Every women already has access to a science lab, it's called a kitchen. Bunsen burner?!?! You already have a stove! Petri dishes?!?! You have a sink full of dirty dishes!!!!
Ladies, becoming the next Tesla just isn't in your cards, but Julia Child is something you can aspire for!

Normal girly things are BOOORRRRING. Female habits annoy me. Their emotions annoy me. Their gossip annoys me.

Apparently, except for those tyrannical atheists who want to rule the world and impose their morality on to the poor poor religious people who just want to be free to impose their religious morality onto the entire world. Oh, those poor poor religious zealots who hate anything that isn't religious. What ever will they do without those atheists getting in their way! Those damned atheists! SHOOT THEM ALL AND LET GOD SORT THEM OUT!
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH ATHEISTS ARE RUINING THE WORLD BECAUSE THE WORLD SHOULD BELONG ONLY TO THE RIGHTEOUS RELIGIOUS PEOPLE!
Please, the righteous religious zealots only want to save your soul. Won't you let them save your soul and FRAKING DO WHAT THEY TELL YOU TO DO AND STOP LISTENING TO THOSE FRAKING RETARDED ATHEISTS WHO CAN'T BE SAVED!
FRAK THE ATHEISTS! DOWN WITH THE ATHEISTS!
Thank yew fer yer support.

Geez, I don't know what to make of this. I just don't see how watching this video as a girl contemplating a career in science, that watching them parade around a lab in high heels and makeup would put me over the edge in decision making. I think like many of the posters above, that if you are attracted to science in the first place, a "girlie" approach is not going to mean anything, and I see how it could be offensive. But, I have always liked science, so maybe I can't speak for others.
I grew up in Texas during the eighties, and I can tell you that the message I got growing up was that my value in society had a lot to due with appearance. Drill team, cheerleading, etc. were highly valued when I was in high school, becoming a research scientist with a speciality in gene therapy was not. That was one of the things I was interested in, but my male general science teacher discouraged me, saying that it was not a place for a woman. He did not really influence me one way or another, but I do know that nobody stepped up to steer me towards this career. Nor were any of my girlfriends interested in science. I have a great life, but sometimes I regret not having pursued this career. Perhaps a mentor would have been great, but this video, not so much.
