If Men Wrote This, It Would Be Sexist Prejudice

1/5/18 Campus Reform:
Together, Parson and Ozaki interviewed eight female students majoring in math or physics to learn more about why women struggle in STEM. From their interviews, the professors learned that many women feel pressure to conform to so-called “masculine” norms.
According to the professors, these masculine norms include “asking good questions,” “capacity for abstract thought and rational thought processes,” “motivation,” the expectation that students would be “independent” thinkers, and a relatively low fear of failure.

Are these women willing to live in a building they designed? Are they willing to go to jail if they build a feminine bridge and it collapses, killing people?

I recognize heteronormative oppression when I see it.

Did the learned professors ask the ladies if they knew how to make a sammich? I'll bet none of them felt the pressure to conform to that feminine norm!
