And all scientists should be female, apparently.
Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.

See what I mean?  All of us fall victim to "not thinking" enough don't we?

You fall victim to it orders of magnitude more than the average person.  In fact your thinking is broken in a very deep way but it's broken to an extent that you do not realise it.  Like a lobotomised fool.
Sure about that?
I am.
We seem to be getting a consensus on this point itt. :parrot:

"outdated views"

Lol
True story:
My MIL was a pediatrician. (Went to medical school during WWII, when many of the rightful male owners of those med school spots were overseas). When my wife was in grade school, and the teacher asked what her parents did, she told them her mom was a doctor. The teacher patiently explained that, no, she was a nurse; young Mrs. VoxRat just had it wrong.

So, yeah. Outdated.
And, no.  Not " lol ".
My grandmother was a literature professor. My mom's teacher did a similar when my mom told the female teacher. The teacher, upon hearing the full story said, "oh, a literature professor.  As if the qualifier made it acceptable. 

I wonder what these twits would say upon meeting Marie Curie, Ada Lovelace, Dian Fossey, Hypatia, Hedy Lamarr or any of the hundreds of other women scientists.
Oh, a girl professor."

In science, accuracy and precision and attention to detail are extremely important. Someday I hope all of you will suck less at science.
If you really believed that, then you'd be suggesting all science should be done by women, and men left to day dream with their "big picture" mindset.
An excellent point. Dave, the great scientist, has just admitted that he is designed by God to be a failure at science.

The cowardice of our little misogynist is breathtaking. 
Thank goodness there's brave strong scientists like Pingu, who can see and understand the big picture.
