  • generally thinking "boy, those guys are a bunch of pigs." And they're right.

    Not everyone, certainly, but enough to make you queasy if you pay attention to the conversations at the conferences. It's unpleasant enough when it's not directed at you or your group, but it's downright nauseating if you're the target. The tacit approval it all gets (because, as Elaine points out, pretty much nobody says anything when someone gets obnoxious) makes it worse.

    It really shouldn't be much of a surprise there aren't many women (or too many minorities either, if you look around most conference floors) at the conferences, or in the field. Why work with the unpleasant and the people who approve of them?
