The government’s attempts to push water uphill with a stick continue after decades of failure, as we see in this piece from the BBC. Girls’ choices are forever being spun into a problem to be solved, as a reflection of ‘gender bias’. Fields being dominated by women is NEVER a problem to be solved, although 60% of university students are women, four out of seven unemployed people are men, unemployment is known to be a high risk factor for suicide in men (but not women) and suicide is the #1 cause of death of young men. The state is killing men, although 72% of the taxes which finance the state are paid by men.
The reluctance of young women to enter certain fields e.g. engineering is so strong that the taxpayer has to bribe women to study them. In the latest edition of New Scientist, Brunel University has an advert offering 40 engineering scholarships for women from the UK and EU, which will cover both tuition fees and a £15,000 p.a. ‘living allowance’.
