I’ve never been female. But I have been black my whole life. I can perhaps offer some insight from that perspective. There are many similar social issues related to access to equal opportunity that we find in the black community, as well as the community of women in a white male dominate society…

When I look at — throughout my life — I’ve known that I wanted to do astrophysics since I was 9 years old…I got to see how the world around me reacted to my expressions of these ambitions. All I can say is, the fact that I wanted to be a scientist, an astrophysicist was hands down the path of most resistance through the forces of society.

Anytime I expressed this interest, teachers would say, ‘Oh, don’t you wanna be an athlete?’ I want to become someone that was outside of the paradigm of expectations of the people in power. Fortunately, my depth of interest of the universe was so deep and so fuel enriched that everyone of these curve balls that I was thrown, and fences built in front of me, and hills that I had to climb, I just reach for more fuel, and I just kept going.

Now, here I am, one of the most visible scientists in the land, and I wanna look behind me and say, ‘Where are the others who might have been this,’ and they’re not there! …I happened to survive and others did not simply because of forces of society that prevented it at every turn. At every turn.

…My life experience tells me that when you don’t find blacks, when you don’t find women in the sciences, I know that these forces are real, and I had to survive them in order to get where I am today.

So before we start talking about genetic differences, you gotta come up with a system where there’s equal opportunity, then we can have that conversation.

"What’s up with chicks and science?"

Are there genetic differences between men and women, explain why more men are in science.

Hey Clone Club. We’re as excited as OB Tumblr can be to announce that there are only 24 more hours until the Orphan Black Season Two premiere. Here’s some quick reminders/suggestions of what you can do in the meantime:
24 hours is enough time to rewatch season one…twice. Do that. 
Do you have snacks in preparation for tomorrow? Great, buy more snacks. Buy all of the snacks (and pick up some tissues on your way out.)
Do that cool french braid thing Sarah has because…why not? 
Make some strawberry Jello. (It needs a few hours to set anyway. Isn’t food you have to wait to eat the worst?)
Clean your room. What? It’s messy and you know it. Don’t pretend, nothing gets past us. 
That’s all we got. Tomorrow’s going to be crazy exciting and we seriously can’t wait.

Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can. But life leaps over oblivion lightly, losing only a thing or two of no importance, and gloom is but the passing shadow of a cloud…
