Chris Chambers weighs in on Tim Hunt

Right on the mark from what I can tell. A great learning experience for how even the (apparently) nicest people can also be sexist, and how we all need to work on examining our unconscious biases (and words).

Hunt’s comments were unacceptable and stupid. He has yet to offer a full apology, which just shows how little recognition he has of sexism in science. Oh but he's old, right, so that's ok? Fuck that. My dad is the same age as Hunt, has one less Nobel prize, grew up in 1950s Australia (AKA Betty Crocker Central) and could teach him a thing or two about equality.
