[Discussion] Feminism and social justice, plus FAQ!

This thread is for discussing feminist issues--from the narrow meaning (a movement for social justice in terms of gender equality) to the broader meaning (a movement for social justice, period), and from the scope of issues in gaming and geek culture to kyriarchy in general.

Basic questions are allowed here for now, we will split out a Q&A thread should it become necessary.

What does a scientist look like? Children are drawing women more than ever before

When asked to draw a scientist, school-age kids in the United States are increasingly sketching women. That’s the main conclusion of a new study that compiled information about 20,860 pictures drawn by students age 5 to 18 over 5 decades.

*GASP* It's almost like abstinence only sex ed... DOESN'T WORK... Ugh, this is definitely one of the things that drives me right up the wall, as a public health MD. It's infuriating.

And it's not as if this should even be news to anyone; hasn't the data on this been pretty rock-solid since the turn of the century? Or even longer?

So frustrating.

So frustrating. :(

It was never about the data.

I like these rules a lot better than the ones we usually have inflicted upon us.

Thanks Bekki, my wife loved this.

I’m gonna have to disagree with a few of them.
#4 shouldn’t be limited to horror movie. Should be ANY movie.
#9 I don’t see why I should be limited in choice of accessory after 30. If I’ve collected those ears, I darn well will continue wearing them!
Likewise, #16, I agree about the hyenas, but my fur accessory felines will be worn (when they’re willing).

Follow up article on exactly how you determine if the amulets are cursed or just gaudy would be nice.

I, for one, welcome our new waspsuit overlords (overladies?).
