OK Milo point taken  :) ... what did you mean by generalization?  :)

What I mean is that I have noticed a pattern or prevalence via my own experience, and/or communicating with others who have noticed it.

... and perhaps in my experience, men are more prone to pedantry than women. 

True. But I don't see that as a drawback. Men tend to gravitate toward empirical stuff. Baseball statistics, philosophy, abstract reasoning, etc. Hell, I do it myself. I can sit and talk about economics, and corporate shit for hours on end without tiring of it.

Um, yeah, I don't see pedantry as a problem either.  I think men are more famous for being pedantric, but that's not something that's a strictly male trait, IMO.  I used to work for a law-firm, we had women lawyers.  I have a background in the hard sciences, which many women also share.  Teaching is an occupation dominated by women.  Women are quite capable and quite commonly as absorbed by following the rules, being obsessed with detail and book learning as any man.
