<< Imo, this does not mean that these are the cream de la cream (outer right
fraction of the bell-shaped curve), and that the bulk is substandard. I
rather think that women would do perfectly allright if they were willing
to work really hard, which men do not like either, but do.

GOOD - IMO we are in agreement here. I agree with the basic premise (* in
developed countries with public education and polite society)

*The only thing I disagree with is the bell curve part of the statement -
only because women haven't the social status ( in many countries) or the
( who still have to around the fathers or brothers, imprisioned, taking
beatings for trying leave home, etc) so the statistics would be skewed,

But I also think that ignoring this brutal truth about willingness and hard
would be a big mistake. The same thing holds true for every one of our
"sanctioned victim" beliefs.
