If you thought that the constant embrace of earths gravity would be enough to contain feminist whining about sexism, you thought wrong. A new twitter hashtag #AstroSH meaning “Astronomy sexual harassment” is making the rounds in the twitterverse and it amounts to what you would expect, women whose bitching and entitlement has reached such inflated proportions that their smug cloud of collective feigned outraged threatens to escape earths velocity. An article titled “Women in space science reveal troubling stories of harassment using this hashtag” gives the details:
Scientists and students are sharing their stories of harassment in the space sciences using the hashtag #AstroSH on social media, after two prominent cases of sexual harassment in astronomy were brought to light this week.
These cases follow another high-profile harassment case in October involving a prominent astronomer who had been mentioned as a contender for the Nobel Prize in Physics.
On Tuesday, Rep Jackie Speier, a California Democrat, spoke on the House floor about a sexual harassment investigation from 2004 that found then-University of Arizona astronomy professor Tim Slater violated the school’s sexual harassment policy. Mashable published aninvestigation into the Slater case that day as well.
Science also revealed on Tuesday that astrophysics professor Christian Ott had violated the California Institute of Technology’s harassment policy, leading the university to ban him from campus without pay for one year, and Buzzfeed posted a lengthy piece looking at the Ott case on Tuesday night.
Those very public sexual harassment revelations inspired some to speak out about their own experiences.
Jessica Kirkpatrick, who posted her own stories on the hashtag, told Mashable about her motivations for speaking out on Twitter. “I wanted to make the #astroSH hashtag about more than just these three high-profile cases going on in the media right now,” she said.
“I wanted to show that this is a pervasive problem that has effected (sic) more women than not. I’m not ashamed or embarrassed about the fact that I’ve experienced harassment, and if my past experiences can help others feel less alone, or educate people about the extent of the problem, then I see that as a very good reason to share them,” she said.
“Finally, I wanted to let the latest women who came forward know that they weren’t alone.”
And just like that gentleman a new front in the war for the eternal victimhood status of the female sex was created, women now face the horrors of “astronomy sexual harassment”, predictably the hivemind of feminist victim culture and the women that perpetuate it took to sharing their tales of oppression, here are some of the good ones:
I call bullshit, Surely if this woman was so concerned about “astronomy sexual harassment” she would have saved gchat logs of her professor discussing his sex life with her, especially if this information was offered up without her approval… produce these chat logs. Male professors are likely full aware of the anti male climate on college campuses, why would a likely tenured professor put his job on the line simply to discuss his sex life with one of his students?
My best guess is that this was a reciprocal conversation in which the student showed interest in the topic first, and until I see chat logs proving what this student is claiming I will assume the professor to be innocent of her accusations. It wouldn’t be the first time, after all, that young women on college campuses made up stories about sexual harassment/assault to garner sympathy or attention (here’s looking at you mattress girl). Theres a bunch more where that came from but I will leave you to peruse them at your leisure, the purpose of this post is simply to document how the process of ginning up hysteria surrounding feminists and sexual harassment begins, takes on a life of it’s own and culminates, almost universally, into more hostility toward men in our society.
Not surprisingly, Nasa has learned nothing from the shirtgate debacle and has put out this simpering tweet to placate the harpies…
