I know one woman who is a math genius. She’s insane and is a genuine sociopath. They exist, but not in the form the artist of this strip imagines them to be.

That's not sociopathy, it's psychopathy.

Autism is a form of psychopathy.

Trust me, she's my aunt. I know she's a sociopath because she takes after her mother who is a sociopath. She'll lie, manipulate, backstab to get what she wants, all the while smiling and holding a Bible.

But does she also look like a bimbo?

She's an aunt of mine. Maybe she looked like a bimbo at one point, but... blech...

Not exactly the same, but without a doubt the highest skilled DBA I have ever worked with was a woman. She was quite unpleasant, but she was really good.

Because "omg hot chick is also smart" is a favorite trope played for laughs.

Even on the face value of. This person solves the equation, look how smart they are.

To just write that shit in and smugly walk away is a real cunt move. If you know the answer these people are struggling over, you should at least take a few minutes to explain how you got there so they can learn from it.

Their source for what can be considered "smart" is Good Will Hunting. Thats not how this works, thats not how any of this works.

So far off base they don't even understand how off base they are. Thats the issue when you base your reality off of what movies and tv shows tell you.

In my college environment if I stopped to help every study group struggling with a math problem I would never leave. Simply writing the answer and walking away absolutely is a cunt move.

Nobody said mathematics was going to be a hippy commune. It's cut throat and laden with psychological demoralisation tactics.

Enough to bring some men to their knees.

This is hilarious. In the real world at an actual engineering university there are 2/3rds men in the freshman class and 99.8% men in the senior class. Why? Because it's fucking hard. Even for smart people, it requires long hours of using your smarts as hard as you can. That is taxing for anyone. There is maybe .1% of the population of people who do engineering who are so smart and also driven and also functional that they can operate in that sphere at a much higher level, so they do. And there is the once in a few generations mind that can just operate at a practically intuitive level with concepts that boggle the minds of normal men.

In other words men who fill whiteboards with equations and work on them for hours or days are working really fucking hard and you are welcome to join but it's not fun and easy, it is difficult and rewarding. And women have other options for rewarding. I'm pretty sure the barrier to entry for influencing "the patriarchy" in meaningful and enriching ways is working really fucking hard.

Yup, women lovvve to bitch that they aren't CEOS, Presidents,etc. Well, until you work 80+ hours a week to make sure your startup is succesful, manage people, work long hours during crunch time, and make sure to keep customers happy, you can STFU

They pretend that the men are "only able to do that because they have someone at home taking care of the kids." Yes, they work EVEN HARDER to have enough money to pay for someone to watch their kids while they're working hard.

It's like they don't get that nobody enjoys spending 30 hours straight in the lab surviving on cup noodles and energy drinks in order to bang their head against 1500 lines of assembly code... they enjoy working for something and accomplishing it. If you don't enjoy work you won't do that kind of thing and you will end up servers and attendants and hospitality at min wage diluting the labor market.

Honestly that sounds an awful lot like a deployment.

what a disservice. There are plenty of top-tier women in science.....they just don't act like life is a Kotex commercial.

Yes, she's practically Feynman. Put Feynman in that cartoon and what do we have? The new method of QED.

Similar trope to child genius who has never played chess in their life beating a grandmaster.
