Great: One Third of the Women in STEM Studies Now Leaving Those Fields to Pursue Courses in... Social Justice Warrioring

Apparently not content with merely being cartoonish, extremist feminists now want to make the infamous cartoon about them real AF.

I'm sure these women's choices to leave the high-paying fields of engineering and science for softer studies in gender equality is all the fault of The Patriarchy.

A study found that one third of the women in STEM fields tracked changed majors to either a "helping field" or one about social justice.

I don't mind the helping fields at all -- they're critical. But I would point out that when people explain that the reason there are more men in engineering and more women in nursing is that men are more interesting in things and women are more interested in people, the intersectional feminists claim that's the Patriarchal Nazis saying that, and it's a White Man's Lie.

And yet... here we are.

The other women who dropped out of STEM went into the garbage fields of wasting Daddy's money to show Daddy that you don't want any part of him or his Patriarchy, except the part about being supported with no expectation of ever being able to pay back the loans he co-guaranteed.

Led by Colorado School of Mines professor Greg Rulifson, the study tracked 34 freshmen engineering majors over the course of four years to explore what makes students, especially women, abandon engineering in lieu of other fields.

Of the 21 female students interviewed, fully one-third left engineering by their junior year. Rulifson and his co-author Angela Bielefeldt identified one factor common to all female students who left: the desire to "help society/other people," or "social responsibility."

The "social responsibility" definition includes "care for the marginalized and disadvantaged," "environmental conservation," and "empathy," the professors noted.

Empathy is a real Growth Field. Women working in that field can make upwards of 79 cents on each dollar that Male Empathy Workers make.

Of the 21 female students, 14 expressed a strong dedication to social responsibility. Half of those students eventually switched majors upon realizing they wanted to pursue fields they felt had more to do with helping people.
