    I have never heard or noticed such a comment or even such type of thinking, at least not during the last 30 years t in the universities I have been working.

    Th guy who said this is just talking bs. One should not ge too much excited on such comments…

    Axel, I’m pretty sure this is the exact point- the guy who said this is talking bs but that doesn’t change the fact that he said it to a real person, who was affected enough by it to want to share it as an example of casual sexism within academia. Your own personal experience doesn’t reflect the experience of every female scientist across the world!
