  1. Introspective on first look but rather incomplete on more thought. There are two squared possibilities in total and s/he (the creator of the strip) omitted the other two (on purpose?).

    For the other two possibilities, replace maths by humanities and add some dumb statement, with a girl commenting on girl ‘you suck …’ and girl commenting on boy ‘boys suck…’

    Gender stereotyping doesn’t work only one way.

    ps1: The reason I replaced maths by humanities is because gender ratio is generally skewed in opposite way there . A simple minded reasoning suggests that if the percentage of ‘stereotypers’ is same in both genders (reasonable approximation to me), the number of incidents of stereotyping would be against the gender who is in minority.

    ps2: Perhaps the people with chalk in the strip were just plain lazy and didn’t specify that its a definite integral with limits zero to three pi to the power one-third !
