Video of the Day- Dr. Danielle Lee Calls Biology Online Out For Calling Her A Whore

Never heard about Biology-Online until today and they’ve basically turned me off for life. Dr. Danielle Lee, a science blogger for Scientific American and all-around fierce lady, took to the Web to express her distaste for being called a whore because she politely declined to blog for the publication FOR FREE. The woman has high, intelligible standards, OK? However I can’t say the same for the Biology-Online editor, who goes by the name of “Ofek” in his/her email name, who, after reading Dr. Lee’s email of refusal, called her a “urban whore”.

So, Dr. Lee took to making the video that you see in this post, calling out “Ofek” and all other sexists around the globe, and with this video, she has won at the Internet for all eternity. As a female, writer/blogger, and human being, I tip my hat off to this woman. May the fight continue.

p.s. I just read that “Ofek” has been fired from his/her post at Biology-Online, according to ABCNews. Karma is real.
