Phew! Puckett, I need to reel you in a little bit here. Let's be honest, most of your examples are outliers. They aren't the norm. Serious female gamers? Not a norm. Female BJJ practitioners? Not a norm. Girls are just into different things. Your little girl isn't equal to boys in many ways, but it works the opposite way around too. In fact, based on the conversations we have had, you have a hell of an awesome daughter and she is probably better at A LOT of things than boys her age and older.
Here is the thing, everyone doesn't need to be equal in order for society to move forward. Adversity and inequality in various forms are what makes people and nations strong. It is what the United States of America was founded on. It is what made us, each of us, who we are. I'm not saying I am for oppression, racism or anything like that, but if things were easy and fair people would have no aspirations. No reason to be better than who they are. Mediocrity would abound and we would just sit in a complacent rut.
It is normal for men to "be men" and women to "be women". People come to accept and reject certain societal norms as time goes by. Right now women gamers are a not a norm.
Things are getting better in some respects and worse in others. I think that most of America's youth today are spoiled, entitled brats because everything has to be fair and everyone has to be a winner. F that. That mentality is going to be our downfall. Kids need to lose and win. It makes them normal, productive adults.
Agree 110% that and pc bullflop will be the death of us. people should have equal oppurtunites and all be treated fairly. but we all not all equal in anything and if we were life would suck pretty bad in my opinion. And thats not saying color or gender make us not equal what makes us that way is that we are all diferent
