So. STEM courses are less popular with woment than men, therefore
STEM courses are sexcist and must be made "easier" for women.

How nice. How very nicely PC. What a wonderful way to advance
the sciences.

As ever, cut out the reporting biases and go to the original https://www.nber.org/papers/w26556

"Restrictions on grading policies that equalize average grades across classes helps to close the STEM gender gap as well as increasing overall enrollment in STEM classes."

Which isn't making classes easier for anyone.

Note, it's a US study of US education systems.
