Study: Women Now Leaving STEM Fields to Pursue ‘Social Justice’ Degrees

Two engineering professors have published the results of a new study that sheds light on why so few women graduate college with a STEM degree.

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.

Here and I thought it was because "Math is hard n' stuff..."

2/3rds retention rate in engineering is actually pretty damn good. The numbers I've seen are usually around half; and it has nothing to do with SJW or anything.
It's "pea-can", man.

This is 100% correct.

However the males who wash out do not tend to switch to a "social justice" major, but rather quit school and get a job.

At least that is my impression.

The statistics I have heard was about half and half for switching vs dropping out. Which had been what I anecdotally observed. Especially in comp sci.

Also, I take big issue with conflating the connotation of "social justice" with the desire to want to make a positive impact as a factor for a field somebody picks.

Interesting then, if women are doing better than you would expect.
But apparently that is not good enough. SO we have to change things so they can do even better.
...
That study urged engineering departments to infuse a “feminist care of ethics” into their curricula to help retain women. By doing that, engineering students would be “provided with opportunities to define, address, and apply social responsibility continuously.”

But if they still have to take math and stuff, how will this help?

It's to do with destroying the system, not helping women.

Revenge for the way the Cold War turned out.

Revenge on the human race for not being compatible with socialism.

Rule AND ruin.

The "White Guilt Theory" reminds me rather a lot of the "War on Christmas".
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

The Telegraph wrote:Australian flight crews told to 'minimise manterruptions' and avoid saying country was 'settled' by British

Australian airline Qantas was accused of operating a “corporate thought police” after advising staff to avoid using terms such as husband, wife, mum and dad - and to describe the arrival of the British in the late 1700s as an invasion or occupation rather than a settlement.

In an information pack sent to staff as part of the airline’s Spirit of Inclusion month, employees were provided with a list of potentially offensive terms and were told to “minimise manterruptions”, in which men at the workplace “interrupt and speak over women”.

“Always using the terms ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ can reinforce the idea that people are always in heterosexual relationships,” the pack says.

“In the same way, always referring to ‘mum and dad’ can make many families feel excluded — both same-sex couples and single-parent families… Words like ‘love’, ‘honey’ or ‘darling’, even when used as terms of endearment, often offend. In the workplace, it is best to avoid these sorts of words.”

Seeking to combat “unconscious bias”, the pack said language was often used to reinforce stereotypes, noting that terms such as “abrasive” and “bubbly” are rarely used to describe men.

This is just the latest in a running conflict between self so called Drag Queens and Real Trans-Women TM.

The Drag Queens are men playing women, see? Everyone agrees about that part.

Whereas the Real Trans-Women TM are ...

1) ... really really really women.
2) ... mentally ill men who think they are women.

And furthermore Drag Queens are also ...

1) ... gay men just having a harmless bit of fun.
2) ... cultural appropriators (or something equally evil) of Real Trans-Women TM.

That's probably because trans/drag aren't gay in the same way. They are attracted to women's bodies, obviously.
