Though the ratio in my corporate world was skewed.... just like PPOT...the same goes for most of the women there and here...

I have a wife, four daughters and I am the only male in the staff at work.

I have no opinions.

On a related note: My son started college this year (engineering) and I went back to school for nursing. I am currently in microbiology and chemistry classes and there is 1 male in each class. My son says his classes(all upper sciences, maths, and engineering courses, no humanities) are 2:1 girls to boys in all his classes.

I am curious if this is the norm at most schools. We are at 2 different schools and are seeing this. I wonder where the males are and what they are studying. I would have thought there would be more balance in these classes.

I know this is becoming or has become the norm in business school. My undergrad is accounting and women going into that field now outnumber men.

At least some of the men are apparently at home in their parent's basement watching videos about how the women in their life have screwed them over.

I worked in the same field for 37 years and never met or saw a female co-worker or supervisor.

Electrical engineer / electronics.

Big companies / small companies.

I'll bet it never happens.

Many men are passing on a degree that is no longer a differentiator because everyone has one. (and the associated college debt) and learning trades instead.

So again....we see more examples in this thread; Hospital 80% women, colleges women outnumber men 2:1. The last time you had your teeth cleaned was the Dental hygienist male or female? I can go on and on but women are NOT being oppressed in 2019. The only examples I ever get will be broad un-quantifiable ideas such as: "We've never had a female president so that means were oppressing women" or "there are fewer female CEO's of fortune 500 companies because of oppression" but the reality is there are no as in ZERO laws in place holding women back. There are fewer female CEO's for the same reason there are fewer male nurses or the elusive male dental hygienist. They simply choose different career paths and this helps explain the myth of the gender pay gap. The social gender disparities that once existed have long been done away with by first wave feminism, 2nd and 3rd wave feminism is an extreme view that is actually pushing for superiority and not equality, because the bar of equality has been met for quite some time. This is why most women of 2019 do not identify as feminists.
