RAIN p193 - Mathematics by JocelynSamara RAIN p193 - Mathematics by JocelynSamara

Interesting fact: while this statistic MAY have been true at one time, upon further research, Iíve found it might actually not have much bearing anymore. Regardless of the percentages changing, the statistic itself seems to somehow remain widely accepted due to unfortunate stereotypes.

All the same, Rain interpreting this as validating herself as a woman is kind of funny though. I mean, itís a horrible way of looking at things on her part, but Iíd be lying if I said I wasnít also proud of sucking at math in my high school days for the exact same reason.

You know the funny thing?  I don't suck at math.  Oh, I suck at basic arithmetic, but at the higher functions I'm really quite clever.  And.........  So was almost everyone else in my advanced math classes and....  they were well over three quarters female.  Especially when you included myself.

Even more fascinating I wasn't really even trying that hard.  I wasn't truly capable of trying very hard at anything.  And at least in my case I think my failure at basic arithmetic is just a simple case of boredom.  I COULD do it, but it's too mind-numbing and tedious and my mind would rather let the drones (or a computer) do that simple stuff for me to free me up to do more complex thinking.

So yeah.  At least at MY highschool that stereotype couldn't be Gender Inverted any further.

I think part of that stereotype is that people seem to think women aren't capable of logical thought, that they're pure "intuition"...  What they don't realize is that that intuition is actually just logic followed instinctively.  And when someone bothers to train themselves to harness that ability...  They become capable of some really amazing things.

This is depressing considering how it's nearly my best subject along with Physics, Latin and Geology. ;-;
