Subject: What Would Ellen Ripley Say?

Dear List,

Some of you may be interested in a women's perspective
concerning a previous post from Magonia regarding "the
feminisation of ufology".

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?
