Really. No one talks about biology as predetermining of gendered behavior? It’s the DOMINANT NARRATIVE. It’s the excuse by which men seek to get a pass on every aggressive urge we have. It’s the excuse by which we seek to box women into domesticity. It’s the oldest story on the books.

Here’s the simple truth. Not all women nurture. Not all men are aggressive. We are all utterly different and gender in no way universally determines our predispositions as stereotypically “masculine” or “feminine” beyond the degree to which we all end up a little crazier because of the last century stereotypes that continue to be forced on us.
