It's a conscious choice "we're" making as parents, when "we" encourage our little boys to grow up strong💪, but not our little girls.
A choice that can only be interpreted as "I'm OK leaving *one* of you relatively unable to defend themselves in future."
If little boys and little girls were taught to pursue physical strength to the same extent, it wouldn't solve anything, but it would certainly make things a damn sight better.
For me, choosing to discriminate in that way, borders on parental neglect.
While we must fight evil with all we have, it isn't going anywhere. It hasn't in 5000s years. So wherever there's a power imbalance, there will be those who exploit it.
So I want the mind of every creep to contain the thought "That girl might kick my ass."
