I don't think this issue really has anything to do with being male or female. It is more about entering a culture that you may not like. I have seen many male employees also that don't like to work in the "geeky" departments because they're not interested in the same things...or at least work is not their entire life. Naturally, those that do like "the tape drives" will all hang out together and share info and become better at their jobs so if you don't fit in, you won't be able to keep up with everything. That doesn't have much to do with the sex of those people. Hell, most of them don't even have sex! :)
