Savarna families get their daughters educated but don't want them to work. The education is only a marker to show how much they can afford to spend - an indicator of how affluent they are so they can get "better" prospects for their arranged marriage. +
The same is true but only in a limited sense for men who own a business or are agriculturalists. Many Savarna women use further education as an excuse to delay marriage, seldom being allowed to pursue a career. What's funny is that they love to hate on reservation policy saying+
"Those seats got wasted" without ever admitting that the seats they occupy simply to "improve" marriage prospects or to delay marriage are the ones that are being wasted, not the ones that were reserved. The fact that premiere institutes like IITs don't fill seats reserved+
for SC/ST/OBC categories (seats wasted) is ignored, but those Savarna IITians moving overseas, becoming writers, bankers, YouTubers or TVF founders is celebrated, not criticised for wasting seats. Savarna men secure degrees only as a status symbol while working on dad's business+
& exploit Bahujan labour, but criticise reservation policies for casteism. Both men & women abuse the education system to waste these precious resources to not just deny it to Bahujan peoples but use it to oppress those very people, turning around to blame them. #ShamelessSavarna

In Chak De, for no fault of his own, because of his faith, he is branded a traitor, loses his livelihood, his career & becomes a social outcast. That's much more than run of the mill fragile male ego, or whatever you wanna call it.
From the way he was treated bec of his faith, he defines the necessity of fairness in the game where the only parameter that defines u is ur skill on the field. He wants to eliminate any bias & makes performance the sole test of worth. Not just bias against women but ALL biases.
Players have to overcome personal biases & prejudices b4 they play as a team & fight against the anti-women's-team bias as a whole. They overcome biases of region, class, language etc. among themselves to grow as a team. That's intersectionalism if I've ever seen it in a movie.
