re: Sexism in science: Peer editor tells female researchers their study needs a male author – The Washington Post

Apparently the study was so flawed that only a man could fix it.

Just ’cause, you know, it isn’t science without at least a trace amount of testosterone spilled on it.

Or — and this seems more likely to me — the editor is himself hard up for papers with his name on them, and desperately hopes that he’ll be the man they chose for co-author.
