The Internet Called 2 Gay Scientists 'Women.' The Scientists Fired Back, 'How Is That An Insult?'

Science is ah-maz-ing! So why does it seem that most famous scientists are straight men?

I appreciate the way she handled herself, but I have to say that the 50-second mark is the best.

Laura's Story Was Shocking When It Was First Revealed. But Since Then, It Just Seems Kinda Normal.

Laura Jane Grace happens to be the lead singer of one of my favorite bands, Against Me! But aside from Laura’s music, she has a story that pretty much hits a 10 on the impressive scale.
