A group of eight female Russian astronauts is in training for a trip to the moon.
They were interviewed before entering a research facility to study their psychology. Some feathers have been ruffled by the institute director’s sexist remark about the women living with each other for several days.
“I’d like to wish you a lack of conflicts, even though they say that in one kitchen, two housewives find it hard to live together,” he added.
The Russian media questioned the astronauts about hair washing and living without men or makeup.
Unfortunately for the staunchest feminists, one of the astronauts said:
“I don’t know how we’ll survive without shampoo. Because even in this situation, we really want to stay looking pretty.”
Even Phys.org felt compelled to mention the color of their jumpsuits (red of course). Hopefully it was facetious.
Despite a lack of American-style political correctness, these women could land on the moon before another American does. Russian-style political correctness has a greater emphasis on actual politics where incorrectness can land you in prison.
Note—–I know I’m getting old, but please tell me some of you got the Jackie Gleason reference in the title.
