Heh. Ross the Riveter?

From here.

I read it as a fairly deep analysis of the way women's abilities to do certain things are judged on an apriori basis, whereas men are mostly assumed to be able to do anything should they wish to try it.

The original Rosie the Riveter poster was intended to reassure Americans during WWII that women could, indeed, do factory work.
