Women Respond to Nobel Laureate’s ‘Trouble With Girls’
NY Times - DAN BILEFSKY - JUNE 11, 2015

LONDON — A Nobel laureate has resigned as honorary professor at University College London
after saying that female scientists should be segregated from male colleagues because
women cry when criticized and are a romantic distraction in the laboratory.

“Let me tell you about my trouble with girls,” Mr. Hunt said Monday
at the World Conference of Science Journalists in South Korea.
“Three things happen when they are in the lab: You fall in love with them,
they fall in love with you, and when you criticize them they cry.”
“I did mean the part about having trouble with girls,” he said.
“I have fallen in love with people in the lab and people in the lab have fallen in love with me,
and it’s very disruptive to the science because it’s terribly important
that in a lab people are on a level playing field.”

And he elaborated on his comments that women are prone to cry when criticized.

“It’s terribly important that you can criticize people’s ideas without criticizing them
and if they burst into tears, it means that you tend to hold back from getting at the absolute truth,”
he said. “Science is about nothing but getting at the truth, and anything
that gets in the way of that diminishes, in my experience, the science.”
