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.

#please tag for sexual assault
I love my friend a lot, but she has got to stop shaming women for being sexual. This video is of a girl telling one of her friends she has “no respect” for herself. She also goes on to say women blame boys for disrespecting them too much. Then, she says she is spreading the nude pictures of her friend and encouraging other people to spread the nudes without her consent to shame her. 
I feel like my friend body shames other women because she is jealous of her boyfriend fooling around with other girls. I feel like he has hurt her somehow, and what has been ingrained in her tells her to lash out at other women.
I’m so so so disappointed, and I really hope she listens and doesn’t try to fight me. I really want her to become better, love herself, and other girls, because this shit is nowhere near okay.
I feel like you were the only people who would read/appreciate my rant, so here it is…

I can’t see how you could stay friends w/ someone who would do this…horrible.

THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT GUYS LISTEN UP

If you like dogs, have a dog, or happen to be a decent human being then please, please, PLEASE listen

Harlan are the UK’s last remaining breeders of beagles for use in experiments.

This company breeds beagles for the purpose of selling them to laboratories and universities and keep ‘donor beagles’

These dogs have their blood regularly drained and sold to laboratories and are subject to numerous experiments.

Some of these experiments include ‘toxicology experiments’ which entail the dogs wearing muzzles and being forced to inhale toxic substances such as cigarettes, bleach and oven cleaner.

If they aren’t killed during experiments, they’re eventually deemed useless and euthanised

A former employee reported to the Sunday Times that these poor beagles:

• are being punched and kicked by employees

• have profanities shaved into their fur and their faces daubed with felt tips

• are kept in dirty, cramped pens

These beagles are born to endure such a high level of pain and suffering that they self harm, kill themselves or each other

These beagles are being used in experiments because they are vulnerable and controllable and can’t make it stop.

If you’re a decent human being, please don’t just ignore this and bury your head in the sand because THIS IS HAPPENING TO PUPPIES RIGHT NOW and it takes less than 2 minutes of your time to bring them closer to seeing sunshine, breathing fresh air, going on walks and being loved and cuddled by someone who wants to take care of them

Please stop these poor dogs from suffering. They don’t have a voice to stop their pain and get help, but you do.

Please, be their voice, and sign here: PETITION
