For as long as I've read cosmicvariance, there have been discussions
about why there are not more women in the sciences. This fellow with a
mild Asperger's Syndrome hypothesizes that part of the reason might be due
to that; more men have Asperger's and people with Asperger's Syndrome
naturally gravitate to the sciences.
