You suggest that we need to teach girls under 7 how to be more technically minded, specifically so that male nerds of the future will have a greater pool of girlfriends.
Ouch! I think you're being really unfair to twist my words around that way.
I suggest that any community which is predominantly of one gender is emotionally unhealthy. To the extent that they or their surrounding society are reinforcing their one-gender status through differences in early childhood education, they should try to solve the problem.
But this is not to suggest that your duty as women is to, well, "think of England". Good heavens no.
Let's please consider this as getting men and women to go to the same meetings. As I described in my story of the college program with one girl, their solution was to bus us to gender-mixed social events, and not to some less honorable resource.
