I’m not a misandrist but, it’s not women’s fault that men aren’t successful in female-dominated careers. They’ve chosen to be lumberjacks, builders and dustbin-men for years so they can’t blame us that they find it hard to pursue a career in childcare.
I get that this is supposed to make the argument sound ridiculous because it’s talking about men instead of women, but it actually ends up turning on itself because it’s attacking the wrong argument in the first place.
There are actual reasons why men and women have historically (and still do, because- shocker!- our ancestors actually did know what they were talking about when it came to economic, biological, and social necessities) gravitated towards different spheres of work. That isn’t to say that no man has ever pursued a job in a more typically feminine sphere or vice versa, but, and I cannot stress this strongly enough or often enough, there is usually a really good reason for why things are the way they are.
Then I guess those evolutionary roles didn’t plop into earlier then 100 years ago because back then, female lumberjacks, carriers, garbage collectors etc. were pretty damn common. Washing was a mostly female, very intense heavy-duty work.
And before the industrial revolution women did the same manufacturing jobs and homecare jobs as men did because there was no out-of-home workplace and no sensible labour division since households were paid after the income.
Also, women did heavy field-work, just today I read a medieval snippet about a ploughing woman…
No, evo psych is not what you think it is and people like you make it looking like complete bullshit. (Which is also untrue. It doesn’t deal exclusively with sex and gender and there’s much more to the human psyche and evolution than that. But it tells you something about humans that they latch onto this aspect almost exclusively…)
