#WomeninSTEM get a lot of “Reply Guys” who repeat the same unhelpful comments.
@shrewshrew and I (a woman & a man in science) have attempted to catalog those replies, to save us all the trouble of writing new responses every time.
presenting THE NINE TYPES OF REPLY GUYS
We will post one Reply Guy a day, and we welcome your thoughts and feedback.
Starting with a very nice fella, full of helpful advice, with one big problem:
Reply Guy #1. THE LIFE COACH
People who get annoying replies can tag the dude with the appropriate Reply Guy from this thread, and save themselves a pointless debate. That’s the idea anyway. And some guys seem to take it to heart when you point out that they’re being a cliché. #MeTooSTEM #MeTooPhD
If you like this #9replyguys thread, follow my 50-50 partner in this project, the amazing @shrewshrew. Plus STEMinist teachers/heroes @McLNeuro @NeedhiBhalla @gbaucom @GeoEdResearch @tishabohr @docfreeride @MeTooSTEM etc. & the #STEMTrollAlert boys

Reply Guy #4: COOKIE MANSTER
He’s such a nice guy.
(He might actually be a nice guy, which makes it hard to call this out. So here’s a tweet to help.)

Reply Guy #5: HIMPATHY
(coined by @kate_manne)
He's worried that with all this talk about #MeToo we're losing sight of the real victims: him and his friends.

Reply guys don’t take the weekend off, so neither do we!
Reply Guy #6: SEA LION
Hey, he’s just asking questions.
[tagging my co-author @shrewshrew]
Here's an earlier tweet about the origins of the term #sealioning. Reply guys: please don't @ me about how the term is offensive because the fictional woman in the comic strip is prejudiced against aquatic mammals. [This really happened.] #irrelevant

Reply Guy #7: THE MANSPLAINER
The internet is about sharing information, whether you want it or not.
🚨 Some of you are following me but not my co-author @shrewshrew, and I’m telling you, it’s a mistake
ICYMI, here is possibly the greatest moment in #mansplaining history. This dude takes @kimgoodwin’s flowchart for mansplainers (without attribution) and tries to mansplain it. It didn’t go well for him.
Reply Guy #8 will have to wait until tomorrow - apologies for falling behind schedule!

To all the bros on here worried that women aren’t being sufficiently criticized on this thread, I’m only gonna say this once, you men’s-rights loving, #himpathy-riddled babymen, so please refer to this tweet:

Reply Guy #8: THE PRESTIGE
Your career is a mere speedbump on a great man’s road to even greater greatness.

Reply Guy #9: TROLLS, CREEPS & FOOLS
Last, and certainly least: the category reply guys go to when they stop trying to hide it.
#9replyguys will return! Thanks from @shrewshrew & me ❤️
P.S. Carolinas, stay safe! If you can't evacuate text SHELTER & your zip code to 43362.

To all the guys who are frustrated & upset about our advice “Stop replying, start listening”: Please read this thread, which nicely illustrates the value of Shutting Up and Listening. #9replyguys

This piece eloquently explains the power of naming & categorizing toxic behavior patterns, and why it’s not “reverse sexism”

What's wrong w #9ReplyGuys? 1. Life Coach. Holding up this flashcard can be a crutch for ppl acutely sensitive to "being judged." a. We can learn fr convos abt the different norms & expectations - some of them gender-related or generational - tht ppl hold https://t.co/VynVGROm5a

After 2.5 years of wanting to stop #brexit I have in theast half hour converted to the leftwing case for #Brexit as the best way to achieve a socialist future and set out my reasons in this thread #leavernow #lexiternow
When I speak publicly about Indigenous issues, or take Q&A's after a screening, talk, or exhibition, something that often arises is people disclosing their fear of making a mistake in their work as an ally, or a teacher responding to the TRC calls to action around education. 1
☝As Hive operations steadily get interrupted and/or shut down, the network of communication that allows them to direct the people they're blackmailing, threatening and straight up mind controlling gets hit hard, too. If they cannot communicate, their programming breaks down. https://t.co/Q3mVkwOGS8
