Fox News Op-Ed Says Women’s Nature Is To Be Dominated By Men

I beg your pardon! Where do you get your information? It certainly doesn't come out of population studies. Yes, there are

independent, active, aggressive, domineering men and there are also 
dependent, passive, subordinate, acquiescent men; just as there are 
dependent, passive, subordinate, acquiescent women and there are also 
independent, active, aggressive, domineering women. 


Sex-role stereotypes and clinical judgments of mental health.

Gender roles are as delusional as those who place labels on men and women. 


Some women have a natural inclination to enjoy babies and children, others loath everything about them.

To make such broad generalizations about men and women reveals lack of understanding and knowledge about sex role stereotypes and their long range harmful consequences. 

If a dependent, passive, subordinate male goes to a therapist and to get therapy to attempt to change him to be an independent, aggressive, dominate male, there can be psychologically negative consequences for him. The same is true if an independent, active, dominate females goes to a therapist and to get therapy to attempt to change her to a dependent, passive, subordinate female, there can also be psychologically negative consequences for her. 

Who says males should be aggressive and women should be passive? Sounds like that old time religion to me. That is sick psychology and delusional theology.
This makes as much sense as expecting all men and all women to be heterosexual. 
Nonsense! This is Dark Ages reasoning and does not stand up to scrutiny!
