It’s to be expected on a level of Duh that forcing women to directly engage in competition with men in the workforce would produce some social changes.
At the very least, modern workers weigh more and age faster (cortisol).
This applies to both sexes. Perhaps women were the fairer sex because the home environment is quieter (cortisol can be triggered by loud noise, although a home can be equally or more busy depending on the industry compared).
The structure rewards masculinity at work. Women need to be. However, even this isn’t enough.
If you’re doing the same work, you should be paid the same. Basic contract law, nothing to do with sex.
Social masculinity is often contextual. As in, plenty of stern women at work soften up in their personal lives. Men compartmentalize too, dating back to the clinical detachment of doctors and surgeons. This is healthy.
I’ve found kindness is frequently punished as we go by an American system (loud, annoying, rude).
There is some evidence for a masculinity wage gap but yes, also a gender/sex-based one.
However, it does varies by industry, like the feminists refuse to accept.
According to the researchers, the same goes for dominant men versus their more conciliatory male counterparts — but even dominant women earn far less than all of their male colleagues, dominant or otherwise.
