I'm sure most of you know about the Philae lander and how it landed on a comet earlier this week (amazing if you ask me). One of the scientists on the team, Matt Taylor, stirred up some controversy during an interview because he was wearing a shirt with pictures of women in bikinis. This offended some people, and they took to social media to say he's sexist and all that. Taylor later apologized for wearing that shirt. If you want more info or want to see pictures, just search for "Matt Taylor shirt." Here's my problem. I don't think that shirt was sexist at all, and no apology was necessary. Yes, it was unprofessional of him to wear a shirt like that, but I don't have a problem with what was on the shirt in this case. Aside from all the hate he's getting, what bothered me was that some people cared more about his shirt than the fact he helped land something on a tiny comet moving tens of thousands of miles an hour. Look, I'm all for gender equality, but when some people call something like this sexism, it bothers me. There are actual gender inequality problems out there, and using this as an example of gender inequality just makes me take you less seriously. In my opinion, people are getting offended by this shirt for no reason. If you want examples of women being objectified, just look all around you. Turn on the TV, watch a music video, or glance through a Victoria's Secret catalog. There are plenty of examples where women actually are being treated unfairly, but Taylor's shirt isn't one of them. Now, I can certainly agree that gender inequality is a problem in STEM fields. These fields need to be more accessible/inviting to women, but if you're a woman looking to be an engineer or a scientist, you shouldn't let a shirt stop you.
