A woman walks through airport security with two laptops.
“Huh. Why do you need two laptops?” asks a curious man.
SEXISM. THIS. IS. SEXISM.
*I take out both of my laptops at airport security* Random guy: *scoffs* “What do you need 2 laptops for?” Me: “Well one is for my astrophysics work and one is for my artificial intelligence work.” #priceless #WomenInSTEM #womenintech #ai #GirlBoss

Amber apparently works in astrophysics and artificial intelligence. She’s very smart. Did it once occur in that MASSIVE brain of hers that most people don’t have two computers, and the dude was curious? Did it once occur to her that the guy may have asked the guy the same question?
She even wrote an article about it.
Is anything EVER just a random question or comment? Like ever? pic.twitter.com/hIT09jxak7

I carry two laptops. Not because I’m super smart like you but because one is for work and the other uni. Almost every person I interact with who sees them asks why I would need two laptops. You’ve had to an awful lot of assumption to arrive at being offended. Why?

THIS IS A MAN. So there’s that.
I’ve asked guys why they need two screens before.

Or just really, REALLY committed to being a victim.
Her entire tweet reads like a thought she had before she fell asleep of what she wished she’d said.
“Ohhhhh the patriarchy is gonna GET it tomorrow with this FIRE tweet, boyyyy!”

“Women are strong and powerful”
*deals with any little thing that any other human would encounter*
“Help, I’m being oppressed!”

BINGO. How is it that feminists are also the LEAST empowered women? TOUGHEN UP. FFS.
Update: A previous version of this story indicated that the man was a TSA agent. He wasn’t. It was a random dude!
