Sure they are. There are more men then women who play gulf and more men then women that have jobs where they work outside.

Sure they are. Hows a woman getting struck if they never leave the kitchen ^_^.

@Simone54 is on the right track.
It’s a skewed statistic because of the disproportional number of people being struck (in America anyway) on golf courses, fishing boats, constructions sites, and laboring outdoors. Those are largely men. Lightning isn’t somehow attracted to men more.
