Scientists are people too and, sadly, the sciences are often still a hotbed of misogyny and, um, stupid men who can’t shut up.

Dr. Danielle Lee is a science blogger for Scientific American which is basically an American institution. She’s good enough that “Biology Online,” which I’d never heard of (that means nothing, there’s tons of things I haven’t heard of), wanted to offer her a ‘guest blogger’ opportunity. Cool beans, right?

Yeah, not the best sales pitch I’ve ever heard either. Dr. Lee was having none of it and so she crafted this wonderful reply in all it’s South Memphis accented beauty.
