Apparently this is how women become big in my field…

From Anonymous

I work in a visual cognition lab. We were talking about a female postdoc in the lab becoming “a big professor” in the field someday and the (older, male) PI immediately started telling us about another woman in the field who is currently “a big professor” in the sense that she’s pregnant. Because what do you call a woman who’s big in a STEM field? Pregnant! Our PI is a very funny man.
