From the comments on this thread in general it seems like a lot of us are more on the lurker side. Cultural conditioning that girls don't speak up as much?

Very likely, combined with, honestly, men often close ranks when a woman is "too opinionated". I don't think they do it consciously, but it does happen.

I am considering writing a blog post related to your inquiry. I have been intentionally not commenting on that in this thread and would prefer to leave it be for now.
