There was a workshop at @CERN recently: "1st Workshop on High Energy Theory and Gender". Apparently Strumia gave a talk and manages to hit every horrible idea on gender issues in STEM while demeaning his female colleagues (at CERN and everywhere else). 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️
.@jesswade I see your name on the participant list. Were you there for his talk?
Slides are here:… #WomeninSTEM
Some gems. "Oh look, I proved men are treated worse than women in physics, because wars."
"Convert IQ to citations...." Shall I go on?
Woe the men felled by those angry women who cannot take a joke!
What? Plains of Africa? I am gonna assume he wanted to call this slide "Feminazis are here to take our jobs" but he's too sensitive to do that.
I'm gonna count every minute I spend "discussing" this as one citation for myself. 🖐️🎤 #WomeninSTEM
New info: Strumia was NOT invited but wanted to give a talk on his "biblioranking" paper and it turned into this.
Slides are more mild than the actual talk 🤦
Slides aren't online anymore but of course they were downloaded. Thanks to @drc83 for the link.
.@CERN statement:… Alessandro Strumia is not named personally, but let's have it here as a record.
I should clarify: I was not at the workshop. I'm waiting to hear a clear account of how the talk went down from friends and colleagues who were there.
Just in from Strumia himself!
Newest update: Strumia suspended from any CERN activity! Yessssss!
Another update: From European Research Council who pays for Strumia to be hosted at CERN:
