Am I right in thinking that noone would care if I become a top physicist because I'm not black and I'm not in a wheelchair? I'm just a normal looking white guy, so noone would even notice.
I'm not going to make myself into a freak or talk about pseudo science. I'm more concerned about doing actual research that progresses science. I just wish people would care about the actual science instead of the media aspect of it.
Media is to entertain people. The average citizen work non-scientific careers. Those citizens really don't give a shit to listen to some normal dude speak monotone about paragraphs of jargon.
