Congratulations to Janelle Schlossberger and Amanda Harinoff, seniors at John F. Kennedy High School in Plainview, N.Y., who won the team grand prize in the Seimens Math and Science Competition.
There personal effort to excel should be recognized and lauded.
But the socialist engineering and spin behind this particular story is a bit nauseating.
First of all, have a look at the headline published for this story:
Girls Dominate the Siemens Competition
Yay! It's another celebration for the feminists! Girls DOMINATE!
Than we read the actual comments of the winners themselves:
"Women lag far behind men in professional math, science, and computer fields, an issue that became the subject of renewed debate in 2005 when then Harvard President Lawrence Summers suggested the lack of top female scientists may stem in part from biological differences between men and women. Jain vehemently disagrees, but acknowledges with some annoyance that "the guy-to-girl ratio in math and science competitions is absolutely ridiculous. It's usually seven or eight guys to one girl." The results of this year's Siemens Competition may signify that more girls are "finally stepping up to the plate and are more than capable," Jain says. "And I'm proud to be a part of that."
The issue was NEVER "are women capable." This was the gist of Lawrence Summers point...it was not "women are biologically incapable" but that gender differences mean women are A LOT LESS LIKELY to be INTERESTED in pursuing math and science careers!!!
And that still holds true!
If these girls had not been raised by two highly-educated scientists to begin with (as the article points out), chances are they would be much more interested in the typical interests of the average American Teenage girl - social networking, dating, celebrity worship, fashion etc.
Just because they are the exception to the rule does not mean the rule is wrong!
Nevertheless, the statistics are in, and the results are undeniable: the further feminization of the school systems, and as more and more boys drop out of the educational system, the more we really will see females "Dominate" every aspect of the educational fields.
They have already surpassed males in attendance and graduation at college.
So when will the feminists finally look at the numbers and realize they "achieved equality?"
Because it never was about equality. It has always been the agenda to promote female supremacy.
