I've been watching a particular TV show[1] on Netflix. At one point, the father of the monster-hunter family tells his daughter, "Our sons are trained to be soldiers. Our daughters, to be leaders."

There are ways to argue this away -- maybe most of the daughters choose to become accountants and plumbers and bakery owners instead -- but it really sounds like un-self-aware normalization of a 10:1 gender ratio.

(Admittedly, said daughter shows a strong interest in short- and medium-distance combat, and she's not nearly as weaselly or pushy as any of her male relatives that we've met. We see them maneuvering her in "leadership", boy-king-style. Maybe her father's just spinning her a line for weaselly convenience.)

[1] The quote I'm about to give is a mild spoiler, so I'm not giving the name of the show directly.
