A thread of our own- misogyny

Can’t wait to hear his defense. No, that’s wrong. I really don’t want to hear anything from him or about him. Ever. Again.

More accurate: Physicists don’t like women.

Honestly I still recall both my TA offering to give me an easy a if I screwed him, being told I was “smart for a woman,” being told “there just aren’t many black people or women who are capable of this work… just look… I don’t see any do you?” This isn’t the sixties or something, I’m not that old. The list goes on. I wasn’t even a stem major. I got an art degree partially because intellectually complex sexism but lowkey open doors were more appealing despite the pink ghetto effect, since there’s always that “if anyone can make a living in the arts God bless that lucky fuck” reality of the situation. Hard to say women can’t make art when you’re looking at it.

Jokes on me I ended up working as a programmer where I found that even the business world didn’t approach the overt “no colored people no women allowed” mentality of the hard sciences in education. It’s just not… worth it. It’s not even that great of a career TBH… You can have an more enjoyable life and make a similar income as a hair stylist if you want to.

As soon as one realizes there is no motivation to “prove yourself” to a bunch of random assholes because they’re nothing special themselves, there’s literally no motivation to pursue this line of work. “Do you want to make less, work harder, and be hazed for your entire life? Nah? See? Only white men are capable of doing this job.” I swear half this society is just set up to keep white men from realizing how utterly average most of them really are.

@TornPaperNapkin: You’ve hit exactly upon why white men are so terrified of any societal movement toward equality.

Well hey, there’s that capital-A Art when like, Jackson Pollack basically pisses all over some giant canvas (while being promoted by the CIA), then there’s all that decorative art and feminist whining that women like to dabble in sometimes. Amirite?!

This book touches on that, as well as other cultural fields (including the funding of academics abroad):

The Cultural Cold War is the most interesting part of the Cold War…

Yep! That’s where I read about it too. Great reporting, sad it didn’t ultimately get much traction.
