Our thanks to Jeff, one of our original supporters, for pointing us to this. Sir Timothy Hunt, a Nobel laureate, said this:
On his remarks about women crying, he said: “It’s terribly important that you can criticise people’s ideas without criticising them and if they burst into tears, it means that you tend to hold back from getting at the absolute truth.
Science is about nothing but getting at the truth and anything that gets in the way of that diminishes, in my experience, the science.”
What reasonable person could argue with those sentiments?
