Let C = the way men and women relate to each other in mixed groups

It is absolutely inherent that all three are different from each other. The fact that you're essentially arguing that A = B = C is, quite frankly, bizarre. It's not woke or novel or fighting the power; it's just plain wrong.

(2) (no two movies are exactly identical)


(3) So what if it doesn't have exactly the same quality?

This directly concedes the original point you were trying to rebut.

(4) You can go around until the end of time saying that "nothing's the same if we don't keep this thing purely X."

Irrelevant soapbox rant. Bonus points for being a strawman. It's on-topic for the thread, but has nothing to do with the fact that "band of brothers" stories are inherently changed when you add women, because men relate to women differently than they relate to other men.

It feels weird that I have to explain this.
