I'm sorry, but that's just silly.  No man would have been given a
Nobel prize for being Pierre's assistant.  You don't like hearing
that, well, sorry.

Yes, assistant, your ass.  Quoting some spin-doctor talking about
"Marie's pivotal role" doesn't change the fact.  You've obviously put
too much stock in what Feminists and chivalrists tell you.

I *knew* it!  The least bit of opposition, and the rabid name-calling
starts already.

That's the sort of emotional chivalry that keeps these notions going.
Anyone can see that Marie Curie's is celebrated largely for her
husband's work.  You don't like that, so you call me names, but that
doesn't change the facts.

And take a moment to consider: In light of what you just called me for
nothing more than what I said, it's very clear that the whole issue is
colored by chivalry and a misguided notion that you are somehow
"defending" women by believing this.
