What do you think about this? Should great individuals who service the society in many ways more than many other people be forced out of their works because of making a comment like "Three things happen when they (women) are in the lab: you fall in love with them, they fall in love with you, and when you criticise them they cry." that might seem or be offensive/sexist to women?
Even if it's offensive it's an opinion.
I've been bullied in the university this past winter and for the past two semesters by some boys because they especially one of them thought I am privileged.
I didn't care about any of them, I didn't generalize all men, I didn't become man-hating, and I didn't want "him" to stay out of the class because of his obvious sexist comments about me. It was his honest opinion. but at last he himself got out of control and said something offensive very loud that hurt me and I couldn't stay in the class and went out and later I heard the professor made him cancel his class. After that I cancelled my semester and took a break with my boyfriend and still feel uncomfortable about it. (I felt so bad that night I even asked a question here).
I've been subjected to bullying and sexit opinions myself.
But what I say is that even with the existence of some of these attitudes should the person be treated like this for having an opinion and expressing it? And so many women who have obvious comments against men face nothing of these kind of reactions against them.
Sir Hunt told "when they get criticised they cry", and then there was these reactions against him that made him get resigned. Pretty much proves his point if you ask me.
My own opinion is that women should stop being whiny and so easily react to opinions of people. If you really "can do it" stand people's opinions even if they are offensive and "do it" to prove them wrong instead of forcing great people out of their work because you can't take an opinion.
sexist or not, I consider these reactions nonsense.

I was gonna write something but in the end you took the words your of my mouth... "women should stop being whiny and so easily react to opinions of people. If you really "can do it" stand people's opinions even if they are offensive and "do it" to prove them wrong instead of forcing great people out of their work because you can't take an opinion."
'Nuff said really.2
