Biochemist Schrier aces the beauty pageant. Well, if there has to be a "meat market" [says who?] then it is probably a positive that a scientist won it. Yes, I am aware that there are many negatives in such competitions. Such as objectivisation of women, ableism, etc. But on the plus side, and in the age of Trump and his INCEL, fascist nutters, it is a recognition of women in science of a sort, and the publicity might prompt more young girls/women into the sciences. When people in Alabama are talking about the DP for women who practice the right to choose to continue a pregnancy or not, I will take what good news I can out of the USA.
