Please people key me in. Is it just a Jordanian phenomenon, or is it that females, in a nutshell, are treated better, given more attention, and receive higher evaluation than their poor colleagues who are cursed with the XY chromosome combo. At first I'm tell myself not to take anything away from my female colleauges' accomplishments, but more and more it shouts in my face. I've noticed that they (the girls) get more eye contact when the professor is explaining something. They can make they same mistake their male colleague might, but her mistake will be kindly corrected while the male will be harshly berated. I dunno, it just been buggin the heck out of me, and it's more prominent with certain professors and in certain specialties than others.
