"I’ve found that we can’t live without talking."
"I’d like to live without talking."
"Yes, it would be nice, wouldn’t it? Like loving one another more. But it isn’t possible."
"But why? Words should express just what one wants to say. Do they betray us?"
"But we betray them, too. One should be able to express oneself. It has been done in writing. Think: someone like Plato can still be understood—he can. Yet he wrote in Greek 2,500 years ago. No one really knows the language, at least, not exactly. Yet something gets through, so we should be able to express ourselves. And we must."
"Why must we understand each other?"
"We must think, and for thoughts, we need words. There’s no other way to think. To communicate, one must talk. That is our life."
everyone im interested in is too hot for me…
One would assume that scientists, who are trained to think objectively, are completely immune to gender discrimination. However, a recent Yale study by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues suggests otherwise.
The researchers created a fictional student and sent out the student’s application to science professors at top, research-intensive universities in the United States. The professors were asked to evaluate how competent this student was, how likely they would be to hire the student, how much they would pay this student, and how willing they would be to mentor the student. All of the applications sent out were identical, except for the fact that half were for a male applicant, John, and half were for a female applicant, Jennifer. Results showed that, with statistical significance, both male and female faculty at these institutions were biased towards male students over female students.
Data from the study shows that on average, science faculty was willing to pay the male applicant about $4,000 more per year.

"We don’t need feminism"
"Maybe he just worked harder"
