“We tell our women “get into science, get into math, get into the pipeline.” Who wants to be in a pipeline full of acid?”
Alicia Menendez - The View
I’m at the car dealership, waiting for my service recall to be completed, and this statement caught the attention of every woman in the room. Unsurprisingly, they all nodded in assent while the few men in the room looked uncomfortable.
The point is valid: even if access to STEM and other male dominated fields is made available, we need to do something about the culture in the field. Access to a pipeline full of acid, while it is still access, serves to maintain inequality.
so my sister works in STEM & if you talked to her for like 5 minutes she can tell you how true this is. it’s fucking poisonous
fucking truer than anything. being a woman in a science field is toxic as hell.
do you ever get your period and just think about your recent behavior like wow that explains a lot
