Anyone on this planet earth doesn't care if Dr. Matt Taylor, one of the Rosetta mission scientists landed the Philae spacecraft on a moving comet, 4 billion miles away from earth after 10 years of hard work, but feels that pin up women in bondage gear with guns in their hands, posing on his Hawaiian shirt (made by a female artist frind for his birthday) is sexist and ostracizing was just over reacting, trolling, harassing, bulling, and humiliating.
What was so noble behind all that shirt storm?
What was so offensive about that shirt?
Why it hurt few peoples' butt?
Was it telling the world that, "that scientist" is misogynist, or if nothing personal just that any one who wears such type of shirts are misogynist and their sole purpose is to objectifying women?
Or any scientist who wear such shirt is against women who want to study science and being scientists?
Or he wore that intentionally to send a message to women out there that science world is for men only, ladies stay outta it ?
Or it was an inappropriate attire for big events like comet landing event?
First thing, people who started that shirt storm don't know him personally. So calling him or anyone without knowing misogynist is so low.
What actually happened that they just noticed the half naked women posing on his colorful shirt and tweeted.
It spread like wildfire. Bulling started.
Other empty heads hop on the wagon of feminism and started bulling him day and night for something about which no one gave a fuck about. Dragged him in the kangaroo court of social media.
During the live ESA broadcast on Friday his hands were literally trembling as he was apologizing and in the end he broke down in tears.
“I have made a big mistake. I have offended people and I am sorry about this.
Dr. Matt Taylor did not make any mistake and he did not offend a single soul with his cool shirt. His shirt was not making any statement. He did not make any sexist joke. The It was just a shirt.A cool shirt. And people will remember it as Dr. Matt Taylor cool shirt.
His shirt was just shirt and shirts give no signals to anyone. Some people can over react over small things and good in making a mountain outta mole hill. Nothing else.
Don't tell me it was giving a single of no women are not allowed in science club. His boss is female for your information. There are other women scientists who are working in the European Space Agency and NASA.
Calm your tits !
To me his only mistake was apologizing.
I would never apologize for being me.
That public apology was forced.
Only one who should be sorry should be those people who bullied and humiliated him, and made him cry in front of the whole world.
And more importantly we have no right to ask or tell what a scientist should wear during a comet landing event.
He is not answerable to us.
He doesn't work in any office, bank or school where he should be careful for his outfits, fashion taste, and tats. He is an astrophysicist, a space scientist and has no obligation to wear any specific dress code for your kind information. His boss would never sack him for wearing inappropriate shirts or having tats.In science world it doesn't matter.
In science world it doesn't matter whetear you are women or men. His boss is a women. There must be other female scientist working in ESA and NASA.
That shirt was his choice and we have no right to turn that great day and all the achievement in to a shirt storm because it offended feminazi.
So we should kindly shut up about it.
Problem with the western feminists is that they have nothing much left to fight for.
They live in a developed world where they don't have to take permission to study, to go out, to marry the person they want to marry, to work what and whatever they want to work, like women from other part of the world take.
There must be some issues, no doubt, however his cool shirt is of none of them.
