"But for photos of women, greater femininity corresponded to being judged as less likely to be a scientist and more likely to be an early childhood educator, a field dominated by women. "
If it seems women in STEM fields aren't taken seriously, it's because they may not be. A new study by CU-Boulder researcher Sarah Banchefsky, a postdoctoral researcher in social psychology, finds that women scientists who have “feminine” traits such as longer hair and finer facial features are generally assumed to be non-scientists.

This is definitely a case of "Pics or GTFO".  Also, if the Koss study taught me anything, it's "don't trust any social experiment that you can't read the full methodology including footnotes".

"But are women the ones who need to change? If I’m saying something intelligent and all a listener can hear is the way I’m saying it, whose problem is that?"

Not at all.  You know what is a troll?

"With men, we listen for what they're saying, their point, their assertions."

BULL

SHIT!!!

People have been focusing on how people talk for centuries and it is NOT a gender thing.  You could be the most brilliant White Heterosexual CIS Male Astrophysicist in the world giving a speech on a discovery that will change the very way we understand the universe.  But, if you slip a "y'all" into your speech, it's over.  People will focus in on the hayseed giving a speech about .... something....instead of the actual speech.  Ask George W. Bush what an awkward pronunciation of the word "Nuclear" does for your reputation.

This is the way it has been for centuries.  You want to ascend the corporate ladder?  Here are the vocal patterns that you use.  You want to give a speech on astrophysics?  Here are the vocal patterns you use.  Men have understood that and learned to adapt.  Feminists, on the other hand, write whiny articles about how the patriarchy is against them.  This may come as a surprise but Toastmasters and other speech coaches didn't just suddenly spring up when women started entering the workforce nor do they only offer services to help women speak like men.

As such, I reiterate:  If your speech patterns are hindering people from focusing in on what you're saying, it is not the world's fault or even the patriarchy's fault.  It's your fault.

But you want to see a troll:  Okay, here it is.

I award this article a demotivator.

And this is a problem in science.  We NEED to know if something can't be replicated!
Anyone who has talked to me in the last year would have heard me complain about my 8-times-failure-to-replicate which nobody wants to publish. The preprint, raw data and analysis scripts are available here, so anyone can judg...

Women coders do better than men in a gender-blind study that examines GitHub requests.

So you're saying that the efforts of two decades of a misandrist public education system that is trying to push girls into STEM jobs and boys into dropping out are starting to bear fruit.

Who could have seen that happening?

Oh noes! Apparently it's okay to have a fan film so long as the quality isn't too good.
'Axanar' aims to be a professional-quality prequel and has raised more than $1 million.

Kudos to GoDaddy for providing this information. In all, women are doing well, but the gaps in tech and management, while small, still need to be considered.

Great food, try the monkey bread at brunch. Could use bottomless mimosas and wifi though.

This is a fairly standard dog park - separate sections for small and large dogs, grass, a few benches. But unlike country parks, there is running water so your dogs can always have something to drink. And in the warm months they put out kiddie pools for the dogs to play in. There tend to be less dog fights here than at Cabin John too.

I don't go out to movies very often because I don't enjoy the experience. Now I need to rethink that. iPic theaters are the closest thinback.g to your own living room you'll find in a movie theater. Recliners, pillows, a blanket in case you get cold... A decent menu of food and drinks that will be delivered directly to your seat, Oh, and only two seats in a grouping (for the more expensive seats), and 10 seats to a row. Lovely time. I will be

Great food, the courtyard is lovely for reading outside. Service, however, was spotty and slow.

I have been going to Muddy Branch for several years as they are not only my vet, but offer their services at cost to the rescue group I volunteer with. All three vets are caring people who are willing to take the time to make sure your pet is doing their best. The staff are all friendly and helpful - it's obvious they love animals. This time when I visited, my dog too exception to having his teeth examined and snapped at the vet. She went out of her way to make sure there was no pain causing his reaction and then spent some time with me reassuring me that nothing was wrong and suggesting how to prevent this in the future. When I had to put my last dog to sleep I lost count of how many people there hugged me and told me they were sorry. This kind of caring means a lot.

Before I started using Aveda Bethesda I tried 4 other Hair Salons. And none of them could consistently get my cut and color right. One month it's be perfect, the next month I'd be blonde, the month after that it would go frizzy... I went to Aveda Bethesda because I like the Aveda products. On first impression it seems small and cramped, with things like customer waiting aread and hair washing stations squished in wherever there's a little room. The pace is rather frenetic, unlike other Aveda salons I have visited, But Lan is amazing. My hair color looks better and more natural than my actual color and my hair looks good no matter how much (or little) work I put into it. And it looks good EVERY TIME. And that makes this salon the best I've found in the DMV.
