Acht Nobelpreisträger verteidigen Tim Hunt gegen den feministischen Lynchmob
A group of Nobel Prize winners have leapt to the defence of under-fire scientist Sir Tim Hunt, insisting that academics' must retain their right to absolute freedom of expression. The eight esteemed thinkers voiced concerns that their liberty is under threat following Sir Tim's social media lynching for comments made about females working in laboratories.
Hier geht es weiter.
Inzwischen dankt Tim Hunt den vielen Frauen, von denen er in den letzten Tagen Zuspruch erhalten hat:
"My inbox is now bulging with touching emails from young women scientists who have been kind enough to write and thank me for inspiring them and helping them on their way," Hunt told the Observer yesterday. "It has also been of great comfort to me to see many women at the top of science testifying for my record in supporting women scientists."
Top female scientists who have expressed support include physicist Dame Athene Donald, biologist Professor Ottoline Leyser and physiologist Dame Nancy Rothwell. All decried his jocular remarks, but described in warm terms his past support for young scientists of both sexes.
Feministinnen und andere Social Justice Warriors scheinen ein echtes Talent zu entwickeln, immer wieder gegen ausgerechnet jene Leute zu hetzen, mit denen sie eigentlich prima auskommen könnten.
