The following post should be read in the voice of ‘Jakov’, from the timeless South Park episode, ‘Jakovasaurs‘.
THIS IS JUST SO TYPICAL.
TYPICAL WHITE ELITIST D00D DOMINATION OF THE SCIENCES.
EUREKA JUST RELEASED THEIR TOP 30 SCIENCE BLOGS, AND ONLY 20% OF THEM ARE AUTHORED BY WOOMYN.
BUT GET THIS.
THERE IS ONLY ONE BLOG ON THE LIST WHERE THERE IS ONE PRIMARY AUTHOR WHO IS A WOOMYN. ITS AN ART BLOG.
THE OTHER ‘20%’ ARE WOOMYN IN GROUPS. BECAUSE APPARENTLY SCIENCE IS LIKE GOING TO THE BATHROOM BY YOURSELF: ITS JUST TOO SCARY, SO WOOMYN HAVE TO DO IT IN GROUPS. OR ALTERNATIVELY, WE HAVE TO HAVE A BIG, STRONG MAN AS A CO-BLOGGER TO PROTECT US FROM EVIL SCARY STALKER SEXIST COMMENTORS.
SO NOT ONLY IS THIS LIST A REPRESENTATION OF HOW SEXIST THE SELECTION COMMITTEE WAS, BUT ALSO A REPRESENTATION OF HOW SCARY IT IS TO BE A WOOMYN SCIENCE BLOGGER!
Im sure this very serious post will be met with a chorus of support from The Usual Suspects. Oh wait, no it wont, cause The Colgate Twins are on the list (for their posts on kissing pussys, no doubt).
Also note, there were no virologists on the list.
Also note that this post is for lulz only. *HIGH-FIVE!* to my fellow SciBlings and thanks to the list makers for pointing me towards some neat blogs I didnt know existed 🙂
