Really impressive article. This articulates a ton of what I've been thinking about the past few months. People understand evolution at a very rudimentary level, but its implications go so much further. It's completely senseless to think that men and women should be equal in all things.. but here we are.

I think it's never been easy to have a sensible discussion of the natural place of men and women in the scheme of things but you've made a good attempt. It mostly gets bedeviled by feminist man-bitching, sexual mind-games on the one hand and defensive male bragging /bravado mind-games on the other.

In my view that sane discussion would need to encompass a complex reality in which some women can make great leaders and chief executives but MOST women want a basically semi-patriarchal, semi-submissive relationship to their husbands. I'm not holding my breath.

Excellent discussion! Far better than some other things I have read on the topic recently.

I find myself wondering if this whole cultural maladaption will just breed itself out, with more biologically functional pair bonding patterns out competing the less functional. It requires culture to be a bit more genetically transmitted, or at least more family transmission, but then this might be exactly the type of culture that is.

The Long Peace bought this, The Long Wars being made and lurched into by DC and the Elites will change matters.
