I believe you're criticising someone for their choice of clothing.
Yes, yes I am. There are plenty of forms of clothing I'd criticise. You see, clothing is part of someone's behaviour and behaviour is not above criticism.
So, does that mean it is okay to criticise women who dress scantily? Because ISTR that one of your previous arguments was that you cannot and should not criticise a women for the way she dresses.
So? What does that have to do with it? Why are women so special that one speaks for them all?
You tell me - it's a few feminist activists who are presuming to speak for all women.
Ah so all the complaints "don't count".
It's not that they don't count, it's just that the people who are his peers and who work with him count much much more than the opinion of someone who's only claim to fame is talking on behalf of the worlds women. It's an incredibly damaging stance to take - "world-class scientist must acquire fashion sense" - and one that is especially demeaning to actual female scientists (who may have actually worked with this man). This author who first complained about the shirt, and all others that came after her to do the same, are determined that the role of women in this endeavour that is displayed to the public is reduced to "fashion critic". If they were interested in equality they would have simply interviewed the leading female scientists instead of making fashion critiques.
I'm not sure your outlook is as egaletarian as you feel it is, because your next paragraph leads into random ad-hom about large sections of the population merely because you don't like them. Remember: there's no such thing as reverse bigotry. If you're bigoted against rich white women then you're a bigot plain and simple. The fact that they're rich and white (not sure what that has to do with this anyway) does not make your bigotry worthy, nor does it make you egalatarian.
Pointing out that the demographic (rich white women) who are complaining are the most well-off in the world, as a group, is not bigotry. I like rich white women just fine. It's only rich white women who complain that they are not getting enough that are the ones I don't like.
Disliking people because of their opinion hardly counts as bigotry.
