I fell apart at Government Majors
I almost want to identify as demisexual, but I realize that I’m not. I can feel sexual attraction for someone who isn’t in a close relationship with me, but I won’t act on it.
So I can be attracted to people regardless of gender. I do not form romantic feelings prior to an emotional connection being established. I experience sexual attraction, and have a sex drive, but it’s something to the tune of, “I haven’t had sex in 2 years and this doesn’t bother me and I masturbate once a week, at most.”
That sound about right for the description of the “title” I’ve given my sexuality. I think it does. But man, what a mouthful.
One would assume that scientists, who are trained to think objectively, are completely immune to gender discrimination. However, a recent Yale study by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues suggests otherwise.
The researchers created a fictional student and sent out the student’s application to science professors at top, research-intensive universities in the United States. The professors were asked to evaluate how competent this student was, how likely they would be to hire the student, how much they would pay this student, and how willing they would be to mentor the student. All of the applications sent out were identical, except for the fact that half were for a male applicant, John, and half were for a female applicant, Jennifer. Results showed that, with statistical significance, both male and female faculty at these institutions were biased towards male students over female students.
Data from the study shows that on average, science faculty was willing to pay the male applicant about $4,000 more per year.
