Good grief. Several of these in a few days?
"Why are there so few women today in STEM fields" in the West, when it's normal for them to choose those in non-Feminist countries?
Here's an idea:
STOP DOING GENDER STUDIES.
"how does that affect research"?
You think there's male physics and female physics? That carbon will react differently in the presence of ovaries?
"Here's why it's more important than ever to make science relevant to girls"
Because despite ever increasing scholarships for girls only, ever degrading standards for boys' education and a hostile environment for young men, women just don't choose the jobs you think they should?
"I know as time goes on, she'll feel increasingly lonely as a girl who's interested in math and science"
So she can't relate to anyone of a different sex? Jeez. If only there was some sort of network of networks, so that she could chat with people with the right genital type.
If only. One day!
"Women now make up half the national workforce, earn more college and graduate degrees than men".. and still Feminists conclude that women are being persecuted.
Should no male at all be allowed into education - still Feminists will blame every shortcoming in their lives on men.
"many cultural forces continue to stand in the way"
according to your paranoid imagination - you might as well say those evil Jews are holding the good Aryan folk back, you have as much evidence for that.
" girls being steered toward other professions "
BY WHO? WHO IS WHISPERING THESE THINGS INTO THEIR EARS? How is the Patriarchy exerting this mind control at a time when men have less say in families than any other stage in human history? When male teacher is nearly an oxymoron? How does this even work?
"So what difference does it make when there is a lack of women in science? "
Sentence is deliberately constructed with the conclusion as it's premise. It never allows that there might NOT be a lack - that if women choose not to do something of their own free will, that doesn't make their decision WRONG.
" countless women with heart disease have been misdiagnosed in emergency rooms"
Yet far more men die of it - strange how you don't care about that, it's almost as if you saw men as inferiors.
" Women also have suffered disproportionately more side effects from various medications,"
1) Gender is a social construct
2) Gender determines how medications work.
Here's an idea, one you skirt around but never acknowledge.
WOMEN AND MEN ARE DIFFERENT.
It's not surprising they pick different careers given a choice.
MEN DIE AT TEN TIMES THE RATE IN THE WORKFORCE BECAUSE OF THEIR CHOICES - SOMETHING FEMINISTS NEVER HAVE A PROBLEM WITH.
(skips over a bunch of things claimed as fact but unreferenced)
" to harness the creative power of sex and gender analysis to discover new things."
Absolutely nothing has been invented by Gender Studies - it does not use the principles of falsifiability or skeptical peer review. Instead, it promotes "Listen and Believe".
There's nothing - nothing at all - that they have produced, any more than the gurus could produce levitation mats. It is a matter of faith - it is the opposite of science.
"Marie Curie, the Polish-born French physicist, here seated in her laboratory, was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, and the first person to win twice."
And she did all of it without Feminism, and by working with her husband.
MAYBE... FEMINISM... ISN'T HELPING?
" as more women get involved in the sciences—or any field historically dominated by men—the general knowledge in that field tends to expand"
Where is your evidence?
" lots of places"
Really? Show me where it was proven. Because creationists say their stuff was proven "lots of places" too.
"The Internet's "Bro-Coding" Culture"?
How things are in reality:
Ok, NatGeo, now you have not just jumped the shark but the rest of the bloody piscine pool.
THERE ARE NOT TEAMS OF JOCKS CODING AWAY AND PINCHING WOMEN'S BOTTOMS AT THE SAME TIME.
This is idiocy. This... is #SocJus.
And I'm done. I've been buying NatGeo since I were a wee lad. Never again.
Have fun preaching to an ever diminishing audience of cultists.
