New UC Berkeley Study Suggests That Only "Hot" Women With Nice "Tits" Get Econ Prof Jobs

In a study that the New York Times described as "pathbreaking," University of California, Berkeley economist Alice Wu took a look at why women are so massively underrepresented in the Economics departments of prestigious universities around the country.  To our complete 'shock', she found that it has a lot to do with the 'fact' that men are just a bunch of sexist assholes who create work environments that are openly hostile toward women.  

So how did Wu arrive at this conclusion?  Well, in her paper entitled "Gender Stereotyping in Academia: Evidence From Economics Job Market Rumors Forum," she apparently analyzed roughly 1 million posts in an anonymous chat room frequented by econ grad students called econjobrumors.com to see which words are the best predictors of posts about women vs. men.  You know, because people behave exactly the same in anonymous chat rooms as they do in real life.

Be that as it may, Wu found that posts related to women were most frequently commenting on their personal attributes with words like "hot", "tits", "bang" and "horny." 

That said, despite a lot of chatter about "homosexual" male economists, men in the profession were at least sometimes referenced for their professional accomplishments...and not just for their sexual preferences.

Here's the list:

So what can we learn from Ms. Wu's research? http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-08-23/new-uc-berkley-study-suggests-only-hot-women-nice-tits-get-econ-prof-jobs
