There is a reason why they call it a 'cockpit'


Testosterone, most men have much more of this hormone in their bloodstream than women. The effects of testosterone are aggression, fearlessness, and generally being a 'asshole' (A quote from the wife's in 'The Right Stuff'). This evolved thru hundreds of thousands of years of men being the protectors of the family or tribe.

I enjoyed this movie, I thought that Ms. Larson's did a fine job and was it was wildly entertaining. Have I ever met a women who is as headstrong and confident as Ms. Larson's Captain Marvel? No.... But that does not mean that such a person does not exist.

Oh...yeah, sorry for people who did not see the movie... 'the reason they call it a cockpit'...was a quote in the movie from a asshole pilot who looked down on female pilots. This gave fuel and determination to the headstrong Ms. Marvel.

Movie context aside, here's an article explaining the origins of the word:
