97. Aquatic Ape Hypothesis

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aquatic_ape_hypothesis

Morgan talked about this idea quite a bit.

If economic behavior is the defining issue - then it seems that feminists should place their efforts toward changing this. Otherwise, all the offshoots are just that and the root remains.

This is also my question about religious affiliation - how can females expect change if they're upholding one of the most potent aspects of repression - i.e. a patriarchal god. They must think it confers some benefit to them regardless of the harm.

And, of course, that also calls into question the issue of marriage itself.

Rather than language, these seem to be the real issues. Language is minor in comparison. It's nit picking and detracts from the bigger issues - and requires little to no actual investment of someone's life or her place in society - while the bigger issues do make some demands as in - what are you going to do and what do you sacrifice to do it. The physical act of upholding the status quo is a much bigger and louder statement than any word choice, imo.
