You're looking at the effect, and not the cause, of the objection here. It's not that healing is a "lesser" task.The objection is that women are usually linked to healing stereotypically because healing is a "nurturing" role and women are supposed to be the "nurturers" in a family. Saying that all women heal is more along the lines of saying all women take care of the children, clean the house, and have dinner on the table when husband comes home.Cooking isn't a lesser profession, executive chefs are well respected... but people assume that all women can cook because of the nuclear vision of family, not many people assume all men can cook.
