In my case being a woman wasn't as bad as most (but then again I am used to being socially isolated), but having unusual interests partly due to being a woman was. 2 I think is not wrong thing to have, it is grad programs who fail to support these students in future. What you need to do is to identify these students and have a prep year. It is not that damned hard.

In my case 5,6,7,8 and 10 resulted in the happy ending.

the original article to me was more of a declaration of: what do we expect the grad students to do so that good students fail. His vision of what success is (you shall not learn stuff outside your field and be exposed to any life outside grad school to succeed) is pretty much the reason why academics rarely produce anything worthwhile. It is the reason why I decided not to continue my education in USA, if at all. If I wanted to have tunnel vision I would have gotten a job at a company. It pays better.
