Resigning With Honours

Sir Tim Hunt has resigned as honorary professor at UCL, after his silly comments about "girl scientists".

What do we think we're doing, letting him get off lightly like that? He's still got a knighthood and Nobel Prize we could campaign to strip him of.

Do we have any sense of proportion?


  1. In the interests of "gender equality" he should now burst into tears.

  2. The problem with everyday #sexists like Tim Hunt is that they go through life thinking that they're being funny, when in fact, they're institutionally offensive.

    Perhaps he should be locked in a lab with a dozen feminists for a month or so and see if he could be converted. The danger is off course, that he'd fall in love with each in turn and try his luck with them,
