I get some (goodnatured) grief over at Skepchick for being an old reactionary broad. You have to understand history to see why I’m the way I am. Case in point:

Careers for Girls (1966)

This is what was available to me as I was growing up. Gee, what were the choices I had in this game? Teacher, Actress, Nurse, Model, Ballet Dancer, or Airline Hostess.

Entomologist was clearly NOT an approved career :D
