I could, I just dislike doing so when the person who originally said something can no longer post.
For example, the problems with education are inherent not so much to gender. It's much more a symptom of the one-size-fits-all approach so inherent to so much of our society.
I also disagree with attempting to separate the two into two threads, not only due to the OP's confirmation of the lack of such a natural binary divide but because of the inextricable link between the two. That said, I'm going to use the stereotypical terms because they're impossible to avoid in a conversation like this.
Back in the day, and I don't know which wave of feminism it was, used to be well-known for things like not wanting doors opened for them, insisting on splitting the check, and so on. That has gone away, such that men are often still expected to open doors, get the entire check, and so on.
We have two cultures fighting for dominance, one in which women are dainty ladies and one in which women are equal to men. People who strongly push for the concepts of one often find themselves slipping into patterns of the other.
For example, back in the day, a woman was completely dependent on a man. If the woman ended up pregnant, she would be effectively helpless without child support payments. The woman had no choice as to whether she would become pregnant, which has changed today where abortion is legal. We maintain the concept that the woman can decide not to have a child, or even give it up for adoption, but we can still force a man into child support payments if he doesn't want a child.
Female stereotypes are vehemently stamped out, but male stereotypes are still perpetuated.http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMalehttp://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale
Any of the solutions I might offer, though, would be inextricably linked to feminism.
For example, one friend of mine lamented many years ago how women generally don't get as good of a partner as they deserve. I forget the exact wording, but it was basically about if you grade everyone on a scale of 1 to 10, men would generally be lower on average. You might end up with a 6 male getting an 8 female on average, for random numbers.
I have no idea if it's true or not, but it's very common to attempt to ask out someone higher than yourself. I'm probably not "worthy" of Kate Upton but I'd still want to take the shot at asking her if I could, and since men generally do the asking out much more, they reach higher.http://www.cbsnews.com/news/why-dont-women-propose-to-men/
I think the question for this one would be: how can we encourage girls to be the ones who ask out and to propose? Once we get to ~50% of women asking and proposing, those kinds of issues will be over.
Other issues arise when we have expectations of men that we don't have of women:
Noting Duke’s finding that a rape occurs when a panel concludes based on 50.01 percent probability that a student had reached an incapacitating level of intoxication that rendered the student unable to give consent to sex, McLeod’s lawyer asked Wasiolek what happened if both students were drunk. In that case, presumably, “they have raped each other and are subject to expulsion.” Not so, stated Wasiolek: “Assuming it is a male and female, it is the responsibility in the case of the male to gain consent before proceeding with sex.” How this policy can be reconciled with Title IX must remain a mystery.
This is not a belief isolated to Duke University, but they came up recently because they're being sued so the name is fresh in my mind.
I don't honestly know whether feminists have latched onto cases like this and decried the concept that they're just delicate flowers that require special protections that men don't need. However, I've seen things like this:http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2014/05/should-women-get-paid-menstrual-leave-days/370789/
Many of the women that I've discussed this with say that, unless you have some kind of serious medical condition, there's some real insult to the idea that they have to be pampered and can't handle the job because they're PMSing. As someone with medical issues of my own, it's not difficult to relate.
Granted that being agendered probably gives me a very different perspective from a cismale, so I could be very wrong on some of this stuff.
