    For the same reason physics textbooks assume their readers are male?

    I can answer this question easily. A physicits is a :

    i) a crazy guy (like Marlon)

    ii) a lunatic sciencist who spends all day concerned with impossible theories, equations and concepts (like Marlon).

    iii) a guy who, got bored of such businesses, spends the rest of the day writting here (like Marlon).

    iv) a savant, who has thousands of strange books in his personal library, and whom girls are afraid of being around (like Marlon). This last evidence is weaker, if the photograph you shown some time ago was true (she was very pretty).

    v) but after all, a kind guy and a good boy (like Marlon).
