A very short Sexism 101

This is Professor Ben Barres, a neuroscientist at the prestigious Stanford University.

According to a colleague, "His work is much better than his sister's."

Professor Barres, oddly, doesn't have a sister who is also a neuroscientist at the prestigious Stanford University. If he does, she hasn't been seen since he turned 40, when he started injecting the testosterone...

I just came across Professor Barre a week or so ago, and I've become a relatively instant fan of his work.

Mainly, I found his rebuttals to Bailey.

And it's beyond inane that anyone said that about his "sister." Gah.
