There is unfortunately hundreds or thousands of years of abuse of women seemingly world wide.
I'm thinking of foot binding in China, genital mutilation in Africa, and the revolting Arabs and Mormons.
And generally a lot of male only primitive tribal societies, and mistreatment due to silly beliefs about menstruation.
And generally unequal, pay probably most everywhere, still these days.
The modern "liberation" of women so that they can join the military forces in the USA,
I consider just another pointless folly.
There are enough weird sexual goings on in the animal kingdom to make one wonder,
if homo sapiens males don't belong to to the club of aberrations.
Praying mantises & spiders where the male often gets eaten after mating.
Species where males fight to the death to get to mate.
The octopus which dies after giving birth once.
Species where males harass females: whales and Chimpanzees.
The Duck's penis. (This one is so weird I won't give details here, if interested the data can be easily found).
The male peacock's tail.
Species where only the alpha males get to mate: wolves.
Species where males kill infants, when they take over a pride: lions etc.
Seems nature quite often doesn't play very nicely.
There is no reason what-so-ever to consider homo sapiens the pinnacle of evolution,
or even an ideal solution in its environments.
In the evolutionary time scale, we are but an exceedingly brief experiment.
It may be well to remember the cockroach is a much more time tested model,
"It is suggested that, compared with the cockroach, humans may be 'a passing evolutionary novelty'.
The cockroach has been on Earth for 250-300 million years,
and modern cockroaches are more similar to their ancient fossil ancestors than any other insect in existence today.
In contrast, Homo sapiens first appeared around 100,000 years ago."
