Though most of the arguments I'm reading are pretty ridiculous. It`s safe to say that before modern toys were even made, boys wanted to be great swordsmen, cowboys and indians, in primitive society still beat each other up and had semi-macho confrontations with each other. This you cannot deny.
And nobody is denying it, so you`re countering an argument that nobody has made. What`s the point of doing that?
It`s the "nature versus nurture" thing again. It doesn`t matter whether it`s a modern wealthy highly urbanised society or a paleolithic hunter-gatherer tribe. There`s still nurture and there`s still nature. Anyone who asserts that it`s all nature is still wrong and silly.
Just look at how much and how rapidly gendered stuff can and does change. That proves that it isn`t all nature. Might be some nature, might be no nature at all, can`t be all nature.
