Dear List, Some of you may be interested in a women's perspective concerning a previous post from Magonia regarding "the feminisation of ufology". ----- Source: Out Of Darkness Blog http://tinyurl.com/7kocwlq Saturday, June 16, 2012 What Would Ellen Ripley Say? by Elsie Conner A blog was published at Magonia on June 3, 2012 titled SHJ, IFOS, And The Feminisation Of Ufology. The short paragraph which refers to the feminisation of ufology has spawned a couple of other blogs where my latest post, The Frustrating Aspect of Alien Screen Imagery, has been linked with this article. It's interesting and tragic on several levels. Let's begin: Let me be clear, I am a woman, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a Ph.D. candidate in Electrical and Computer Engineering, I hold a job in my profession, and I am an alien abductee. I know a thing or two about discrimination, ignorance, cruelty, and just plain gender stupidity. First off - I have never heard of this survey of women in ufology. What is this survey and where can you find it? When was it conducted? Who participated in this survey? Nobody I know was involved in it. The first time I have seen this reference to this women in ufology survey is from the Magonia blog referenced above. I find it unprofessional not to mention anything about this survey's particulars. Is there any reason to believe this survey even existed? More at site... ----- Listen to 'Strange Days...
