The small biological differences between the bonobo and the chimp leads to very different gender roles. Not cultural factors.
I don't think we're actually in a position to say there isn't a cultural component to the chimp-bonobo behavioural differences. There is a biological component, that's not in question. But there's also clear environmental differences, and cultural differences can't be that easily dismissed.
