Stupid EU video PSA shows how *not* to promote science to young women

[Video Link] The title tells you there's gonna be trouble even before you hit play. "Science: It's a Girl Thing!" is part of a European Commission campaign to promote science careers to young women, who remain greatly outnumbered in the field and face gender discrimination in academic and professional environments (yes, guys, even today). More in the LA Times, Inquisitr, Advertising Miami, Physics Central, New Statesman. Below, Astronomer Dr. Meghan Gray responds.

(thanks, Miles O'Brien!)
