Cathy Young, of Reason magazine, wrote a great column about the #Shirtstorm surrounding a scientist from the Rosetta mission. If you haven’t heard about this, you should know that a British physicist, Matt Taylor, wore a really hideous t-shirt to a press appearance about the landing of the space probe on a comet, and as a result, Perpetually Offended Liberal Feminist Hosebeasts couldn’t cope.
The AP description, “garish shirt featuring a collage of pin-up girls” is pretty accurate. I mean, let’s face it. The shirt is heinous. But you would have thought, based on the reaction of feminists, that he’d worn a shirt that said, “I love rape” on it or something. A “journalist” from the Atlantic, Rose Eveleth, tweeted, “Thanks for ruining the cool comet landing for me a-hole.”
