Graham, L. et al.
First-year grad student Julie Constantinou made the same foolish mistake as countless others in her position; assuming that her homely cotton lab coat would shield her from both acid spills and repeated lewd comments about her body.
“The 8th grade spaghetti strap, sure, of course the principal would say I was asking for him to have impure thoughts,” explained Constantinou. “Then in college, it’s like, ok true, my varsity sweater did have a particularly deep crew neck.”
The culprit this time?
“I think it was because the sleeves were too revealing?”
After graduation, Constantinou hopes to pursue a career in nuclear waste removal, in the hopes that in a hazmat suit, men will finally think of her as an amorphous equal.
