    Just submitted this complaint to the BBB:

    This outfit (Eppendorf) has a very gender biased webpage – anti-woman and demeaning to women scientists – as an ad for one of its products at the following website:

    http://www.eppendorf.com/int/hawkpopup.php?contentid=13

    It’s pretty disgusting, and was first noted on the Green Gabbro Science Blog at http://scienceblogs.com/greengabbro/2008/07/delicious_internet_noms_5.php

    I am not the above blogger. I thought Consumer Reports used to handle this kind of thing, but couldn’t find anything on their website, so I am referring this to you.

    Thank you.

    Could you elaborate a bit? All I could see was a parody of a boy band music video, so I’m not sure what you are finding offensive. No real innuendo, no intimidation, no power imbalances, just an implication of developing carpal tunnel as a pretext for replacing a few grad students with a machine.

    Tala: Actually, I mostly just found it awful from an artistic perspective. I’d watch it again, but I don’t want to be earwormed – maybe Silver Fox or someone else could explain what they saw?
