More PC bullsh*t

Get ready...................forget about the cost of living crisis, the war in Ukraine or climate change



enough worms aren't being named after women

Quote:
Parasitic worms have been sucked into the gender bias row after a report claimed the naming of the creatures was sexist.

Around 2,900 species were discovered during 2000-2020. However, of the 596 species named after eminent scientists, only 111, or 19%, recognised women, according to the experts from New Zealand's University of Otago.

And of 71 scientists honoured in the Latin names of two or more species, only eight were women.

Eight scientists who had lent their names to six or more species were men.

"We found a consistent gender bias among species named after eminent scientists, with male scientists being immortalised disproportionately more frequently than female scientists," said the study, published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

Re: More PC bullsh*t

If anything, women are being over-represented compared to their overall contribution to science and technology over the centuries.

Re: More PC bullsh*t

Not massively sure I want a parasitic worm named after me anyway isn't the obvious solution that more eminent scientists were men in the old days? I actually think touching 20% isn't that bad, wonder how many are black

Re: More PC bullsh*t

Name a parasitic worm after a woman and wait for the libtards and woke crowd to lay into that as being "sexist".

Re: More PC bullsh*t

Which male politicians justify the term "parasitic worm"?

EDIT: ... and what female name would assign to each/any?

Re: More PC bullsh*t

I though those worms were hermaphrodites so male and female at the same time.

Re: More PC bullsh*t

If you say a man is balb it is sexual harassment

Quote:
Calling someone bald at work is sexual harassment, an employment tribunal has ruled. Commenting on a man's baldness in the workplace is equivalent to remarking on the size of a woman's breasts, a panel of three employment judges rule.
