This is an extremely difficult time to be a scientist & even more so if you are a minority #WomanInScience.

Last night I went on @globalnews radio thinking I was going to talk about the differences between PCR & other screening methods for COVID—basically science.
The conversation was steered towards border policy & that some want more restrictions to be removed. Doing my duty as a scientist & using the best current evidence, I noted the rise in cases 🌍, the not so perfect💉 rate in some places & importance of using #RapidTest
I then urged my fellow Canadians to be prudent & cautious when making travel arrangements.
The host then made an off-the-cuff remark on how “if I were in charge of making that policy I would probably close the border”—a completely inappropriate misinterpretation of my advice‼️

As a Latina #WomanInScience, I'm proud of what I've done and the goals I've set for myself. However, there is one thing that's rarely talked about in academia: fatphobia. And this is especially evident in science. This isn't a pretty thread, and will make you uncomfortable. (1/n)
So, let's start with a self profile. I'm ~5'4" tall, and am a pretty standard size US 26. I've never shared this info publicly, and to be honest I'm VERY scared of sharing it. I've been overweight since childhood - since around 2nd grade. Yes, I got bullied throughout K-12. (2/n)
Yes, that bullying hugely impacted me. I was told by a parent that I needed to like less attractive people as crushes because then I'd have more of a chance. I've never had a romantic partner, and I'm still trying to get over society telling me I am nothing without one. (3/n)

Tak jo, když máme to výročí #ZenyVeVede, vyrobím pro vás jedno vlákno... Jeho cílem je ukázat, že výzkum Sluneční soustavy, není pánský klub... Takže, držte si klobouky, vyrazíme na krátký špacír po zákoutích Twitteru.
Dovolte mi, abych Vám jako první představil Dr. @SarahFagents, skvělou vědkyni, která se zaobírá sopečnou činností napříč Sluneční soustavou (❤️) a která má v současnosti své prsty v jednom vědeckém zařízení, konkrétně v Mastcam-Z, které nese na povrch Marsu @NASAPersevere.
Že Vás nebaví sopky, ale máte radši něco chladného? V ten moment se seznamte s Dr. @fegbutcher. Kdykoliv něco nevím o ledovcích na Marsu, obracím se na ní. Za mne jedna z mladých vycházejících hvězd marsovské glaciologie.
