I hope this doesn't get anyone's knickers in a twist. Essentially, the pre-cursor civilization in my universe is a telepathic avian species and like our birds they have gendered behaviors. Most females do not go into the government or any career as once they lay eggs they're psychologically bound to the "nest" (though some females choose not to mate due to this) and while they have abandoned violence, males can be very aggressive during the mating and nesting season. There's was once an intensely violent society before embracing pacifism, but these patterns persist, including power struggles on their governing councils. Do you think the woke crowd will be out for my blood?
