Let's say I concede your point that there are distinct, statistically significant innate preferences for certain types of work based on gender, along with assuming all sorts of positive and negative stereotypes about men and women and their relationship to work, satisfaction and happiness.Let women be women and concentrate on woman stuffs, like caring for kids, raising them instead of having strangers do it. Feminism sold them on some bullshit, didnt it?
Now let's go back and engage in my thought experiment:
Let's imagine a near-future society where automation has eliminated 50% of the necessary low skill and middle skill labor, and 20% of the high skill labor.
- It has also disproportionately eliminated more of the low skill and middle skill labor that men found satisfaction in, while there still remains a large chunk of low and middle skill labor that women find satisfaction in, from child rearing and education, to social-skill oriented jobs.
- I'll even concede, for the purposes of this thought experiment, that many of the remaining highest skill-tier jobs are things that men both find more satisfaction in and are better at (men aren't higher IQ on average, actually slightly lower on average, but have a wider IQ distribution) than women.
- Let's also assume that men have a higher likelihood/capacity than women to engage in destructive/violent/socially disruptive behavior when not at least partially occupied with satisfactory productive labor, and that men derive a larger portion of their overall satisfaction with life from engaging in productive labor.
Also keep in mind that this process is 100% reversible, in fact, would automatically tend back to a natural distribution simply by ceasing the selection process, should circumstances arise where there was an increase in demand for labor that men found engaging, such as large scale space colonization or anything like that.
