For generations, feminists of various sorts have been hard at work chipping away at cultural norms they see as oppressive. And once upon a time, this was both a courageous and warranted thing to do — we’re not going to sit here and tell you that there was nothing wrong with young women being neglected and taken advantage of for centuries on end.
We will, however, say this: not every cultural tradition was born out of a desire to oppress or harm. Some traditions are born through nature. Even today, no one is compelling young women in the west to disproportionately be drawn to more social jobs and child care professions. Likewise, no one is rounding up a bunch of men and shoving them into steel mills.
These jobs became gendered by themselves. Men are better at (and often enjoy) physical labor, while women tend to be more agreeable and efficient in roles where being social or even caring is important.
Modern feminists want us all to pretend that all distinctions between men and women are either made up or fake. They want to punish people like James Demore, who was fired from Google for publishing a research paper explaining exactly why there are many more men than women in tech jobs.
Well, another feminist myth was just busted recently — by none other than one of the people chiefly responsible for spreading it.
