2. I do not for one second believe the study about assertive women and find It speaks more to ones own bias than society at large. Would you not hire an assertive female real estate agent or lawyer to represent you? There is proven market demand for assertive women!

Not sure if you are trying to appeal to authority here but that just shows how deep this has permeated in our society. Im not surprised. This started before the cold war and is slowly moving to critical mass. Take Ford (and his foundation) who have always been very involved in driving socialism. You thought he was a capitalist huh. Did u know he built a socialist community in South America, was a very active and vocal supporter of Hitlers socialism? His foundation continues the same work today https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2016/10/11/pers-o11.html
4. Dont take my word for it. Look around. Ever try to obtain the data set or research the funding behind these studies? You should. Try anyway. Its a labyrinth of mystery money, anonymous donors and foundations that just so happen to hail from the same school of thought. Oh and the supporting data is never available, ever. Proprietary they say. You just get the excerpts and lead lines. In other words, the message the funder wants to convey.
5. For fucks sake, read up on some history. Else, we are doomed to repeat the same shit again.
