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. source

"The gender gap doesn’t exist" 
"We don’t need feminism" 
"Maybe he just worked harder"
"*any MRA bullshit*"

I had to read this study for class. It is thorough as fuck.

These photos are of Stephan Flores, The Bunny Guy, demonstrating the Rabbit Heimlich (using his rabbit Star) ~
Star’s legs are straddling my arm. Both right legs are on one side of my arm and both left legs are on the other side. Notice how my fingers are spread around her one leg and on the other side my thumb is along the other side of her neck. My other hand is place firmly on her back to hold her very tightly, so that when I fling her downward, I am in control and can maintain a firm grip on her. Of course, you do not want to accidentally fling your bunny across the room, when you do this.

Keeping your arms stretched out as straight as you can, fling the bunny downward as hard as you can without losing control of your grip. Start up high, just above your head and bring the bunny down very quickly, so that force of the movement will help propel the blockage out from their throat from the centrifugal force. The straighter your arm is and the further out the rabbit is from your body, the more force is being applied, due to the laws of physics. You may have to repeat this maneuver several times until whatever is lodged in their throat is forced loose.
