You know what the world needs less of? Mixed-sex scientific labs. After all, how’s a super-smart science guy supposed to get anything done with all those lady scientists around, distracting them with their constant crying and sensuous ways?

Or at least so says Nobel scientist Tim Hunt. (Yeah, we didn’t know who he was either until he reignited the gender wars this week.) Speaking at a conference in South Korea, Hunt said all of those things and more, including, but not limited to: Girls cause men to fall in love with them and cry when criticized. Oy vey.

His remarks left women (and the majority of the world) reeling, and although he has since half-apologized and stepped down from his job, female scientists rightly decided to take a stand against his sexist spiel by posting poignant and hilarious photos on Twitter demonstrating just how #distractinglysexy they can be:

Thank you for not crying Marie Curie.

Please don’t criticize this woman’s sexy work attire.

Tim Hunt gives this two sexist thumbs up.

Okay, now she’s just doing it on purpose.

Female worker bees for the win!

Because we all know women can’t breathe unassisted.

Hunt’s dream come true.

Jane Goodall seduced all the male monkey scientists. Fact.

Poop is way sexy.

Random male, avert your eyes now!

Clearly, she’s exciting that camouflaged male(?) turtle…

To which we say: If you think you’re sexy, come on, women, let us know: #distractinglysexy. Because we just can’t get enough of you.
