April Scientiae Is Here!

Scientiae’s April Carnival is now up – actually has been up for a few days while I’ve been off having migraines. Peggy has done an excellent job with many thought-provoking submissions. I particularly like Mrs. Whatsit’s ponderings on what it what it means to “have the balls“. And I positively swooned on reading Liz Henry’s submission. That’s some writing after Zuska’s own heart! Here’s a delicious excerpt:

You can see two assumptions set up here:

  • Women who like computers are ugly.
  • It fucking matters.

and

It’s tokenizing; it’s like suggesting women are only in tech because of Affirmative Action By Boyfriend.

Read it, read it, so much righteous anger combined with fantastic writing must be read!
Finally, here’s the call for next month’s Scientiae. Flicka Mawa wants to know how our views of ourselves and our careers have changed over time. Whoa, that will be a particularly difficult topic for me. Hopefully I’ll be able to get something written inbetween migraines which are just plaguing me these days.

    While I truly enjoyed mrswhatsit’s post (and I concur that “mangoes” would be a good trend to start), there are still some acts that do indeed require balls. No offense intended.

    Hey Zuska! I hope it won’t be too painful of a topic. Hang in there with those migraines, they sound awful! Hope they lessen up a bit soon!
