Or are the women who have to deal with statements like that on an everyday basis from people who aren't trying to pitch a verbal fight but who believe they are speaking the Gods' honest truth (and yes, the placement of that apostrophe is fully intentional). That's a thought?

Yeah, being a humorless twit is an effective way to deal with prejudice.

Ah, we don't share your humor, therefore, we have no humor. Brilliant.

Allow me to prove you wrong.

A molecule walks into a bar. He looks at his friend and says, "You know, I think I dropped an electron". His friend says, "Are you sure?" He says, "Yeah, I'm positive."

:P

^ Oh, INDEED. Barbie claims that math class is tough, and yet she managed to become a doctor, surgeon, dentist, AND astronaut. You know, alongside a smattering (ie. dozens) of other side jobs.

Come on, Barbz. You're not fooling anyone.

I am one of only 2 females in my program at university, its a very math and science heavy program ( geographical bio sciences). I'm proud of my abilites and don't think I'm any worse then the guys at the math aspect. I got one of the top marks in my class. Math " smarts" are effort and study based!! There is no math Gene!!!!

Math Scores Show No Gap for Girls, Study Finds
The New York Times
By TAMAR LEWIN
Published: July 25, 2008
www.nytimes.com . . .

Three years after the president of Harvard, Lawrence H. Summers, got into trouble for questioning women’s “intrinsic aptitude” for science and engineering — and 16 years after the talking Barbie doll proclaimed that “math class is tough” — a study paid for by the National Science Foundation has found that girls perform as well as boys on standardized math tests.

Although boys in high school performed better than girls in math 20 years ago, the researchers found, that is no longer the case. The reason, they said, is simple: Girls used to take fewer advanced math courses than boys, but now they are taking just as many.

“Now that enrollment in advanced math courses is equalized, we don’t see gender differences in test performance,” said Marcia C. Linn of the University of California, Berkeley, a co-author of the study. “But people are surprised by these findings, which suggests to me that the stereotypes are still there.”

The findings, reported in the July 25 issue of Science magazine, are based on math scores from seven million students in 10 states, tested in accordance with the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

The researchers looked at the average of the test scores of all students, the performance of the most gifted children and the ability to solve complex math problems. They found, in every category, that girls did as well as boys. (To their dismay, the researchers found that the tests in the 10 states did not include a single question requiring complex problem-solving, forcing them to use a national assessment test for that portion of their research.)

Janet Hyde, a professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, who led the study, said the persistent stereotypes about girls and math had taken a toll.

“The stereotype that boys do better at math is still held widely by teachers and parents,” Dr. Hyde said. “And teachers and parents guide girls, giving them advice about what courses to take, what careers to pursue. I still hear anecdotes about guidance counselors steering girls away from engineering, telling them they won’t be able to do the math.”

Girls are still underrepresented in high school physics classes and, as noted by Dr. Summers, who resigned in 2006, in the highest levels of physics, chemistry and engineering, which require advanced math skills.

The study also analyzed the gender gap on the math section of the SAT. Rather than proving boys’ superior talent for math, the study found, the difference is probably attributable to a skewed pool of test takers. The SAT is taken primarily by seniors bound for college, and since more girls than boys go to college, about 100,000 more girls than boys take the test, including lower-achieving girls who bring down the girls’ average score.

On the ACT, another college entrance test, the study said, the gender gap in math scores disappeared in Colorado and Illinois after the states began requiring all students to take the test.

How do you know it's time to get a new dishwasher?
When the old one starts to tell you to "do your share".


Why don't women wear watches?
They don't need one-- there's a clock on the stove.


I am a woman. I can't do math. I'll admit it. And I'm okay with it.


One last joke before I leave.
