I wonder why it's twice as many males. *raises brow* That's an interesting figure.
I'm speculating, but it's not always easy to "come out" as a woman in an intellectual setting. I have had conversations change after the person I was engaging found out I was female. All of a sudden, the intellectual edge was dulled - well, all of a sudden after I got hit on first, and then told, "of course you think that way, you're a girl!" about a different subject later, that had nothing to do with gender! I was defended by lots of men that time, so it didn't sting for very long.
I've set my profile on Facebook to "male" out of the frustration of seeing diet pills and cosmetic surgery marketed to women my age. (I'm 37) I'm very happy with myself, but like most women, I'm not sure that I remain completely unscathed by the message those ads send : "You'll only be miserable without our product!"
