Nobel Prize-winning scientist Tim Hunt created quite a stir this week after making comments at a conference for scientific journalists in which he said he prefers men-only labs because women fall in love and cry too much for his tastes. Aside from losing his job at the University College London, the first university in England to admit female students on the same terms as men, he sparked social media campaign from the ladies of science who’ve been hilariously mocking his comments with the #DistractinglySexy tag. Some of the more laugh out loud photos are below:From @JPournelle
