2D8 Guns and Dolls

Guns and Dolls

This is an article from Newsweek, an American progressive magazine. It was released in 1990. The headline is Guns and Dolls.

There are three parts, which match the three paragraphs. The first paragraph is about Rebecca. She was 3. She lived in a politically correct family, but when she played with dolls, the girl doll did all the chores. This implies that women are genetically meant to do the chores.

The second part is about George. He was 4 years old, in a traditional family. He never saw a gun, but still played with a stick, which he called a “shooter”. This implies that “boys will be boys”. Once again, the difference between boys and girls seems to be genetical.

The last paragraph is about scientific experiments. Men in general have a bigger brain. That was supposed to prove that they were more intelligent than women. But a (she)student showed that some college girls had a bigger brain than some famous professors. So, the idea that the difference is biological is false/wrong/preposterous.


Nature imposes pregnancy and breast-feeding to women. That means they are more sedentary. This means they are determined to stay home while men hunt.
