Welcome to the Legion!


Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson was asked a pretty ridiculous question about whether or not genetic differences were the reason more girls don’t choose science as a career. No, really. A reporter actually asked the man this question. Just watch his response. It’s amazing.

  • That’s not Lawrence Summers in the video (Google him and you can see that it’s not the same guy). The questioner in the video was just giving the panel the opportunity to respond to Summers’ (horrifyingly sexist) comments about why women are underrepresented in the sciences.

  • Hispanics have a tendency to be more slender and can keep up their weight better (take a gander at what they eat). Likewise, most Hispanic racers have been hustling since they were in review school in light of the fact that in Mexico they can begin coordinate dashing steeds at an early age. In the U.S. you must be 16 to race. Hispanics are great horsemen too. http://www.assignmentdoer.com/

  • I am wondering why on Earth a reporter asked this question. What education has to do with gender. These reporters should have charged with penalties for inappropriate questioning, having zero knowledge about the topics reports sometimes asked irrelevant questions. There should be criteria for the reporters before participating in any conference. https://cheapessaywriter.com
