“We often talk about the “leaky pipeline of STEM” as a way to talk about how women and people of color drop out of STEM careers at alarmingly high rates, but it is time to abandon that language. We’re not talking about a passive system here, where people just happen to drip out of the pipeline. No, we’re talking about a system that actively creates pressure. If you take a large pipe, attach it to a smaller pipe and then a smaller one, while still pushing the same amount of water through, what’s going to happen? Either your pipe is going to spring pressure-driven leaks or you’re going to have to have holes drilled to relieve it. We’re not talking about a leaky pipeline of STEM, we’re talking about a gorram sprinkler system, actively pushing out people who were set up to fail from the beginning by the very system itself.

There are very real problems in the sciences. But right now the field is caught in an auto-catalytic cycle, where people point out ways in which we’re failing at outreach, the people in positions of power dig in their heels with cries of “but *we* weren’t offended!”, the same people then wring their hands and wonder why there isn’t more diversity in science… and continue to ignore us when answers to that question are given. And if we keep making excuses for the smaller things that hurt various groups, it’s never goin to change.

“We were forced to write for 70% boys and 30% girls because we found that boys will only read “boys stuff” while girls will read anything and don’t discriminate.

oh my god have you ever stumbled upon a facebook page 'women against feminism'? i cannot believe this 'i dont need feminism because i think men's issues need more attention; the wage gap is a result of choice not sexism" or better yet "because i love my louboutins" what the fuck i dont know whether to laugh or cry

Have yourself a good little laugh-cry, dust yourself off, and remember that you probably thought like those girls at one point in your life. I know I did!
