That. All that.


Also Revelino, you've hit on something I've not considered RE the "intimidated by a strong woman" trope. What if a potential suitor is not a particularly aggressive or assertive man? What if the man in a relationship is - brace yourself - the vulnerable party. IE, what if someone is intimidated by a strong women, because they themselves are weak?

First off, that's exactly the sort of man they accuse duh patriarchy of oppressing, and thus one the awokened woman should empathize with (I know, I know. Bear with me on this.). If a woman is intimidated by a man, it is incumbent on said man to change his behaviors to create a safe space for the woman. Yet - again, sit down if standing - feminists brag about being intimidating to the men in their lives. The very same men who are most vulnerable and who ostensibly reject patriarchy. It's a tough call if this is merely projection or simple viciousness, or both.

It's a very broken religion but it is still fascinating to explore the numerous hypocrisies within hypocrisies of feminism. Like an Inception of childish neuroticism.

I've mentioned this before; my class of 1996 chemical engineering was about 35% female, which was the average for a decade or two. After twenty-five years of aggressively marketing engineering to high school girls, giving them no-effort scholarships and proividing all kinds of women-only support and mentoring programs, the percentage of women in engineering has dropped by about 30% (in terms of absolute numbers; it's about 20-25% in chem eng now).

That's not scale numbers, that's still a proportion. Is the overall class size still the same? It could be from the information you've presented that more people are studying chem eng, but all of the increase is in men. If we assume a temporally homogenous population from which to select (a prodigious assumption, but let's go with it ad arguendum) that could mean all the women both interested in and capable of studying the subject already were…
