So this week’s Junior Scientist Power Hour is part I of a series about a course I took in University where we got to go dig up dinosaurs in Saskatchewan! It is highly educational, go read it.
And these are all the students who took the course with me! Nine women, two gay fellows, and one gender non-specific person. Dinosaurs and the sciences as a whole are NOT GENDER SPECIFIC. And yet so often we see the sciences marketed towards boys and men!! It’s so dumb!
And of the chicks on this course, I also think it’s important to note how different we all look. There are a LOT of ways that bodies are shaped, and any group of nine women is going to have a broad range of these shapes, and all of them are hot in their own way. But in media, and especially in character design, we so often see the range of female body shapes being limited to boob size and “the one that wears glasses.”
Be a little more creative, creators. Look at the women in the world around you, instead of the very narrow perception of women the media presents you with, or the one body type you have been taught is “sexually appealing.” Women can be passionate scientists and be chubby and still be hot.
