So there was an article online about sexist engineering memes. I thought the article was great and it discussed a lot of problems with some of the photos posted on a specific meme page (not mine). One of the very bad photos, which I would never use is where a girl is trying to do a math problem. She is not able to complete the question so instead there's a sentence under the photo that says, "Eff this shit, i'll become a stripper instead."
These are the types of memes that I find distasteful and degrading to women. I do not agree with these types of photos and I believe that women in engineering are just as capable as men who are in engineering. Just because someone is a woman engineer doesn't mean she will under perform compared to her male counter parts.
I guess problems like these are what causes women from not joining engineering. But how do you know what is considered 'going to far' when creating these memes?
Here is the online article written about different types of memes that have been found to be offensive to women:
What do you think of these memes? How do you feel sexist engineering memes affect women in engineering and women who want to go into engineering?
