    It wasn't a public apology; see above. Again if your trolling then you got me.
    Welp, that seems like guilt over his thoughtlessness to me. Oh, wait. This man was criticized. That's so a new level of abuse and bullying. :V

    feminists perpetuating the stereotype that women care more about fashion than scientific endeavours

    I am just curious was he harassed? I am most certain that he got some level of harassment just as everyone does when they gain some level of visibility on the internet (a shame, really). But so far the only example of "harassment" given was that people called the shirt sexist, and criticism does not constitute harassment. I did hear him say that someone said that he was forwarded a message that he made them feel sick, and there were some messages with profanities, but I can't find much else.

    I am seeing a backlash though against feminism and I am not surprised, and accusations that we do not have our priorities in order and that we don't care about the scientific accomplishment. Well what about this guy? This is probably the biggest event of his life and he decides to wear a shirt that could offend people, and he called the mission sexy, and said that "she wasn't easy." It sounds like he wasn't taking his job very seriously either, and he could use a lesson in how to present himself at what seems to the equivalent of a press conference.

    Wow. I was re-reading this thread and musta overlooked this one. So many assumptions in this thread it's laughable. So, you just kinda are gonna assume this guy was a total misfit, socially inept "nerd".

    "Cuz all fat smart science guys were picked on in high school. You can totally tell because they aren't the traditional idea of male masculinity and look bad. And they probably don't bathe." XD

    -the inner mind of Drunkcat

    I dunno. It's this kinda thinking that allows shit like stereotypes to exist in the first place. And that includes the idea that all women are good for is to be sexy bitches to be displayed proudly in the boys only club of STEM.

    I hope you ponder on your (and others) thought processes in the future, and realize why they lead up to situations like this.

    "The friend" and her husband have come out to talk about the shirt.
    Getting a close-up view of the design, it looks more like spy-themed images than anything pornographic?

    That's it. I'm done. I'm SOOOO fucking done. Why is this an issue? It's a god damned shirt! You know if these feminists want to make a real difference, they should focus on the real issues, like how their shirts with something clever to say about how we can end the abuse and exploitation of women are made by WOMEN in overseas sweatshops for less than a US dollar an hour. It gives me a headache.

    Actually, sweatshops are something I wish ppl would talk more about. But you kinda have to accept the fact that a little foreign kid's health isn't worth the higher clothes prices to some ppl.

    It's really sad.

    Although why feminists who are saying something you don't agree with should say that and not everyone is sorta anyone's guess.

    ;3 it was a little bit of one. But to be frank, it's how you came off sounding.

    Fucking poor nerd with his pinup shirt. He probably got pantz everyday of his life, wanking alone with only his tears as lube. Then these commie bra burners come along, harass him over the internet and now he's gonna get post traumatic stress disorder. Couldn't they go attack Walmart for buying sweatshop made clothes? Leave this pitiful genius ALOOOONNNNEEEE~~~
