I was actually editing the post you replied to to add on some stuff but I’ll paste it here lol:
Yes, I’m aware that there are studies involving more egalitarian societies having a larger gender divide when barriers to employment based on gender are much less and people more are free to choose their vocations. These do not take into account the thousands of years of social conditioning PRIOR to this.
The world changes and technology advances. Gender roles can adapt similarly. Whether this is a good or bad thing is beyond the scope of this exchange and I don’t want to get cancelled.
Seriously, even a very distinct example can be seen today. Females were generally less suited for manual labour. There’s been a rapid advancement in tech and the increased requirement for skilled coders. Gender isn’t a limitation when it comes to this.
Apply this to even the military. We generally don’t want women in the frontlines but tech has improved to the point where certain vocations from intelligence to drone operation are outsourced to private contractors due to the lack of skilled manpower (at least where I live). Gender isn’t a limitation either and these things should be done inhouse for fucking obvious reasons with proper training for the ones in charge.
