Famous Scientist’s Life Destroyed After Explaining His “Trouble With Girls”


By on Sunday, June 14, 2015

A Nobel laureate has been forced to resign after evoking public outrage for remarks he made about women in science.
Sir Tim Hunt, a Royal Society fellow, resigned from his position as honorary professor at the University College London after making remarks about concerning the “trouble with girls” in science.
“Let me tell you about my trouble with girls.
Three things happen when they are in the lab: you fall in love with them, they fall in love with you, and when you criticize them they cry,” Sir Tim reportedly told a conference audience in South Korea.

To be certain, Sir Tim Hunt’s words were unprofessional and indefensible. They were off color, and Sir Tim acknowledged as much in his seemingly genuine apology:
“I did mean the part about having trouble with girls,” he said.
“I have fallen in love with people in the lab and people in the lab have fallen in love with me and it’s very disruptive to the science because it’s terribly important that in a lab people are on a level playing field.
“I found that these emotional entanglements made life very difficult.
“I’m really, really sorry I caused any offence, that’s awful. I certainly didn’t mean that. I just meant to be honest, actually.”
It would appear that the good Sir has a case of a jilted heart and a loose tongue. But these are unforgivable sins to the political correctness warriors. Online campaigns of vitriol and character assassination sought to permanently damage his career and his image.

And who is Sir Timothy Hunt? A British biochemist, he won the Noble prize in physiology or medicine for his breakthrough work on how cells divide. In 2006, he was knighted. The man is a genius and should be regarded as a hero to the nation—at least that’s how I assumed being knighted worked.
Does ability and achievement count for nothing when you say something off color? If yes, then the implications of such a standard are frightening to consider.
There are obviously many skilled, valuable women working in the sciences. But reacting with such ferocity at such benign remarks does not help their cause. Likewise, professionally assassinating a brilliant man who has made important contributions to science because of a few poorly chosen remarks does not prove that they can indeed set aside emotion in favor of professionalism.
What’s most alarming here isn’t this incident specifically, but the general trend of political correctness dominating every aspect of life on earth. These are the same people who made Dr. Matt Taylor of the Rosetta mission cry on television because he wore a shirt with illustrations of women on it. The man landed a probe on a comet, he should have been a hero! Instead he was brought to tears in front of the world over a shit.
The political correctness warriors are out to make sure no one offends anyone—an impossible task. Social values and popular opinions about them change over time. This is an accepted truth. We even have cliché jokes about how elderly people are more prone to antiquated social views regarding religion, race, or sexuality. But here’s a serious question, at what point is it unreasonable to expect an elderly person to adopt new social views?

Sir Tim, for example, is 72 years old. A lot has changed in the way society views women in 72 years. Should the fact that his views are not in time with the most recent trends really surprise anyone? Is ostracizing him for those views not a form of ageism? It would be one thing if colleagues had attested that he treated women poorly or disparaged their work. But the man has been highly regarded throughout his distinguished career.
Political correctness has a chilling effect. People who fear they may accidentally say the wrong thing become afraid to speak at all. And who would blame them when outraged mobs can be stirred up and aimed at people with just a few clicks of a mouse?

  1. This is an clasical to be full spectrum exploited, MSM builded case of an thypon in a glass of water.
    And of course, the ziotrud press is screaming for anything to direct the antentions of the creatures with an attention span of an brass fart at anything, expect the truth.
    Even S. Khan was released, and wounder why, was there anything in the first place, after the voultures have had their ball for some days in the MSM, where it was dragger thrue an amazing pile of manure.
    And it all ended with a whoooofff.



    Its simply riddicilous.

    peace

    Yes it is age discrimination and attempt at thought control. Its true that after a certain age you become a combination of resilient to the efforts, if you are even aware. So terms like cisgender seem absolutely ridiculous as does trying to get me to stop saying illegal alien when that remains the most concise and least confusing for newcomers to the concept/conversation. Manspreading bothers me none unless I need that seat and he is too rude to share. Mansplaining is offensive but I'm a big girl and can speak up regardless of whether I know the term.

  3. I pity our society for the cess pool it has become. His words were unprofessional and indefensible... Maybe a bit unprofessional but, come on, indefensible? It's absolutely impossible to open your mouth and not 'insult' someone now a days. Heaven forbid if it happens to be a woman or a minority. I can't wait till these people's skin becomes so damn thin it just falls off their bodies.

    To
    be certain, Sir Tim Hunt’s words were unprofessional and indefensible.
    They were off color, and Sir Tim acknowledged as much in his seemingly

  4. I had to actually look up the definition for cisgender.

    Cisgender or cissexual (often
    abbreviated to simply cis) describes related types of gender identity
    perceptions, where individuals' experiences of their own gender agree
    with the sex they were assigned at birth.

    This is going way too far... this just a made up word for normal. Agreeing with the sex they were 'assigned' at birth, WTF! If this crap is allowed to continue I can't see how the hell the human race is going to survive. And if it does what kind of creatures is it going to consist of.

  6. What about those of us who are offended by the accusations of the easily offended regardless of whether or not we are the targets ?
    ( seriously, watching people bitch at someone else, over some detail, whilst missing the point of whatever they were trying to do, or say, pisses me off in a really big way...)

    Our societies and species are devolving into a cesspool of non-thinking over-reactive neurotic sycophants and sociopaths that count on the masses being uneducated, illiterate and lacking in sufficient attention and ability to think to see through the utter bullshit.
    We now create mostly fake scientific reports, fake research results and change the language to assuage the sensitivities of wimps, sexual deviants, liberal retro-evolved bipeds and any other sissified entity that is along for the ride.
    I say flush it now and start over. If you take offense at someone's words it because you choose to be offended, take responsibility for yourself for the first time in your damn useless life.

  10. He really didn't say anything wrong at all. People fall in love and cry all the time. In this modern psychopathic society, I guess men expressing their feelings about women and discussing emotions is unprofessional and indefensible. Perhaps what he said is right and it's this hopeless modern psychopathic society that prefers us to be like robots that is unprofessional and indefensible. I think it's time that we express our emotions, realize that attraction between the sexes is natural, and leave the transhumanism behind.

  11. Seriously... Healthy babies are not "assigned" a sex "at birth", they are BORN a MALE or a FEMALE. Even their definition reeks of degeneracy.

  13. Well, they used to burn heretics alive, so maybe Tim Hunt got lucky. He is a coward, in my opinion, for publicly apologizing even though he said nothing wrong. If you are accused of Political Incorrectness, there is only one answer that is both honorable and socially acceptable- JE NE REGETTE RIEN!

  18. So, you take a class with Sir Tim and you happen to be female. You walk in the door to the lab and he looks at you and thinks, "Uh oh! Trouble!" Is this the level playing field that he is advocating? Why can't he keep his lust to himself and expect women to do likewise? After all, there are already rules against sleeping with your students. Einstein ordered his wife not to speak to him. Just because you're a genius doesn't meant you're not a jerk. And why is it so awful to expect men not to be jerks?

    Is it so awful to expect all women to not be reactionary cunts? Just throwing your gross generalization back at you. And Tim didn't say "get back to the kitchen," but that's okay...be reactionary. He MUST be a jerk, he's a man. So, what have you done for the world? Where's your nobel prize? Land anything on a comet? No, of course not, modern feminism is too busy being 'outraged' and staring at their crotches and doing their god damndest to bring down all men in all positions.


    As for your Einstein bullshit, maybe you missed the part where his first marriage was utterly falling apart. They didn't like each other. And I see you don't mention his second marriage that lasted until the day he died. Einstein was one of the greatest thinkers and humanitarians of the 20th century, but you just dismiss him as being a "jerk." Modern Feminism wants you to just look at his failed first marriage, because that's the only straw you can grab at to bring this man down. Forget his revolutionizing of modern physics; ignore the fact that he was a pacifist who worked for peace; oooh he and his first wife didn't get along so he must be a JERK. I'm surprised you at least didn't trot out that tired horse shit about him having "stolen" Special Relativity from his first wife too.



    So got any barbs for Ghandi? Maybe you can find a reason to trash the Dalai Lama next. As we all know, women are never "jerks," only men. Especially accomplished, great men.

  37. THe jewish marxists had a lot of help from the psychotic WASP christians. Just remember that when you want to lay it all on one group of people. THe white man pioneered industrial age colonialism, and the world sucks because of it. Sorry if he can;t deal with the facts of history, but there they are, and the money the caucasian colonialist made and stole from the world is still in his hands. That other countries of the world don't bow down is testament to the well understood legacy of the caucasian colonialistm and the Chinese are well underway to returning the favor.

  38. You cannot expect scientists to be politically correct. They spend their lives making observations and reporting the facts as they find them. Telling people what they like to hear is the province of a different class of people (predominantly con-men).

  39. Now I suggest you look at what he actually said, not what was reported by a woman with an extremely dubious grasp of the truth.

    His statement was prefaced with words that would leave no-one in any doubt that he was making self deprecating remarks and that he was poking fun at himself due to his age. He then followed the reported remarks with "but seriously.. " and went on to speak enthusiastically about the role women play in science before finishing with another joke about how women should pursue their trade "despite monsters like himself"

    I hate to have to link you to an article in the Daily Mail as it's an awful newspaper, however as it is one of the few places that has actually done any investigation into what actually went on it seems right to link it.

    You will note, if you do read the article, how it explains that an official from the EU was in attendance and took a transcription of what was actually said and provided an independent report on the meeting and the speech.

    The woman that posted the initial tweets condemning Sir Tim has a lot more explaining to do than he does, especially when you see how imaginative she appears to have been with her CV and work history.

  40. Have a look down the page at the post I have put in reply to an offendatron. It outlines how Sir Tim Hunt appears to have been the subject of intentional lies by the initial accuser, who seems to have a history of stretching the truth beyond the point of credibility.
