Math: the cog that turns the wheel...
Math is the cog that turns the wheel of our civilization. Without math there's no Science. Without Science there's no Research. Without research there's no Scientific, Medical, technological progress: no iPhones, no iPads, no computers, no Internet to shop online, no airplanes, no cars, no new textiles for fashion, no sewing machines to make fashion, no drugs to kill our illnesses, no electricity, no bridges, no dams, no roads, no buildings, no houses... Without Math we'll still be living in caves. Scientific research is carried out by less than 0.001% of the world population. And most of these scientists, who use math to make the rest of the world a better place, are men. If an impressionable 9 year old girl, who has a talent for math, sees a 'cool' girl wearing a shirt that says ' math sucks' that little girl,who could potentially become one of these scientists, would very likely shun math just to be cool. The statement on this sweater is irresponsible and plain ignorant
