Lipstick needed 

From Female Math Professor

I have a YouTube channel where I post math videos on various subjects. The channel has been up for a couple of years, and has gathered quite some subscribers and views. Most of the comments are nice and geeky. But two weeks ago I got a notification to review a comment. Someone commented that I “should have used some lipsticks to bring colors to the classroom.” Of course I blocked that comment.

Predatory Professor

From Disgusted

Today we hosted a senior and well-funded mathematician from Europe. One with a history of alleged sexual harassment. He described a new policy whereby all faculty without “habilitation” (similar to tenure-level experience) must be mentored by a senior faculty member. He then smiled broadly and said, “So I immediately sought out the most beautiful young woman and asked her to be my mentee.”
