great but common missunderstanding of evolution. men "are" not "designed" by or with the purpose for anything (that would be creationism). over the years stronger men survived and gave their genes to the next generation, same with women that where light and able to flee. those advantages survived the next generations and so on. when more and more society evolved, beauty ideals and preached roles where having an impact on evolution as well.

Exactly, evolution doesn't design anything. Natural selection just results in certain traits that lead to survival of the species. In a different environment, humans may have evolved differently.
