    Governments always 'deal with' things like this in one way or another, even if indirectly, due to the knock-on effects of their other activities. Social issues cannot be abstracted from the state-provided framework they exist in.

    Oh, not this one again....

    Who says it's 'your income' in the first place?
    Taxation is a necessary evil and governments should only use it to provide necessary services that can't be effectively provided by private individuals, businesses or charities.

    There are many charities who support getting more women into certain professions and improving quality of life for women. Let them deal with these issues. Not the state.

    I probably should have noticed this earlier, but for someone who calls themselves an anarchist, you seem awfully pro-state.

    You are conceptualising the state as something infringing ('necessarily' or not) on a pre-existing, naturalised capitalist society. I'm saying it's not, it's an integral part of such a society. The key characteristics of capitalism, i.e. private property in means of production, a market economy, etc, do not exist despite state intervention but because of it.

    I'm an anarchist, but I still have preferences about what I'd rather the state did within the context of a state society.

    'Dame' is one syllable, and the direct equivalent of 'Sir'.
    Don't hear it used regularly these days, but I tip my hat to you nonetheless :hat2: That one completed escaped my mind.
