U Such A WOW

Just because a woman stands up for herself doesn't mean she is telling a man to sit down.

Agreed

1) The primary goal is to establish a patrilineal system of inheritance. Yes. Almost always a child's mother is not in dispute. Ask Solomon.

2) Power over others. This is something that feeds egos. In many ways it is infantile.

3) Might equals Right. When logic fails. But hitting someone does not make the attacker right. Again, an infantile reaction.

4) Monotheism. Yes. One God, and by the way, "it's a guy."

5) Primogeniture. A really cool trick. The rival who is male says the king's kids can't take over unless there are males. Hence, as always, half the population gets pushed aside over plumbing issues.
