    Why Scientests Finding Water On Mars Is Blatant Misogyny

    Hi, my name isn't really important but what is important is the bold fact that I am a proud third wave feminist who is outraged by the recent discovery of water on mars. I'll go by the pseudonym Cynthia Whitehead to avoid the massive harassment I will certainly endure at the hands of the white-cis internet trolls. First of all let's go down the list of why the field of 'science' is a tool of white-cis, capitalist patriarchy: 1) the STEM fields are almost purely dominated by white men despite the fact that we have been rallying and trying to get our sisters of color in there for DECADES. 2) The scientific community as a whole pretty much only researches men's problems, breast cancer research has fallen to the wayside almost entirely. 3) All the MEN in this field fail to acknowledge the fact that they are privileged and don't deserve the wages they're earning. All white male scientists should be taxed at 80%-- to be donated to feminist research charities, but that's a discussion for another article.

    The obvious choice of the STEM community to pick Mars, the MALE planet (women are from Venus) should be disgusting enough. Why not Venus, huh, why didn't these misogynist assholes go look for water on Venus? I'll tell you why, sisters, pure misogyny. Pure capitalism in action and these sexist overlords aren't stopping there. As we all know there's water on Venus but Venal-water denialism has reached an all time high which culminated in the 'discovery' of water on the male planet, once again placing all the blame of the world on women and femininity as a whole. I hope one day STEM stops oppressing women and we are allowed to rise up. What a tragic day for women worldwide.
