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.

They made birth control for men. However it never got past the clinical testing stage because its side effects were things like “moodiness, extreme cramping, hunger, increased sexual drive” and were considered INHUMANE.

what the fuck do they think women go through every goddamn month seriously

I’M SORRY MEN CAN’T HANDLE MENSTRATION

men are pussies

Men are not pussies because they can’t handle having one

men are penises

the post was amazing and the comments made it better.

Oh, it’s even worse than that.
Hormonal birth control for men has been a solved problem since the 1970s, and the current iterations of the technology are actually substantially superior to equivalent treatments for women, demonstrating higher effectiveness, less dangerous side effects, and lower prevalence of side effects in virtually all modern trials. At this point, some forty years on, such treatments continue to be refused certification on the ostensible basis of concerns over the purely hypothetical effects of long-term use.
Meanwhile, a hormonal birth control treatment for women whose known and documented side effects include “sudden death” can go from the laboratory to the pharmacy shelf in under five years.
Really shows you where our priorities lie, doesn’t it?

tell me I don’t need feminism

tell me I don’t need feminism when a white women gets payed 77 cents to every dollar a man makes and women of color get payed even less

tell me I don’t need feminism when only 18% of prosecuted rapes end with conviction

tell me I don’t need feminism when my brother can walk around in just his underwear but I cannot walk around in shorts and a t-shirt because I will be sexualized and told to cover up

tell me I don’t need feminism when women are abused sexually, abused mentally, and abused physically and told it is their fault that it happened

tell me I don’t need feminism when girls get called ‘sluts’ or ‘whores’ when they have sex but boys get a high five

tell me I don’t need feminism when a man feels entitled to a woman’s body when she is her own person

tell me I don’t need feminism when you’re told at a young age ‘boys will be boys’ and to ignore them instead of teaching boys not to do that

tell me I don’t need feminism when men hear of this movement and turn it into a movement about them and how a feminist hates all men

tell me I don’t need feminism when you type in Google ‘feminist are’ and you get ‘stupid’ and ‘retarded’ as and end result because we realize what is wrong

tell me I don’t need feminism because you’re scared of the strength of women

tell me I don’t need feminism
