Do studies evidence that more and more males fail at math and science? Can this have anything to do with more and more females excelling in these subjects? After all, one cannot excel without another failing to do so. What do the methodologies involved in these studies contribute to their outcomes? What ulterior agendas do some researchers reveal by initiating tax-funded studies about de-genderizing knowledge? When can we expect a female Einstein (or another male one, given current trends in discounting masculine aptitude in math)?
