Matt Taylor, one of the chief scientists for the robot spacecraft Philae, that recently landed
on Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko you might recall, wore a shirt that apparently offended some hardnosed feminists, who made a huge deal about the whole thing.
Now, first of all let me be clear, I am not anti feminist, and those women are certainly entitled to
their self inflated opinion.
What annoyed me more than anything is that this shirt issue then became the issue, and not the fact
that a remarkable scientific feat had just been accomplished.
That was completely overshadowed.
Frankly, that's really sad.
To boot, the shirt he was wearing, was designed by a woman, and gifted to him by another woman.
This takes political correctedness to a whole new level.
Ok, rant over.
Now, let me tell you about some FREE SHIPPING offers we have going on right now.

PS Matt Taylor ended up apologizing for his so called faux pas. Next time he might end up
wearing a shirt with a picture of George W. Bush on it. Then let's see who get's offended!
