"We can't, can't, just can't, can't, can't,

have all the good high-paying jobs going to stem mens. The wyms must have their fair share. So it must be a full-spectrum effort: encourage the wyms, suppress the mens, if that's what it takes.
What makes it hard, though is stem is risk and fear, venturing into the dark murk of the unknown. Engineers are paid to design and build something new. All the easy things have been done. Anything new is really new, surrounded by a vast plain of failure and heartbreak. Sci, tech, and math are an endless and relentless hunt for the new and not-previously known, with mostly failure and a few unfairly-distributed successes. I've seen it all my life, in every human endeavor. Mens are the risk-taking pioneers. Wyms are the followers. There are fraidy-cat mens and bold-ass wyms, but the exceptions prove the rule."

Your Say

Also, scientific, mathematic, computer, and engineering fields stubbornly refuse to bow to relativism and political correctness. That damn 2+2 keeps equaling 4 no matter what culture you come from. More women involved, they hope, means more flexibility and less of that cruel masculine focus on reason and objective logic.

Just a suspicion on my part.

Huh? But if one plus one can make five children, what's the rule?
Is it after the 2nd child use contraception?
Do liberated women, strict feminists, no longer supine, say,"if you wouldn't focus we wouldn't need contraception"?
