Texas school scraps assignment that had girls 'obey any reasonable request of a male'

I spent 15 years working with engineers in aerospace and every single time there was a problem they didnt understand how to fix, they would assume the other person was stupid.


I wonder if this is due to the environment of aerospace engineering in college, or if people who are naturally like this go into aerospace engineering.

Because yes, this is absolutely my experience with aerospace engineering students in college, but not with, for example, bioengineering or mechanical engineering students.

One of my most vivid memories of college is, pre-major, we were all standing around after an exam talking about a question, and of the 3 of us, 2 of us got the same answer. The one dude out scoffs and says "well thats obviously wrong." He ended up going into aerospace engineering.

What makes it even funnier is that the aerospace engineering students regularly say how much smarter they are than the other engineering students but they usually score near the bottom when we take common classes together like scientific computing or engineering analysis.

They do have very high in-major GPAs though.
