Again trying to avoid Your Mom
t3h D34dly Wall of Text, but cultural change takes a very, very long time along with a few cataclysmi . . . catalism . . . catastrophic events usually involving a general named after a Native American or a plane named after . . . YOUR [Col. Tibetts'--Ed.] MOM. One of the survivors of Hiroshima worked in a bank. As she smiled retelling it, the women came to work a half-an-hour earlier than the men to clean the bank!
"That doesn't happen now!"
Women still get treated differently--Anax
can write more about mainland attitudes--but over the long term
Same with racism in
Heck, consider how attitudes have changed with regards to accepting, say, gay marriage over the time of existence of this very The Captain

And not to get particularly Godwinny, but the solution for separate cars seems to stem from the same place as the solutions in Saudi Arabia to cover all women to protect them from men.
In a lot of [cis
-hegemonic white privileged--Ed.] male societies. Consider the whole "honor killing" crapolla that is not actually Islamic but cultural. You see that in none "A-Rabby" cultures.

she is got beaten, nearly murdered, good thing she was not raped. I have previously blathered about a film from the 2000s Japan--Freeze Me
--about a woman who is shamed for being raped years before. Being "spoiled." The sources of such is another Wall of Text.
Back to the specific point, could you fault Anax
for wanting his daughter when she was a teen to travel in an "all girls" train to school or her for wanting to travel on one? But all "Gram
's Mom Jokes[Available on 8-track and cassette.--Ed.]" aside, I understand how the "solution" appears to perpetuate the problem. See "Separate but Equal."
