A Lot of Evolution

Should the mind set that women are examined by one set of assumptions and men by another change? Sure, we’re not that different.

Does biology seem to play a bigger role that I want to acknowledge? Absolutely. Did y’all catch the PBS thing with the geneticist who believes he has traced the way peoples wandered (walked) across the globe, using a genetic marker? That’s a lot of biology — a lot of evolution. That’s the time it takes for people in warm climates to evolve a little taller and darker, and for people in cold climates to conserve heat by getting a little shorter, a little fairer. We haven’t spent anything like that much time working out a society where we treat people by things other than what we think we see.
