I'm pointing out the absurdity of half the human population enslaved in jobs they hate to pay for things they don't really want (mortgages, car loans, etc), and the other half clamouring: "ooh, ooh, me too! Not fair that he gets to be a miserable downtrodden serf until he dies of a heart attack, and I don't!".
That in itself suggests to me that women are no smarter than men.
Your implicit value judgement here is that the only actions worth performing are those with monetary reward. You just dismissed a couple of billion full-time mothers as worthless parasites.
Look, I'm not saying a woman's place is in the home, barefoot and pregnant. If she wants to be a brain surgeon then I'm all for it. The fact remains, not many women are that bothered about being brain surgeons. Not many men are interested in being brain surgeons. That 3x more men than women want to be brain surgeons is of no consequence to the human race; nor, come to think of it, is it of any consequence that 3x as many women as men want to be hairdressers or nurses. There are some careers with a natural 50-50 split: teaching and design spring to mind.
People find their fulfilment in all sorts of ways. Although some of us enjoy our work (I do, mostly), work is not life: it's just a way to pay the bills. Very few people find self-actualization (or whatever word you want to use) in their career. Of all the women who have come and gone in my life, the most important thing to every single one of them was their children; nothing else even came close. That includes one or two who had high-profile careers. Are you going to criticize them for being gender traitors, or failing to live up to their potential?
