is this much different from movies ?
charlie chaplin, rambo, batman... or just take any random set of movies and compare the male vs female set. men are ok bo get hurt or killed.
i suspect part of that might be rooted in the "disposability" of men - a woman is valuable, it's nine months until the offspring. males have been disposable - wars, exploration, scientific experiments...
so we have popculture products killing males left and right and we perceive that as being ok - because it is ok as proven by genetics and history
