Because, hash-tagging is cool… what’s not cool is Nobel Laureate Tim Hunt’s comments that he thinks research labs should be single sex only. Women ‘fall in love’, are too ‘distractingly sexy’, or ‘cry when criticized’. Pity he said something so inane that he had to quit his high profile position at University College London. Just goes to show you that just because someone is brilliant does not mean the person is enlightened. Anyway, this links to a bunch of twitter pictures women have posted with the above hashtags and some are brilliant. Woman in cleanroom talking about how hot a hairnet looks. LOL!
