Three things happen when they are in the lab. You fall in love with science, they sexually harass you, and when you criticize them, they cry! (And issue rape and death threats.)
I don't want to stand in the way of men. I'm a feminist - keep sexist asshats 'single' labs.
Separate but equal labs with no funding or prestigious awards for the sexist asshats, and real labs for the rest of humanity is the way to go!
These are light-hearted, ironic comments. I cannot help it if my audience interprets them as deadly serious.
I do mean the part about having trouble with boys. It's true I have fallen in love with science and that boys in the lab have sexually harassed me. It's very disruptive to science, because it's terribly important in the lab that people are on a level playing field, and I've found that these emotional entanglements have made life difficult. Not to say dangerous, at times.
I'm really sorry that I caused any offense, that's awful. I just meant to be honest, actually.
h/t @virginiahughes for alerting me to this latest outbreak of Nobelinania. Look out Jim Watson, you've got competition!
