Are boys naturally more interested in STEM? Are girls more naturally interested in everything else?
If those are true for some biological reason, then great, we're right on track. But if it isn't, maybe we need to stop pushing each gender in society's preferred direction.
As a boy, I was much more interested in STEM. I played with legos building stuff, loved remote control cars, and in general taking things apart to figure out how they worked and put them back together. I wasn't really too interested in reading or art type things, and if I drew something it was usually an airplane, and when forced to do creative writing would come up with stories about dinosaurs or ones that went into great detail about building things.
I can't speak for other boys or girls, only myself. If you want to claim that my parents steered me in that direction, then it's doubtful since my dad steered me towards sports, and my mom and older sister steered me more towards artistic things.
I didn't really know or associate with any girls that I remember when I was young since they weren't interested in legos or cars or taking things apart. The boys I associated with were interested in legos, cars, taking things apart, or sports.
