Aloha. It seems to me that men and women are forever programmed to behave in our “boxes”. We are changing that ever so slowly. Another thing I have learned is that “women’s work” is rewarded less, and valued less, without much thought about it.

This is especially true in science, where science and math are considered “smart” and child care and maid work is considered “dumb.” There is such a thing as emotional intelligence, behavioral intelligence and more, but it will probably be a while before people learn to change their programming.

Thanks for your article and your time. I do value that!
