"the socially and sexually hapless gammas"
Because all scientists are dorks.
What if our lady scientist is a socially and sexually hapless gamma as well? What if she actually attracted to geeks - especially given that she went into a nerdy profession?
"who might have otherwise happily spent decades slaving away in the laboratories."
Have you ever heard of "inquisitive minds", "curiosity" or "fascination"? Hint: It is why scientists become scientists, and why we have evidence for their intelligence, unlike that of a certain talentless fiction writer and smug internet ignoramus.
As far as I see it, he "thinks" that all scientists are super-stereotypical nerds, and when women become scientists, they will spent the time oogling and fantasising about her, leaving them too distracted to do science, but, since women are only attracted to macho jocks like Vox Day, they will never get to sleep with her, unless they "get a life", at which point they stop being nerds and thus can't do any science anymore. Or something like that.
