    You badly need a lesson in the art-and-essence-of-debate.

    Moving right along ...

    First off not my claim, so I personally have nothing to prove one way or the other. Secondly, one cannot prove a negative save by proving a mutually exclusive positive. Finally, you provide your own source material when you make a claim, and then it is upon us to either show how your source is wrong or at least suspect, or admit to it's validity.

    Did you not notice when I agreed that a large number of women do indeed fail in STEM areas. However, a large number is not all, nor does it instantly prove that the successful women in STEM areas is not a significant number. On top of all that, that are other factors that need to be looked at to determine correlation/causation fallacy is not in play. For example, women in STEM industries tend to get 19% less pay on average. Which then raises the question if woman are not as much failing in the STEM industries, but are not bothering because they are seeking better pay in other industries. Without your source material we have no way of seeing if you are misinterpreting that data, or it's being misrepresented at the source, or anything.

    Also do note that I very early on in this thread called the OP out on this very point. He had nothing to back up his claim that the fact that certain countries were doing better because they were women led.

    "Political and Government experience" is the very reason WHY we need to change the system.

    We need someone running the country who is NOT the product of Uncle Sam's unfair manner of electing presidents to office!

    What is worse is the fact that the Rabid-Right think they have every good-reason to manipulate an antiquated presidential voting system - that they helped to warp ... !

    Seems to me the fallacy is that 'better leadership = better covid.' Thats nonsense. People dont live healthier because someone tells them to, they do it on their own.

    I would go farther and guess that anyone who is dependent on the authorities for their health would be less likely to be healthy regardless of the gender of who is in charge.

    Women drop out of STEM at significantly greater numbers than men. Why they do so is irrelevant. They are encouraged to follow a career path in which they are less likely to succeed than men are. I think this is bad. If they don't like the pay, they oughtn't to have been encouraged to follow that path

    If you want to argue that they should be encouraged to follow a career path in which they are significantly likely than men to succeed, then do so. I can't think of a reason.
