Again with the bikinis!

Posted: October 7, 2010 by Jender in sexual innuendos

I’m a female grad student and last summer I was surprised to be invited to a philosophy retreat with some esteemed profs and their students who work in my area of specialization. When I arrived and met the other (all female) grads they told me that of course I had been invited – I was a woman. Later when walking over to join a discussion with some of the (all male) profs, I brought some beverages with me. The man who wrote the first textbook I ever read in what is now my field, part of what made me want to become a philosopher, looked at me walking over with the beer and said: “wow, the only thing that could make this better is if you were in a bikini right now.”
