I've had male teachers with masculine dispositions discipline me in some form for similar bullshit.

This is kind of like the men's version of the gender pay gap myth.

Girls do outnumber boys at university now and that seems to be continuing to increase. I think, in England at least, that the fee system may be part of the problem.

I can't think of any reason but simple probability. Numbers don't need to line up perfectly everywhere for there to be equal rights and opportunities.

I don't think the problem of poor structuring is a result of a majority of teachers being female (a factor that couldn't be changed any more than the lack of females in STEM mind you) as much as it's an administrative and perhaps even an educative initative (one put in place by universities that educate the educators so to speak) put in place for other teachers to follow. For some reason the (American, though this problem could extend to other countries) academic system in public schools follows a lot of quirky initatives that are more or less experiments that exaggerate any positive result. An example being how my former high school has isolated the most troublesome students but rewards them gratuitously for even the slightest notion to performing expected work.

I feel like the biggest problem with teachers like the one you mention is a poor system in dealing with them; it's either too strong, or too weak. A new teacher for instance will be under constant scrutiny. Reasonably so, however it's the way they measure the scrutiny that's problematic; putting excessive value in how "good" the students to via the grades that the very same teacher assigns. Should they have a bundle of problematic kids or simply improper funding to acquiring better presentation equipment to convey to students all forms of educative media beyond the chalk/white board. As a result, they might be forced to fork over higher grades to guarantee they'll have a job next year.
On the other hand, you've got teachers who are locked into the system due to the "tenure" system - one of the few incentives that can't be properly removed due to most areas of this being implemented having poor funding for teacher salary, making it one of the rare "perks" for a teacher to have. However, if trading off a raise in salary to remove tenure and increase the true efficiency via consistent judgment is necessary, than so be it.

And what would you think if someone got a poor grade for a silly reason. Then said they had a suspicion that it was because they were black and the teacher was white?

Are you sure you aren't suffering from persecutory delusions?

Yeah, I've had that experience with some grumpy feminists in all levels of school.
Its annoying, but not really important.
Though since getting into a STEM course, I've basically never had one.

That's probably because the teachers are all men.
