Sexism tolerated on WUWT (What’s Up With That) website hosted by former AMS certified (Seal 676 reti
I recently discovered WUWT, signed up, and have enjoyed getting four, five, and more first-class emails every day debunking climate change hysteria in the sciences; and I have enjoyed reading the usually witty comment section below each article.
So when I saw “Join the discussion” below an article entitled “Claim: Climate Change will be Solved by Feminism”*, as a sociological scientist, I added a couple of comments from the perspective of my own discipline. The gist of my comments was promptly deleted, leaving only a non sequitur which a small rabble of “scientists” shamelessly chewed over. How tiresome and frightening that so little has changed in the seventy-ish years of my life. Some “men” of science still push aside women’s contributions, or delete them as in this case, and the other men of science let them.

Eric Worrall. According to former President of the Republic of Ireland and former UN commissioner Mary Robinson, more feminism will solve the climate crisis...What can I say – somehow I always knew men would get the blame…
Annmarie Throckmorton to Eric Worrall. Here's the deal, there are many kind, knowledgeable, articulate, skilled feminist scientists hiding out there, but they won't interact until men stop using "feminism" as an expletive and an excuse to vilify them, and worse (I know a woman who was beaten simply for being a feminist-in Ohio, USA.) So gentlemen, if you want help from the ladies, for example, as did Einstein (Mileva Einstein), James Watson and Francis Crick (Rosalind Franklin), and Tsung-Dao Lee and Chen Ning Yang (Chien-Shiung Wu), then stop using FEMINIST as a curse word.
Anon. who knew…global warming is discriminating…shortly followed by racist and bigoted
Annmarie Throckmorton to Anon. Read my entry above yours, and put on your thinking cap.
Someone promptly deleted my first post (before the end of the day), which is not surprising behavior based on my seventy-ish years of life experience. I re-entered my first post, but I doubt the unhinged fringe elements who enforce male norms will let it stand.
Hugs. I’m wearing my thinking bald, but can’t find the entry. It must be because I’m not yet enlightened. Was it captured by the spam filter? Hint, some words, like ‘you denier’ will put you always to the queue. How did I evade that? Oh, now it’s Annmarie’s turn to use a thinking hat. Hint. You can do misspelings. (sic) And some other tricks.

You can see our little tête-à-tête posted on my blog, Flotsam And Jetsam, my website is inthetide.com. (07-05-18)
−and after my first post was deleted, the following posts were added, but no one deleted them.
rapscallion. Feminism IS a curse word. You give me on (sic) example of what men have but women don’t in terms of rights. I’ll tell you – Nothing. If anything women have more rights. It’s not equality you want – you want special treatment – special priveleges (sic)
Boys and men are discriminated against over and over. Girls are consistently encouraged, and they end up doing really well in school and university, getting good jobs – like a lawyer. Come 30, when they realise (sic) they need men, there are no men for them because women will marry up generally. All those men were snapped up long ago – and why is that eh?Yeah, that’s right, the boys didn’t bother and dropped out of school or university because they were constantly told they were useless, or stupid, or racist or sexist and male. Take your revolting feminism and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine.”
Krudd Gillard of the Commondebt of Australia. “I have put on my thinking cap. Supporters of climate change should not just have 0 children, they should off themselves to save the planet. Please, don’t let deniers like me dissuade you.”
Patrick MJD. “BCBill CAGW is a hysterical fantasy.” https://www.wired.com/2014/05/fantastically-wrong-wandering-womb/
“All of this knowledge, and I use that term loosely, arrived in Italy in the 12th century, and for the next several hundred years, much emphasis was put on scent therapy and sneezing (hey, sneezing may stop your heart, but it does wonders for the womb–OK, sneezing doesn’t actually stop your heart, and it does nothing for the womb). And by the 1500s, argues King, “the hysteria tradition was complete.” While wombs were no longer thought to wander, they were very much to blame for the ostensible irrationality of women. Over the course of several thousand years, the womb had become less and less of a way to explain physical ailments, and more and more of a way to explain psychological dysfunction.
In the 1700s, the theorized cause of hysteria began to shift from the womb to the brain. But this didn’t stop the emergence of the widespread female hysteria commotion in the 19th century, in which countless cures for haywire wombs were peddled on the population, including hypnosis and vibrating devices (not a joke) and blasting a woman’s abdomen with jets of water (sadly, also not a joke). And consider those women of Victorian literature, who were so overcome with emotion–and not at all the suffocating corsets–that they collapsed after announcing they had “a touch of the vapors.” Yes, those same vapors. And how to awaken these women? Smelling salts. Yes, those same foul odors of Hippocratic medicine.”
Timo V. Aargh. More feminism, more socialism, more who knows what -isms, more feelings, more soft feel good things. Less logic, less common sense, less data, less proper science, less grown up thinking. I feel sick.
Tom in Florida. Now before all you gals get your panties up in a bunch, listen to the words!

Why is it when people want to do something shameful, they put it in the voice of another ethnic group? Oh, right, it is called scapegoating. And, that song in particular is a pacifier to condition the victim (women) to accept sexist treatment by the perpetrator (weak men and the stronger men who enjoy seeing their machinations.)
Caption: My comment was deleted, but I restored it.
How long will it last, the comment or the sexism?
A lifetime of these underminings adds up to end-of-life exhaustion.
