Is this a gender stereotype, that females look for role models to influence them into particular activities, males don’t? Because there were never glamorous computer programmers or software geeks on TV or in the magazines or books I read when young (1970s and earlier), there were just the occasional computers themselves, and I was filled with curiosity as to how they worked—of all the technology I was exposed to, they seemed the most magical.
Is that not the kind of thing a girl would do?
