5. I agree about socialization.

And the change in male caregiving as well.

Just because we have certain gender-related tendencies does not mean they have to rule us. And it certainly does not justify a male-dominated society.

For example, I tend to think of Trumpites as people who allow "primitive" emotions to rule them (sexism, aggression, tribalism or racism, protectionism, as well as fear and rage), as opposed to the rest of us who recognize these tendencies, but rise above them to be thoughtful and measured and fair-minded in our thoughts and deeds.

But it's a never ending argument - where modern humans lie on the spectrum of nature vs nurture - and one that I have no interest in 'winning.'

Instead I appreciate the respectful exchange of ideas on a topic that I find really interesting.
