It is also blatantly obvious that most of those propensities are relatively strongly gender-correlated. Does that mean that all girls like dolls better than trucks? Absolutely not. Does it mean that if you were betting on two kids picked at random from respective populations of girls and boys, that the girl is awful likely to like the dolls more than the boy does? Hell yeah.
Yes...sounds just like Aretae to take 2 paragraphs to say girls are different than boys. Well...girls are different than boys statistically, which means that on most characteristically gendered traits, the averages are different, but some boys are less boyish on some axis than some girls are...and vice versa.
I'm becoming more and more convinced that Feminism has a major (50%?more?) strain which is comprised entirely of explaining that girls shouldn't be girls...and that they should be boys instead. Now there's another strand that goes about explaining that girls are better than boys...and a third that says girls can't be boys, so we need to change the rules for them...and a 4th that says: there should be no rules specifying that the genders must be treated differently. ...but I'm not interested in those strains right now. I'm interested in the strain of feminism that says: girls should be boys. Be self-reliant and aggressive, sleep with whomever makes you horny, put career first, etc. Let's say....I'm suspicious of at least 3 of the strands listed above...and I'm currently finding this "be a boy" strain to be the most pernicious.
