And notice how not a single feminist bitching about lack of women in STEM actually took STEM. They don't care about becoming engineers. They just want to *look* and *feel* like engineers, and be *given* the same amount of money that engineers *make*.
You're right! He's the only one getting that kind of money. Locally, I see a lot of guys with MSW's but maybe that's my environment. I don't think it is a foregone conclusion that you have to go into debt, but even if that is the case, I wouldn't determine my profession based on gender-based employability. Especially so in the case of any job that whose principle employer is some level of government - a change in politics can thoroughly screw you over. Unfortunately, I don't think there is the same opportunity for gender based employment for men going into traditionally female fields, as there is for females going into 'male' fields - but as i said before that could just be the bias of my local environment.
These jobs may be thankless and pay shit, but a man fresh out of nursing school or with their Masters in early education or MSW will get more attn from employers mostly because they are a man. Compare that with with the engineering and STEM fields which is the opposite. The glut of men in the STEM fields make women more desirable by employers. You're gonna go into debt either way, so you might as well go into debt getting a degree that will get you work right away.
