects of redlining haven’t really been remedied. 

Public schools are funded based on property value, and due to redlining, black neighborhoods property values are lower than majority white neighborhoods, making their schools have less funding on average than majority white neighborhood schools.

I mean literally you can just fucking google all this and realize you’re wrong as hell and have no business spouting bullshit you can’t back up. I mean this shit is basic stuff you can fucking google, your dates are wrong, your time stamps are hella’ wrong, and I find it interesting that you place the holocaust nearer to our current time than in actuality, and you place slavery further from our current time than in actuality, gonna go ahead and correctly assume that’s just straight up racism going on.
