No surprise. Spend some time on a physics forum and you'll quickly notice that it is very competitive macho world.

I was hanging around this place last week:

And to this thrown at me (Elle H.C.) :

"Well, hope you get run over and die a painful death”

“you can retcon those months in intensive care as your healthcare costs put you in penury whilst you’re in agony”

“May you live long in agony!”


Go figure. :roll:

You also may want to check this article on harassments within Physics community, goes to show that it isn't uncommon:

http://www.forbes.com/sites/startswitha ... 1c5b12ccc0

"What they found was shocking:

• That more than 82% of all respondents (including men, women, people of color, and LGBTQ-identifying individuals) had reported hearing sexist remarks from someone that they worked with, with a full 44% reporting hearing it from their advisor.

• That 57% reported being personally, verbally harassed (and 9% physically harassed) because of their gender.

• That 24% of all respondents reported feeling unsafe in their workplace because of their gender.

• And of that 24%, more than 75% of those also reported skipping conferences, seminars or other opportunities for professional development because of a pattern of harassment and a culture that accepts it as part of the norm."
