Because sexism is easier for reminders rather than room numbers.

Congrats on giving into stereotypes.

Twilight Zone as in "Imagine if you will", or Twilight zone as in "OMG EDWARD!"?

*giggles* I remember being able to tell whether I was in the right room by if there were more than a few guys in there or not - more than 2? Definitely not my class. That's funny to see it in reverse here. Though I was in two health degrees mind you (Nursing, then Health Promotion) so I suppose that makes sense :D

Stereotypes or not, it's the truth in all of my classes as well.

When I was going to school(for a diploma as a technologist), after I think it was the first semester, there was 1 girl in each year.

It would be sexist to suggest that the lack of women in engineering was right or correct.

My course had 89 students in it (B.Eng(Mechatronics)). ONE of them was a girl. Most of the other engineering courses at Curtin were 90%+ men. My sister started Fashion and Textile designs at the same institution (she found it a fairly vapid course of study); I believe that she never had a class with a guy in it.

Acknowledging this is NOT sexist. Insisting it is somehow morally correct would be. Strangely enough, Jam never did that.

Throwing around the terms you're using is inflammatory and offensive. Don't do it.

It's not sexist it's just that more guys tend to choose engineering compared to girls. I guess you'd be saying that I'm racist if I mess up some people's names but not the names of the few darker skinned people I know.

A friend of mine is Astrophysics at Colgate, and the same thing happens to her. Though she's first year, so there is one other girl in most of her physics classes.

True story: I entered a physics 2 class one time and noticed a lot of females. My first thought was "Oh god, I must be in the wrong class". Then I said to myself "Self, that is sexist of you to assume girls would not be in a physics 2 class". 3 weeks later I was talking to a friend about the incident... I found out I was in the wrong class after all for the past three weeks... sexism, it's better than playing catch up?

Just to clarify, I was in trig based physics 2 when I should have been in cal based physics 2

Okay, I registered just to respond to this comic. I was in a French course last quarter. For all of you engineers, upper-division French courses in America tend to consist of 30 girls and the one guy from France who is too lazy to get a major in something he doesn't already know. Now, for some reason, the registar assigned some sort of uberhard engineering class in the same room at the same time.

While sitting for fifteen minutes before my professor came, we had 5 male students come in, sit down, look around questionably, and leave. Then, the engineering professor walked in, looked at the dozen girls sitting in front of him, and said "This can't be an engineering class". After he left, I laughed so hard that I had to leave the room.

Smart girls are sexy!

Actually, to be specific, sexy girls who are smart are then even more sexy. That doesn't quite roll off the tongue, though.

My brother is doing a BA in Tourism Management and is one of 2 guys doing the course. Over all 4 years (they have a year in the industry)he and this other lad are the only ones.

Same with comp sci, but oddly and nicely, at my college there were more girls than expected sometimes :)

This is true even in high school!

Somehow, us females are outnumbereed in both my physics and my calc classes. Never mind that the smartest students in our year are females...

It is very true, after doing a Video Games Development course and a Art Foundation in the past 3 years my main way to tell whether or not I was meant to be in a room was to do a quick sex count.

Video Games Development - mostly Guys

Art Foundation - Mostly Girls

Although there was many a time I wish there were more girls in Games Dev, solely to limit the sheer competitiveness a lot of the guys got up to, so that they could be the alpha male -_-

I had a moment like that, in fashion most of my classes are girls but one class was over half guys, and the majority of those were straight... that was a fun class..

In my entire time in college as a Computer Science major, in classrooms that generally had 25-40 people in them, on average there were 1 to 2 females in the class. Often times none at all, sometimes up to 3 or 4 (rarely). They tended to band together in class (usually sitting with their backs against a wall in the corner) and also group together for project -- just to avoid the pathetic cheeto encrusted losers constantly hitting on the "huh huh, nurr, girl" in the class.

Luckily, things are changing. My sisters will be entering college starting next year, and they are both engineering/computer science bound -- as are their female friends. The times, they are a-changin' =)
