When you have to ask yourself the question
So girls? What are you waiting for to take over the field of science? Let’s think about it. I won’t go into great detail about why we should be dealing with such and such a topic, but one thing is for sure: this kind of topic depresses me.
Firstly, are we still talking about the place of women, men or any subset of our society? Why?! Take, for example, science publications. Right now, I’m reading a lot of books that are quite a few years old, and I have to admit that white men are overrepresented. But that doesn’t detract from my critical judgment of their work!
If a person named Chabibubo Smith published a manuscript or research paper, first of all, that name does not exist. Secondly, the name Smith cannot under any circumstances be associated with specific genes, nor Chabibubo associated with gender or non-gender. It could even be AI that is publishing the document!
In all cases, it is true that we must fight profiling, but all types of profiling. But most importantly, keep our mind open and critical.
