hi, I’m an evolutionary biologist & an #intersex person! πŸ‘‹πŸΎ sex is not binary in a TON of species, inc. vertebrates, mammals, & us. some ppl like me don’t make eggs or sperm. & intersex =/= disorder, just another biological way of being. sex variation in humans is substantial!
hey folks! I’m so happy to see so many of you who accept that sex variation isn’t binary (as we know bc science) & support #intersex ppl! πŸŒˆπŸ’–β€οΈπŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ #IntersexAndSTEM #DiversityInSTEM #LGBTQIAinSTEM #SexIsNotBinary #SexualPolymorphism
there are some great points being made & questions being asked in the comments, as well as some inaccurate (& deeply troubling) ones - I’m gonna do my best to address a few of the most common ones! #SexualPolymorphism #intersex #evobio #IntersexInSTEM #DiversityInSTEM

Hi tweeps! Remember back in March, I made a mega-thread of amazing #WomenInSTEM that you should follow, especially for #IWD2018? If not, here's the 'moment' I made from it…
Well, today (19 Nov) is #InternationalMensDay #IMD2018, and I wanted to mark the occasion. So here are SIXTY men working in STEM who also happen to be some of my favourite tweeps. This is by no means an exhaustive list - please don't be offended if you're not on it!
PS: I have some actual (paid) work to do today, so I'll update the list when I can, in between all my other commitments. Please be patient 😊

Less than a day tweeting here and I'm already being asked to comment on gender in science/academia. No surprise to any of my fellow #womeninSTEM...
I have a lot to say about women in science - the barriers we face and what we can do to change things for the better. But I also wish that we could sometimes just be scientists, and didn't have to always be Women In Science.
It's not great to feel the pressure to represent an entire marginalised community (like @xkcdComic shows below). Not just #womeninSTEM, but #queerinSTEM #BLACKandSTEM #LatinxinSTEM and a lot of others who feel pressure to be a 'model minority'.
