Annoying how as a woman in science u just can’t fucking win. Biology is the closest to being equal in terms of gender and it’s seen as a “cop out” science (despite the material being equally dense + challenging), yet in my chem/physics classes I feel like a fake and an outsider. Like I have to work twice as hard just to prove myself to a class made up of 95% dudes that I even belong there. It’s so satisfying to tell a smug engineer dude you’re doing a btech degree and consistently get higher marks in the labs than him. But it’s exhausting to feel like I’m fighting 100% of the time.
Bring on summer school maths eh.
