Women are not creative.
Women do not innovate.

Someone needs to spend a lot of time playing with Radium...

Marie Curie
Harriet Tubman
Hedy Lamarr

Yeah...I think we're done here.

4/25/2010 8:59:07 AM

Even getting smacked by other love-shy users. Congrats Jack.

4/25/2010 8:59:15 AM


Marie Curie, Florence Nightingale, Clara Barton. That took all of one second.

Of course, I'm sure he'd take issue with my...expanded definition of "invention." Then again, he's a fucktard.

Traces Bullet

Marie Curie
Mary Shelley, onventor of a whole genre of literature
Fatima Al Fihri

your point being...?

4/25/2010 9:12:51 AM


Harriet Tubman was great and all but what did she invent Bowen?

4/25/2010 9:13:16 AM


Lady Ada Lovelace would be spinning in her grave if she could see what this moron is posting with a device descended from her work...

Dian Fossey wants to introduce you to a few of the gorillas she studied.

And Marie Curie would suggest that you go and play in a nuclear reactor.

Hell, the kevlar you may need to protect your dumb ass was invented by Stephanie Kwolek.

The first recorded chemist was a woman, Tapputi-Belatekallim, a Babylonian perfumer from around 2000BCE.

Not creative? Not free thinkers? Not innovative? Mary Shelley would like a word with you. She came up with an entirely new kind of monster, wrote a book that became a literary classic and got published in a period when women were not expected to do anything but look pretty and be entertaining to the men in their company.

I can name 5!

Marie Curie
Mary Anderson
Florence Nightingale
Quinn Cummings
Mandy Haberman

I found 25 with a quick google search.

I personally, am always solving problems by thinking outside the box (creatively) that my husband and other males in my life can't fathom (they're too logical to see things from a different perspective).

4/25/2010 9:28:59 AM


Tell me, Mister Jack, if you can- you have denigrated the creativity of women so much. What is it, exactly, that you have created? Can you name even one thing? I thought not.

4/25/2010 9:31:04 AM


I smell a person who has too little comfidence to define himself by his own qualities and must denigrate others not to feel worthless.

4/25/2010 9:59:02 AM

Oh, it's just Love Shy. Where the pathetic celebate come to vent.

4/25/2010 10:04:07 AM

Quantum Mechanic

Marie Curie
Rosalynd Franklin
Mildred Dresselhaus

4/25/2010 10:06:34 AM


Every single woman I know (and I know quite a few) is a free thinker, innovative or creative and most are all three. Clearly, you don't know a lot of women (I wonder why...)

4/25/2010 10:07:25 AM


Answers any questions we had about the state of your virginity Jack, it's alive and leading a full, rich life.

4/25/2010 10:08:27 AM

Hedley Lamar

@Bowen: That's Hedley!

4/25/2010 10:35:11 AM

Governor William J. Le Petomane

@Hedley Lamar: What the hell are you worried about? This is 1874. You'll be able to sue her.

4/25/2010 10:36:50 AM


Without looking it up:

Hypathia, Sophie Germain, Sonia Kowalewski, Emmy Noether, Lise Meitner, Marie Curie, Irène Joliot-Curie, Lisa Randall.

*facepalm* At the very least, Just Jack, be grateful to your mother for birthing you, though you contribute nothing to the species.

Just from the Computer and Information Science fields alone:

- Ada Lovelace - Widely considered the first computer programmer, more or less "inventing" the art of computer programming in the process.
- Hedy Lamarr - Two words: wireless telecommunications. She was also a talented actress and sexy as hell.
- Mary Ann Wilkes - Developed the first true computer operating system.
- Grace Hopper - Wrote the first language compiler (for COBOL, IIRC).
- Radia Perlman - Devised the spanning tree protocol.

That's five just off the top of my head. Though to be fair, I had to sort of "look up" Hedy Lamarr because I had forgotten her name, and I had to make sure I spelled Radia Perlman's correctly. Even if you count those two off for that, I still listed three, so in any case:

I read about the afterlife

I'll just change this to three great women in history.

Marie Curie
Helen Keller
Rosa Parks.

All of them were creative, free thinkers, and innovative.

4/25/2010 10:46:27 AM


THIS IS NOT FUNDIE. I thought that the trend of posting love-shy on FSTDT was over. Silly me.

4/25/2010 11:13:00 AM


Marie Curie
Rita Levi-Montalcini
Barbara McClintock

They are all Nobel Laureates in hard sciences. Curie was awarded twice.

See the site FAQ. While this particular post doesn't smack of being "fundy" as much as others from love-shy do, the site overall certainly fits the more loose non-religious definition which pretty much makes all the quotes on it fair game.

In the context of the love-shy site this is certainly fundy. By itself, without that context, I would agree that it's not really fundy at all but since we know what the site is about and what the usual posts are this is fundy enough for me.
