Author John Scalzi was on a roll this morning (currently 7:14 AM, 26 Sept. 2014) with a tweet he found from some guy sending out an “ultimatum” to women to “make a choice” between feminism and, well, men like him.

Love this man!

If boys and girls both love dinosaurs as children, why are there so many fewer women growing up and studying their evolutionary history?

The news: A new Verizon ad touches on one of the reasons behind that disparity. The commercial, released this week, reveals the subtle ways people — parents included — discourage young women from pursuing science careers.

A L B on “Fake Geek Girls”

heroicgirls:
