Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s, sexism! Forget the spectacle of a spacecraft landing on a comet orbiting the sun 310,000,000 miles from Earth. Forget a billion taxed euros wasted on a pointless space expedition. What’s really important is the scantily clad women on the shirt of the guy who figured out how to do it. Or at least, that’s what I was astounded to be confronted with as the top story on Google News this morning.
Rosetta Project scientist Matt Taylor caused a bit of a firestorm with his choice of fashion during the European Space Agency’s live stream of Wednesday’s Philae landing. Taylor initially sported a shirt featuring women in lingerie, possibly not the wisest choice of attire given all of the discussion surrounding the challenges for women in the tech and science fields.

I don’t care what scientists wear. But a shirt featuring women in lingerie isn’t appropriate for a broadcast if you care about women in STEM

STEM is an acronym for “Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics”, and feminists are pretty sure the reason there aren’t more women in this field, is because guys like Matt Taylor are sexists and wear shirts like the one pictured above. Certainly it couldn’t be due to rampant feminist hysteria like this, right?
There’s no way women could possibly have any responsibility for their own choices in education or career, according to feminists. Everything has to be because of men. It is by putting responsibility for everything on men, that women will bring themselves out of this oppression they have suffered at our hands for so long.
Certainly it couldn’t have anything to do with the fact that the vast majority of the world’s geniuses are men. Feminists have no problem bragging that women on average have higher IQ’s than men, but they never like to take this little factoid into consideration. Male geniuses outnumber female geniuses 8-to-1. Male IQ varies far more than women’s. There are men who are dumb as rocks, and men who land spacecraft on comets orbiting the sun. Women are generally packed more towards the middle, and so on average, their IQ representation is higher.
The reason you don’t see women in highly technical fields nearly as often as you see men, is not because of sexism. It certainly isn’t because of Matt Taylor’s shirt. You can’t even blame this on education anymore, since more women attend college than men. The issue at hand is one of simple aptitude, and the choices people make as a result of that aptitude.
You gals remember choices, right? I seem to recall you caring about those things once upon a time.
If you think about it, this makes a lot of sense. A society needs leaders, and followers. In men, we see very high IQ’s, figuring things out and working out these complex ideas. They document them in easy to understand ways for those of lesser intelligence in society, and make technology available to all of us. We also see these low IQ’s which are more suited to say, mining the resources that this technology requires, and operating the machines the geniuses designed. Women, traditionally carrying the role of raising children and supporting the men who designed and operated the machinery, needed to be somewhere in the middle. They couldn’t well manage the many complex tasks their role in society required of them without being smarter than the worker drones, but there wasn’t any need for them to be super geniuses who could land spacecraft on comets hundreds of millions of miles away, either.
Unfortunately for men, these women of average intelligence do manage to outsmart and confuse so many of us on the lower end of the IQ spectrum. That’s how you end up with college age males chanting idiotic feminists slogans at demonstrations.
For those of us at the upper end of the IQ spectrum, we are sentenced to a lifetime of watching stupidity like this run rampant. We will watch in horror for all of eternity as idiots dominate the headlines with their hysteria, responsibility avoidance, and demands for State privilege disguised as “equality”. We’ll see brilliant men like Matt Taylor smeared as being the worst type of bigot, simply because he’s smarter than the people who accuse him.
