Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)
OH WAIT LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE.
Cecilia Payne’s mother refused to spend money on her college education, so she won a scholarship to Cambridge.
Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said fuck that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.
Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”
Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne—after telling her not to publish).
Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.
Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard, and is often credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women in the Harvard science department and in astronomy, as well as inspiring entire generations of women to take up science.
Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.
a restaurant in my hometown got a review that said the servers should “show some skin” so the owner added a potato skin special to the menu and all the proceeds from the special go to the west virginia foundation for rape information services (x)
That’s exactly the appropriate response.
Anonymous said: "When you dress like that and go out drinking and stay til late and walk home alone or accept drinks from a strangers you are asking for it." Okay. Maybe a little. But what are your thoughts on the men who do "it"?
There are degrees to rape. There are those that crack open a person’s skull and fuck them while they bleed out and there are those that see a horny drunk person and just go for it.
I feel sorry for those that commit those really gory rapes. They get thrown in prison where there mental issues only fester and when they do get out they will do it again but more carefully since they have learned from their mistakes. Those types of rapists belong in asylums, getting treatment for their aggressive behavior.
As for those fuckwits that misinterpret the signals or just go for it because the victim is drunk or drugged, those entitled brats that feel a need to claim someone, a good prison shower rape should teach them better. They are the result of poor education and it’s a fixable habit.
You’re proposing corrective rape?
ha ha hahahaa feminists amirite guys
