I have three practice partners, all men. One of them owns a pink stethoscope. Anyone who sees it sitting on the desk assumes it’s mine.
Mine is black.
How ’bout a pink scalpel? (Or did they already introduce that along with Grey’s Anatomy – the TV show, that is?)
You know, the pathologist’s two most common stains – H&E and dif-quik – are pink and purple. Sicily loves looking at tissue under the scope.
Ugh. I heard a bit with Danica McKellar on NPR on a new girl-oriented math book she put together. I was okay until this:
“I had a really fun time making the hard stuff accessible and putting it in the context of things that girls are already thinking about, like popularity and having a crush on a boy and shoes and shopping and all the other fun stuff that we girls have been obsessed with since the pre-teen years.”
Yeah, that’s just what I needed as a young girl – not skilled, encouraging math teachers, but my math to be about boys.
Ewww. Except for us girls that liked math and weren’t obsessed with those things.

I was never good at math, but my best friend was very good at it. So yes, girls can definitely make math pink.
