This past weekend, unsold copies of the “weekend” edition of USA Today lamented the existence of what it called “Testosterone Valley,” where males dominated the computer and software-creation business. Where were all the women? Surely this must be “evidence” that women are shunted out or “discouraged” from participating. It is part the alleged “confidence gap.”
Frankly, I don’t think there is any shortage of “confidence” displayed by the female of the species. Far from it. Female students form a numerical majority in colleges and universities, and this only seems to be growing. They earn more degrees than men. We are told by the gender activists and the media that women are “smarter” than men, and that they are just as good or better in mathematics. So, if this is true, there should be no real barrier of women muscling in on so-called “male preserves” like the STEM fields; all they have to do to change the alleged “cultural barrier” is simply enter those fields of study. Simple as that. No excuses necessary.
