Queer in STEM: LGBTQ in STEM: Who are we? -
To begin to answer those questions, we’ve initiated this online survey of LGBTQ folks working in STEM. If you’re queer, have completed at least a bachelor’s or technical degree, and are working in STEM in any capacity — grad school, the tenure track, corporate R&D, the nonprofit sector, or science communication — we want to hear from you, and we need your help to collect a comprehensive sample.
You can take the survey and learn how to help spread the word right here. Thanks in advance!
Some researchers from the University of Minnesota are working to get a sense of the LGBTQ populations working in STEM. It took me about ten minutes to complete. Make sure to read the consent form found here before starting.

(via Infographic: Is Your State’s Highest-Paid Employee A Coach? (Probably))
You may have heard that the highest-paid employee in each state is usually the football coach at the largest state school. This is actually a gross mischaracterization: sometimes it is the basketball coach.
Ugh. I wish this was a joke.
I found this on Fab.com the other day. I laughed first, but then it made me disappointed.
A request: If you are going to be a website that sells things with the word “fuck” printed on them (which is great), just go ahead and spell it out appropriately in the product description.
