Twitter is not having it with McCullough.

In response to the question, ‘What do you consider feminism to be and do you consider yourself a feminist?’, McCullough took a moment before responding with:

‘As a woman scientist in the government, I’d like to transpose the word feminism to equalism. I try not to consider myself this diehard, like, I don’t really care about men.’


Twitter users quickly chimed in with their ‘Girl, what…??’ reactions.
