what the actual fuck
TRIGGER WARNING: Sexism in picture
i cannot even
What the fuck is this?
I sincerely hope this was a post written heavily in sarcasm.
WITHOUT US MAKING YOUR FUCKING SANDWICHES YOU’D STARVE TO DEATH. WE’RE FUCKING RESPONSIBLE OF YOUR EXISTENCE. IF YOU DON’T SHOW RESPECT AND TREAT US LIKE AN EQUAL, YOU CAN GO AND MAKE YOUR OWN FUCKING SANDWICH.
Please tell me this is a troll. I cannot handle people like this. Why are gross things appearing on my dash all of a sudden that I can’t ignore?
Joan of Arc, Empress Theodora, Empress Wu, the Virgin Queen Elizabeth, Warrior Queen Zenobia of Palmyra, Olympias, Cleopatra, Cleopatra Thea, Nefertari, The Celtic Queen Boudicca, Princess Pingyang. To name a few.
All females who both ruled and fought with ambition and strength under them. Empress Theodora saved her husband’s and kingdom’s asses from rebellion and death. Joan of Arc lead France to several victories in The Hundred Year War. Princess Pingyang created and lead an entire army with out the help of her father and husband and aiding in winning her father the throne. These women did not need men. What they lacked in strength, they made up with wit. And all these women and plenty more wouldn’t need to left a finger to raise a sword or a kingdom over their head.
Kevlar, a steel-like fiber used in radial tires, crash helmets, and bulletproof vests, Life rafts, Rotary engine, Globes, Elevated railway.
All created by women.
Marie Curie; research radioactivity, and first person to win TWO Noble Peace Prizes. From physics and chemistry. Yeah, she was a scientist.
Who was maning the factories and kept America running in WWII? Women.
Who gave birth to your sorry ass? A woman.
Go make me a sandwich, asshat.
Reblogging again because….
Reblogging for the comments.
So women think they’re superior but they have an inferiority complex?
I mean, Jesus, you could at least be consistent with your banal sexism. Troll harder, OP!
Some reading for the OP:
Women in science, a lot more than you think. As a matter of fact, before the Manhattan Project, there were a pair of women scientists that had figured out about fusion. Too lazy to click a link or to do some research? Here, to start, women in science before World War II:
Marie Curie, the first woman to win a Nobel prize in 1903 (physics), went on to become a double Nobel prize winner in 1911 (chemistry), both for her work on radiation.
Lise Meitner played a major role in the discovery of nuclear fission. As head of the physics section at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Berlin she collaborated closely with the head of chemistry Otto Hahn on atomic physics until forced to flee Berlin in 1938. In 1939, in collaboration with her nephew Otto Frisch, Meitner derived the theoretical explanation for an experiment performed by Hahn and Fritz Strassman in Berlin, thereby demonstrating the occurrence of nuclear fission.
The Erlangen program attempted to identify invariants under a group of transformations. On July 16, 1918, before a scientific organization in Göttingen, Felix Klein read a paper written by Emmy Noether, because she was not allowed to present the paper before the scientific organization herself. In particular, in what is referred to in physics as Noether’s theorem, this paper identified the conditions under which the Poincaré group of transformations (what is now called a gauge group) for general relativity defines conservation laws. Noether’s papers made the requirements for the conservation laws precise. Moreover, among mathematicians Noether is best known for her fundamental contributions to abstract algebra, where the adjective noetherian is nowadays commonly used on many sorts of objects.
Inge Lehmann, a Danish seismologist, first suggested that the inside the Earth’s molten core there may be a solid inner core in 1936.
Women such as Margaret Fountaine continued to contribute detailed observations and illustrations in botany, entomology, and related observational fields.
Oh sure, that was before World War II. You might think that they stopped and went back to important things, like making sandwiches. Incorrect:
- French virologist Françoise Barré-Sinoussi performed some of the fundamental work in the identification of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) as the cause of AIDS, for which she shared the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
- Astrophysicist Margaret Burbidge was a member of the B²FH group responsible for originating the theory of stellar nucleosynthesis, which explains how elements are formed in stars. She has held a number of prestigious posts, including the directorship of the Royal Greenwich Observatory.
- Rosalind Franklin was a crystallographer, whose work helped to elucidate the fine structures of coal, graphite, DNA and viruses. In 1953, the work she did on DNA allowed Watson and Crick to conceive their model of the structure of DNA. She could not share the Nobel prize with Crick, Watson and Wilkins because of her premature death.
- Jane Goodall is a British primatologist considered to be the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees.
- Dorothy Hodgkin analysed the molecular structure of complex chemicals by studying diffraction patterns caused by passing X-rays through crystals. She won the 1964 Nobel prize for chemistry.
- Palaeoanthropologist Mary Leakey discovered the first skull of a fossil ape on Rusinga Island and also a noted robust Australopithecine.
- Italian neurologist Rita Levi-Montalcini received the 1986 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for the discovery of Nerve growth factor (NGF). She was appointed a Senator for Life in the Italian Senate in 2001.
- Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1995 for research on the genetic control of embryonic development. She also started the Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard Foundation (Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard Stiftung), to aid promising young female German scientists with children.
Women also won a lot of awards for their work, though not as many as they should have.
The Nobel Prize in Physics
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine

Oh, women can’t make decisions in a sound and logical manner? I need look no further than the passel of Republican candidates who CAN’T MAKE LOGICAL SENSE EVER! And yeah, I know one of them is a woman, but that’s one woman out of several men. And none of them can make sense.
So, that leaves mathematics! Philosophy and philosphers! Medicine! Click the links, you will be shocked and amazed!
In closing, two major things. First, HISTORY IS FUCKING AWESOME!
Second, go make your own fuckin’ sandwich.
