“When Cristina McAllister was growing up, it was hard to find a science kit for girls that wasn’t just a make-your-own make-up or soap kit. Meanwhile, the kits marketed to boys had all kinds of cool and complicated experiments just across the toy store aisle.
“Years later, McAllister is working hard doing real-life science as a biologist and … decided to make Stembox, a monthly-subscription box of real science-y goodness delivered right to your door. Think Birchbox meets Bill Nye.”
I get that the reporter was probably interviewing tons of people and can’t research them all, so I don’t think he was being deliberately sexist — I do think he may have asked the same question of any male actor from that show.
However, you ARE an entertainment reporter. This is just a casual interest of mine, not my JOB, and I knew she was a nerd ninja.
