The difficulty of this feat can't be emphasized enough and the scientists and techies involved have a lot to be proud of.
But instead the feminist grievance mongers fall out in force to shift the attention away from this accomplishment in order to make it about themselves.
Here's a pretty good article laying the whole thing out.
1 small shirt for a man, 1 giant leap backward for women: Column
So how are things going for feminism? Well, last week, some feminists took one of the great achievements of human history — landing a probe from Earth on a comet hundreds of millions of miles away — and made it all about the clothes.You kind of get this weird feeling that now every scientific or technological achievement will be judged by man hating harridans who judge the scope of it by what is worn or owned by men who make the accomplishment.
Yes, that's right. After years of effort, the European Space Agency's lander Philae landed on a comet 300 million miles away. At first, people were excited. Then some women noticed that one of the space scientists, Matt Taylor, was wearing a shirt, made for him by a female "close pal," featuring comic-book depictions of semi-naked women. And suddenly, the triumph of the comet landing was drowned out by shouts of feminist outrage about ... what people were wearing. It was one small shirt for a man, one giant leap backward for womankind.~snip~
If a guy finds the cure for cancer I sure hope he doesn't have this on the mudflaps on his truck.
But they did force the guy to give a tearful apology. Although I would think if the feminists really wanted to flex their girl power they could get the animals of ISIS to blubber a little bit over their treatment of Yazidi women.
Here's a little hint ladies, if you can be so easily distracted from the goals of science or technology by someones apparel then guess what?
Science and technology ain't the career for you.
