Bouncin' Boobs for Science!
Could you ever imagine an entire engineering festival selling boys the idea that they can be sex objects and great scientists at the same time? Have a few oiled-up shirtless beefcakes strut their stuff in Speedos, do a few group-choreographed pelvic thrusts while chanting, "Chemical reaction!" maybe? Could you? To sold-out crowds at stadiums and whatnot? And signing autographs after their "performance?"
That's right. It will never happen. People presume boys are more intelligent than that. They have more self-respect than that. They don't need to evaluate some dude's shaking wiener and butt to decide on a science career.
Why can't anyone respect the intelligent young women? Is this really the sort of thing that "inspires" a girl to achieve academically? I'm thinking no.
