Now students lecture their professors:

Quote:
Young female BAME researchers are 'reverse mentoring' older white male academics to make them 'understand diversity better'

Scheme encourages senior academic staff to help women and ethnic minorities

Follows incidents where professors have been accused of 'offensive' views

Campaigners say 'pale, male and stale' professors have an unconscious bias

Unconscious bias. I'm so ashamed of myself...

Serves them right. They are thought criminals.

Also, the more wise and educated you are, the more instruction and behavioral shaping you need from the naive and ignorant. Everybody knows that (for example, the Maoist and Khmer Rouge cultural revolutionaries).

All I know is: A society without the ability to force the government to respect their freedoms (through force) is at the mercy of said government.

I'm also really drunk.

@notageek: I managed to edit your post, so it isn't as you originally posted. I sent a PM. Let me know if you want me to update it with whatever was originally there.

Who needs help, and from whom?

I don't believe the message sent means what they think it means.

Handelsman’s group
asked 127 professors of biology, chemistry
and physics at 6 US universities to evaluate the
CVs of two fictitious college students for a job
as a laboratory manager. The professors said
they would offer the student named Jennifer
US$3,730 less per year than the one named
John, even though the CVs were identical. The
scientists also reported a greater willingness to
mentor John than Jennifer.


Quote:
Women face even more daunting odds in
Spain. Men are 2.5 times more likely to rise
to the rank of full professor than female colleagues
with comparable age, experience and
publication records8.

Disparities can also be found in grant funding
in some countries. In one frequently cited
study9
, Christine Wennerås and Agnes Wold at
the University of Gothenburg in Sweden found
in 1997 that female applicants for postdoctoral
fellowships had to score 2.5 times higher on an
index of publication impact to be judged the
same as men.

12% of scienists who agreed to mentor a young female employee who later ruined their career with a sexual harassment or sexual discrimination complaint. 61% of other scientists have eventually learned not to volunteer to be some cunt's stepping-stone.
