However, if one is to look at actual societies around the world, it becomes quite frankly visible that the male is the key.
What do I mean?
Let us review what the main feature of northern societies that accomplish great leaps in technology are and that of primitive third world, mostly tropical societies, are. The Mediterranean warm climates are a mid way point.
Of course the first thing anyone will say is that starving is almost impossible in the south as food is everywhere and no work is required. And here we come to the crux, no work is required, at least no really heavy work. Once predators are killed off, not even that kind of work is required. One would expect that under such conditions, science, arts and crafts would flourish, with all the spare time. None of it so.
The key characteristics of the third world males are: lazy, aggressive and selfish. The woman, in the paradise, is the worker, she does everything and the male just shows up to breed and eat. So why are these societies not flourishing but have continued to waller in poverty and have technologically not improved?
Indeed, as one goes further north, the male becomes more active, as more work is required in order to survive. At the very northern climes, where winter lasts 4-6 months and survival from the elements is a real question, the males are extremely active, first and foremost in preparing for winter and secondly in creating.
Again, if the Feminist thesis held true, these societies, where the males do all the heavy lifting should be in the rear of the utopian dream, for it is quite that, the utopian dream. As seen by real world evidence, where males are denigrated, effectively not needed and are not the over working, bread winners, poverty and social stagnation rules supreme. The Greeks were quickly conquered by the Romans when they denigrated their males from their roles and when homosexuality flourished. The Romans did the same 400 years later to the Germanic tribes, for the same reasons.
Feminism, like so many other Western humanistic fantasies proves out that it is just that, a fantasy, where historical and current reality need not apply. What we are witnessing now from the West is the same cycle of degeneration and final collapse and possible extinction that has plagued many a society in the past.
